Calderwood's challenge

Posted on 9 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).

Colin Calderwood believes the return of senior players to his reserve side against Fulham at Woking FC tonight will have a positive effect on the youngsters who miss out.

Having fielded young sides in the last three matches against Charlton, Ipswich and Watford - at least six Under-19 players have started each game - boss Colin will put out a more experienced line-up against Fulham including Neil Sullivan, Kazuyuki Toda, Anthony Gardner, Milenko Acimovic, Matthew Etherington and the returning Steffen Iversen.

Colin explained: "This is a more experienced side because senior players need games so a few of the youngsters who have played in recent weeks will miss out this time.

"Obviously that's disappointing for them, but in a way it works positively because they they know they have to fight for their places.

"This is what the reserve team is all about. The younger boys have done well in the last few games but this will keep them keen on the training ground. They know they are not guaranteed a place in the team and they have to show the desire to get in and stay in."
