Spurs Firsts Number 10

Throughout our history we have been a club of firsts, having set some unique football records. We feature just 10.

Best Start to a Season

Bill Nicholson’s fantastic team of the early 1960s became the first club of the 20th century to win both the top-flight division of the Football League and the FA Cup in one season (1960-61). In winning the old Division One title, we achieved the most consecutive league victories from the start of a season, winning 11 games - starting with a 2-0 triumph over Everton at White Hart Lane on August 20, 1960, through to a 4-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on October 1, 1960. It is a top flight record that still stands to this day.
