Tottenham Hotspur U11 Whites 1
Tottenham Hotspur U11 Blues 2

A matter of honour turned this match between the two Spurs Under-11 sides into a tightly-fought battle.

Both sides showed their desire to come out with the points, with the Whites taking first blood with an early goal and Namoi Coulson was called upon to save a Whites penalty to keep the score down. Although they held onto the lead into the second half, Alison Woodward’s deflected shot got the Blues back on terms.

This left the stage clear for Georgia Miller to finish the match with the winning goal when she showed her poacher’s instincts by scoring the Blues 100th league goal of the season following a goalmouth scramble to keep them top of the league.

Whites Squad: Lauren Holman, Rhiannon Bassett, Carly Mackey, Kayla Miles, Kathleen Jackson, Nicole Hall (c), Monique Thompson, Louise Waldock, Charlotte Chaloner.

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


Hendon Reserves 1
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 5

A sloppy start by Spurs Ladies did not hinder their Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy campaign as they went on to win 5-1.

Jessie Richards finally finished off one of a number of chances as Spurs eventually got their game together. Hannah Charman scored a fiercely-struck shot after a corner was cleared to make it 2-0, which soon became three as Jessie Richards clinically scored from Gill Blackmore’s through pass.

Hendon fought back with a goal after the interval, but another goal made it 4-1 to Spurs and the hat-trick was completed as the fifth Spurs goal hit the back of the net from the boot of Jessie Richards.

Team: Laura May, Dom Clarke (Louise van Hamme), Di Gardiner, Jenny Curtis, Athena Yennaris, Lillie Chapman, Sam Garner (Andrea Walkes), Hannah Charman, Gill Blackmore (c), Jessie Richards, Faye Callaway. Unused subs. : - Charley Sandford, Beth Richards.

Gravesend & Northfleet Ladies 1
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 0

While the game went ahead, Spurs Ladies were hampered by the heavy conditions and slipped to a single goal defeat at the hands of Gravesend.

Tottenham had a lot of possession, but failed to show composure when chances presented themselves, leaving a lack of concentration at the back to allow Gravesend in for a goal ten minutes before the break.

It proved to be the decider in the game, but the second half was similar to the first, as Spurs pushed forward, but could not score.

Squad: Lacey Amato, Carly Snell, Mary Griffiths, Kelly Herrett (c), Mel Berry, Chanel Breen, Kathleen Clifton, Rosi Webb (Lisa McCabe), Claire Singh (Jade Perrin), Shadine Mars, Ebony Heath (Katie Taylor).


Tottenham Hotspur U10 Whites 3
Stotfold U10 0

The Under 10 Whites kept up the pressure at the top of the league with a very good win over a tenacious Stotfold side that gave Spurs plenty of problems.

Tia Fogarty opened the scoring after for minutes when she finished well after good build up play and the hard working Hannah Fenton-Burgess was rewarded with two goals in the closing four minutes following a period of Spurs pressure.

The Spurs defence were again excellent throughout with new signing Tayla Humm putting in a solid performance at right back and Jenny Hunnable showing a cool head at all times.

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

Tottenham Hotspur U10 Blues 4
Hitchin Town Belles U10 Whites 1

The Under 10 Whites stay top of the table with an impressive 4-1 win over Hitchin Town Belles.

A loose ball was struck first time past the keeper by Rachel Brier to give Spurs the lead, with captain Tara Sandford making it 2-0 on seven minutes with a shot from just inside the penalty area. Midfielder Christie Page got a well deserved goal, taking the score to 3-0 on ten minutes with another drive from just outside the box.

Spurs were 4-0 up in the third minute of the second half, when, from a Poppy Bennett corner, Sandford fed substitute Maya Vio to score.

Tottenham did not have it all their own way and succumbed to a Hitchin counter attack and which left the final score at 4-1.

Squad: Jacqueline McLucas, Chantay Watson, Danielle Charles, Tara Sandford (c), Ellis Lunn, Rachel Brier, Poppy Bennett, Maya Vio, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Shannon Shacklock, Christie Page.


QPR U13 5
Tottenham Hotspur U13 1

A top of the table clash with QPR ended in an unaccustomed defeat for the Lilywhites.

QPR exploited a leaky Spurs defence with some quick bursts with their attackers and scored two goals in 15 minutes.

Spurs Ladies did not play with their normal zest, but managed to string together some passes. In the thirtieth minute, Whitney Tango shot at goal from outside the 18-yard box where the goalkeeper deliberately handled the ball. The referee only issued a warning to the QPR keeper and awarded a free kick that Nikki Hunnable had saved. Daisy O’Sullivan made some good saves to keep the score down to 2-0 at the half time whistle.

Just after half-time Katie Mills delivered the perfect ball to Whitney Tango, who made the score 2-1. But that was as close as Spurs got with QPR going further ahead in the 25th minute and then adding another two goals before the end for a 5-1 victory.

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

Tottenham Hotspur U14 Blues 1
Watford Ladies U14 0

A hard-fought game for the Tottenham Ladies U14 Blues saw them edge the victory with the only goal of the game.

A looping shot from 20 yards out in the 19th minute from striker Becky Shephard gave Spurs the lead, which they defended doggedly.

As Watford launched attacks on the home goal, goalkeeper Megan Barsby was called upon to turn in a player of the match performance to keep a clean sheet and earn a richly deserved three points.

Squad: Megan Barsby, Loren Hynes, Rosie Daly, Tayla Goodman, Leanne Simmons, Lotty Lovejoy-Crump, Sinead Makins, Becky Shephard, Kirsty Cunoosamy, Chloe Kraemer, Kelly Fenlon, Ruby Marlow, Jessie Donnelly.

Tottenham Hotspur U15 0
Enfield Town Ladies U15 6

An under-strength Under 15s side slumped to a 6-0 home defeat to Enfield Town Ladies FC in the HCGFL on Sunday.

In a fast paced, strong physical game, Spurs battled hard to keep in contention in the first half and went in at the break only 2-0 down.

In the second half, Spurs conceded a third goal within the opening ten minutes and despite continuing to battle hard conceded another three goals in the closing 15 minutes.

Squad: Ricole Vyse, Leesa Shields, Patrizia Leo, Joy Dutch, Alex North, Ryah Vyse (c), Sophie Petros, Rebecca Hunneyball, Charlie Newson-Archer, Stavroulla Panayiotou, Semma Halil, Natalie Howard.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 5
QPR Reserves 3

Spurs got back in the race for a top spot in the group stage of the Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy with a 5-3 win over QPR Reserves at Fred Knights.

Spurs took the lead when Di Gardiner knocked the ball forward for Faye Callaway, to lob the Rangers keeper and then a good pass from Sam Garner played in the same striker who finished well to make it 2-0. A third goal followed before the break, when Callaway's shot was fumbled by the keeper leaving Garner the opportunity to knock it into the back of the net.

The second half was always going to be tough and QPR broke through the middle to peg Spurs back at 3-1. However, Andrea Walkes controlled a difficult ball and flicked it onto Callaway, whose shot was blocked, but she got to the rebound first to fire home her hat-trick goal.

Spurs were still not safe, with QPR hitting back to make it 4-2, but when Andrea Walkes was felled in the area, she got up to take the spot-kick only to see her shot hit the bar, but Gill Blackmore was on hand to convert the loose ball to put Tottenham 5-2 ahead.

The game was not dead as QPR forged forward to fire past an injured Laura May making the final score 5-3 in an exciting match.

Team: Laura May, Dom Clarke, Di Gardiner, Jenny Curtis, Athena Yennaris, Lizzie De Asha (Louise van Hamme), Sam Garner (Beth Richards), Hannah Charman, Gill Blackmore (c), Andrea Walkes, Faye Callaway
