NextGen Series Update

The reboot of the NextGen Series is ongoing in Amsterdam this weekend, with Spurs sending a squad which included an Ipswich Town player!

As Those Were The Days explain, it is not yet clear whether Kundai Benyu is on a trial, or whether Ipswich have just let us borrow him to make up the numbers.

Today we won our opening match against PSV Eindhoven, with a goal from Joe Pritchard deciding the tie.

You can watch the match here (it’s only two 25 minute halves), or you can read the report here.

The team was as follows:

Whiteman (17)
Walker-Peters (19) Maghoma (18) Walkes (19) Muscatt (18)
Lesniak (20) Benyu (18)
J Pritchard (19) Miller (19) Goddard (19)
Harrison (18)

Sterling (17) for Pritchard, 46.
Duncan (17) for Goddard, 46.
Stylianides (18) for Miller, 50.

Tomorrow we play twice – at 11:00 (10:00 UK time) vs Ajax Cape Town, and at 16:00 (15:00 UK time) vs Right to Dream, from Ghana.

Meanwhile, our Under-16s are participating in the Geneva Cup in Switzerland. Today we drew 0-0 with Atlético Madrid, lost 2-1 to Swiss side Servette and won 5-1 against Meyrin FC (another Swiss side).

  3. hi windy, is tom mcdermott any relation to our own john mcdermott?
  4. Any new recruits will not be able to blend into the team before the start of the 2017-18 season as there are the Euro 2016 and Olympics plus 46 games+(38 PL, 6 ECL group at least, and supposing we go out at the first games of the CO Cup/FA Cup), which all deny us time allowing the new players to fully understand the team. The team we have now was splendid before the WBA game. The abrupt “cannot be explained”(from Poch’s words) decline in the last 4 games of these players could only be redeemed by these same players by winning the PL next season, so that we Spurs fans and supporters could really forgive them.
  5. […] progression to the final of the NextGen Series last week was a good sign — as was Marcus Edwards (arguably the best 17-year old in the […]
