Talented teenagers will be brainstorming their best ideas after winning a football business competition.

Pupils at Enfield Grammar School in Market Place, representing Tottenham Hotspur, scored an away victory by triumphing at Arsenal’s ground in a regional play-off.

That booked their place in this year’s Premier League Enterprise Challenge, which, through football clubs, provides enterprise education to inspire young people .

Compered by BBC Kickabout presenter, Ben Shires, the final will see six schools do battle as they explain their business ideas aimed at engaging international fans, a task set by Premier League chairman Richard Scudamore.

The other five teams in the final in London on Monday represent Derby, Liverpool, Manchester City, Sunderland and West Ham.

The challenge, run with Sport Relief has engaged more than 11,000 teenagers in educational sessions run by English football clubs since it began in 2009. One hundred schools and 600 young people took part this year.

The judges are former England player Graeme Le Saux, Comic and Sport Relief ambassador Theo Paphitis and Premier League executive office director Peta Bistany.
