Tottenham Hotspur Development Squad
Here’s all you need to know about the Spurs Development Squad
One key ingredient to Mauricio Pochettino’s recipe for success with Tottenham Hotspur has undoubtedly been 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 has emerged as a first team member, making his first Premier League start against Wolves in December 2018. Pochettino also handed first team debuts to under 23 squad members George Marsh and Timothy Eyoma in the FA Cup 3rd Round victory over Tranmere.
Alfie Whiteman and Kazaiah Sterling have also been involved in the first team squad this season. Sterling made his Spurs debut in December 2017 against APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League, coming on as a substitute in place of Dele Alli, another young player who Pochettino has nurtured into one of the finest in the Premier League.
Kyle Walker-Peters is another example of a Spurs player that has come through the youth system and ended up in the first team. The full back picked up three assists against Bournemouth on Boxing Day 2018 and started against Barcelona at Camp Nou in Spurs’ final Champions League group stage match of 2018.
