Jamie looks ahead

Posted on 30 April 2002  - 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).

Jamie Redknapp loved every minute of his competitive debut for Spurs - he's already counting the days to next season.

The midfielder played 80 minutes of our goalless draw in the FA Premier Reserve League encounter against title-chasing Ipswich Town.

Out of competitive action for over a month, Jamie's passing range and fitness looked intact and he came closest to scoring for us when his volley flew inches wide.

Jamie, who played a behind-closed-doors friendly at Spurs Lodge last week, beamed: "I thoroughly enjoyed it.

"I'm still catching up with my fitness but I haven't played for a while. It's coming on. I fancied staying on for the 90 minutes, to be honest!

"It's just about getting my fitness back and sharpness, which will take a little time, but it was just great to get the kit on because although it's not a first team game, it's still nice to get to know the players and get to know everyone.

"I think I last played about a month ago. With everything that went on with the transfer you're not training properly and you lose that sharpness.

"I had two weeks of not really doing anything and you need that sharpness of day to day stuff and that will come with the more I train and more I play.

"I can't wait for next season now. I'll keep ticking over in the summer, we've got the La Manga trip half-way through, which is perfect for me and hopefully I'll come back and be as sharp as I can for next season."

Gary Doherty played another 90 minutes alongside Matt Etherington, Oyvind Leonhardsen and John Jackson in the encounter at Stevenage Borough.
