Richard’s inspirational story

Posted on 21 July 2016  - 06:05

This week the Premier League celebrated some of its most inspirational stories from on and off the pitch, one of which was close to home for the Club and its Foundation.


Richard Allicock grew up around a life of crime and, after a promising football career did not materialise, found himself out of work and with little prospects until he started casually coaching at a Club community project running on the Broadwater Farm estate.

Just over 10 years later and Richard is Community Development Manager at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation having become an inspirational figure within the area in which he grew up, ensuring the next generation of young people growing up in similar circumstances are given the same opportunities he was.
