Tottenham Hotspur Development Squad

Here’s all you need to know about the Spurs Development Squad

One key ingredient to Nuno Espírito Santo’s recipe for success with Tottenham Hotspur will undoubtedly be his focus on the development of youth players. Harry Kane and Harry Winks are the shining examples of those that have come through the younger ranks at Spurs to get into the first team.

In the 2018/19 season, central midfielder Oliver Skipp emerged as a first-team member, making his first Premier League start against Wolves in December 2018. Skipp developed into a promising football player during his time in the Development Squad. He progressed from Tottenham Youth in 2016 to the Spurs Under18’s squad, then advancing into Tottenham’s Under 23 team in 2017 before making his first-team debut in 2018.

Harvey White and Brandon Austin are also members of the Tottenham Under 23s team, both of whom have made appearances for the Spurs first team. In November 2020, White made his Spurs first-team debut in the European League game against Bulgaria’s Ludogorets. The young midfielder substituted for Dele Alli and helped take Spurs to a 4-0 victory. Brandon Austin has yet to make his first off bench appearance for the Spurs first team but has been travelling with the Tottenham Hotspur as a substitute in recent games.

Nuno Espírito Santo has also invested in many members of the Tottenham Youth team. Malachi Fagan-Walcott and Nile John are two examples of Spurs players who have come through the youth system and are Tottenham stars on the rising.
