spurs v wolverhampton wanderers notes

28.08.1933 To mark Tottenham's first home game back in the First Division at the start of the 1933-34 season, they hired the Band of the Grenadier Guards to play before the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.  The band could not make it for an evening kick off and so the time was brought forward to the afternoon, meaning that the Monday fixture was won by Spurs, but in front of a much reduced crowd, as many fans were unable to attend.
10.10.1959 Hollywood actress Jayne Mansfield attended the match and waved to the crowd from the Press box.
06.02.1982 The new West Stand at White Hart Lane is opened by Sir Stanley Rous - President of FIFA for the match against Wolves.
15.05.2004 Wolverhampton Wanderers' last game in their first Premier League season before being relegated.
