Heurelho Gomes paid a special visit to a youth club run by Enfield Children and Young Persons Services at the Alan Pullinger Centre, Southgate, on Friday night.

His appearance was part of the Club's commitment to Premier League community initiative Creating Chances, which will see Enfield Children and Young Persons Services awarded £3,000 towards the running of the youth club.

Gomes met the young attendees on the night and took part in the range of activities on offer, including table football, air hockey and a Nintendo Wii contest.

Coaches from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation were also present on the night to provide football activities.

Gomes said: "It was an enjoyable night and it's important for me and the players to take time out to support local initiatives and meet young fans.

"The Club's community work is noticeable and I saw for myself on the night the effect the positive effect it has on young people."

The youth club is aimed at providing social inclusion for young people aged 12 to 19, many of whom are disabled and/or vulnerable and is run in partnership with Enfield disability group, DAZU.

Gomes is just one of the many Tottenham Hotspur first team players to take their time to show support for local good causes and initiatives over the course of the football season.
