Spurs in History - 12th March

12th March, 1957
Spurs 4 Bolton Wanderers 1 1st Division

Spurs had started the season poorly, losing heavily in many of the early games. However, from late October their form had improved and inspired by Bobby Smith’s goal scoring they were making progress in the league.

This game showed Smith’s importance to the team as he completed his third hat-trick of the season, giving him seven goals in his last three League games. The other Spurs goal came from Johnny Brooks.

Spurs eventually finished 3rd in the League, something that would have seemed impossible given the early season results.
