In this series attempts to undercover a few pics that you (hopefully) may not have seen for a while rather than the same ones that keep coming around. We seem to have spent a lot of time in the treatment room so there's also some fresh air and a brisk round of golf.
Starting in October ’62 its flu jab day as Peter Baker goes under the needle much to the enjoyment of his team mates.
Next it’s back to the early 50’s and Alf Ramsey receives treatment in the old West Stand treatment room whilst manager Arthur Rowe (left) looks on.
On the other side is Cyril Poynton who spent nearly fifty years with the club, starting as a player in the early 20’s, he was later trainer & physiotherapist.
The last character (we think) is the club doctor Dr.Tughan.
After that it’s back to 1938 and Johnny Morrison receives attention for a head wound after the win over Chesterfield in 1938.
Coming more up to date we find Martin Peters is the target of the pitch side camera man in the FA Cup game with Forest in 1975.
Around the same time his chap wandered around the ground. Here its 1972 and the obit in question is our sixth season in European football. This chap was still around in ’78. He was not called an astronaut, his title had Spurs in it somewhere and if anyone remembers do tell. (aspuronaut ?).
Not sure the outfit is NASA approved doesn’t look too airtight too me.
OK time for an action pic and this is George Robb. He served Spurs from 1944 onwards in two spells. First as an amateur as he did not want to give up teaching. He would miss midweek away games due to work commitments. He won 17 amateur caps for England. He turned professional in 1953 and scored away to Charlton in his first game. The outside left notched 58 in total. He won one England cap and three at ‘B’ level, also playing for the Football League. His career was ended by a serious leg injury and he returned to teaching.
Here he is seen leaping over the Sunderland goalie in May 1954 at White Hart Lane.
This next one is Glenn Hoddle who could almost make the ball talk but he doesn’t seem quite so at ease with apples. Exactly why he is juggling them isn’t clear.
Then we have a young looking chairman in Daniel Levy here with the K-Men. Ledley King and Freddie Kanoute.
As for that top image, its 1924 and the daily Mails Golf Competition for professional footballers.
Here we find four of or lads, Turnbull (Arsenal), then Frank Osborne, the South African born England international. Bert Smith, who was spotted playing for the army and this led to him being a guest player before signing professional forms. He won two England caps and played for the Football League. He was later a coach at the Northfleet Nursery. W. Field (QPR) and Charlie Walters a member of the 1921 Cup winners where he won rave reviews and Billy Sage. Billy only played a few games for us but he appeared at center half and forward as well as on the wing. (Spurs), W. Sage (Spurs)
In case you’re eager for the next set of Every Picture it runs first on Facebook in the first instance so do check the links below and then gathers here when each set is complete, when possible, see above.
As we try to catch images that have not been seen recently, hopefully, it does look back over the years rather than the current crop but if you have any Spurs related pics from any era that you think might fit the bill then do contact me, again see below.
