A group of school children from South Korea met their footballing hero Lee Young-Pyo at Spurs Lodge last week.

A group of school children from South Korea met their footballing hero Lee Young-Pyo at Spurs Lodge last week.

The children from different schools in Seoul spent a fortnight in the UK on a residential course learning English in the morning before football coaching sessions with our coaches in the afternoon.

They were given a tour of White Hart Lane before the highlight of their visit – a trip to our training ground at Spurs Lodge to meet with South Korean international and star of two World Cups, Young-Pyo, who happily signed autographs and posed for pictures with the youngsters.

The visit was part of our continuing links with South Korea following last year's successful Peace Cup trip.

Kathryn Robinson, Director of Community Development, said: "Football coaching courses for young people from other countries is a great way to encourage a new generation of Spurs supporters worldwide. We have an exceptional group of coaches at the Club and it's a credit to them that children are prepared to travel so far to take part in programmes like this."
