Ajet Shehu had a nerve-wracking journey to Tottenham before he even began training with a Premier League club.

He was a talented footballer and had to escape from Prison 331 in Tirana, Albania to flee the persecution Serbs were suffering in the Balkan conflict.  He made it to London with his family and was brought up in West London. and went to Islington Arts and Media School and playing for the football team there, he was a part of the side that won the Camden & Islington Cup in 2005, where he came to the attention of the Barnet scouts.  His talents were spotted after he had trialled through Protec - a company aiming to get players into clubs, who might not get noticed otherwise - and he applied for a BTEC Sports course at his college, with Protec offering him the chance of getting spotted.

Ajet initially played in Barnet's youth team, before he got offers from Reading, Watford and Tottenham Hotspur.  Spurs brought him to train with the club and he joined the Academy full-time in 2007 on a two year professional contract.  On the expiry of his deal, Ajet had only played a handful of youth games and spent time at Norwich City, Leyton Orient, Leatherhead, Staines Town and Ware.

Ajet was released on 1st June 2009 after he had gone for a trial at Cheltenham Town, where he earned a short term deal, playing some pre-season friendlies with the Robins.  Subsequently, he has turned out for Aldershot Town, Ware and Wingate & Finchley, winning their Young Player of the Year award in 2011.

Spent the 2011-12 season with Albanian club Gramozi Erskeke.
