It sounds as if young Spence is doing well down at Bristol City, with their results improving since his arrival. He is playing at right back, interestingly, and whilst it is only the Championship, he has done well enough for the Robins to extend his loan.
But Grant has insisted on a 24 hour stand by clause, enabling us to recall Spence should we need him. It would be great if we could pull sufficiently clear of trouble to allow the boy to enjoy a run out in the Prem before the end of the season. That's dangerously optimistic I know, so I'm going to retract it immediately just in case. But, you know what I mean...
Spence is tall and quick and has filled out since that picture! Let's hope his development continues apace. It would be great to see an Academy Graduate holding down a first team place in the Prem next season!
To any Bristol City fan visiting the site, how has he looked in a Robins shirt?
