v. Spurs (1980/81)

Pairing the white away shorts with the shirts and socks of the home kit solved a multitude of clashes in the first adidas kit era (1980-82), the most notable instance coming in an FA Cup tie at Tottenham in April 1981. Mike Smith’s Tigers had made it to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup after defeating Halifax, Blyth Spartans (at the third attempt) and Doncaster, to earn a trip to White Hart Lane, but the tie against top flight Tottenham resulted in a 2-0 elimination, with goals from Brook and Archibald.
