So far so good for Fergie

Posted on 25 June 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).

Steven Ferguson is delighted to report that things have gone much better than he planned in his six-month spell at the club so far.

The 19-year-old has already featured in a number of Premiership squads with the highlight a place on the bench at both Arsenal and Liverpool.

The Scottish striker has also impressed in reserve games with his hunger and natural eye for goal — two of the qualities that persuaded us to bring him down from Scottish Division Three outfit East Fife in December.

"It’s gone much better than planned," insisted Fergie. "Obviously when I moved down I hardly played for two months but now I’m getting my games in, I’m more comfortable on the ball and my team-mates are willing to pass to me because they know I can do things.

"For what targets I set myself when I first arrived, I’ve doubled.

"There has been a lot of injuries here. That was a great chance for me but it’s not good news for the club. For me personally I’m thriving on it."

Sitting on the bench against Liverpool and warming up in front of the Kop was a personal highlight for Fergie, but he is hungry to actually get on the pitch for a first team encounter.

"It was a great experience to be involved somewhere like Anfield, the fans were so passionate and warming up alongside the likes of Robbie Fowler and Danny Murphy was a great experience.

"Hopefully I might get a chance, just get on the park for two minutes, I’m not bothered, even a minute, just enough time to score a winning goal, that would be great!"
