It is a matter of public knowledge that The Frenford Clubs are in the process of vacating Oakfield (Jack Carter Pavilion) and Cricklefield, in order to occupy the former PLA site in The Drive, Ilford.
News has come out the Spurs Academy are to occupy the Frenford Oakfield site for two years from July 2010.
They are providing their own security which may provide a few surprises for the local community.
Tottenham Hotspur F.C. previously conducted First Team Training at a site in Luxborough Lane, Chigwell. This site is being vacated and the senior players are moving to the yet to be completed Training Centre at Bullsmoor, Enfield (west of the A10 and just south of the M25), thus displacing the Academy temporarily.
Nothing else can thus be built at Oakfield for at least two years and the involvement of a major football club may yet continue into the future as Spurs will leave a lot of infrastructure behind.
