Archive Of Photographs From Tottenham’s Three Cup Ties With Hull City

Tottenham and Hull have met in the FA Cup on three occasions. When researching for the blog on Spurs Record against Hull in the Cup, I discovered that I had photographs relating to all three ties, including the game in January, 1907 from before Tottenham’s entry into the Football League.

The photographs come from past programmes and newspaper cuttings in the ‘wlhatwhl archives’ in other words, from my collection of Tottenham memorabilia.

1906-07

The tie in 1907 went to three matches with the second replay at White Hart Lane. The photograph is of the Spurs team for the first match at White Hart Lane. The best-known Tottenham player from that time is Vivian Woodward. He was missing for the second replay as he had been injured in the previous match and Herbert Chapman who scored the only game of the match replaced him at centre-forward. Chapman, famously enjoyed success as manager of Huddersfield and Arsenal. The Spurs team also included three players with connections to the famous 1901 FA Cup winning team – Sandy Tait, Tom Morris and Ted Hughes. Tait and Morris were in the Cup winning team while Hughes played in the first match of the Cup run but lost his place through injury.

A last minute penalty at Hull earned the home side a well-deserved draw. They had played from the 3rd minute with ten men due to injury and Ted Ditchburn was given no chance with the late penalty.

The replay the following Wednesday resulted in a comfortable 2 – 0 win for Spurs. Both goals were scored in the first half with Sonny Walters opening the scoring with a header.

1980-81

Two late goals saw Spurs through against 3rd Division Hull in January, 1981 – substitute Garry Brooke scoring the first with seven minutes to play and setting up a last minute goal for Steve Archibald.
