Club appoints Director of Community Development

Posted on 18 June 2004  - 12:00

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).

The Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Kathryn Robinson as Director of Community Development.

Kathryn joins us from the Premier League where she was Head of Corporate and Community Affairs for four years.

She achieved notable success in that role including the introduction of Customer Charters in 2000/1; the management of the Premier League's relationship with the Independent Football Commission and more latterly the further development of the Premier League's community activity through schemes such as Premier League Reading Stars, Barclaycard Free Kicks, Playing for Success and the Prince's Trust football initiative — the last of these schemes this month receiving a 'Big Tick' award from Business in the Community.

On her arrival at Spurs later this summer, Kathryn will be responsible for our community strategy linked to our development plans in both the UK and overseas.

Chairman Daniel Levy commented: "Kathryn's appointment adds significant strength to our community activity. She brings to the club a wealth of experience in her field and we are delighted with her appointment."

Kathryn read Law at New Hall, Cambridge and was elected to the sabbatical post of President, Cambridge University Students Union in 1989/90. She left the legal profession in 1992 to join the BBC, becoming the Corporation’s first female Sports News Correspondent. Kathryn joined the FA Premier League in 2000 where she was Head of Corporate and Community Affairs, managing the £60 million community investment made by the FA Premier League and its Clubs each year.
