Top marks for Yeates

Posted on 23 January 2004  - 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).

David Pleat revealed that he received good reports on youngster Mark Yeates during the course of his loan spell at Brighton.

The 19-year-old returned to the club on Monday after a two-month spell at Albion and was straight back into action with the reserves in the 2-1 win over Leicester at Stevenage.

"At Brighton they played him in midfield which was a little bit surprising for me," said David of the Republic of Ireland youth international. "In his first game at Notts County I got an absolutely glowing report and he has done well since.

"We've used him as a second striker and he has got vision, good ability at close quarters, courage and that impish spirit. He seeks out the ball and wants to play - I think he'll do well."

Meanwhile, David now hopes that Dean Marney enjoys a similarly productive loan spell at QPR after heading to Loftus Road last weekend.

"Dean has been up and down, but if he can put a consistant run together he could be one for the future."
