Clem back on the ball

Posted on 11 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).

Stephen Clemence has set his sights on a return to reserve team action on Tuesday.

The midfielder has taken huge strides in his recovery from an Achilles problem and has trained fully with the squad for the last week.

With the exception of a couple of games at the end of last season, 'Clem' has been laid low for over a year now.

He needed an operation after damaging his knee at Blackburn last August and then suffered groin problems before returning in April.

His pre-season was interrupted by an Achilles problem but things finally look to be on an upward curve again.

"I feel really good," beamed Clem after training on Thursday. "I've done four or five days training now and feel quite sharp as well.

"I've a bit of fitness to go but hopefully I'll play a part in both the games this week against West Ham and DC United, another game the week after and then hopefully I won't be too far away.

"I still need reserve games but the Achilles feels great. I'm training fully now. I've joined in with eight-a-sides, charging around and I feel good.

"I said a couple of weeks ago that I hadn't set any targets and that you just miss being out there with the boys, training and once I started to do that, which I am now, I'd start to set targets."
