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).

Stevie Ferguson has tasted life in football&rsquo&#59;s fast lane over the festive period.<P class=MsoNormal>One minute he was scoring his ninth goal in eight games to help East Fife overcome Albion in the Scottish FA Cup in front of 398 fans at Bayview Stadium, the next he was being whisked away to Tottenham, signing for us and watching us beat Newcastle 4-2 in front of 35,000 fans at the Lane.<P class=MsoNormal>Not surprisingly the 18-year-old has struggled to take it all in. &ldquo&#59;I can&rsquo&#59;t believe how massive the place is,&rdquo&#59; said Ferguson during the half-time break in that memorable match against Newcastle.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I just can&rsquo&#59;t wait to get started now. It&rsquo&#59;s a big leap from East Fife to Tottenham but I&rsquo&#59;m determined to enjoy it.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s all happened very quickly. East Fife have been really good to me but I&rsquo&#59;m here now and it&rsquo&#59;s a dream. It certainly hasn&rsquo&#59;t sunk in yet though.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>After appearing as substitute in six of his first eight games for East Fife Ferguson grabbed his first goal of the season against Montrose on October 28 and exploded into life.<P class=MsoNormal>He went on to score nine goals in his next eight games before we came knocking.<P class=MsoNormal>He reflected: &ldquo&#59;It was a brilliant start to the season for me with nine goals in eight games. It was my first season at Division Three level in Scotland and look where I am now, Tottenham. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I can&rsquo&#59;t wait to get started. I would love to get involved but I&rsquo&#59;m still a way away. I&rsquo&#59;m still young and I&rsquo&#59;ve plenty of time to develop and hopefully one day I can make the breakthrough.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;ve seen the young players come through here and that&rsquo&#59;s what you want to see &mdash&#59; the young players getting a chance.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I still can&rsquo&#59;t believe I&rsquo&#59;ve been given the chance to come here and I&rsquo&#59;m going to give it my best shot.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
