Peter Crouch paid a special visit to one of the summer sports programmes the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation are currently running for school children in Waltham Forest.

The striker made an appearance at Ridgeway Park, Chingford, to take part in football and multi-sports activities, as well as a Question and Answer session for the delighted youngsters.

He said: "It's great for me to come down and play my part. All the kids were enjoying themselves and I certainly was as well.

"The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coaches give up their time to make the day as enjoyable as possible for the kids, and for us players, coming along to visit is the least we can do.

"I remember when I was young the school summer holidays seemed a bit too long and you could get bored. But with the amount of activities on offer for everyone, these summer programmes certainly keep everyone occupied and out of trouble."

The Ridgeway Park session was one of six currently running in Waltham Forest, offering children a range of sports coaching free-of-charge during the school summer holidays.

The programmes are run in partnership with the Borough's Extended Services and Sports Development teams.

Peter is just one of the many First Team players to give up their time to community initiatives over the course of the season.
