On This Day in 1961: Double delight for Tottenham

Tottenham sealed the league with a 2-1 triumph against Sheffield Wednesday on April 17, 1961, and on this day 59 years ago, Spurs headed to Wembley to take on Leicester in the FA Cup with second half goals from Bobby Smith and Terry Dyson sealing a 2-0 win.
