Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

In the first of a two-part video special, Academy director Peter Suddaby talks about the aims, objectives and success of our youth development system.

Peter looks back on what was a largely successful campaign for the club in youth football, the under-19s reaching the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup and finishing fourth in their league with a team consisting of under-18 players, while the under-17s again won their league section before falling at the quarter-final stage of the play-offs.

He stresses that, for the staff and club, it is more about development than results and takes pridein the fact that 11 second year trainees remain with the club for the forthcoming campaign.
