Jack's the lad for U17s

Posted on 30 April 2003  - 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).



Liverpool U17s 1-1 Spurs

Schoolboy Jack Maghoma made sure our Under-17s finished their competitive season in style with a deserved draw at Liverpool.

Maghoma, an Under-15 player at the club, grabbed the equaliser in the second half as both sides experimented with young teams in this final play-off encounter.

Coach Jimmy Neighbour takes up the story. "The lads did well. We took a very young team, a lot of Under-16s and some Under-15s and we matched them.

"They had a very young team as well but neither us or them could progress further in the play-offs so it was an ideal opportunity to have a look at the boys for next season.

"It was a very even game, a nice end of season game for everyone to show us what they could do.

"They scored in the first half with a clever chip but we had one or two decent chances after that that we didn't put away.

"Second half we came out and we were the better team by far. A lot of the game was played in their half, we hit the post twice and we eventually scored a good goal from a young Under-15 lad who came on as sub, Jack Maghoma.

"So I was quite pleased with the performance and it was a very good exercise for us."

Spurs U17s: Forecast, Watson, Wright, McKenna (Seanle, 70), Welch (Maghoma, 70), Ifil, Lee, O'Hara, Barcham, Price, Daniels. Unused subs: Hicks, Eyre, Jenkins.
