"Spurs star impressing at Stortford FC
By Web Reporter

ON-LOAN Spurs star Jesse Waller-Lassen has been earning rave reviews during his spell at Bishop’s Stortford.
Blues boss Rod Stringer is set to move the player back onto the wing for Saturday’s Blue Square Bet North match away to HarrogateTown, after the youngster filled in at right-back against Boston United last Monday.

Jesse [Waller-Lassen] has done quite well at right-back but I want to use him further up the pitch,” explained Stringer.
Teenager Waller-Lassen has shown good distribution and dribbling skills. His emergence has meant that right-back Jack Lampe has been frozen out and he has joined Ryman League premier division club Concord Rangers on loan.
Lampe could be recalled at short notice, however.
Along with a right-back, Stringer plans to bring in a striker.
Former Kilmarnock forward Donovan Simmonds has quit football while he resolves personal issues.
“I am looking for a striker and I am also looking for a defender [from a League One club] to give us a bit of depth,” said Stringer.
Keeper Ross Kitteridge is still sidelined with a knee injury and Luke Chambers will continue to don the gloves in the next two league games.
Meanwhile, Stringer is demanding his side quickly march up the table after they recorded their first league win over Boston.
Having lost their first three games in Blue Square Bet North, Stortford secured an impressive win over the fancied Pilgrims.
And Stringer wants more of the same when his team take on Harrogate before they host Solihull Moors on Tuesday.
The Stortford boss said: “We want to build on that and kick on. We need to get into double figures as quickly as possible. I feel our performances have been quite good, but we have made mistakes and you can only make one mistake, not score and then lose.”
He added: “The games coming up are both tough ones. Anybody can beat anyone in this league.
Harrogate is a long way to go on the coach but I want full commitment for the cause.”
The Blues boss remembers the Yorkshire outfit as a direct side from when the two clubs met back in January.
Stringer knows little about Solihull as the two teams had already met twice in the league before his arrival in December.
Stringer gave a goalscoring debut to striker Afolabi Obafemi against Boston, who has been signed on work experience from League One club Leyton Orient, but the Blues boss wants an experienced hitman.
Stringer said: “He got the goal but he needs more game time. He did okay. He did not set the world alight.”

Kudus Oyenuga has signed for Hayes and Yeading if anyone is interested. Last I looked he'd scored 3 in 3.

he was released remember talking to him on twitter wishing him all the best
Yeah, me too.

Fair play, SP. Thanks for the share. Hope Jesse does well as he's a really lovely and funny guy going by Twitter. But he's not on loan, so I'll close this down.

Perhaps someone might think about a "Spurs graduates" thread in Gen Footy...?
