It’s already been a big year for Cameron Lancaster after he made his first Spurs appearance as a late substitute in last month’s 3-1 win over Wigan. Yesterday, the 19 year old striker upstaged his new team mate Bruno Uvini by nailing a hat trick in a Spurs XI 7-3 win over Leyton Orient.

Tottenham’s other goals were scored by Massimo Luongo who has also seen the first team bench in recent weeks, plus strikes from Will Ekong, Simon Dawkins and Cristian Ceballos. Uvini played an hour of the game but there was no comment on his performance on the club website.

As for Lancaster, aside from a very brief spell on loan at Dagenham and Redbridge last year he hasn’t seen any other form of first team football. However, it certainly looks as if a further loan is a logical next step.

  1. Uvini looked great on his video compilation on you tube a real prospect. Then i heard this from Spurs fan Phill Vickery south American correspondent on Talk sport. He said he could not understand why we would get him on loan he said he was not very good a damming statement from one of our own lets hope he is wrong. The lad Lancaster seems too be popping up a lot lately he had a long injury lay off so he could be a late bloomer and another Clive Allen.

  2. Lancaster impressed me when he came on for 15 minutes at the end of the game at WHL. He is big, fast, got all the instincts a striker must have to succeed in the PL. We’ll see him soon at WHL again. Not all talent is grown overseas!

  3. Everytime we find an Academy player knocking in the goals, I am reminded of the likes of Jamie Slabberand Lee Bernard. They scored by the boat load at Reserve and Junior Level, but where are they now?. Mason Okika and Kane have been prolific in the lower club levels, but neither have set any of their loan spells on fire. Hopefully he will come through given that Harry seems to be inclined to throw them in when previous managers havn’t. Look out also for Coulthirst and Coulibaly

  4. I too was impressed by Lancaster on his debut, seems to be mobile, strong, pacy, willing to get stuck in and a bit of a fox in the box, judging from youth team reports. Was disappointed with Kane this season, he seemed to be a bit slow and lumbering, not fast enough, but he’s still only young. It’s great to see all the promising youth players, my fave is Carroll, bit like a young modric to me

  5. Agree about Carroll, he already looks classy on the ball and he just needs a few pies to bulk him up a bit. I look forward to seeing more of him whenever possible in the first team.
    Kane is also interesting, if only for his early scoring record. Hopefully the second half of the loan spell will show some of that promise.
