Description

Heading, tumbling, skipping and tomfoolery at White Hart Lane as Tottenham’s first team prepare for the new season.

Tottenham prepare for the new season with a light-hearted training session at White Hart Lane. A player is seen struggling to put on his boots, while striker Charlie Wilson – soon to join Huddersfield – has a go in goal. The squad are shown practicing headers before forward Andrew Thompson shows off his skipping. Perhaps they should have taken it more seriously: having finished 2nd the previous year, Spurs ended the season a disappointing 12th.
