Lucia Leon, Toni-Anne Wayne, Bianca Baptiste and Amy Lewington joined Spurs Ladies Manager Karen Hills to take part in a workshop with students who have been tasked with developing a marketing strategy to raise awareness of the team within the school community.

The 12 week programme is designed to teach pupils about the basic principles of business and enterprise and sees members of the Foundation’s Education and Skills team run workshops within the school.

During the visit the Spurs Ladies players gave the students a first-hand insight into what it’s like to play women’s football and provided some feedback on their initial ideas for their marketing strategy.

The final stage of the project will see the students at Cheshunt School deliver a business presentation to demonstrate their ideas.

As a thanks for their hard work, students will be invited to watch a Spurs Ladies game at Cheshunt FC.

Karen said: “It was great to meet the students at Cheshunt School. They have some great ideas on how to drive momentum around women’s football amongst their school friends and we hope that we’ve been able to give them some food for thought for their marketing scheme.

"We wish them the best of luck with the rest of the project and look forward to welcoming them to one of our upcoming fixtures at our new home, Cheshunt FC.”

Gareth Dace, Employment and Skills Manager, Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, said: “Being able to introduce the students to members of Spurs Ladies really helped to add context to this project. We hope that the class will now be able to come up with some effective strategies that will build awareness locally of the team playing home games at Cheshunt FC.”
