The Tottenham Hotspur Football Development Centre has linked up with New City College to launch an academy for students at Havering Sixth Form campus from September.
Students studying Sport courses at the college in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, will be able to train up to three times a week with Tottenham Hotspur Global Football Development and Academy coaches. They will also get to play competitive matches in local and national league competitions every Wednesday as part of their study programme.
The launch of the Tottenham Hotspur Football Development Centre at Havering builds on an already successful partnership between the club and New City College.
From September 2021 the Football Development Centre programme will be offered at five NCC campuses across London and Essex – Epping Forest, Redbridge, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and now Havering.
Across NCC, around 300 young sports men and women, aged 16 to 19, will be able to join the programme and will benefit from professional training, sports industry preparation and work experience alongside studying for a BTEC qualification in Sport.
