Voice of experience

Posted on 12 May 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).

Ledley King admits he's starting to see himself as more of an elder statesman in the squad with so many youngsters making their mark.

Rohan Ricketts, Dean Marney, Johnnie Jackson and Stephen Kelly have all made debuts this term with the likes of Lee Barnard and Mark Yeates have been knocking on the door.

England hopeful Ledley is only 23 himself but has over 100 appearances to his name already having made his debut in 1999.

He said: "There are a lot of young players in the squad and that's great for the club.

"We all get on well and learn off the more experienced players. Having said that, I'm becoming one of the more experienced players myself! Hopefully I can give the younger lads the right advice."

With the likes of more established players like Jermain Defoe, Simon Davies, Anthony Gardner and Robbie Keane all under the age of 25, you can see the base of the squad still has its best years ahead.

"We've a young squad and I think we'll be stronger for the experiences of this season," added Ledley. "It's been tough but we'll benefit in the long run."
