Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 4
Acton Sports Club 1
LONDON & SOUTH-EAST WOMEN’S REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION
The Spurs Ladies first team moved into second place with a convincing 4-1 victory over Acton Sports Club.
Kat Clifton put Spurs ahead from the penalty spot after Samrawit Bereket’s burst into the box was halted by an Acton defender. Shortly afterwards, Jessie Richards finished off a neat pass from Faye Callaway (pictured) with low shot to the keeper’s left to double the lead and it was three before the break, when Bereket struck at the end of a pacy run.
Into the second half, some good pressure from Callaway and Richards forced a mistake and Clare Singh was on hand to slot the ball into an empty net. However, Acton were not going to lose without some resistance and scored from a wind-assisted corner kick and only missed out on reducing the gap further when they missed a penalty and were denied by two fine saves by keeper Lacey Amato.
With four games left, the prospect of promotion is there for the team if they can continue their good form.
Team : - Lacey Amato, Dom Clarke, Kelly Herrett, Athena Yennaris, Jenny Curtis (Kerry Daniells), Kat Clifton, Gill Blackmore, Samrawit Bereket, Claire Singh, Jessie Richards, Faye Callaway (Hannah Charman).
Unused sub. : - Ebony Heath

Tottenham Hotspur U11 Whites 5
Luton Town U11 1
HCGFL – U11 DIVISION 1
When Luton Town and Spurs get together in this division, you know that you’re going to get an open game of attacking football, and it was Spurs who came out 5-1 winners.
Spurs gained an early grasp on the midfield zone through Isabella Rueben-Crompton and Emma Lee and neutralized Luton’s attacking force bar the final ten minutes.
Rueben-Crompton was the star of the show with two great goals and a further assist in Rachel Hands' goal. Tia Fogarty continued her rich vein of scoring with another two goals.
A great team performance by the Spurs against a Luton side that didn’t fire on all cylinders on this occasion, but will chase Spurs right to the end of the season for the U11 Championship.
Squad : - Kitty Chapman, Jenny Hunnable, Natasha Smits, Georgia Sanders, Emma Lee, Evie Rose, Isabella Rueben-Crompton, Tia Fogarty, Hannah Fenton-Burgess, Rachel Hands,

Tottenham Hotspur U12 Blues 8
Hemel Hempstead Girls U12 0
HCGFL – U12 DIVISION 1
Another fine performance by the THLFC Under-12 Blues maintains their place at the top of the league table.
The latest side to meet the Blues in expert passing form was Hemel Hempstead, who were soon 2-0 down through a Louisa Fox goal and a neat control and shot from Georgia Miller. Spurs pressed home their advantage to be 5-0 ahead at the break, with further goals from Amy Runciman 2 and Fox.
The weather was atrocious in the second half, but the game was lit up by Tottenham’s play and they completed an 8-0 victory with Fox’s hat-trick goal, Chloe Smith’s clever finish and the first goal for the club by new signing Charlee Vaz.
Squad : - Naomi Coulson, Sam Delves, Jemma McCarthy, Monique Thompson, Alison Woodward, Phoebe Guiver (c), Louisa Fox, Amy Runciman, Tayla Smith, Georgia Miller, Chloe Smith.
Tottenham Hotspur U13 3
Cambridge City U13 0
With Cambridge City already having won their league and Spurs U13s having a free weekend, it was a good opportunity to pit their wits against each other in a friendly.
City had not been beaten in two years and Spurs were on a great run, so it was set to be a close match, with Cambridge pushing Spurs back into defence in the early stages. But the back four held tight and Tottenham started to move forward.
Substitute Amy Woff hit two goals, the second a screamer from Tori Tripp’s cross, before the break and then completed her hat-trick after the interval to seal a satisfying win that tested Spurs and gave Cambridge a tougher game than they have been sued to.
Squad : - Lily-Anna Tyrimos, Hollie Watson, Shoshana Field, Rebecca Dowling, Alexa Rangecroft, Jade Finch, Tori Tripp, Charlotte McLucas, Saskia Collins, Vicki Blake, Tianna Carrington, Laura Newby, Bobbi Cubberley, Amy Woff
Tottenham Hotspur U16 3
Southend United U16 2
(After extra time : score 2-2 at full-time)
HCGFL– U16 CUP QUARTER FINAL
The Spurs Ladies Under-16s progressed into the last four of the League Cup on Sunday with a 3-2 after extra time victory against Southend United FC.
Spurs were unable to break down a stubborn Southend United defence until Shikiera Lake-Richards struck home through a series of bodies after 32 minutes to give Spurs a 1-0 half time lead.
In the second half, a 55th minute Spurs free-kick found Charlie Archer at the far post to put Spurs 2-0 up. Within five minutes, Southend won a penalty kick for handball, but Ricole Vyse kept her calm as the kick was hit straight down the middle to her.
Spurs continued to be up against a Southend onslaught in the closing stages and Southend moved back to within one goal when Spurs got caught in possession on their left. With time ticking down, another well taken Southend corner saw them level to take the tie into extra time.
In the first period of extra time, another corner from Becky Shepherd saw Leesa Shields convert from close in to make it 3-2 Spurs. The remainder of the game saw some heroic defending by Spurs with Southend going so close to taking the ties to penalties but Spurs held onto a memorable victory.
Squad : - Ricole Vyse, Patrizia Leo, Leesa Shields, Shikiera Richards-Lake, Jay Morgan, Alex North, Ryah Vyse (c), Rebecca Hunneyball, Charlie Newson-Archer, Alex Small, Becky Shephard, Natalie Howard, Victoria Matthews
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies moved up to second in the London SE Regional League after beating Acton 4-1 on Sunday.
