Ferguson signs in

Posted on 20 December 2000  - 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).

Spurs continue to build for the future with the signing of 18-year-old forward Steven Ferguson from East Fife for an undisclosed fee. The player was having a medical today (Wednesday).

"We are delighted to get him because he’s an excellent prospect and we faced stiff opposition but he’s been here for a couple of days on trial and that proved mutually beneficial," says Director of Football, David Pleat. "What helped us was that he said he has been a fan of Tottenham from a very young age."

Spurs scouts saw Ferguson score twice in a Scottish League Division Three game last week. Pleat added: "Obviously he's still very inexperienced, but we are confident he'll be a worthy addition to our excellent crop of youngsters, some of whom are now beginning to make a mark with the first team."

Described by the local media as a 'teen sensation', Ferguson has scored nine goals in his last eight games.
