Struggling striker opens up: I want to show Tottenham coaches what I can do
By Dominic Toner
Tottenham striker Shayon Harrison has revealed he is desperate to impress the club’s coaches during his loan spell at Yeovil.
The 19-year-old is currently on a loan away from White Hart Lane at League Two outfit Yeovil and is experiencing regular first team football.
He managed to end his struggling goal drought by scoring his first for the club on Saturday and is keen to continue his development.
The forward netted in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Exeter and has now scored once in 11 appearances for Yeovil.
Harrison still has plenty of time on his side to develop and will hope to follow in the footsteps of academy product Harry Kane.

The English teenager has explained that he wants to impress coaches from the north London club every time he steps on to the pitch.
“It was a long time coming. I’m really happy to get off the mark and hopefully now I can push on from here,” Harrison said, as quoted by Somerset Live. ”One of the coaches came down and watched me against Exeter. I spoke to him after the game and he was really happy with my progress and how I’m getting on, which is encouraging me and telling me to keep going.
“I just want to come out here and show not only the people at Yeovil but the people at Spurs what I’m capable of and what I can do.”
Harrison is one of a number exciting young talents at Spurs and manager Mauricio Pochettino has installed the belief that a first team chance is a real possibility, with academy product Harry Winks earning a senior promotion this season.
England international Kane benefited from loan spells away from Spurs as a youngster and is now reaping the rewards.
Harrison will hope he can follow a similar path and will be keen to become more consistent in front of goal.
