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).

I signed a contract with Tottenham to teach kids tricks and skills through the community department.

Definitely, what you have to do is find out where you are going wrong and put it right with the tricks. We start off with the simple tricks, teach them and then work through to the harder ones.

I used play a lot of park football and be in and around the semi-pro game, but I never really got the chance to step it up a level. I took my football into the freestyling, which is what I'm good at.

I went into a competition with 30,000 contestants and had to perform my skills in front of the judges, who picked out the best people. I got to the semi-finals and that was great for me.

From there an agent approached me about promoting me as one of the UK's top freestylers and I've done adverts on TV and things like that. I hadn't really done it as a job before then and wasn't particularly clean and coordinated. If I went into something like that now I think I would be able to challenge for the winning spot in the UK championship.

You should practice about two hours a day - some days more, some days less.

I've been on Dream Team, adverts Sky Sports, Nikelodoen and the Disney Channel

Mr woo
He is the world's best and is the one I look up to. He is the Zinedine Zidane of freestyle, the No.1, and that is where I want to get. There are stories going round that he was in a circus act from the age of three juggling a football. He is so used to the touch of the ball it never goes wrong for him.

I can't risk getting injured so I had to give up.

Fantastic, we had full numbers on the first one and a huge demand since then. Kids are enjoying it because it is the fun aspect of the game. They are learning ball control and all the tricks they want to learn. It gives them the confidence to bring it out in matches.

I've always supported Spurs. I come from Tottenham originally and all my family are from Tottenham. We moved out to Enfield but my heart is still there.

dream
I was doing tricks with Robbie Keane before and this is a fantasy for me.
