Reserves go to Dulwich

Posted on 4 August 2000  - 12:00

English Barclays Premiership

Dave McEwen goes back to his roots on Saturday with this message: "I am proof you can still make it from non-league football."

McEwen, 22, is expected to take his place up front as Chris Hughton's second string travel to Dulwich Hamlet's Champion Hill Stadium (3pm).

We snapped up the striker from the Ryman League outfit in January and he impressed enough to win a Premiership debut as substitute against Derby County in April. He has continued his progress in the reserves in pre-season and is looking forward to meeting his old mates again.

McEwen said: "Hopefully me signing for Spurs should give other lads my age the belief that there is always the chance to make it. You have to keep performing and hope you get that break. I keep in touch with Dulwich Hamlet and it will be nice to go back down there and see the lads again. They are a great bunch.

"The coaching staff were brilliant when I was there, I learnt a lot and it will be nice to go back again."

After sitting final exams for his business studies degree this summer, McEwen is now concentrating fully on making the grade at the Lane. "All I can do is keep learning and improving and if I get another chance, make sure I take it."
