Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The Friday Interview spotlights Michael Stone, the Spurs Academy coach who is in his first season with the club.

Nothing remarkable about that, you may ponder, but Stone is the youngest professional coach in the land — having just celebrated his 22<sup>nd</sup> birthday.

It is a case of Spurs concentrating firmly on the future — and not just on the pitch.

Stone used to loiter outside Spurs Lodge as a youngster with designs set on one day taking a training session there himself. He accepted the challenge of obtaining the necessary qualifications and is now living his dream in his hometown of Chigwell.
