Tottenham Hotspur are losing a member of staff in January, with Oliver Deeming leaving his role as Junior Academy Senior Groundsman at Spurs to take on the Head Groundsman role at FC Copenhagen.

In recent months, it has been Tottenham who have been snapping up staff members from other clubs.

Obviously, Ange Postecoglou arrived from Celtic in the summer and has had a blistering start to life in North London.

Since then, we’ve seen Scott Munn appointed as chief football officer. More recently, Johan Lange and Rob Mackenzie have been lured away from Aston Villa to form Tottenham’s scouting and recruitment team.

Oliver Deeming swapping North London for Denmark

Now, the Lilywhites are going to know how that feels, as they will lose academy groundsman, Oliver Deeming, in the New Year.

FC Copenhagen have confirmed they will be hiring Deeming in January. He will vacate his role at Spurs and begin work maintaining the Danish outfit’s training pitches and stadium.

Deeming actually only joined Spurs in August of this year, but has already secured a promotion and a big move to Denmark in the near future.

The facilities at Copenhagen have been criticised recently by Denmark manager, Kasper Hjulmand. As per Bold, Hjulmand claimed the Copenhagen pitch was not up to European standards and described the situation as “annoying.”

It will be Deeming’s job to get that rectified in 2024, and Copenhagen will be hoping his experience at Tottenham will lead to an improvement in their own standards moving forward.

Spurs Web Opinion

Fair play to Oliver Deeming, who after just three months in the job has already bagged himself a top job at a reputable club. It’s a lot of responsibility and sounds like a big challenge to get everything back in order, but that’s what many people love to take on in their careers. Everyone at The Spurs Web would like to wish Oliver all the best!
