Brown at the double

Posted on 13 January 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).

Michael Brown is targeting the Premiership after scoring twice on his debut for the reserves last night - not bad after describing himself as 'rusty' afterwards.

The midfielder - 22 goals to his name at Sheffield United last season - was straight on the scoresheet for his new club as the reserves trounced Coventry City 5-0 at Stevenage Borough.

His first came after 29 minutes, a run and precise finish from Rohan Ricketts' pass, and his second eight minutes from time, another low drive into the far corner.

"It's always nice score but my main aim is to get in that first team and score a couple of goals in the Premiership," he stated afterwards.

"It was just great to pull the shirt on, to get out there and get a game under my belt. It's been four weeks since my last game so I was a little rusty and breathing a little heavy at the end. I was happy to get through it.

"Overall it's been a chance to get to know the lads, backing your team mates up when they are in a difficult situation and that's how you get to know people, in the dressing room area."
