Centre-half Arthur Sydney Rowe spent his entire professional career with Tottenham Hotspur, before going on to become the first manager to guide the club to the top flight title in 1951. The season before, he’d guided them to the top of the Second Division to win promotion, making Spurs the first post-war team to win back-to-back titles.
Rowe is also credited with the invention of the ‘one-two’ method of play.
After being forced to end his playing career due to cartilage problems, he then resigned as manager in 1955 due to health reasons.
He would return to the world of football in 1958 with Crystal Palace, and also spent time with Leyton Orient.
