Local schools get a taste of Cup magic!

Ahead of Saturday's trip to Manchester United in the 4th round of this season's competition, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation took the chance to give local schools the opportunity of a lifetime when the FA Cup Trophy Tour arrived at White Hart Lane.

The Trophy Tour is a fully interactive experience, aimed at children between 7-11 and their families.

It lasts approximately 30 minutes and leads visitors through a fun and engaging journey, reliving the most memorable goals, shock giant-killings and classic Cup Final triumphs from the past 128 years.

Taking centre stage is the opportunity for visitors to walk in the footsteps of Wembley legends like Ricky Villa by scoring the winning goal at Wembley in a virtual FA Cup Final, and then create their very own piece of history as they get to hold the actual FA Cup trophy.

Through the close links established with local schools through its extensive education programme, the Foundation invited pupils from St Francis de Sales, Northumberland Park Community School, Lea Valley Primary and St Pauls and All Hallows to take part in the experience.

Foundation coaches were also on hand to guide participants through the Tour's mini football pitch and ‘Power Kick', a football game where the speed of your kick is measured against the professionals.

Exclusive footage from the day is now available in the Extra Time section of Spurs TV Online.
