Talented England youth international goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman continues to make progress in our Academy system.
A local lad who was born and bred in Tottenham, lives just down the road from the site of White Hart Lane and has been a fan all his life, he started four of our six games in the Under-19 UEFA Youth League in 2016-17, played nine league games for the Under-18s, made one start in the FA Youth Cup and appeared twice for the Under-23s in the Premier League 2.
In addition, he was named on the first team bench for our EFL Cup third round win over Gillingham in September, 2016, and travelled with the senior squad on matchdays on a handful of occasions, as well as on our 2017 pre-season tour of the USA. He appeared on the bench in the Premier League for the first time in November, 2017, during a 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace.
Alfie attended Park View School and joined our Academy full-time in the summer of 2015. He previously made his debut for our Under-18s in 2014-15 when he stepped off the bench in a 3-0 win at Brighton in January, 2015.
In his first full season with our Under-18s, 2015-16, he started 12 league games and played in both of our FA Youth Cup matches. He also stepped up for his Under-21s debut in September, 2015, in a memorable 7-4 home win over Leicester.
He has won international caps for England at all levels between Under-16 and Under-19 and was the Young Lions' starting goalkeeper at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in 2015.
