Reds finish Spurs Youth Tournament unbeaten

Posted by nickogs20 on May 19, 2008

c/o tottenhamhotspur.comFollowing Wednesday’s 2-1 win over the host team, United played two further games at the Spurs Lodge facility over the next two days. South African side Supersport United – an affiliate team of Spurs – were up first on Thursday, and United raced into an early lead via Adam Boyes (Boyes is a triallist from York City, bit more about him here). Further chances were spurned and Supersport came into the game, creating chances of their own and eventually earning a deserved draw in the final minute.

Hibernian were the opposition on Friday and proved much less challenging opponents. Federico Macheda’s two goals sandwiched Danny Drinkwater’s penalty in a comfortable 3-0 win. You can find Supersport and (very briefly) Hibs match reports on the Spurs official site, including some pictures from the games. In addition to those we determined were involved on Wednesday (Ben Amos, Danny Galbraith, Joe Dudgeon, Jimmy Derbyshire and Kenny Strickland), we can now add James Chester, Oliver Norwood, Federico Macheda, Danny Drinkwater, Matty James, Tom Cleverley and Adam Boyes to the list of those known to have been wearing red down in London this week.

Thanks to Mr MUJAC, Elliott and oskarutd on the RedCafe Reserve/Youth forum for the info.
