The weekend saw progression in the cup competitions for a number of the Spurs Ladies sides, with many victories coming in the face of adversity.

None more so than for the Under-15s, who defeated Petts Wood Ladies 10-0 in the London FA Youth Cup despite having only 10 players!

Katie Fray (picture 1) led the way with four goals, while Sarah Brennan and Laura Newby also hit doubles in the incredible win.

The Under-16 Whites, meanwhile, faced their toughest test of the season so far away at West Ham in the Tesco Cup, but they ran out 2-0 winners in East London.

Shauna Magner and Charlotte Dean were on the scoresheet for Spurs while goalkeeper Angela McGann was in fine form at the other end as the Irons applied the pressure.

It was a slightly more dramatic occasion for the senior Third team in the second round of the Russell Cup (picture 2), but they eventually advanced past AFC Fulham after a penalty shoot-out.

Goalkeeper Chelsea Spurrier (picture 3) was the hero with two saves in the shoot-out after the teams played out a 2-2 draw after extra-time, Ruby Marlow with both Spurs goals.

The Ladies were in just as good league form over the weekend, with another 10-0 romp being produced by the Under-11 Whites at home to Enfield Town B as they maintained their 100% record so far this season. Immy Lancaster hit four and Ronell Humes also netted a hat-trick at the Frederick Knights Sports Ground.

The Under-14s were another of the sides hit by illness and absence over the weekend, but they also managed to turn the tables with a 3-0 home win over Harvesters. Hannah McWilliams, Jodeane Smith (picture 4) and Danni Albertsen were on the scoresheet.

In other games this weekend, Karen Hills' Spurs Ladies First Team continued their unbeaten run in the FA South East Combination, taking it to three matches since a defeat and only one loss in eight games as they drew 1-1 away at Northampton Town.

The Reserves maintained their top spot in the Greater London Regional Women's Football League Division 1 with a 4-1 away win against Camden Town.

Our Under-12 side won 3-0 at home against Hampstead in the HCGFL with Ellis Lunn scoring twice and the Under-13 side lost 3-1 away at St. Martins in the Home Counties Under-13 Cup Group B game.

The Under-10s suffered differing fortunes in their League Cup group games. The Whites won 10-0 at home against Denham United in Group B, while the Blues lost out 4-1 at Hampstead in Group A.

And the Under-11 Blues also found themselves on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline at home to second placed Enfield Town A in the HCGFL.
