Holtby in squad as U21s return to WHL
02 September 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Lewis Holtby is back in action as our Under-21s face Norwich City in the Barclays U21 Premier League at White Hart Lane tonight.
The midfielder turned on the style as the team turned around a 2-0 deficit to beat West Ham 3-2 at Upton Park last time out on August 23.
Lewis scored a belter from 30 yards that night and followed with another sweet strike for his first goal in first team colours against Dinamo Tbilisi on Thursday.
The lads have picked up where they left off last season – so far it’s three wins out of three, with 13 goals scored in a total of 20!
Chris Ramsey, our Senior Professional Phase Coach, is looking forward to playing on the main stage again – and expects a test against a club whose youth team won the FA Youth Cup last season.
“It will be great for the lads to play in front of the fans who supported us so well last season,” he said.
“Norwich had a very successful youth campaign last season and won the FA Youth Cup against Chelsea. That shows they could be provide a tough test tonight.
“For us, it’s all about the level of performance, to make sure we’ve learned from the first half last week and try to take it forward again.”
Squad: Miles, Vigouroux, A McQueen, Lancaster, D McQueen, Ball, Gallifuoco, Ward, Stewart, Dombaxe, Holtby, Veljkovic, Bentaleb, Lameiras, Coulthirst, Dawkins.
