Head start for Eddie

Posted on 2 November 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).

Eddie Silva Sousa was quick to praise his team-mates after his quickfire double helped sink Chelsea in last night's big reserve clash.

The Portuguese striker is beginning to find his feet at reserve level and has struck up a free-scoring partnership with Lee Barnard.


Eddie's two headers in the 3-0 win against the Blues at Stevenage Borough made it four goals in his last five games while Lee has bagged eight in his last seven.

Indeed, the team has scored 14 goals in winning four of their last five games in the FA Premier Resereve League South.

Monday night's goals were a treat with Eddie on the end of superb crosses from Phil Ifil and Mark Yeates before Irish imp Mark provided the ammunition for a third headed goal for Johnnie Jackson.

"It was very good for the team and a good night for me," beamed Eddie in his improving English at Stevenage. "I have to thank my team-mates for the crosses for my goals. They made it easy for me and I was there on the end of them.

"Now I understand more about how Lee plays and that helps to play with him.

"A month ago it was more difficult but I have looked how Lee plays and now we play well together. It just takes time and with more time it will get better."
