Tottenham's Connor Ogilvie speaks after first goal for loan club Stevenage

White Hart Lane 5

A young Tottenham Hotspur defender has reflected on a big moment in his fledgling career.

Young Tottenham Hotspur left-back Connor Ogilvie has been speaking to the club’s official website after he scored his first senior goal while on loan at Stevenage last weekend.

The 19-year-old was brought in to the League Two club to protect his own goal rather than cause problems for the opposing one, but Ogilvie fired high into the net after just six minutes against Plymouth Argyle and set his temporary side on their way to a 2-1 victory.

Ogilvie has played 24 times for Tottenham’s under-21 side, scoring two goals and providing one assist in the process, but he wasted little time getting his name on the scoresheet for Stevenage.

The teenager has three appearances for Teddy Sheringham’s side so far and he will no doubt be hoping this is the next step in what ultimately proves to be a successful career in North London.

Speaking to tottenhamhotspur.com after his latest outing, Ogilvie said, “It feels superb getting my first goal, but obviously the win was more important for us so it was a brilliant moment overall.

“I think it was just a case of right place, right time for my goal to be fair.”

Tottenham have a considerable amount of talented young players coming through their academy right now and Ogilvie will have seen the likes of Nabil Bentaleb and Harry Kane emerge in recent times and want to taste first-team action at Spurs himself.

That is still some way off, but this loan spell will do him the world of good and in a few years he could be challenging Danny Rose and Ben Davies to be Tottenham’s left-back of choice…and a goal-scoring one at that.
