Tiger #1 – Ollie Skipp (Tottenham Hotspur FC and England schoolboys)
Ollie is one of England’s brightest prospects and we are proud to say we were part of his football journey. Ollie was born in Welwyn Garden City in 2000 and played for the Tigers in his early years before being spotted by Spurs. Rumour has it that his main influences to date have been Mauricio Pochettino of Spurs and Justin Smith of Bengeo Tigers!
He plays regularly for the U23 team and recently played against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions Youth League. Last night Ollie played a full game for the Spurs U23 team against Man United at Old Trafford. We are told he even has a FIFA 18 profile!
Ollie left Richard Hale School last Summer to concentrate on his football career. We are proud to have him as one of our former players and we will closely follow his progress for both Spurs and England. You can see the recognition he is getting from the article below and isn’t it fantastic to see a normal kid living the football dream.
