Kevin Stead is one of few players who crossed the north London divide.

The defender joined Arsenal from Tottenham on a free transfer in July 1977 but went on to feature just twice during his spell at Highbury.

Indeed, Stead made the fewest number of appearances for the two north London clubs of those who made the switch - just 16 in total.

His only first-team start for Arsenal came in a 1-0 win over Southampton in September 1978, one week after his debut as a substitute against Wolves.

Stead struggled to make an impact during his time at the Club and left in 1979. He later featured for Oxford.
