Snee-sy does it

English Barclays Premiership

George Snee hit the goal trail again to earn a point for our Under-19s in the FA Premier Academy League at the weekend.

Snee netted twice as we came from behind twice in the 2-2 draw against Charlton on Saturday.

Charlton went ahead via a 25-yarder after 25 minutes but we hit back five minutes later when Snee added the finishing touches after fine work from Yannick Kamanan.

The Addicks went 2-1 up at the start of the second half but Snee latched onto a ball over the top and committed the goalkeeper before tucking away his second to grab a point with 15 minutes left.

Manager Pat Holland was not over-impressed with his side's performance though. He said: "I thought we were a little disappointing especially with how we played against Arsenal in our last match."

The Under-17s also took a point in a 3-3 cracker against Southampton to maintain their unbeaten start in the FA Premier Academy League.

Jimmy Lee put Spurs 1-0 up after only five minutes but a deflected goal handed Southampton an equaliser just before the break.

Saints then led twice but we managed to hit back on both occasions. Firstly Paul O'Donaghue reacted quickest to a loose ball from a corner to make it 2-2, Southampton made it 3-2 straight away only for Lee Barnard to latch onto Lee Barnett's through ball to finish a one-on-one opportunity for 3-3.

Boss Jimmy Neighbour said: "It was a very good game of football and a good team performance. We were awful in our last game against Bristol City but this was a lot better."

Spurs U19s v Charlton: Attwell, Saker, Lacy, Bowditch, Quilter, Fortune (Kelly 75), Partin (Consorti 70) Snee, Kamanan, Jackson, Johnsson (Burke 80).

Spurs U17s v Southampton: Burch, Gardiner, McKie, Thomas, Henry, O'Donaghue, Lee, Hughes (Barnett 34), Sutton, Barnard, Gailbraith.
