What an amazing experience and opportunity!
A group of 25 Epping Forest College students were rewarded for their excellent performance on the college's partnership programme with Tottenham Hotspur, with a visit to the state-of-the-art Tottenham Hotspur training centre.
The lucky 25, chosen for consistent hard work on their course and successful results both on and off the pitch, enjoyed a tour of the Academy complex and the amazing indoor training dome. They then had a 90-minute training session on one of the 4g outdoor training pitches, alongside the first team training areas.
Students' comments included:
What an amazing experience and opportunity! and the facilities are crazy good!
Paul Griffiths, Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach, said "It was an incredible trip for the students and a well-deserved opportunity for those that have shown that hard work pays off. The students have shown great attitude and work ethic both in the classroom and on the training pitch since we started in September and they have earned themselves this day out at this incredible facility.
All the students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I am sure it has inspired them to keep working hard both academically and on their football training with us. The EFC football teams are performing really well right now too, and the students can be proud of how they have performed.
