Our teenage sensation Adel Taarabt made a surprise appearance at the Club’s Kickz project on the Ferry Lane estate in Tottenham on Wednesday.

The project has been running since April 2006, providing young people on the estate an alternative to potential involvement in crime and anti-social behaviour within a constructive and safe environment.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coach football sessions for 11 to 20 year olds, and 18-year-old Frenchman Adel, a regular squad member this season, was only too delighted to take part.

He wowed youngsters with his range of ball skills and hopes the Kickz project can continue to have a positive effect on its community.

He said: “It was a great experience to see first-hand the positive impact the Club has on its local community. Kickz is a great project because it gives something positive for all the young people on the Ferry Lane estate to get involved in.

“As a young footballer, I fully appreciate the need to give talent the best possible chance to blossom, which is clearly what this project helps to do.”
