Spurs in History - 18th June

18th June, 1952

Spurs 8 Quebec F.A. 0 (Friendly in Montreal)

Spurs long close season tour to North America finally came to an end with this victory.

They remained undefeated throughout the tour, winning all ten matches played, eight against local opposition and two exhibition games against Manchester United.

The goals were scored by Sid McClellan (3) who had replaced Len Duquemin who had been injured in an early tackle, Les Bennett (3), Ralph Wetton and Les Medley. Two days later, the party set off on the seven day return voyage on the ‘Empress of Canada.’
