Spurs coach McDermott delighted Dawson attended FA Youth Cup win

Tottenham U18 coach John McDermott was delighted skipper Michael Dawson attended their FA Youth Cup win over Middlesbrough.

Dawson saw Connor Ogilvie score twice in the 2-1 win.

McDermott told the Spurs website: "I'd like to thank the people for turning up to support us and creating a really positive atmosphere for us to play in. I don't think there's many clubs that would have that level of fans' support - I think that's quite unique for a Youth Cup game

"And when you've got a club captain like Michael Dawson who turns up beforehand, goes in with the players and spends a considerable amount of time afterwards with every player - I think it's very special.

"For the club captain not only to turn up but to spend as much time afterwards as he did with the individuals I think would be very, very rare among Youth Cup ties and under-18 games. The crowd and Michael being there, and his genuine authentic interest in the players, added another dimension to a very positive evening."
