Something special

Posted on 7 April 2005  - 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).

Martin Jol has described our Under-18s as a 'special team' as they prepare for the semi-final, first leg of the FA Youth Cup at Ipswich Town on Friday night.

Head Coach Martin has watched the run to the last four and victories against Forest, Liverpool, Everton and Watford.

A two-legged encounter now follows for a place in the final with the lads travelling to Portman Road first before the return at the Lane on Wednesday.

"There is a special atmosphere for the games in the FA Youth Cup," said Martin.

"Watford was a good team and they played them off the park. They looked so good that night and we are confident they can achieve something this season.

"It's a big thing and it's our club. Phil Ifil's playing, Jamie O'Hara's playing and there are a couple of players coming through the ranks that will play for the reserves next season.

"When you see the young players so happy after winning a game you realise how important it is for them."
