GFA Enfield Under 9’s player Elijah Ebanks signs for Tottenham Hotspur FC!

Elijah joined GFA Enfield 3 years ago as a 6 year old boy and he played his first season in our Under 7 Lions team.¬†Elijah always had strength & power in his game but it wasn’t until he became an Under 8’s player that his technical development and decision making really began to shine. At this stage Elijah was scouted by our contact at Spurs aka Bob Harbour who took Elijah into the Spurs Development programme where he spent just over 1 year training with Spurs.

To support his development we moved Elijah up one age age group into our Under 9 Lions team where he would be challenged even further. Elijah continued to develop and impress and despite the coronavirus lockdown uncertainty Elijah was offered a contract to join Tottenham Hotspur which his family agreed to.

Elijah is officially one of the first ever virtual signings (God bless Zoom), all the hard work, practice and great attitude had paid off!

As always for all our players who progress onwards and upwards to pro academy football we say well done to his team mates, his coaches and well done to Elijah & family!

We wish Elijah all the best and good luck on the next chapter of your football journey!
