The 1987 F.A. Cup Final- More than a distant memory… - David Pleat & Dave Bennett

David Pleat is an former English football player turned manager and sports commentator. He is remembered by his contemporaries primarily for his career as manager of Tottenham Hotspur and Luton Town football clubs, and for an oft-televised clip of him running onto the pitch in 1983 to celebrate after a last-minute goal by Raddy Antic against Manchester City prevented Pleat’s team Luton Town from being relegated from Division One.

Dave Bennett is a former English football player. He is most famous for playing in two FA Cup Finals; 1981 for Manchester City, when he finished on the losing side, and 1987, when he produced a Man of the Match performance as Coventry City beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-2.
