1962 FA Cup FinalTottenham Hotspur 3 (Greaves, Smith, Blanchflower) Burnley 0

Tottenham Hotspur : Brown, Baker, Henry, Blanchflower, Norman, Mackay, Medwin, White, Smith, Greaves, Jones.



Burnley : Blacklaw, Angus, Elder, Adamson, Cummings, Miller, Connolly, McIlroy, Pointer, Robson, Harris.

Tottenham went into this final as the current holders, and it didn’t take much time for them to open the scoring when in the 3rd minute Jimmy Greaves slipped past a Burnley defender and then placed the ball just inside the post to score, the remainder of the first half the play by both sides was very cautious and it was patience that was the keyword, rather than passion.

With the second half just 5 minutes old, a Burnley attack on the wing, resulted with a cross to Jimmy Robson whose low shot went through the legs of the Tottenham goalkeeper to make it 1-1.

Bobby Smith restored Tottenham’s advantage just a minute later with a shot on the turn within the penalty area, Burnley thought they had equalised again, but the linesman had his flag up for offside as Jimmy Robson put the ball in the net, in the 80th minute the Burnley defender Tommy Cummings handled the ball in the penalty area and the ref had no option but award a penalty, up stepped the cool and calm Danny Blanchflower who put the ball away, this was virtually game over for Burnley as Tottenham virtually kept possession for the remaining minutes of the match and ended up as winners by 3 goals to 1.
