Working in association with St Anthony’s Secondary School, International Head coaches Ryan Hall and Miles Leighton, worked with up to 120 players aged between 11-17, across two sessions per day.

In addition to the work with the students, they also mentored the local coaches throughout the week.

The course proved a huge success and feedback from our staff was extremely positive with players and coaches enthusiastic and receptive of the programme.

Ricky Santos, St Anthony’s Secondary School said: "The SASS/Tottenham Hotspur Football Development International Player Development Programme was a huge success, culminating with a closing ceremony attended by officials of The Ministry of Sports, The Antigua and Barbuda Football Association and the President of the National Olympic Committee and parents and supporters.

"Both Miles and Ryan are excellent ambassadors for Tottenham Hotspur Football Development and represented the club admirably and proudly."
