Posted on 12 August 2001  - 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 was full of encouragement after his young reserve side's friendly draw against Dover Athletic on Saturday.<P>Yannick Kamanan claimed the second half goal to earn&nbsp&#59;the deserved 1-1 scoreline. We had earlier dominated the first half without reward and recovered from a tricky period after the home side opened the scoring on the hour.<P>Steven Ferguson was twice denied when in one-on-one situations in that impressive first&nbsp&#59;half display but the Nationwide&nbsp&#59;Conference outfit grabbed the lead against the run of play with a 30-yard effort.<P>Striker Yannick, on fire in pre-season, then&nbsp&#59;put his name to the equaliser having deflected John Jackson's shot home.<P>"The first&nbsp&#59;half performance was very encouraging,"&nbsp&#59;reflected Colin. "We went about&nbsp&#59;it very well, did what we had to do defensively and created a couple of chances.<P>"They scored against the run of play and where we'd been comfortable and in control,&nbsp&#59;they then had their best spell.<P>"When we scored it was a relief and then we were more comfortable again. Overall it was&nbsp&#59;very positive."&nbsp&#59;<P class=MsoNormal><B>Spurs Reserves:</B> Jalal, Quilter, O&rsquo&#59;Donoghue (Gardner, 89), Hillier, Consorti, Toner, Bowditch, Jackson, Snee, Ferguson, Kamanan (Vedeux, 80). <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
