Littlewoods Cup 1989

Southend United versus Spurs

29 June 2017

Another Littlewoods Cup image, this time from 1989 as Southend played Tottenham

Having gone down 0-1 in the 1st leg at White Hart Lane, Southend United gave the might of Tottenham Hotspur (who featured Paul Gascoigne and Gary Lineker) a massive fright, with the First Division team running out winners on away goals after extra time.
 
Gary Bennett scored twice on the night in a 3-2 Southend United win, and can be seen here celebrating one of his goals.
 
 
 
Thanks to David Goody and Peter Miles.
