Tom on song

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).

Tom Huddlestone was named fourth best individual player after his performances for England Under-20s in the Toulon Tournament.


At 18, Tom - recruited last season from Derby County and arriving here in pre-season - was one of the youngest members of Peter Taylor's squad.


That didn't stop the versatile defender/midfielder receiving one of the individual honours, decided by man-of-the-match nominations from coaches, journalists, scouts and the organising committee throughout the competition.


Coach Taylor said: "He's shown a very good attitude and has played very well here.


"The Premiership will be a big test but he's a good footballer and I'm hopeful he'll be a success there."


England finished third overall in the prestigious tournament after beating Mexico on penalties in the third/fourth play-off.


They beat Tunisia 2-0, lost 1-0 to Portugal and beat South Korea 3-0 before losing on penaltes to France in the semi-finals after a goalless draw.
