Tottenham Hotspur's Connor Ogilvie enjoying linking up with Teddy Sheringham

Tottenham Hotspur youngster is currently taking in a loan spell at Stevenage, where he has made four appearances.

Connor Ogilvie has told Tottenham Hotspur's official website that he is enjoying being able learn off Teddy Sheringham, after joining Stevenage on loan. 

The young defender has joined the League Two outfit on a temporary basis until the new year, and says that he is taking plenty for his time spent working with a Spurs legend. 

Ogilvie has played in Stevenage's last four matches, and says that he is enjoying his first taste of regular competitive action. 

“I’m loving it – the boys have been very welcoming and I feel like I’ve integrated into the squad very well,” he enthused. “There’s a few boys who have been at Spurs who are at the club now, so the Tottenham connection definitely helps.

“Teddy is a top coach as well and he’s helped me a lot with my game. He wants me to express myself and show people what I can do, so he’s very encouraging in that respect.

“I used to watch him as a player and for me, you can relate to him because he’s been there and done it. He knows what the situation is out on the pitch and it’s very encouraging having him as a manager.”

Stevenage have the likes of Dean Parrett and Charlie Lee in their team, who have both played for Spurs in the past before moving away to gain more regular action. 

Under Sheringham, they made a slow start, but the side seem to be clicking into gear now - and they have moved up the League Two table recently. 

Boro are now occupying 16th place in the table, and Ogilvie will hope that he can continue to be a part of Sheringham's first-team plans. 

The 19-year-old is yet to make his senior debut for Spurs, so will be keen to show that he can cope while playing competitive football, despite his inexperience.
