Jenny Hunnable's 25-yarder took Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U11s into the League Cup Final.

Here are all the latest reports with thanks, as always, to Wyart Lane...

SATURDAY APRIL 19

Luton Town U11 0
Tottenham Hotspur U11 Whites 1
HCGFL – U11 CUP SEMI-FINAL

Spurs Ladies Under-11s reached the League Cup final for the second year running with the tightest of 1-0 victories of Luton Town Belles on Saturday.

Luton started the brighter of the two teams and if it wasn’t for several fine saves by Kitty Chapman in the opening 15 minutes, Spurs could have been two or three goals down. Spurs then started to gain some composure and took the lead after 18 minutes with a wonder strike from 25 yards out from Jenny Hunnable (pictured).

In the second half, Luton were awarded a penalty, which, fortunately for Spurs, was put wide of the post. The rest of the game saw Spurs defend well and counter attack swiftly on the break to take them through to the final against local rivals Enfield Town Ladies.

Squad : - Kitty Chapman, Jenny Hunnable, Natasha Smits, Georgia Sanders, Emma Lee, Evie Rose, Isabella Rueben-Crompton, Tia Fogarty, Hannah Fenton-Burgess, Rachel Hands.

SUNDAY APRIL 20

Tottenham Hotspur U16 2
Enfield Town Ladies U16 4
HCGFL– U16 DIVISION 1

The THLFC Under-16s met Enfield Town on Sunday for the first of three fixtures against them in an eleven day period.

Enfield had the territorial advantage in the early stages and went head after 10 minutes, but Spurs battled back and after some neat interchange play, Becky Shepherd slotted home a powerful left footed drive from the edge of the area in the 20th minute.

With Tottenham always a threat from set pieces, a long free kick from Leesa Shields saw Spurs go ahead just after the break.

In the second half Enfield came back strong and drew level midway through the half. With seven minutes to go, Spurs got caught flatfooted at the back and Enfield regained the lead. Whilst attempting to push forward for the equaliser, Enfield grabbed a fourth.

Squad : - Ricole Vyse, Leesa Shields, Victoria Matthews, Alex North, Charlie Newson-Archer, Ryah Vyse (c), Jay Morgan, Rebecca Hunneyball, Stavroulla Panayiotou, Alex Small, Becky Shephard, Natalie Howard.

Garston Ladies Reserves 2
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 2
GLRWFL – DIVISION 2 NORTH

A depleted Spurs side were denied a win for the second week courtesy of a cruel twist of fate, but had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Garston Reserves.

An early Spurs goal started with Mary Griffiths’ perceptive pass finding Sam Garner on the wing and having beaten her marker, she pulled it back for Natalie Arbuckle to sweep home. However, five minutes before the break Garston equaliser with a goal from a corner.

The second half saw stand-in keeper Chanel Breen make two vital saves, while Hayley Graham and Fiona Butterfield linked to create a second goal for Arbuckle just seven minutes from time. But typical of the Reserves’ luck, a player standing off-side was allowed to continue on to hit an equaliser in the 88th minute, thus earning Garston a point which will keep them in the division next season.

Team : - Fiona Butterfield, Ebony Heath, Mary Griffiths, Louise van Hamme (c), Hannah Charman, Hayley Graham, Laura Allen, Sam Garner, Sarah Mair (Katie Taylor), Natalie Arbuckle, Chanel Breen.

Woking Ladies 0
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 4
LONDON & SOUTH-EAST WOMEN’S REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION

A move into second place in the table for the Spurs Ladies First team might come at a good time with just three games left.

Jenny Curtis started the move that lead to the opening goal, passing the ball to Jessie Richards, who squared for Rosi Webb to finish neatly. Webb played a part in the build-up for the second goal, with Samrawit Bereket taking the ball on and providing the chance for Richards to double the advantage just after the break.

Bereket notched the third with a powerful shot from a quickly taken Kat Clifton free-kick and despite the team being disrupted by a couple of injuries, they went on to make it 4-0 in the closing stages, when substitute Faye Callaway fired home Gill Blackmore’s pass to complete a vital three point win for Spurs.

Squad : - Lacey Amato, Dom Clarke, Kelly Herrett (Kerry Daniells), Athena Yennaris (Gill Blackmore), Jenny Curtis, Clare Singh, Kat Clifton, Mel Berry, Samrawit Bereket, Jessie Richards, Rosi Webb (Faye Callaway).
