Match Report - Watford U17 v Tottenham Hotspur U17 - 08 Feb 2003
U17 Academy South
FA PREMIER ACADEMY LEAGUE
Watford U17s 1-0 Spurs
Academy director Peter Suddaby was impressed with a young U17 outfit that included only four full-timers and seven schoolboys in this narrow loss at Watford.
Indeed, we ended with two Under-15 players in the side as Nathan Peprah and Jack Maghoma came on in the second half.
In a game of few chances, Watford nicked the points thanks to a fine finish after finding space in the area on the hour.
"I thought we were technically better but Watford were stronger physically," reflected Peter. "We had a very young side out and hopefully they will have learned a lot."
Spurs U17s: Forecast, Lee, Jenkins (Wright, 75), Stevens (Maghoma, 75), Hodges, Dobson, Watson, O'Hara, Barcham (Peprah, 75), Brown. Unused subs: Welch, Eyre.
