Shreeves awaits Booth return

Posted on 14 February 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).

Sheffield Wednesday caretaker-manager Peter Shreeves is eagerly awaiting the return of Andy Booth when his one-month loan spell at White Hart Lane ends.

Former Spurs manager Shreeves, who took over at Hillsborough on Monday following the dismissal of Paul Jewell, believes Booth will have an important part to play as Division One strugglers Wednesday battle to avoid relegation for the second year running.

"He's always been a favourite of mine because of his competitive spirit," said Shreeves.

"He's done extremely well at Spurs, but I think I've made it clear to Andy that when that month is up I would want him back in the fold here to help fight the cause for survival.

"Andy's enjoyed his time at Tottenham, but I think this is his home stable. He never gave me an argument because he's a Yorkshire lad through and through."

The 27-year-old has made two starts since his loan switch, filling in while Sergei Rebrov was the only fit striker on the books. Les Ferdinand, Chris Armstrong and Steffen Iversen are all now nearing fitness.
