A star at Tottenham at a young age, Jimmy Dimmock went on to be a major player in the club's history - most notably for his winning goal in the 1921 FA Cup final.
The 20 year old who struck the goal on a rain-sodden pitch at Stamford Bridge against Wolverhampton Wanderers to secure the trophy for the club for the second time, was already writing his own headlines and this went on for some time. His jinking runs on the wing and moments of inspiration made Jimmy Dimmock a player who was to epitomise the club's way of playing.
Jimmy was a local boy from a big family (he had five brothers) and during his time at Tottenham, he lived in Central Avenue, Edmonton from the 1930s to the 1950s, when he moved to Deephams Close and attended the nearby Montagu Road School. He had a big family himself, with five children by the time he was 33, thus he still has many relatives who still live in the area.
When he first played in the first team, he struck up a partnership with Bert Bliss and showed great ball control, innate positional sense and powerful shots from both feet.
