Members from two of our Official Supporters' Clubs had a morning to remember on Tuesday when they took part in a training session at Hotspur Way alongside Ledley King.
North West Spurs and Yorkshire Spurs, who are both playing the Spurs Legends side this summer to raise money for charity, were put through their paces by our Global Football Development coaches ahead of their upcoming games, with our legendary former captain offering advice and guidance.
First up, North West Spurs face Spurs Legends on Sunday 25 June (KO 11am) at Hyde United in Greater Manchester in support of the JE3 Foundation.
Set up in memory of our former defender Justin Edinburgh following his death in 2019, the JE3 Foundation provides specialist training sessions across the country to raise public awareness of CPR and give people the ability and confidence to save lives.
Then, Yorkshire Spurs, who recently won the To Care Is To Do Award at this year's end-of-season Official Supporters' Club awards for their outstanding contribution to charitable causes, will take on the Legends on Sunday 2 July (KO 2pm) at Tadcaster Albion AFC in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
Statistics show that one in eight men will get prostate cancer during their lifetime, with the charity working to encourage as many people as possible to get themselves checked.
Paul Pavlou, Chairman of Yorkshire Spurs, said: "From the moment we got here, the whole day has been a fantastic experience. Ledley's been great, giving us tips and cheering us on, and now we feel ready to take on the Spurs Legends!"
Patrick Nottage, Chairman of North West Spurs, added: "Thank you to Spurs for organising such a memorable morning for both teams at the training ground today. It's been great to receive some world-class training from our Global Football coaches and of course, Club legend Ledley King."
