*Under new management

Posted on 10 September 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).

It's not just the men who have had a change at the top, as Spurs Ladies have restructured after some summer departures, leaving their set-up similar to the men's club.

Former captain Jackie Fearon has taken over as First Team manager with Mark Brooksbank coming in from the Army to oversee the coaching at all levels at the club, but with particular responsibility for training the seniors.

Jackie has served the club for ten years and has taken on the role as manager to produce some continuity while Mark, possessor of the UEFA B coaching licence, has brought a new approach to the way the ladies are trained.

With a number of players coming and going, there is a new look side and there will be a younger look to the side, again just like the men's first team.

Manager Fearon said: "It will be a great opportunity for the talented youngsters to show the progress they have made through the club's development programme."

"This season will be about stability and once that has been achieved, the team will start playing the Tottenham way," coach Mark added.

And they kicked-off with a win in the WFA Cup against Banbury United on Sunday.

Fielding one of the youngest sides ever, with eight players who have come through the youth system, they made a hatful of chances, but a combination of good goalkeeping, the woodwork and some off target finishing conspired to restrict them to Rosi Webb's 21st minute strike that takes them through to an away match with Hastings United in the next round.
