Keep an eye on Euell

Posted on 27 August 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).

Jason Euell's Charlton career got off to a stuttering start, but it was no surprise to Chris Perry that his former team-mate soon began producing the goods at the Valley.

The former Wimbledon striker swapped Selhurst Park for the Valley last summer and didn't get off the mark until eight games into the season when he scored with a penalty against West Brom in the Worthington Cup.

It was possibly the stroke of fortune he needed because he was soon off and running in a goalscoring sense, eventually netting 14 in all competitions and 11 of Charlton's 38 Premiership goals.

"Jason did really well when he moved over," said Chris of the striker who, like himself, came up through the Wimbledon youth ranks. "There was a lot of pressure on him at the start of the season as it was quite a big fee, but he scored quite a few goals and did enough to win the fans over down there.

"It's always difficult to make a big move and, like I said, he was affected by the pressure at the beginning. Once he started getting a couple of goals they started to flow and I think he ended up with about 14."

Euell operates as a striker for Charlton but often partnered Robbie Earle in the centre of Wimbledon's midfield. Chris says the 25-year-old is much happier in a striking role.

"He always preferred playing as a striker, but he is very versatile in that he can play in midfield, which gives them more options.

"His main position was always up front as a youngster, Wimbledon thought very highly of him and Charlton have certainly got a good player."

Euell perhaps remained with the Dons longer than many pundits predicted, he was linked with many a big move before finally making the switch across south London. Chris explained that home comforts may have played a part in his choice of club.

"He's very happy in London and very settled in South London. He maybe got a couple of offers but he wanted to stay where his family is and his roots are.

"He's more comfortable with that and I think he's shown that by the way he's played for Charlton and done so well for them.

"It will be difficult for us because he's got very good movement and is a very intelligent player. He's unpredictable in that he can beat you with a lot of skill."
