Toby walks the walk!

Posted on 12 October 2016  - 05:00

Toby Alderweireld can never be accused of playing the game at walking pace - unless you saw him in action at Risley Avenue Primary School in Tottenham this week.


The Belgium international is usually quick across the ground when shutting down attackers throughout Europe - but this is not the objective when it comes to Walking Football.

A new project launched by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation is aimed at Year 3 and 4 Primary School children who are disengaged with sport and physical activity.

Toby said: “The idea is brilliant - not all kids in school are ‘sporty’ but this shouldn’t mean that they should be left out of playing sport and not get the opportunity to enjoy the game of football.”
