This evening Spurs announced via Twitter the players who have have been awarded scholarships at Spurs and who will be part of our under 18’s side for the coming season. The first year scholars for next seasons campaign are as follows: Charlie Freeman, Timothy Eyoma, Jonathan Dinzeyi, Reo Griffiths, Tariq Hinds, Matthew Lock, Tashan Oakley-Boothe, Moroyin Omolabi and Jamie Reynolds. This years pool of players are an extremely talented group of players who have exciting careers ahead of them, Oakley-Boothe who has been capped at England under 16 level, is an exceptionally talented prospect, a versatile midfielder Oakley-Boothe reminds me of Dembele with his style of play. The skilful midfielder already made a couple of appearances at under 18 level last season, scoring one goal. Another highly rated player is Reo Griffiths, the striker excelled for our under 16’s last season as he netted over 30 goals, Griffiths is a hot prospect who I am looking forward to seeing for our under 18’s over the coming season. Young goalkeeper Charlie Freeman is yet another top talent within our academy, Freeman recently had a successful youth loan for Newcastle United at the super cup, Freeman is noted for being a very good shot stopper.
Jonathan Dinzeyi and Timothy Eyoma are also exceptionally talented centre halfs who both played for the under 18’s during last years campaign. I don’t know a great deal about the other talented young players and their styles of play. However, you can find out about them in the link provided below which provides profiles of all our first year scholars. Our under 18’s start their league campaign at home to Southampton this Saturday. COYS⚽️
