Darren steps it up

Posted on 29 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).

Darren Anderton says he wants to get back into Premiership action as soon as possible after completing his first 90 minutes for 10 weeks last night.

The midfielder impressed as our reserves beat a strong Chelsea outfit in the FA Premier Reserve League at Stevenage Borough FC.

It was his first full game since the friendly against Celtic at the Lane back in August.

"The season has gone well so far for the lads and I want to get back in as soon as I can," said Darren at Broadhall Way.

"But we'll have to wait and see what happens from here. It's up to the manager really. I'm training, playing again and we'll see what he has to say."

Darren pulled the strings in midfield alongside Steve Clemence as goals from Jonathan Blondel and Gary Doherty secured a 2-0 win against a Chelsea side including Albert Ferrer, Winston Bogarde, John Terry, Celestine Babayaro and Gabriel Ambrosetti.

"I feel good," he reported afterwards. "I feel a bit tired, but it was a good game to play in.

"It was competitive out there, Chelsea had a few players out there as well so it was ideal.

"I've been training now for a couple of weeks, haven't taken any chances with it and it feels good. I'm very pleased with how it's gone."
