Located in the the middle of the famous Happy Valley Racecourse, this AIA/Hong Kong FC session saw teams from Under-6 to Under-16 enjoy the benefits of coaching in the Spurs way with the Global Coaching team - and then to cap it all, eight first team players turned up!

Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane, Filip Lesniak, GK Nkoudou, Kazaiah Sterling, Jan Vertonghen, Michel Vorm and Victor Wanyama thrilled the local youngsters, joining in with the sessions, signing autographs and posing for many a selfie!

Global Coaching Manager Andy Rogers said: "First of all, we've had the opportunity to engage with players from Hong Kong Football Club and the kids were fantastic, really engaged and to have the first team players here as well topped it all off.

"In the first hour of the session we worked with Under-6s right through to Under-14s, we also had an additional needs group who came in called the Crusaders. In the second hour we worked with Under-14s to Under-16s.

"The sessions were structured, everyone knew what they were doing and the players were delighted to get involved."

The team is back in Asia to face Hong Kong champions Kitchee SC at the HK National Stadium on Friday. Tickets are still available by visiting www.cityline.com or by calling (+852) 2111 5333, as well as Cityline outlets.
