One of the players to make only one appearance for Tottenham, Percy Austin had a short playing career, but served Spurs well off the field for several years.

He played for Farnham United Breweries FC in the Surrey Senior League and was part of the side that reached the First Round of the FA Cup with some great giant-killing performances in 1925-26 before they lost at home to Swindon Town.

Percy was first signed on amateur forms and then, after some good displays in the reserves (nine goals in seventeen matches), he was signed as a professional at the end of that season.

Unfortunately, his only first team match was as a replacement for the injured Arthur Grimsdell, who took a knock on Boxing Day 1927, giving him to opportunity to start against Birmingham City.

He stayed for the rest of that season and was then allowed to join Norwich City in November 1928, after scoring 31 goals in 51 run-outs for Tottenham, but never made a senior appearance for the Canaries.

Percy returned to Hertfordshire and lived in Bricketts Wood, becoming the Spurs scout in the Hertfordshire area for many years.

Percy Austin died at St. Albans on 15th August 1961.
