+Trio catch Pat's eye again

Posted on 8 March 2005  - 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).

The performances of schoolboys once again stood out for coach Pat Holland after the 2-2 draw against Coventry City in the FA Premier Academy League.

Coach Pat has been running the rule over a few of the club's Under-16 players as he tries to juggle competing in the rest of the league season with going full out for success in the FA Youth Cup.

It has worked a treat with the lads progressing to the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup - they travel to Watford on March 18 - and only suffering three defeats in 14 league games since October. However, they have drawn nine of those 14 games, including seven of the last nine outings!

Pat said: "It's the time of year where you can start grooming the younger kids and from what I've seen of the schoolboys so far I've been really pleased with them.

"Matthew Wells has done well. He plays a very simple game, he's a very unassuming boy and he's come in, keeps his game nice and basic and he's done okay.

"Young Jamie Davis is improving every game on the right wing and young Radwan Hamed always looks a threat when he comes on. The three of them did well and it all fares well for the Youth Cup."
