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).

It was a weekend to four-get for our youth teams in the FA Premier Academy League.<P class=MsoNormal>The Under-19s lost out 4-0 against West Ham while the Under-17s were on the end of a 4-1 defeat at Coventry City.<P class=MsoNormal>At Spurs Lodge, the Under-19s actually started well against West Ham but goals either side of the break put the visitors in command. Manager Pat Holland <I>(pictured)</I> switched the system around in a bid to haul back the deficit but the impressive Hammers went on to add two more goals.<P class=MsoNormal>Pat said: &ldquo&#59;The first half was quite even, pretty scrappy, but the second half was very disappointing. We changed the system to try to get back into it but it wasn&rsquo&#59;t to be on this occasion.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal><B>Spurs U19s:</B> Attwell, Saker, Makumbu, Bowditch, Quilter, Fortune (Herron 50), Snee, Barnard, Kamanan, Jackson, Burke (Partin 70). Unused subs: Adams, Di Guiliantonio.<P class=MsoNormal>The Under-17s held their own at Coventry until two goals in as many minutes just before the interval put the home side in charge. Nicky Wetner finished a fine move to pull it back to 2-1 but City grabbed another two goals late on.<P class=MsoNormal><B>Spurs U17s:</B> Burch, Henry (Noto 65), Gardner, O&rsquo&#59;Donoghue, Wetner, Barnett, Thomas, Vedeux, Sutton,<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp&#59; </SPAN>Hughes, Lee.
