An impressive first day win saw the Spurs Ladies Reserves through to the Second Round of the League Cup with a convincing away win.
Katie Taylor’s sweetly hit shot gave Tottenham the lead and then Kirsty Allen struck a left foot shot into the net to double the lead. A move that started with the Spurs keeper Lacey Amato passed through the team and ended with Fiona Butterfield dinking the ball over the Bushey keeper to make it 3-0 and although the home side got one goal back, Spurs went into the break 4-1 ahead thanks to Taylor’s second goal.
On the hour, the lead was pegged back further, but substitute Hayley Graham (pictured above) drilled home a corner for a debut goal and then Butterfield grabbed her second goal of the game set up by Sam Garner to round off a satisfying 6-2 victory.
