Spurs 8 Southampton 0
SPURS ended their run of four games without a win in emphatic style as Southampton were crushed at White Hart Lane as Jack Tresardern's side got their promotion quest back on track.
Tresardern's decision to make three changes to the side that had cut themselves adrift from the chasing pack paid dividends and his side found themselves 5-0 up at the interval with goals from Willie Evans, and two apiece from George Hunt and Joe Meek.
Meek, a tricky little inside forward from Newcastle, completed his hat-trick in only his second game for the club after his transfer from Bradford Park Avenue on 59 minutes and then played a vital role in the seventh goal when he was brought down for a penalty allowing Hunt to grab himself a hat-trick from the spot.
The rout was completed when Willie Evans headed home a Fred Sergeant cross to seal the points for Spurs in style.
Team: Nicholls; Ward, Buckingham, Howe, Rowe, Grice, Sargent, Meek, Hunt, Duncan, W. Evans.
