Local lad Luke Amos arrived at the Lamex in January 2018; signed by Boro’ boss Darren Sarll on loan from Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur. Born in Welwyn Garden City, playing for Stevenage obviously wouldn’t be a million miles from home for the “industrious central midfielder“; a player who had been on the books at White Hart Lane since July 2013.
Unlike some of the young talent borrowed from top flight clubs by Boro’ over the years, Amos came to us having already put himself on the fringes of the Spurs first team; appearing twice on the bench for the North London side, though not quite getting a taste of the action under Mauricio Pochettino. It didn’t seem as if it would be too much more of a wait, however. All in good time…
Luke Amos: Before Boro’
Boro’ wouldn’t be the side to introduce him to senior football. That honour went to Southend United, with whom the midfielder played for on loan during the 2016-7 League One campaign. More often than not, though, you’ll have found Amos turning out for Spurs’ Development Squad, Under-18s and Under-21s. He had also turned out at England U18 level prior to his arrival at Stevenage; all signs that a bright future is surely in store for this midfielder.
