Spurs in La Manga

Posted on 14 July 2003  - 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).

It's been all go at training camp in La Manga and Glenn has suffered his first defeat of pre-season - to the players!

An early start and a lengthy training session in the early morning heat at the football pitches was followed by a stint in the gym for the players.

After this came the challenge! Players v Staff at golf on the magnificent course nearby to the hotel.

Despite much collusion and attempted manipulation of handicaps by staff captain Hans Segers and his assistant and tour organiser Terry Mancini, the players won the day on the final hole leaving Glenn and his troops to reflect on the supposed 'dodgy handicaps' of Dean Marney and the big-hitting Stephen Kelly.

The staff team was Glenn, Hans, club secretary John Alexander, masseurs Tony McAllister and Paul Roberts, physio Chic Wilkinson and Terry Mancini.

Lining up for the players were Simon Davies, Matthew Etherington, Ben Thatcher, Darren Anderton, Marney, Robert Burch and Kelly.
