Ben joins Jamie in reserve return

Posted on 23 April 2003  - 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).

Ben Thatcher joins Jamie Redknapp on the recovery trail in our reserve clash against Arsenal at Barnet FC tonight.

The defender limped out of the Premiership encounter at Bolton last month with a calf problem.

Midfielder Jamie returns to action after four months out with a stress fracture of the foot.

It is our final FA Premier Reserve League match of the season and an extra incentive - Gunners are chasing the title.

Boss Colin Calderwood explained: "It's our last game and Arsenal still have a chance of winning the league.

"But if they want to do that they've got to beat us and probably hope a couple of other teams slip up.

"It will be a good test for us. We will always be judged against Arsenal, whatever level we play them, but I'm optimistic.

"We've had a run of games where we've done well and it would be nice to finish the season strongly and not getting beat.

"With it being Arsenal there is that little extra anticipation around the lads as well."

Squad: Burch, Marney, Thatcher, Thelwell, Galbraith, Hughes, Redknapp, Ricketts, Acimovic, Barnard, Iversen, Foster, Rutherford, Yeates, Barnett, Wettner.
