Spurs join forces with the Police

Posted on 10 March 2002  - 12:00

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).

Our Community Scheme linked up with the Metropolitan Police to provide a week of coaching here at White Hart Lane.

Over 300 children from seven schools across Haringey received professional football tuition from our community coaches.

The police officers present helped to referee some of the games as well as donning their boots to play alongside the children.

The school children were also treated to a mini-tour of the stadium and the week culminated with a six-a-side tournament with Earlsmeade School coming through champions.

Along with a talk about citizenship, bullying, strangers and road safety, all the of the children received a Met Police 'Don't Bug Me' T-shirt and Tottenham souvenirs.

The children were also advised about issues such as personal safety and mobile phone security.

We would like to thank Railtrack for providing transportation for the children.
