Spurs in History - 8th June

8th June, 1957

Spurs 3 Glasgow Celtic 1 (Friendly in Vancouver)

The nine match tour of North America included four games against Celtic and Spurs had been successful in the first two matches.

Throughout the games Bobby Smith had proved a great problem to the Celtic defence, scoring five times in the first two games. This match was no different as Smith scored his second hat-trick against the Scottish team.

A crowd of 24,198 watched the game, which was the second highest attendance in Canada for a football match. The largest attendance had been during the 1952 tour when Spurs played Manchester United.
