Contributing to the women's game

Posted on 10 February 2016  - 01:45

You will recall from previous newsletters that we had the pleasure of hosting eight current and former international women’s players taking their UEFA A Coaching License at Hotspur Way recently.


Working with coaches and players from our Academy, Foundation and Ladies over the course of a week gave the likes of Rachel Yankey, Kelly Smith and Laura Bassett an insight into the world of coaching that they found invaluable as they progress into the next stages of their careers.

The importance of hosting the course is made clear by statistics revealing a startling lack of female coaches within the game - currently 80% of coaches within the women’s game are men.

Click the player above to see BBC London’s feature on the course and we congratulate the ladies on completing their first stage of what will hopefully be a lengthy coaching careers.
