Weekend squads

Posted on 29 July 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).

Martin Jol will field strong squads at both Reading and Aldershot this weekend.


We've turned into the home straight in terms of our pre-season preparations and have these friendlies and FC Porto on August 6 at the Lane before the big kick-off at Portsmouth on August 13.


Head Coach Martin said: "We did well in South Korea and used a lot of players but some didn't get 90 minutes, so that's why we'll play with two teams against Reading and Aldershot.


"These will be teams from the first team squad because they need 90 minutes.


"We only have two weeks to go now and the players need games. South Korea was terrific for us but it was very hot and that's why we didn't play the lads for 90 minutes and used substitutes.


"Michael Dawson will play this weekend but Paul Stalteri won't, he starts training again on Monday and we won't take any risks with him."


Squads: For Reading, Saturday: Cerny, Burch, Gardner, Kelly, King, Ziegler, Routledge, Reid, Tainio, Mendes, Defoe, Mido, Bunjevcevic, Marney, Jackson, El Hamdaoui.


For Aldershot, Sunday: Fulop, Burch, Marney, Dawson, Huddlestone, Lennon, Jackson, Bunjevcevic, Davenport, Carrick, Keane, Kanoute, El Hamdaoui, Barnard, Yeates, Hallfredsson.
