Great start for kids

Posted on 8 April 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).

Our Under-17s made a superb start to their play-off quest in the FA Premier Academy League.

A double from John Sutton and strikes from Lee Barnard and Paul O'Donoghue sealed a resounding 4-0 success against Bristol City on Saturday.

Barnard opened the scoring on 12 minutes, while Sutton registered his goal after 32 and 83 minutes. O'Donogue completed the scoring in the final minute.

Coach Jimmy Neighbour commented: "The lads played very well, they've done well in recent weeks and have only conceded one goal in si games. I'm very pleased for them."

The under-17s have two games remaining in their play-off group, Charlton at home on April 21 and a home fixture against Southampton on April 28. Finishing top of the four-team pool would see them through to the quarter-finals where the competition becomes a knock-out affair.
