Tottenham Hotspur v AFC Bournemouth Match History & Records 1941-2018
AFC Bournemouth were founded in 1890 as Boscombe St. John's Institute FC but the club folded nine years later and were reformed as Boscombe FC in 1899.
1923 saw the club change its name once more to Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, which was the same year of their election to the Football League.
The Cherries used to play in red shirts with white sleeves but changed to their now familiar red & black stripes in 1971.
The first meetings between Spurs & Bournemouth came during World War Two in February 1941 in the Football League War Cup with Spurs winning 4-1 at home and 6-1 in Hampshire.
The two clubs were drawn against each other in the 5th round of the 1956-57 FA Cup with the Third Division Cherries gaining an historic 3-1 win over Tottenham.
Five friendlies were played during the years 1972 to 2009 with Spurs winning four of the games with one drawn.
The final change of name for the Cherries saw them adopt AFC Bournemouth in 1972 under manager John Bond, together with their current club badge, which pays homage to Cherries legend Dickie Dowsett.
AFC Bournemouth were 2014-15 Championship winners and gained promotion to the Premier League - the first time the club had ever played in the Top Flight of English Football.
Current Cherries Defender Adam Smith was signed from Spurs in January 2014 after spending time on loan with them three years previously.
Spurs did the double over the Cherries in 2015-16 winning 5-1 at Dean Court in October 2015 and 3-0 at White Hart Lane in March 2016. Harry Kane scored five of those eight Spurs goals.
The Premier League game in October 2016 at the Vitality Stadium (Dean Court) finished in a goalless draw when Spurs could have gone top of the Table if they had won.
Tottenham had a comprehensive 4-0 home win against Bournemouth in April 2017 with goals from Moussa Dembele, Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Vincent Janssen.
The Premier League match played at Wembley Stadium in October 2017 was settled by a Christian Eriksen goal scored just after half-time.
