Date: Saturday 19 August, kick off: 11:30am
Venue: Belvoir drive training complex
Head2Heads: 1-1, 2-0 Spurs, 3-1 Leicester, 1-1.
Our under 18’s play their second league game of the season on Saturday, when Scott Parker’s side travel to Leicester’s Belvoir drive training ground. Parker’s side face the foxes on the back of an impressive opening day victory (4-0) over Norwich last Saturday. Leicester also started their season with a win (2-1) away to Southampton. We beat Trevor Peake’s side 2-0 in the reserve fixture last season, and Scott Parker will be keen to replicate a similar result in tomorrow mornings tough encounter. I will be making the trip to the midlands for tomorrow mornings match, which will be my first time watching the under 18’s this season, and as always I will be providing an in depth match report. I’m hoping to see the gaffers son (Maurizio Pochettino) in action tomorrow. COYS
In other youth related news, 18 year old midfielder Jack Roles has been linked with a loan move to league 2 side Exeter City, this rumour was posted on an Exeter City fan forum. Roles is an incredibly talented midfielder who enjoyed a sensational 2016/17 campaign, it would be a fascinating loan for Roles were it to go ahead, we shall see. Exeter have a good record of developing young players at the club, for which the director of football is Spurs legend Steve Perryman.
My predicted lineup: Freeman, Lyons-Foster, Dinzeyi, Omolabi, Lock, Bowden, P.Maghoma, Patterson, A.Shashoua, Markanday, Griffiths.
My score prediction: 3-1 to Spurs.
