LEISURELY PURSUITS WITH EDGAR

Edgar Davids visited Network Rail's 'No Messin' event at Enfield's Southbury Leisure Centre last week ending their country-wide tour on a high.

He signed autographs and posed for photos but he also treated the fans there to an unforgettable experience - a unique football session in which he taught the youngsters some of his famous tricks.

The Club was delighted to lend its support to the tour - a series of two-day events in 10 cities across the UK, created to give young people things to do rather than put their lives at risk by playing on the railways - a subject close to many people in Enfield following some recent high-profile accidents in the area.

Three full-time coaches were already on-hand teaching Enfield youngsters some key football skills but it did not take Edgar long to take control of his own session, running some of the young fans present through the two-touch warm-up drill the senior squad uses at Spurs Lodge before starting a keep-up competition.

He also took time to chat to the organisers of the event before returning to talk to a younger group and pass on some ideas - including his most important tip - practice everyday.
