Ideal for Davis

Posted on 20 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).

Sean Davis said our Swedish training camp was ideal to help him settle in at Spurs.

The midfielder signed on Friday July 9 and two days later, was on a plane for a week's hard pre-season graft in Scandinavia.

Sean made his debut in our 2-2 draw against FC Copenhagen on Thursday and put in another 55-minute stint against Trollhattan on Saturday.

Perhaps just as importantly, he gelled immediately with his new team-mates.

"It was different from what I'm used to because I'd been at Fulham a long time but the boys welcomed me in and there is a good team spirit, good camaraderie and I enjoyed the week away," said the 24-year-old.

"Everything happened so quickly. One minute I was going to sign for Fulham but then the next minute the opportunity to sign for Spurs was too good to turn down.

"It was a good start for me in Sweden. I knew Jermain Defoe and Anthony Gardner through England Under-21s and had met Robbie Keane and Gary Doherty before and they were all fine.

"It's been easy to fit in because they are a great bunch of lads and all stick together. There is plenty of banter and that suits me down to the ground.

"Obviously I've also played a couple of games. We lost on Saturday but it's all about fitness at the moment and I'd rather lose all the friendlies and be ready for Liverpool. I'm looking forward to it and playing at White Hart Lane."
