Spurs v Leicester City 1961 FA CUP FINAL DVD

Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City 1961 FA Cup Final The day that another piece of footballing history was created, as Spurs become the first Club in the 20th Century to achieve the treasured League and FA Cup double. Not since Aston Villa in 1897 had this been attained, and with their own brand of attacking football few doubted that Spurs were the finest team in the land. Having won the championship in style, Spurs were odds on favourites to walk away with the cup in their first ever Wembley appearance, but in goal for Leicester that afternoon was a young man named Gordon Banks, who would have his moments of glory beneath the twin towers, but was unable to prevent Spurs from creating history on this occasion. Leicester frustrated Spurs in the early exchanges, but were no doubt hampered by an injury to their full-back Chalmers mid-way through the first half. Spurs looked to capitalise and were unfortunate to see Cliff Jonesâ„¢ goal disallowed for off-side offence in the 38th minute and the first half ended without score. The deadlock was eventually broken in the 66th minute when England striker Bobby Smith latched onto a pass from Dyson, turned and smashed the ball past Banks. The goal naturally lifted Spurs, and nine minutes later the victory was sealed, as Smith returned the compliment and crossed for Dyson to head home the second and complete the double. Spurs captain and Footballer of the Year Danny Blanchflower led his team up the famous 39 steps to receive the Cup, and cap a landmark day for the Club. It had been 40 years since they last had their hands on the famous trophy, and now it was on its way back to White Hart Lane to complete the most successful season in the Clubâ„¢s illustrious history. So now relive this historic victory for one of the finest clubs in English football, as we bring you extended highlights of the final in this specially produced DVD.
