English Barclays Premiership

Just a few days after the first team's triumphant tour of Scandinavia, our Under 19s are set to fly the Spurs flag in Germany. We travel out to Homburg, near Saarbruken, Frankfurt for the Praktiker Cup.

It is a 16-team tournament broken into four groups of four with Spurs up against Tatran Presov of Slovakia, FC Magdeburg and FC Homburg. It is a hectic schedule with the lads due to play all three group matches - in a format of two 20-minute halves - on Saturday.

They first take on Tatran Presov (2.45pm), then FC Magdeburg (4.15pm) and finally FC Homburg (5.45pm). Sunday's matches are pending on league positions from Saturday's action.
