Tune in to BBC1 at 4.30pm today to see Gareth Bale, Harry Redknapp and our Academy feature on Blue Peter.

Spurs on Blue Peter!

Presenter Helen Skelton visits Spurs Lodge to learn how to become a football coach before putting her skills into practice with our U12 side.

She finds out from our Academy Manager, John McDermott, about the footballing philosophy we instill in our young players and is set the challenge of picking a team of players to take on a group of John’s in a 5-a-side match.

Helen then gets a player’s perspective on what makes a good coach from Gareth before receiving some top managerial tips from Harry.

Watch later to find out how Helen fairs as a coach in a not-to-missed feature for any of our young fans.
