Terry's all goal-d

Double legend Terry Dyson turns the clock back 48 years to reflect on a memorable win over Arsenal in July's issue of hotspur - out now.

The 4-3 win against the old enemy at the Lane on August 26, 1961 features as the 'Match of the Month' in the club's official magazine.

Terry, who scored in the double-clinching FA Cup Final win against Leicester City in 1961, made Spurs history against the Gunners that day - and it's a personal milestone that still stands.

The diminuitive winger became the first player to score a hat-trick for Spurs against Arsenal and he remains the only Spurs player to do so. In fact, only three players on both sides of the North London divide have managed it - Terry, Ted Drake and Alan Sunderland.

"I get asked about that game on a regular basis," said Terry, a welcome visitor to the Lane at the end of last season for the win against West Brom. "It's certainly one of the most enjoyable matches I played for Spurs and an occasion I like to remind Arsenal supporters about!"
