Perry back in action

Posted on 5 March 2001  - 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).

Chris Perry is set to return to action for our reserves on Tuesday night.

The defender will make his comeback from a nasty calf injury in the FA Premier Reserve League fixture against Charlton at St Albans (7.30pm).

Reserve team boss Chris Hughton revealed: "Chris Perry is down to play and that will be a massive bonus for us. Hopefully he'll then be available for West Ham on Sunday."

Perry was ordered to rest for a fortnight after the calf problem that required internal and external stitches following a 50-50 challenge at Manchester City on February 10.

He recalled: "I went for a 50-50 tackle, got the ball and one of their players caught me. I had quite a deep gash just below my calf muscle that went into the muscle.

"I played until half-time, about 15 minutes, and didn't realise what had happened until half-time when I took down my sock and saw there was quite a lot of blood and a big hole in my leg.

"It was that deep that they had to stitch the muscle back together and then close the skin over the top. I had about 10 stitches in total."
