The club are set to launch free monthly coaching sessions for visually impaired young people at White Hart Lane.

In a new initiative for our Football in the Community department, in association with the London Sports Forum for disabled people (LSFDP), the coaching sessions are available for children between the ages of 6-17 and will begin on May 15 from 10am - 12pm.

The LSF are delighted with the support of Spurs in the project and state that the involvement will play a key role in the development of regular opportunities for coaching and competition.

James Isaac, from our Community department, added that he is looking forward to progressing the scheme to enable the young players to move to a higher level of football.

"I am delighted that we can provide opportunities for children who are visually Impaired to participate in football and I look forward to developing the players so that they can take part in regular tournaments and matches," said James.

"In the future I would like to see the children gaining experience from our expertise coaching and for them to progress on to playing for senior teams."
