Lily-Anna Tyrimos produced some brave keeping stopping London Girls equalising, with Ruth Collett narrowly missing an opportunity at the other end.

All this came after a stalemate of a first half, when both sides cancelled each other out, but Tottenham Hotspur were happy to hold onto their lead in a well-contested final to lift the trophy.

Spurs were pushed hard in the first half by a very hard working Hitchin side and went into the break 1-0 up through a goal from Hanna Fenton Burgess.

In the second half, Spurs got more into their stride and Tia Fogarty was back to some sparkling form with a well taken hat-trick.

The Spurs defence continues to be in fine form with the combination of Tasha Smits and Jenny Hunnable in great form in preserving clean sheets throughout this season so far.

The second half saw Spurs pass the ball around and scored further goals through Louisa Fox and Guiver to see them through to the next stage of the competition.

Spurs Ladies U13 came away with a win on an afternoon of blustery winds against St Albans City Youth U13 at Greenwood Park.

The first Spurs goal came in the 30th minute of the game from striker Whitney Tango, as the defence held up St Albans’ attacks at the other end.

The second half saw Tottenham make lighter weather of the conditions and score in the twentieth minute, as Renata Inniss received the ball from Hannah Lyons outside the18 yard box where she dribbled through two defenders to score Spurs' second goal. Nikki Hunnable and Taylor O’Leary brought saves from the St Albans keeper before Whitney Tango collected the ball in midfield outside the 18 yard box, turned her opponent and netted her second and Spurs third after 32 minutes of the second half.

Two minutes later Nikki Hunnable delicately tapped the ball into the St Albans net with her left foot for a 4-0 score-line that keeps Spurs in contention at the top of the table.

Tottenham Hotspur U14 Blues 3
HCGFL – U14 DIVISION 1

Spurs played with a positive attitude from the kick off in horrid weather conditions that stopped the game for five minutes near the end of the first half, but they kept Bushey at bay with good defensive play and the first half finished 0-0.

The sun came out for the second half and with it came the goals, with Becky Shephard scoring in the 48th and 58th minutes and having another shot at goal in the 63rd that was knocked in by a Bushey player for a own goal and for Spurs to run out 3-0 winners.

Luton Town U15 3
Tottenham Hotspur U15 3
HCGFL CUP – GROUP C

After a heavy defeat away in the corresponding league fixture, the Under 15s had a point to prove when they hosted Luton Town Belles in the HCGFL on Sunday.

In blustery conditions, it took until the 29th minute for a goal, when a through ball saw Alex Small race away to put Spurs ahead, but, within five minutes, Luton had levelled.

The opening exchanges on the second half, some good passing saw Luton go ahead for the first time.

Spurs to their credit battled and Sophie Petros slipped the ball home to draw the score levels after 60 minutes and after a goalmouth melee the ball came loose for Stavroulla Panayiotou to crack home a shot into the top corner of the next to put Spurs 3-2 in the 65th minute.

Long Lane Reserves 3
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 3
SUE SHARPLES MEMORIAL CUP – GROUP A

In terrible conditions Spurs travelled to South London to meet Long Lane Reserves in the final group match of the first stage of the Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy.

Two early Long Lane rocked Spurs, who had to play against the wind.

In the second half, Long Lane hit a free kick deep from outside the area which eluded substitute keeper Lisa McCabe.

As the snow started falling, Tottenham ladies dug deep and got their first goal of the game from top scorer Jessie Richards. Realising the game was still up for grabs, Dom Clarke played in the scorer, whose shot was fumbled and Charley Sandford was well placed to knock it in and make the score 2-3.

A blatant hand ball was denied by the ref, but the equaliser came from Jessie Richards with a neat bit of finishing. Attacking to the end, the fourth goal which just would not come and Spurs Ladies will be hoping they have done enough to progress to the semi-finals.

Team : - Laura May (Lisa McCabe), Dom Clarke, Di Gardiner, Athena Yennaris, Hannah Charman, Lillie Chapman, Lizzie De Asha, Sam Garner, Gill Blackmore (c), Charley Sandford, Jessie Richards.

THURSDAY MARCH 8

Enfield Town Ladies U10 0
Tottenham Hotspur U10 Whites 5
HCGFL – U10 DIVISION 1

With a massive backlog of fixtures, the U10 Whites met Enfield Town in the league under floodlights at the New River Sports Centre on Thursday evening.

With a crowd of nearly 100 watching, both sides played some smashing football. However, Spurs were the more dominant force going forward and put the game out of Enfield’s reach through goals from Tia Fogarty, Hannah Fenton Burgess, Isabella Rueben-Crompton and two from captain Emma Lee to seal a 5-0 victory.

Squad : - Kitty Chapman, Jenny Hunnable, Natasha Smits, Tayla Humm, Georgia Sanders, Emma Lee (c), Evie Rose, Isabella Rueben-Crompton, Tia Fogarty, Hannah Fenton-Burgess.

SATURDAY MARCH 10

Watford Ladies U11 0
Tottenham Hotspur U11 Blues 1
HCGFL – DIVISION 1

Spurs won this away match against Watford Ladies by a narrow margin after giving an exhibition display in the first half.

The visitors had most of the play and it was more than 10 minutes before goalie Naomi Coulson touched the ball. Spurs peppered the opposing goal with shots, with Louisa Fox in particular keeping the ball down well and going close on several occasions. Captain Phoebe Guiver was also active near the penalty area as was Georgia Miller, foraging effectively down the left wing.

All this pressure was bound to pay off. The goal came from a well co-ordinated move down the right wing - a throw-in, a quick pass to Chloe Smith who centred, despite defensive attention, and Georgia was there to put the ball in the net. There was more good football to come with Alison Woodward distributing the ball accurately - barely a wasted pass in all the half; Chloe running down the right side and the attackers pushing the skills of the Watford keeper to her limit. One–nil at half time, after some of the best football played all season by Spurs.

The second half was a bit more equal. Spurs still had the majority of the play, winning a corner tally of 12 to 3. Abigail Barrett and Shannon Eade came on, testing the home defence, while at the other end, Gemma McCarthy and Loren Humphreys were usually in control. Watford rallied and did have a few chances but Naomi kept a clean sheet. There were lots of near misses, inspired by passes forward by Phoebe and Jemma, with Shannon Eade and Abbie Barrett being unlucky with shots.

Squad : - Naomi Coulson, Chloe Smith, Jemma McCarthy, Phoebe Guiver (c), Georgia Miller, Louisa Fox, Loren Humphreys, Alison Woodward, Shannon Eade, Abigail Barrett.

SUNDAY MARCH 11

Hitchin Town Belles U13 0
Tottenham Hotspur U13 9
HCGFL U13 CUP – ROUND 2

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U13s were slowly out of their starting blocks, they eventually broke the dead lock against Hitchin Town Belles with two goals from Hannah Lyons in the 20th and 25th minutes before going on to a comfortable League Cup win.

Rosie Kmita increased the lead to 3-0, but it was in the second half that a goal rush occurred. A hat-trick from Renata Inniss, two goals from Whitney Tango and another from Taylor O’Leary gave Spurs Ladies a good run out as they progressed through to the Third Round.

Squad : - Shianne St. Louis (c), Rosie Kmita, Olivia Keown, Harley Keenlyside, Katie Mills, Hannah Lyons, Ayse Mustafa, Renata Inniss, Taylor O’Leary, Georgia Bruce, Charlotte Dean, Nikki Hunnable, Whitney Tango.

Bushey Rangers U14 3
Tottenham Hotspur U14 Blues 1
HCGFL U14 CUP - ROUND 1

Spurs suffered their first defeat in four games as they were knocked out of the League Cup at the hands of Bushey Rangers.

Getting off to a very slow start, with Bushy scoring three goals in the first half.

The second half started a lot better and in the 40th minute Becky got a goal back. The defence kept Bushy at bay for the rest of the game and with Jessie Donnelly having a goal dis-allowed and a few good shots from Kirsty Cunoosamy, Ruby Marlow and Rosie Daly narrowly missing the net, they were very unlucky not to have pulled the game back.

Squad : - Megan Barsby, Loren Hynes, Rosie Daly, Tayla Goodman (c), Leanne Simmons, Sinead Makins, Becky Shephard, Kirsty Cunoosamy, Chloe Kraemer, Jessie Donnelly

Denham United U15 0
Tottenham Hotspur U15 2
HCGFL U15 CUP – QUARTER FINAL

The Under 15s progressed through to the semi-final of the HCGFL League Cup with a 2-0 win at Denham United Ladies.

With the game being played on a heavy surface and in blustery conditions, it was never going to be a classic. Throughout the first half, Spurs, playing with the wind, had much of the pressure but over complicated the play around the edge of the Denham area saw many a good attack break down.

In the second half, Spurs settled better and took the lead in the 55th minute when Rebecca Hunneyball poked the ball home following a goalmouth melee. Denham came back in the game in the closing stages and keeper Ricole Vyse confidently swept up several attacks.

In time added on, Charlie Archer drilled the ball low past the keeper to seal the result. Spurs are now at home to Bedwell in the semi final.

Squad : - Ricole Vyse, Patrizia Leo, Leesa Shields, Shikiera Richards-Lake, Joy Dutch, Alex North, Ryah Vyse (c), Sophie Petros, Rebecca Hunneyball, Charlie Newson-Archer, Stavroulla Panayiotou, Alex Small, Bethany Brown Hunter Scott.
