Player Development in Hong Kong
Over the course of five days, Player Development taught over 500 youngsters 'the Spurs Way' and passed on their expertise to over 100 coaches in 'coach the coaches' sessions.
Player Development Manager Andy Rogers and coaches Anton Blackwood, Danny Hart and Danny Mitchell put together 18 sessions in that time, starting at Hong Kong FC on Monday and finishing with a special session for underprivileged kids with Mauricio Pochettino at Wah Yan College on Friday morning.

These sessions provided moments youngsters and parents alike will never forget. The look on the children's faces when Harry Kane took a selfie of them alongside Victor Wanyama at Hong Kong FC, Vincent Janssen giving an impromptu penalty-taking clinic at Wah Yan College and of course, Mauricio, Jesus Perez, Toni Jimenez and Miguel D'Agostino providing their insight at the same event.
"We had a fantastic week in Hong Kong, coached over 500 kids and 100 coaches and the sheer enthusiasm from everyone was quite something," said Andy. "The feedback we've had has been superb and we all feel we've been able to make a difference in a short space of time."
