Valley of familiar faces for Jermain

Posted on 11 February 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).

Jermain Defoe will come up against a few familiar faces at The Valley tonight.

Indeed, our new striking sensation knows the South London club better than most - it's where he started his career before moving to West Ham.

He says it will be another special occasion after his debut and goal against Portsmouth on Saturday.

"I know Carlton Cole, Paul Konchesky and most of the guys to be honest," revealed Jermain.

"When I was there as a youngster a lot of their professionals were there, so I know them, the manager and most of the staff.

"My home debut against Portsmouth was special and I wanted to score, I did and that was great.

"Now it's Charlton, the team I used to play for so that's special as well. Hopefully we'll get another three points and then we'll be flying."
