Simon grabs his chance

Posted on 7 May 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).

Simon Davies continues to grasp his chance to show Glenn Hoddle that he is worthy of a part in his brave new dawn at the Lane.

The young midfielder added to his growing reputation with a superbly taken goal in the 4-2 defeat at Leicester City on Saturday.

Now a full Welsh international, Simon has certainly caught the eye of late in an extended run in the side and has been able to illustrate his appetite for hard graft, his footballing skills and, in-particularly, his eye for goal.

He knows this is invaluable time at the Premiership crease with his new boss Glenn Hoddle likely to bring in new players this summer.

Simon, still just 21, said: “I’m getting the chance to impress the manager at the moment and the more you play the more confidence you have.

“In a way I wish the season would go on for a few more games. It has been hard but it’s been great to play. The Premiership is much more physically demanding and takes a lot more out of you.

“Of course, I’m expecting the manager to bring in his own players this summer. I'm prepared for that.

“It’s a massive club and you can’t just expect all the young lads to continue to play. If you then get involved regularly in that team, with all the new signings, then you will know you are doing well.”

Simon is enjoying working under Glenn so far and revealed: “There is a lot of emphasis on keeping the ball, passing and moving and the lads are more relaxed with that and it’s showing. It’s enjoyable to play in as well.”
