Sully makes way for youth

Posted on 9 September 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).

Neil Sullivan would be more than happy if his departure for Chelsea presents an opportunity for young keeper Robert Burch to gain further experience.

The Scottish international headed to Saturday's opponents just over a week ago after three seasons at White Hart Lane and sees only good things ahead for Robert, who is currently away with England on under-21 international duty.

"Burchy has come on a hell of a lot even this season," said Sully. "You could tell towards the end of last season that he was progressing nicely, getting a good size about him, his confidence was coming, his techniques were good.

"I think he has got a real good chance, I honestly do. He's a good trainer who is willing to listen and learn - good luck to him.

"If me moving on presents him with a chance, I'm sure he'll do well. He's got a good chance of making it."

Sully worked in tandem with Robert on the pre-season trip to La Manga and feels that he has benefited from the added involvement that saw him play in a number of the build-up games.

"On coming back from La Manga you can tell he's come on. He wants to learn and is young enough to work hard and I'm sure he'll be fine."
