Praise for Slabber

Posted on 17 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).

Glenn Hoddle was full of praise for Jamie Slabber after the young striker's first team debut against Liverpool.

The 18-year-old entered the fray in the Premiership for the first time with 12 minutes left and the Reds edging it 2-1.

Unfortunately Steve Gerrard soon made it 3-1 but Jamie claimed an assist to Teddy Sheringham's late reply as we ended up losing 3-2 at the Lane.

"It was difficult for him but I thought he did very well," reflected Glenn.

"He's had his first taste and it would have been nice to put him on where I felt we should have been - in control of the game.

"That would have been a better scenario to put him on but he did okay when he went on."
