About 30 children went soccer crazy when the Tottenham Hotspur Football Roadshow came to Licensed Victuallers School last Monday and Tuesday.
The youngsters, aged between five and 15, did training activities aimed at improving their technique and ball skills.
Youth coaches from the Premier League club have visited the London Road school for the past five years, and even though no players were present, the young footballers received top-notch training.
After learning the basics, the children were split up into different age groups and competed in games and competitions using the skills they had just learnt.
Paul Griffiths, football develop-ment coach at Tottenham Hotspur, said: "They were a fantastic group of boys who had a brilliant drive and determination with the coaching.
"It was a really great couple of days."
