Harry Redknapp and Heurelho Gomes both paid visits to Kickz projects run by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation on Thursday night.

The manager stopped off at Northumberland Park Community School in Haringey, situated a stones throw from White Hart Lane, to offer his football knowledge to those involved and highlight the importance of the Club's community work.

Harry said: "The Foundation and the coaches do a great job in the community and I'm pleased to be here. The kids are fantastic and they love being out playing football and that's what it's all about.

"There's some great potential here and if they practice as much as possible, show commitment and work hard they can achieve anything in life."

Gomes was in Harlow to launch the newest of the eight Kickz projects run by the Foundation.

The popular goalkeeper also voiced his support for the Foundation's good work: "It was a pleasure for me to visit what is clearly a successful and an extremely positive project the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is running here.

"As players, we are well aware of the work our Club is doing off the pitch to help young people in the community, and we are always happy to show our faces in support."

Over 1,300 young people participate in Tottenham Hotspur Foundation-run Kickz projects across five London boroughs each year.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation provides 5,000 hours of free provision annually for young people and sessions have been proven to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

The Club's good work with Kickz has resulted in Tottenham Hotspur being shortlisted in five categories at the national Kickz Awards taking place at Wembley Stadium on Thursday, October 29. The Club has been nominated in numerous categories including the highly-prized overall Club Achievement Award,

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is responsible for one of the very first Kickz projects, launched on the Ferry Lane Estate in Tottenham in April 2006.

Today Kickz is currently being delivered by 39 professional football clubs' community teams across the country, working in partnership with local authorities, police forces and other agencies.

The programme also has strong national multi-agency backing across the football, sport and music industry, along with the Government and Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
