Academy stars Jake Livermore and Kyle Fraser-Allen spoke at Haringey’s anti-bullying rally at White Hart Lane stadium on Thursday.Around 200 young people from schools across the Borough marched from Tottenham Green all the way down the High Road to the stadium during the afternoon in support of national anti-bullying week.

The event was planned by Haringey’s Youth Council in order for the Borough’s young people to express their opposition to bullying.

As well as being greeted on arrival at the stadium by our two players, the participants were congratulated for their efforts by the Mayor of Haringey, Sheik G.L Thompson among other dignitaries.

All participants and the lads then signed an anti-bullying charter before being treated to a range of performances, talks and workshops.

Jake, who has travelled with the first-team squad this season, said to the audience: “You should all give yourselves a pat on the back for your efforts in making this event happen, and it is a good cause myself and Kyle are proud to support.”

Kyle, 17, added: “I think we’ve all experienced bullying, either first-hand or second-hand at some point in our lives, and it’s horrible, so we know how important it is to support this kind of thing.”
