Hampstead U11 A 0
Tottenham Hotspur U11 2
HCGFL - U11 DIVISION 1

Spurs Ladies Under-11s produced a couple of moments of magic to take a 2-0 win back across North London.

With some time being taken to get into their stride, Tottenham kept out Hampstead with a fine save by Dani Charles and just before the break Megan Jones found Ronell Humes, who broke through the home defence to beat the keeper and put Spurs 1-0 ahead at the interval.

Spurs were more determined in the second half, but had to wait equally as late in the half to add to their lead. Jones again created the goal, when she passed to Jacqueline McLucas, who crossed for Ellis Lunn to turn and hit a shot from 18 yards that hit the back of the net to put the match beyond Hampstead's reach.

Squad : - Daniella Charles, Rebecca Mills, Rebecca Lane, Ellis Lunn, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Jacqueline McLucas, Ronell Humes, Charlie-Leigh Dixon, Lauren Howland, Megan Jones.

Tottenham Hotspur U10 Blues 0
Enfield Town U10 1
HCGFL - U10 DIVISION 1

Although this match ended 1-0 to Enfield Town, Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues showed the progress they have made in a short time.

Having lost 7-1 a few weeks ago, this match was a lot closer, although Enfield dominated the first half Tottenham did attempt to hit back at Town's defence.

It was ten minutes into the second half that Enfield managed to score and take a 1-0 advantage. However, Tottenham responded well and had most of the chances, although the final ball was just not accurate enough. When Enfield did break, goalkeeper Lillian Irvine was making some fantastic saves to keep the visitors out, but the game finished 1-0 to the away team in a well-contested match.

Squad : - Charlotte Cummings, Sydney Fairs, Lillian Irvine, Tayla Jackson, Stephanie Kypri, Chloe O'Reilly, Shania Mogridge, Lois Pennington, Isabel Philips, Amelia Shiner, Parris Williams.

Luton Town U12 0
Tottenham Hotspur U12 0
HCGFL - U12 DIVISION 1

A tight game between the top two sides in the division could not produce a goal and Spurs Ladies Under-12s and Luton Town had to settle for a point apiece.

The game got bogged down in the midfield, where the pitch was heaviest and most congested, but Tottenham did create the better chances in the second half, although they were not taken. At the end of the game, both sides had to be happy with a share of the points, with Spurs four points behind the Hatters but with two games in hand.

Squad : - Kitty Chapman, Jenny Hunnable, Natasha Smits, Georgia Sanders, Emma Lee, Evie Rose, Tia Fogarty, Rachel Hands, Maya Vio, Emma Tammaro, Poppy Bennett, Georgia Fairs, Christie Page, Maddie Sollof.

Headstone Manor U13 0
Tottenham Hotspur U13 0
HCGFL - U13 DIVISION 1

Illness robbed Spurs Ladies Under-13s of some key players and also the chance to take three points at Headstone Manor.

With a thawing pitch and a cold chill in the air, the girls put lots of effort in to keep themselves and the supporters warm. The first half was fairly even, with Spurs' best chances falling to Xelia Mendes-Jones, who hit a shot a little too high and Rayian Brown's pacy breaks. Manor had some opportunities, but failed to trouble stand-in keeper Lucy Edwards.

With no substitutes, Spurs battled on with an injury to Jade O'Brien and the defence held firm in the face of some home pressure. Helena Scotland fired a shot in on the Headstone goal, but was denied and the game finished goal-less with a point apiece for the two teams.

Team : - Lucy Edwards, Kathleen Jackson, Melody Jones, Alison Woodward (c), Dot Penders, Xelia Mendes-Jones, Sam Delves, Jade O'Brien, Helena Scotland, Shanai Jackson, Rayian Brown.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 0
Enfield Town 5
FA SOUTH-EAST COMBINATION

Hit by illness, the Tottenham defence were also hit by Enfield Town, who racked up a 5-0 win in the FA South-East Combination.

Patched up and re-structured, the very young Spurs side showed great fight in the closing 20 minutes, but by then the game was lost as Enfield capitalised on their opportunities.

A loose ball from a corner was prodded home to start the scoring, with two more added before the break.

Into the second half, the pattern continued, as Enfield hit their fourth and fifth goals, but Stavroulla Panayiotou drove Spurs ever forward with good determination from right back, but Enfield shut out the Tottenham attacks and closed the game as comfortable winners.

Squad : - Ricole Vyse, Stavroulla Panayiotou, Dom Clarke, Mel Berry (Kirsten Thomson), Ebony Heath, Jenny Curtis (Kerry Daniells), Sam Garner, Nichola Cable, Ryah Vyse (Clare Singh), Jessie Richards, Alex Small. Unused sub : - Hayley Graham.
