Ledley on Cup quest

Posted on 11 March 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).

Ledley King explained that, as a young player at Spurs who has come through the ranks, he is more than aware of what the FA Cup means to the club and supporters.


The skipper is preparing with the rest of the squad for Sunday's quarter final trip to Newcastle and says they would very much like to create their own chapter in our Cup history.


"It means a lot to me and it means a lot to the club," said Ledley. "With the great history we have in the Cup with the success, you get caught up in it as a young player here and it is something you want to be part of.


"Of course, with it being an FA Cup quarter final at St James Park there is going to be a lot of support for them. It will be hard, but we went there earlier in the season and got a good result. We can take that there with us.


"All the players and fans want to win it. You don't get too many opportunities and you can't take anything for granted no matter what age you are.


"We have slowly progressed through and we're all feeling confident. We know Newcastle is going to be a tough game and a big game - we are really looking forward to it."


Ledley went on to say the occasion will be all the more special with his leading the team out for the big game.


"Being captain and leading the team out gives you that extra little personal boost. I am really looking forward to it, everyone is, and I can't wait for Sunday.


"We know it is a big game for us and, even though we have played it pretty low-key this week, all the players have got it in their thoughts."
