Academy update

Posted on 1 March 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Our Academy under-17 side recorded a 4-1 win over Reading at Spurs Lodge on Saturday.

Coach Jimmy Neighbour fielded a young team containing nine schoolboys and two goals from Simon Dawkins and two penalties, netted by Stuart Lewis and captain Mark Wright secured a convincing victory.

The under-19s looked on course for a win against Crystal Palace when Andy Barcham gave Pat Holland's a first half lead, but two second half goals - one a penalty - secured the points for the visitors.
