The U21 midfielder gave out the certificates and prizes to children from various Haringey schools who have taken part in the educational programme at the Spurs Learning Zone during the Winter Term.

Playing for Success is run by Haringey’s School Standards and Improvement team, using out-of-hours learning to raise attainment at Key Stage Two and Three in literacy, numeracy and ICT.

Over 25 Haringey schools each year have the opportunity to send pupils to Tottenham Hotspur's Playing for Success. Pupils attend two-hour sessions each week for a total of ten weeks, during which they are offered a unique educational experience where skills taught in school are enhanced and developed.

Each session is delivered by a trained teacher and assisted by a team of dedicated Learning Mentors, who are recruited locally and represent the balance of ethnic groups within Haringey.

Tutors and mentors are trained to develop and raise self-esteem. As a result, the Spurs Learning Zone provides a positive learning environment.

The following Haringey schools have taken part in Tottenham Hotspur’s Playing for Success scheme this term:

- Lancasterian Primary

- Tiverton Primary

- The Willow Primary

- St Paul’s and All Hallows Primary

- St Paul’s Roman Catholic Primary

- Welbourne Primary

- Northumberland Park Community School
