Friendly fire

Posted on 23 July 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 is expecting a tough test from our two pre-season friendlies this weekend.

We travel to the new KC Stadium and Hull City's centenary match on Saturday before facing Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday. Both games kick-off at 3pm.

"These will be very difficult games," said Chris. "Sheffield United have just missed out on promotion and managed to sustain their form over the last three or four years, possibly more.

"Hull got promotion in a very good style and are a side very much on the up.

"I know their coach Peter Taylor and Alton Thelwell, who was a player here, and they will raise their game for the visit of a Premiership side.

"The fact that Peter is involved with England underlines what a very good coach he is.

"He's at a forward-thinking club prepared to invest in players and the stadium and I'm sure he will be looking forward to another good season next season."
