Jamie's first day

Posted on 23 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 was a picture of happiness after his first day at Spurs Lodge and beamed: "It's like the first day at school."

The midfielder was snapped up on a free transfer from Liverpool last week.

After 11 years at Anfield, it was back to business for the first time in Spurs kit for the 28-year-old.

"I thoroughly enjoyed it out there," said Jamie after another batch of interviews. "It was exciting, the first day when you've been somewhere for so long and all of a sudden it all changes, it's like the first day at school."

And the session certainly opened his eyes further to the talent at the Lane.

He added: "It was a great training session and it wasn't until today when I looked around that I thought 'we've got some great young players here' so it's been good.

"At least I can get to know everyone better and get myself ready for next season, which is a good thing. I can get a bit of a head start.

"I feel good. I'm happy, excited and it's a nice feeling to have."
