    Spurs certainly had some good players from Scotland. There are 3 I remember ‘escaped’. Bill Nicholson wrote in his autobiography that he tried to sign Denis Law from Huddersfield but Bill Shankly would not let him go. That was just before the double, and I think they signed Les Allen instead. Then in 1963 they wanted Alex Scott from Rangers, but he went to Everton in the end. Finally I remember in early 1970 being quite excited about maybe Peter Cormack to Spurs. In the end they bought Martin Peters, and Cormack ended up at Liverpool a year or two later.

      According to the newspaper reports of the time, the signing of Alex Young was a ‘done deal’ until he decided to join Everton at the last minute.

      Spurs have had many good Scottish players in their trophy winning teams from the 1901 FA cup side to Alan Hutton (?) in the 2008 Carling Cup win.

        You may be right about Alex Young, but Alex Scott certainly made the last minute switch to Everton. Alex Young signed for Everton in November 1960, can’t see Spurs trying to sign him at that stage somehow. As I say, you may be right, but I’m not convinced !

          Your right, Chris – got my Alexs mixed up it was Alex Scott in February, 1963. Thanks for that.
