spurs (((on!))) goalflash 2

Posted on 29 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).

Matthew Etherington will miss his return to Peterborough United on Tuesday night. Our 18-year-old winger damaged his ankle playing for the reserves at Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday and has been ordered to rest.

It's a huge blow for Etherington who, alongside Simon Davies, was looking forward to going back to the club where he made his name. Etherington made his debut as a 15-year-old under Barry Fry at Posh before he and Davies were snapped up for L1.2m in January.

A disappointed Etherington revealed: "Unfortunately it looks as if I'm going to miss the friendly at London Road on Tuesday. It's a little bit of a setback for me but hopefully I'll be alright in a few days.

"I got kicked on Saturday playing for the reserves against Dulwich Hamlet and my ankle has swollen badly, so it's a matter of getting the bruising and the swelling away and hopefully it will then be alright.

"It's a real blow. I was looking forward to going back to Peterborough, I had a some happy years there, so it's a bit if a disappointment, but I've got to look out for the start of the season.

"I will probably still go up there and watch the game. It will be a bit of a disappointment for me to have to watch but that's how it goes."
