Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason heaped praise on young talents Matthew Craig and George Abbott.
The duo came on to make their Spurs debuts during a thumping win over Leeds United on the final day of the season.
With Spurs winning 4-1, Mason gave Craig and Abbott their first team bows.
Post-game, he told reporters: “I think obviously that period we were quite fortunate because we had some outstanding young players. I'm taking myself out of that as I don't want to blow my own trumpet. We had Harry Kane, Andros Townsend, Alex Pritchard, Adam Smith, I could name so many players that went on to play in the Premier League and have incredible careers.
“But I would say the most important thing is to have people who have energy, who feel that pride to wear this shirt. Those two lads that came on I said it to them afterwards that they are an example of what an academy player should look like in terms of their work rate.
“I've been in the academy, I know both of them very well and that's not a gift for either of them. That's hard work, consistently every day, doing it right, so they deserve that moment and I really value young players in any squad, because when you've got a player that feels the club and knows what it's like to represent the football club it can be powerful."
