Club celebrates FA Girls’ Football Week

In partnership with Barnet & Southgate, Epping Forest and Hertfordshire Regional colleges, the Club hosted a session to over 50 girls at Hotspur Way during FA Girls’ Football Week earlier this month.

The girls, who study on the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Education and Football Development Centre programme, took part in football drills and matches under the watchful eye of Spurs Ladies manager, Karen Hills.

The programme aims to inspire academic achievement for girls aged 16-19, offering a Football Education Academy in which they can strive academically off the pitch as well as receiving high standard football coaching.

A pathway is offered through to the Spurs Ladies senior sides, with current Barnet & Southgate college student Ronnell Humes a regular for the reserves, with first team appearances including an assist for the winning goal in the National Cup Final at the end of last season.

Karen said: “The college programmes are growing from strength to strength. The session at the Training Centre was fantastic, with over 50 girls across the three college programmes coming together to have the opportunity to train at a world-class facility.”
