Alnwick delighted with Tottenham debut

He told Tottenham’s website: “It’s always hard going to a new club, meeting new people and getting to know everyone on the pitch and I did have a few nerves beforehand.

“I kept a clean sheet, made a couple of saves, fielded a few crosses and kicked well, so I was happy with that.

“I was pleased with the second save (from Jarvis) because he came straight down the middle and I guessed the right way and made the save. They were good up front with two crafty players but our centre-halves did superbly.

“I haven’t played since Preston away for Sunderland in October so to step straight back into it here, keep a clean sheet and the way it all went was very pleasing.”
