Coming in to White Hart Lane firstly on trial and then on a permanent transfer, Lars Hirschfeld has impressed Hans Segers enough to get a regular place in the reserves behind Keller and Sullivan and even find a substitutes place when injuries struck.
The Canadian keeper has a good range of skills for his role; confident with his feet, although sometimes a little heart-stopping; good handling, with the right choice of when to punch; good shot-stopping reflexes and a good spring to dive upwards and to the side when required.
Although he was not tested in the first team, he did enough in the second string to show he could be a real asset and it was hoped that he would develop well under the tutelage of Segers and Jennings at the club. However, with new goalkeeper signings, it was decided to let Lars leave at the end of the season and he went on loan to Luton Town, Gillingham and Dundee United, before being allowed to join Leicester City.
Later, Lars moved on to sign for Rosenborg of Norway and then CFR Klug in Romania.
