Alton ready for next step

Posted on 28 October 2002  - 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).

Alton Thelwell is targeting 90 minutes for the reserves against Chelsea at Stevenage tonight.

The 22-year-old, out since April with a troublesome groin injury, played for an hour in a practice match at Fulham on last Tuesday and reports that all went well for him.

"Not too bad," he said at Spurs Lodge on Thursday. "I played 60 minutes, which I was happy with as I was only meant to play a half. To play 60 was good and it was nice to be out there.

"It felt pretty good. I was a bit sore afterwards, but you're going to get that when you first come back.

"The groin was a little bit sore, but I trained the next day and, fingers crossed, everything is alright.

"We've got Chelsea next and it would be nice to play 90 minutes if I can. I want to push on with my fitness now."
