Results for Ron Henry

VIDEO 31 Bale goals & Spurs history today, Chivers, Sherwood, Villa, Henry

8:30 am
Morning Spurs fans we'll start the day with a look at pieces of our history as it happened today and we'll conclude with a video of Gareth Bale's 31 goal season in 2012/13.

First up let's wish a Happy 43rd Birthday to our former Spurs central defender David Tuttle who blessed our ranks between 1989 and 1994.

Double-winner Ron Henry, who sadly passed away in Dec (RIP), scored his only goal for us today in 1965 v Man U (h) 1-0. He collected the Football League First Division - 1961, FA Cup – 1961, 1962 and the European Cup Winners Cup – 1963 with us.

The double back then was considered impossible and in 1963 helped us become the first British side to win a major European trophy. As ever we have to show sides how it's done so they can follow in our footsteps.

In 1974 Big Chiv, that's Martin Chivers if you were unaware, smashed a hat trick against Birmingham City at White Hart Lane in a 4-2 win with Mike Dillon scoring his one and only goal for the club.

In 1982 we beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 6-1 at White Hart Lane where Argentinean import Ricky Villa scored a hat trick to celebrate the opening of the West Stand by Sir Stanley Rous.

In 1999 against Coventry City at White Hart Lane midfielder Tim Sherwood made his Spurs debut in a 0-0 draw.

In 2012 against Liverpool at Anfield Tottenham recorded the clubs 200th draw in the Premier League in a goalless game.

Also in the same game in 2012 against Liverpool at Anfield former star Gareth Bale made the 100th Premier League appearance of his career.

A win tonight for Ron Henry

It would be wholly appropriate if Tottenham Hotspur won in style tonight in the FA Cup Third Round Replay against Burnley at White Hart Lane.

A win tonight for Ron Henry


Ron Henry played in the 'Impossible Double' winning team of 1960/1961 and played in every game that season, He then retained the FA Cup in 1962 against Burnley and helped Spurs become the first British side to win a major European trophy when we won the European Cup Winners Cup in 1963.

Of course other clubs have since followed in our footsteps but it was a Tottenham side with Ron Henry that showed British clubs what could be achieved with the right approach. It is a lesson the current Spurs side need to learn.

Today was the funeral of Ron Henry, a left-back for us during those triumphant times. It is rather appropriate we play Burnley on the same day and it would be fitting if the Spurs of today produced a display and a result to commemorate a former hero.

RIP Ron Henry.
