Davies on progress

Posted on 11 January 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).

A year on and the message from Simon Davies is ‘could have done better’.

The young Welsh midfielder was snapped up alongside team-mate Matthew Etherington from Peterborough United for a combined £1.2m in January last year.

They went on to make a quick impact with debuts at Anfield in April before both started against Manchester United in May.

But this season has been a bit hit and miss for the pair.

Davies has been a regular on the bench but Etherington, who started against Brentford back in September, has had to settle for a diet of reserve team football for most of the season.

Welsh international Davies reflected: "The season has been indifferent for me. I’ve had a good spell and a bad spell and now I’m trying to level that off again.

"I had a bit of a nightmare against Birmingham and although I’ve been on the bench a couple of times since then, I’ve just to get myself back in the manager’s thoughts.

"We both got here and both made our debuts early but haven’t settled in the team really. After a year I’m quite pleased but perhaps I could have done better.

"All I can do is play well in the reserves and try to get noticed again."
