Scott Parkers under 18 side get off to flying start against Norwich:
“I’m really happy with the lads to be fair, I thought they did really well. We’re coming off a good pre-season so it was pleasing, we worked hard and it’s always good to take on the first game and perform like that. The first half we dominated really well, the boys were very receptive of what we’re trying to do. The game faded a little tiny bit in the second half, especially the last 10 minutes when Norwich got back into it a little bit, but it’s pleasing to get a clean sheet and play as well as we did. On the scale of things, I think we probably could have seen the game right off in the first half as well.“ (Scott Parker)
New boss Scott Parker got our under 18’s off to a flying start this afternoon as they kicked off their under 18 league campaign, with an impressive 4-0 victory over Norwich at Hotspur way. The side which was made up of a mixture of first year and second year scholars, recorded a comfortable victory over the talented canaries side, Phoenix Patterson, Reo Griffiths, Jamie Bowden and Dilan Markanday getting Spurs’ goals. An impressive result from Spurs, also it was interesting to see under 16 striker Enoch Asante come on to make his under 18 debut today. Our under 18’s travel to Leicesters training ground next Saturday in a game which I will be reporting on. COYS
