A midfielder turned
defender, Alexander McQueen's pace helped turn him into
a decent full back.
Brought up in Rainham, Essex, where he attended Gaynes Language College, Upminster. At schoolboy level, Alex represented Havering District football side and Essex Schools.
Alex started his footballing days as a left midfielder, but being right footed, he was moved to right midfield or right back. After joining Spurs, he became a defender, comfortable on either side of the defence. The defender started training with Spurs at Under-15 at Myddleton House. Had a day trial that went well and became a first year trainee.
