Never too old to learn

Posted on 20 March 2003  - 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).

Teddy Sheringham will share the knowledge and experience of almost 20 years in football with new kid on the block Jamie Slabber - but hopes it works both ways.

Young striker Jamie, just 18, had his first taste of the Premiership in Sunday's 3-2 defeat against Liverpoool where he claimed an assist for Teddy's late second goal.

Skipper Teddy, meanwhile, has done just about the lot. He's won championships, the FA Cup, European Cup, played for England in the World Cup and European Championships and been named PFA Player of the Year in a glorious career that started at Millwall back in 1984.

But, as he admits, he's not too old to learn at 36.

"I've tried to help him the same as I do anyone else really," explained Teddy at Spurs Lodge.

"If he enjoys playing and learning off me then I've always said, hopefully he will but I'll still learn of him if he does something. I'm not too old to learn and that's the beauty of football."

Teddy has been impressed at what he's seen of the youngster.

He added: "I think he's a great prospect, definitely one for the future and it might just be the near future."
