Tribute to Carr

Posted on 30 April 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).

John Gorman paid tribute to Stephen Carr after the Irish star was selected for this season's PFA Premiership XI.

Stephen was voted in for the right-back slot for the team of the season by his fellow professionals.

It underlines the high regard he his held in in the game having missed the first two months of the campaign after tearing his hamstring in the opener at Everton.

He hasn't missed a minute since returning in October and received the news at the PFA awards night on Sunday.

"For any player to be picked for these teams by their fellow professionals is always a great honour," said our assistant boss John at Spurs Lodge.



"I remember when I was picked in my Carlisle days and I was very proud.

"Stephen's been picked in the elite team of the Premier League and that is some honour, especially now with players in the league from all over the world.

"It's a great honour for Steve and a great honour for Tottenham Hotspur."

Stephen's hamstring problem followed a nightmare year on the sidelines with a knee injury that forced him to miss last summer's World Cup.

"He's had a long time out and since we've been here, the last few months have been the most positive," added John. "He's worked hard and it's great to see him back."

Team-mate Simon Davies agreed with John's sentiments. "Carry's had a long-term injury and was unlucky at the start of this season with his hamstring.

"He's a great player, everyone knows that and he's done really well since he's been fit."
