Our Under-18s step back into Premier Academy League action at Derby on Saturday morning.
Coach Alex Inglethorpe is looking for his squad to be competitive again after winning 19 of their 28 PAL matches last term.
That would have been good enough to win three of the four PAL divisions but unfortunately not Group B, as Leicester City stormed to the title unbeaten.
"The emphasis of the team has changed over the years and my role is now very much about developing players to go out loan," said Alex.
"Last season, every Under-19 player at the club went out on loan and played in the Football League, plus a couple of Under-18s. It's going to be the same this season.
"At the same time, we expect the lads not going out on loan to be competitive but the bigger picture as always is to make sure they are correctly developed and not pushed on too quickly.
"We have set high standards and we want to maintain them.
"The performances are just as important. Last season, the intention was always there to play and pass in the Tottenham tradition and that's something we want to push forward."
