The U13 Reds visited Tottenham Hotspurs Training Facilities to play a series of games against U13 Spurs Shadow & Academy sides.
Previously Graham Hartley’s U8s had visited Spurs for a fun packed football festival. It was the turn of the U13 Reds to have a memorable night of hospitality and football in their state of the art training facilities.
The Reds currently sitting on top of Division 1 played a mixture of Academy & Shadow squad players. They proved no match as the pace of the game and decision making showed why Spurs are a strong academy. However, it was never about the results and the Reds showed some brilliant passages of play to net a few goals on the night. Goal Keeper Ben Phillips had his work cut out and showed his true class form to pull off a series of magnificent saves to earn himself a place training with Spurs Shadow Squad.
It was a fantastic evening, all of the staff at Spurs were welcoming and made the Reds feel like a professional team. The Reds have been invited back in for future games in the New Year.
