Tottenham Hotspur close Spurs Lodge training ground in Epping Forest
Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed it will close its old training ground as the club completes its move to a new site.
The north London club will stop all training activities at Spurs Lodge, in Epping Forest, at the end of the month.
It has used the site since 1996 but more than a year and a half ago began a move to its Enfield training centre, in Hotspur Way, because the site was too small.
A club spokesman said that despite leaving the lodge, the club will continue to provide community football courses in the area.
He said: "Tottenham Hotspur has kept an active presence at Spurs Lodge over the past two years since we moved to our new training centre in Enfield.
“During that period, the club has continued to deliver community programming both at the Lodge and across Epping Forest and will continue to do so.
"The club's programme at the Lodge will come to a close at the end of February and we are now currently in discussions with partners about the long term plans for the Spurs Lodge site.
“These will be brought forward in due course once the appropriate engagement has taken place with key stakeholders including the local authority."
Spurs Lodge was previously the training ground for the club's first team and the home of the Tottenham Hotspur Academy.
