On This Day In Spurs History: 28th May
1952 – Another end of season tour, but on this day in 1952, the result was anything but normal. Spurs were on a ten-match tour of North America, when they faced a Saskatchewan F.A. XI. By half-time Spurs were winning 14-0.
To make things a little easier for our hosts in the second half, we then swapped goalkeepers, with Ted Ditchburn between the sticks for the Canadians. The final result was an 18-1 win for Tottenham, with goals from Sid McClellan (9), Les Bennett (3), Len Duquemin (2), Dennis Uphill (2) and Chris Adams (2)
