    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR TODAY (SATURDAY) WON THE FIRST ALL-LONDON ENGLISH FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION CUP FINAL WHEN THEY BEAT CHELSEA BY TWO GOALS TO ONE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM.

    TOTTENHAM WON THE ENTERTAINING MATCH WITH GOALS BY RIGHT WINGER JIMMY ROBERTSON AND OUTSIDE LEFT FRANK SAUL. BOBBY TAMBLING SCORED FOR CHELSEA FOUR MINUTES BEFORE THE FINAL WHISTLE.

    THERE WAS A CAPACITY CROWD OF 100-THOUSAND AT THE STADIUM TO WATCH SPURS WIN THE THEIR FIFTH F.A. CUP FINAL IN FIVE APPEARANCES IN THE FINAL.

    SPURS WERE WORTHY WINNERS, ALTHOUGH THE GAME NEVER REACHED CLASSIC HEIGHTS. BOTH TEAMS MANAGED THE BALL WELL IN SLIPPERY CONDITIONS.

    JIMMY ROBERTSON PUT SPURS ONE UP AFTER 44 MINUTES WITH A KICK TO A BALL WHICH REBOUNDED TO HIM OFF CHELSEA CENTRE HALF RON HARRIS. PETER BONNETTI, THE CHELSEA GOALKEEPER HAD NO CHANCE OF STOPPING THE FAST BALL.

    IN THE SECOND HALF CHELSEA SHOWED MORE FIRE, BUT COULD NOT MATCH THE INCISIVE ATTACK BY SPURS. FRANK SAUL'S GOAL CAME IN THE 67TH MINUTE FROM A TREMENDOUS KICK INTO THE CORNER OF THE CHELSEA GOAL.

    CHELSEA AT ONE STAGE SEEMED LIKELY TO MAKE THINGS EQUAL. TAMBLING HEADED IN THE BALL WHEN TOTTENHAM'S GOALKEEPER MISFIELDED. THEN, CHELSEA SHOWED NEW VIGOUR AND KEPT THE SPUR TO FORWARD LINE. IN CHECK HOWEVER, THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO SCORE AN EQUALISER.
