02.01.1993 Spurs were the away side in this Third Round tie against Marlow, who moved the match to White Hart Lane to maximise their gate receipts from the match.

Coming from the Diadora League Premier Division, Marlow were one of two clubs who have entered every FA Cup competition since it's inception.  The dream started to crash when Teddy Sheringham scored in the 19th minute, with Nicky Barmby scoring the second goal before the interval.  Vinny Samways hit a third in the 50th minute and Marlow captain and Spurs fan David Lay scored in the 70th minute to give the Berkshire side some hope of a replay, but Samways got his second shortly after and Barmby completed his brace with a late effort to round off the 5-1 win.

Teams : 
Marlow -  Gary Lester; John Franks (John Regan 56), Colin Ferguson, Billy Hubbick, Kevin Stone, Anthony Dell, David Lay (c), John Caesar (Kenny Glasgow 82), Mark Watkins, Ansil Bushay, Al-James Hannigan.

13.01.1973 A trip to Hartsdown Park was a massive step down for Spurs, but they did not take their Southern League opponents for granted and ran out professional 6-0 winners Margate, who had former Spur Eddie Clayton playing for them.

A 25th minute free-kick by Martin Chivers was blocked back out to his right, but the striker smashed the rebound back past Chic Brodie in the Margate goal, who might have stopped it, to give Tottenham the lead.  Margate battled commendably to hold the score to 0-1 at the break.  In fact, they had a couple of chances with Clayton lobbing a shot just wide and then creating a chance for John Baber to have a cross-shot that was too high.  Norman Fusco nearly caught Pat Jennings out, but the Irish keeper got back to save the effort.  Steve Perryman had to leave the field and be substituted after picking up a bruised knee.

It took only four minutes of the second half for Chivers to net his second after Ray Evans' cross had been volleyed into the goalmouth and touched on by substitute Jimmy Pearce, who then scored himself from close range following Martin Peters' flick on to Ralph Coates' 55th minute cross.  Peters rose to head a fourth after 75 minutes after Golly had nodded on a long throw, then Cyril Knowles ran through the Margate defence to slot home his first goal of the season in the 83rd minute.  It was left to John Pratt to round off the scoring with the sixth Spurs goal three minutes before the end, as he shot home.  Only a rapid rush from his line by Brodie saved David Houston from embarrassment, when Pearce tried to seize on his weak back-pass and Summers had to clear a Chivers effort off the line to deny him a hat-trick.

Teams : 
Margate -  Brodie, Summers, Butterfield, Fusco, Paton, Houston, Baber (Ferry 70), Clayton, Barry, Brown, Walker.
Spurs -  Jennings, Evans, England, Naylor, Knowles, Pratt, Perryman (Pearce 34), Peters (c), Coates, Chivers, Gilzean
Ref : -  John Homewood (Sunbury) 
Attendance : -   Officially 8,500 (record Margate crowd), a total of 14,169 has been quoted in some sources

13.01.1923 Worksop Town swapped venues to have their "home" tie at White Hart Lane and almost squeaked a late winner, when Rippon lifted the ball over goalkeeper Blake's head and much to Tottenham's relief, the ball bounced off the top of the bar and was kicked clear to take the game to a replay after this 0-0 draw.
