Spurs U17s 2 Fulham 1

Our Under-17s came back from the dead to grab maximum points against Fulham. In an entertaining match we trailed 1-0 with just three minutes left only for Lee Gardner and Jamie Slabber, on as substitute just a few minutes earlier, to turn defeat into victory.

Boss Jimmy Neighbour said: "It was a very good game, Fulham played some good stuff but so did we. We had a lot of chances and finally won the game in the last few minutes."

Spurs U17s: Rutherford, Lee, Gardner, Marney, Henry, O’Donoghue, Noto, Wetner, Sutton, Vedeux (Slabber), Thomas (Foster). Unused: Burch.

Fulham U19s 0 Spurs 0

Our Under-19s picked up a point at Fulham with boss Pat Holland declaring: "It was a good game with both sides looking to play."

Spurs U19s 2 Southampton 1

Our Under-19s came from a goal down to deservedly take the point against the Saints. They trailed 1-0 after a disappointing first half but put it right almost immediately after the break with two quickfire goals.

Luca Di Giuliantonio levelled it after 50 minutes and it wasn’t long before Yannick Kamanan (pictured) hit the winner after fine work from Lee Barnard.

Spurs U19s: Attwell, Kelly, Herron, Consorti, Quilter, Fortune, Snee, Barnard, Kamanan, Jackson, Burke, Partin. Subs: Lacy, Di Giuliantonio, Adams.

Ipswich U17s 3 Spurs 1

Jimmy Neighbour quoted ‘silly goals’ as the Under-17s downfall. They trailed 2-0 before Gyslain Vedeux gave them hope on the hour but Ipswich grabbed a third to put the issue beyond doubt.

Spurs U17s: Burch, Lee, Gardner, Marney, Henry, O’Donoghue (Foster), Hughes, Thomas, Sutton, Vedeux, Galbraith. Unused: Rutherford, Wetner, Slabber, Noto.
