Spurs in History - 15th June

15th June, 1952

Manchester United 1 Spurs 7 (Friendly in New York)

Nearing the end of their North American tour Spurs played United twice in twenty four hours. The previous day, in Toronto, Spurs had won 5-0 and as League Champions United were looking for revenge in this game.

They took an early lead but Spurs equalised within a minute through Les Bennett and scored another three in the next eighteen minutes for a 4-1 lead at half-time. A further three goals in ten minutes midway through the second half made Spurs very comfortable winners.

The goals were scored by Len Duquemin (4), Les Bennett (2) and Sid McClellan.
