Match Report - Tottenham Hotspur U17 v Fulham U17 - 13 Mar 2004
U17 Academy South
FA PREMIER ACADEMY LEAGUE
Spurs U17s 5-1 Fulham
Jimmy Neighbour was delighted with this five-star display against Fulham.
Richard Heller netted twice with further goals from Simon Dawkins, Jamie Davies and Ollie Allen, son of reserve team coach Clive.
Coach Jimmy beamed: "It was a very good win. Fulham had a very young team out but so did we.
"It started quite even but we played some great stuff for 25 minutes and capitalised with a goal after seven minutes, good play, Richard Heller got down the line and crossed and Simon Dawkins got on the end of it.
"They equalised, a bit sloppy, a cross that they headed home at the far post and we had a bit of a down period after that but kept going and Richard Heller got us back in front just before half-time.
"We came out and played some good stuff in the second half, passed the ball well and Ollie Allen, Clive's son who is on trial with us, got in the box, found space and finished well.
"Jamie Davies, an Under-15, came on for Simon Dawkins and went down the right, cut in and a terrific finish and Richard Heller finished it off, following a cross in.
"So Richard scored twice, Jamie Davies scored, Joe Martin started the game and they are all Under-15s. I was delighted with how we played.
"We've looked good since Christmas and we've now gone eight games unbeaten, so full credit to them."
