A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans have flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on an update to emerge from their U18s game on Thursday night.

The Spurs youth side sealed a comfortable victory on Thursday in the FA Youth Cup against Ipswich but it was one player in particular which received a lot of praise from the Spurs fans.

Is Devine one to watch for the future?





Youngster, Alfie Devine, helped himself to a goal in the 5-1 victory as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring injury sustained last month.

Devine became the youngest ever goalscorer for the Spurs senior side earlier in the year in their FA Cup clash against Marine and these fans flocked to share their high hopes after his latest goal for the U18s.

What did these fans have to say?

“Star Boy Szn”

“generational talent.”
“No surprise the kids generational”
“Play him over Dele”
“He has to get another chance in the first team”
“Needs to be in the first team”

Despite being of the age range, Devine has not played a huge deal of football for the U18s this season with the large majority of his game time coming for the U23s (via Transfermarkt).

With six goals already to his name in his nine Premier League 2 appearances, it is apparent these fans feel the young midfielder could be in for a bright future with the Lilywhites.
