Highly rated Huddersfield student Matthew Stor has been training with Tottenham Hotspur reports the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.

The 17-year-old college student was selected from a two-day football camp at Warwick University to spend a couple of days training with Harry Redknapp’s squad at White Hart Lane.

"To be working with all the first teamers at Tottenham was just brilliant," said Stor.

"It was a real eye-opener to work at close quarters with professional players who are at the highest level.


"I had the chance to train with them and it was stunning to see how they work and what they consider to be the standards for life at that level of the game."

Stor was part of the Leeds United academy in his earlier years, and later moved to Halifax Town. But the promising defender now has his sights set on the big-time and hopes to realise his dream with Tottenham.

Spurs have had a lack of first-team players emerge from their own academy, with Ledley King the most recent high profile homegrown talent.

Tottenham fans have become used to depending on the external transfer market to bring competition for places in their squad, but this is something that Redknapp is looking to address.
