Jol's joy for Kelly

Posted on 6 April 2005  - 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).

Martin Jol is delighted with how Stephen Kelly took his words and turned them into his first goal for the club at Birmingham.


Full-back 'Steo' handed us the lead in the 1-1 draw at St Andrews in impressive style, overlapping down the right flank, chesting down Michael Carrick's pass and drilling past Maik Taylor.


Stephen's raids down the right have certainly caught the eye - not least his ability to recover his ground so quickly - and he has talked recently about developing the attacking side of his game.


Head Coach Martin revealed: "I was so pleased for Stephen because a couple of weeks ago he was in a similar position at Southampton and he put the chance over the bar.


"We talked about it because when you overlap like he does, so quick, lots of talent, I think perhaps you should be more effective.


"This goal showed me he's a very intelligent guy, he wants to listen and develop his game.


"The other day he said to me 'I'm a real Tottenham player' and he meant it, I know he would love to play here regularly.


"He came on a substitute for Noe Pamarot and did well. What more can you expect from him? He's a young guy and will be a big asset for Spurs in the future."
