Spurs in History - 23rd June

23rd June, 1909

A quiet day for Tottenham Hotspur in their 125 year history.

The only recorded event for this date is a story from the South American tour.

As Spurs were without a game, they went to watch two local teams. A large crowd attended and when there was a small pitch invasion the response was unexpected.

The Argentine cavalry came onto the pitch and started to drive the invaders off using the flats of their swords. Order was restored very quickly and the match continued without further incident.
