  • Future of women’s game in good hands

    Newsletter 15 January 2016 exclusive

    Anybody who watched this year’s Ballon D’Or awards would have been left in no doubt as to the growth of the women’s game.

    Last summer’s World Cup in Canada captured the imagination of millions and recognition was gained at the star-studded ceremony in Zurich when Carli Lloyd, of champions USA, picked up the Women’s Player of the Year award and shared the limelight alongside men’s winner Lionel Messi on the night.

    The Club is playing its part in securing the future of the women’s game in this country, with eight internationals, including England World Cup stars Laura Bassett and Casey Stoney, alongside legends such as Kelly Smith, Rachel Yankey and Mary Phillip set to take their UEFA A Coaching License courses at Hotspur Way later this month.

    We wish them all luck and hope that they can follow in the footsteps of the likes of our very own Spurs Ladies Head Coach, Karen Hills, as part of an exciting group of young women’s coaches in the country today.
