May, 1990 FA Youth Cup Final (1st Leg) v Middlesbrough (a) Won 2 - 1 Potts, Houghton
This was the club's most successful youth team, in terms of winning competitions, since 1970 when the youth team included Steve Perryman and Graeme Souness. The team was managed by Keith Waldon who regarded the team's win over Manchester City at Maine Road in the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup as their best performance of the season. Spurs won 2 - and in Waldon's words, "The scoreline really flattered City. I thought we were far superior on the day. To beat City on their own ground and to do it so convincingly, was magnificent."
