Steve Archibald : Aberdeen or Spurs ?

Postby Gabe » Thu Jul 20, 2017 3:29 pm

Steve Archibald played three matches on May 1980 (16th vs N.Ireland - 28th vs Poland & 31st vs Hungary). Football websites disagree about his club (e.g. Londonhearts have Tottenham , Eu-football have Aberdeen).

Wiki says "After winning the Scottish Premier Division title in 1980, he moved to London club Tottenham Hotspur for £800,000" and football websites tell about "May 1980" without a precise signing date.

I am not able to check contemporary newspapers, so I ask for your help to solve this doubt.

The exact date of his contract help me/us to understand which was really his club when Achibald played those matches.

The Glasgow Herald of 13 May 1980 reported Steve Archibald's move to Spurs and said it happened "yesterday". i.e. 12 May 1980.
