Clemence time

Posted on 7 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).

Chris Hughton speaks for everyone at Spurs when he says he's looking forward to seeing Stephen Clemence again tonight - hopefully after we've taken three points off Birmingham City!

First team coach Chris saw 'Clem' develop through the junior ranks at Spurs and make over 100 appearances before moving to the Midlands this time last year.

We now come face-to-face with the midfielder at the Lane in tonight's Premiership clash.

"It's always good to see Clem," said Chris. "He was a model professional here.

"He was always one who wanted to train, never missed training and would always want to play for the reserves if he wasn't involved in the first team.

"He was a very popular figure amongst the staff and players.

"At the end of the day, Stephen would have wanted to leave here because he wanted regular first team football.

"Sometimes lads leave here and only to find themselves in more or less in the same position and no-one would take it away from Stephen, we're all delighted he's doing well for himself.

"We just hope he doesn't play that well come Wednesday night!"
