Scot Bill Joyce had
a brief Tottenham career as a forward wedged between
spells with Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United..
Bill's football career began at Greenock Morton and moved South to England in 1894, joining Bolton Wanderers. Joyce broke a leg playing for the Trotters in 1896, but had done well enough to have Tottenham come in for him.
His forward play was just what Spurs needed at the time, scoring 26 goals in 38 games, but the one season was all he had in a Lilywhite shirt before travelling east to sign for the team who would become West Ham United a year later - Thames Ironworks.
Scored well in the team,
but only stayed one season before going on to play for
Portsmouth (taking the place of Spurs bound Sandy Brown)
and Burton United, where he spent two seasons.
