Former Tottenham and Wales winger, Terry Medwin, has sadly died at the age of 91.

Medwin was part of the famous double-winning Spurs squad of 1960/61 and made 215 appearances in all competitions for the Lilywhites, scoring 72 goals. The tricky winger made 15 appearances in that double-winning season, contributing five goals, and then played his part as Spurs retained the FA Cup in 1962.

"Tottenham is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our former player, Terry Medwin," Spurs announced in a statement on Wednesday. "Terry was part of our double-winning side in 1961 and made 215 appearances in all competitions, scoring 72 goals.

"Our thoughts are with Terry's family and friends at this impossibly sad time."

Born in Swansea, Medwin began his career at his hometown club and made his debut for Wales in 1953. He scored 57 goals in 147 league appearances for Swansea before joining Spurs for £25,000 in May 1956.

Medwin represented Wales at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, where they reached the quarter-finals before being defeated by eventual winners Brazil. His winning goal in the 2-1 victory over Hungary was Wales' last goal at a World Cup until Gareth Bale converted a penalty at the 2022 tournament.

After retiring from playing, Medwin managed Cheshunt and coached at Cardiff, Fulham and Norwich before returning to Swansea as John Toshack's assistant, where he played a crucial role in their rise through the leagues in the late 1970s and 1980s.
