Tottenham Hotspur Ladies celebrated a semi-final hat-trick at the weekend as the reserves maintained their hopes of a double.

Already league champions, the reserves toppled Kent Magpies to reach the final of the Sue Sharples Memorial Cup while the Under-14 Whites beat Enfeld Town to book their place in the Home Counties League Cup.

Meanwhile, Laura Smith (pictured right) bagged a hat-trick as the Under-13s beat St Albans 4-2 to reach the final of the Home Counties League Cup.

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


Tottenham Hotspur U10 Whites 4
Luton Town U10 2

In a highly pulsating game, the U10 Whites came from 2-0 down at the break to secure a vital 4-2 victory over Luton Town Belles in the HCFGL on Saturday.

Hannah Fenton-Burgess and captain Emma Lee both bagged two goals apiece which leaves three teams still challenging for the title in the closing weeks of the season.

Squad: Kitty Chapman, Jenny Hunnable, Tayla Humm, Natasha Smits, Georgia Sanders, Emma Lee (c), Evie Rose, Isabella Rueben-Crompton, Tia Fogarty, Hannah Fenton-Burgess.

Garston Ladies U10 0
Tottenham Hotspur U10 Blues 5

The Spurs Ladies U10 Blues showed why they have been league leaders since Christmas with an impressive 5-0 victory over an improved Garston side.

It was the Garston goalkeeper and her team who kept the score down, but the Blues passing play proved too much for the Garston girls.

With the first goal coming after five minutes from Chloe Tunnicliffe, the girls had to show patience to use the advantage of the downhill slope in the second half when two goals each from Maya Vio and Tara Sandford wrapped up the victory.

Squad: Jacqueline McLucas, Chantay Watson, Danielle Charles, Tara Sandford (c), Ellis Lunn, Poppy Bennett, Maya Vio, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Shannon Shacklock, Christie Page.

Tottenham Hotspur U11 Blues 12
Barnet Azzuri U11 0

Spurs cruised through to the semi-final of the League Cup with a heavy defeat of a spirited Second Division Barnet Azzuri side.

Tottenham were 5-0 up at the break and despite a staunch rearguard action by the visitors, ran out 12-0 winners with some sparkling football and their goals came from Georgia Miller 5, Phoebe Guiver 2, Abigail Barrett 2, Chloe Smith 2 and Alison Woodward.

Squad: Naomi Coulson, Chloe Smith, Jemma McCarthy, Phoebe Guiver (c), Georgia Miller, Louisa Fox, Loren Humphreys, Alison Woodward, Shannon Eade, Abigail Barrett.


Cheam Rangers U11 0
Tottenham Hotspur U11 Blues 1

Losing striker Georgia Miller with illness just before kick-off was a blow to the Spurs Under-11 Blues, but they went on to win this 11-a-side friendly by a single goal.

Adapting to the larger pitch and the offside rule, the Tottenham side settled down in the second half to take the victory. The goal came when captain Phoebe Guiver fired Louisa Fox’s corner high into the top corner of the net in what was a valuable exercise in preparation for next season.

Squad: Naomi Coulson, Chloe Smith, Jemma McCarthy, Nicole Hall, Phoebe Guiver (c), Morgan Mitchell, Louisa Fox, Loren Humphreys, Alison Woodward, Abigail Barrett.

St. Albans City Youth U13 2
Tottenham Hotspur U13 4

A see-saw first half saw the lead change hands before Tottenham took control to go through to a League Cup Final against QPR.

St. Albans went ahead before Laura Smith levelled and then gave Spurs the lead, with the home side pegging Tottenham back once more. With a handball in the area, Spurs had the opportunity to go into the interval 3-2 ahead and Smith’s cool spot-kick ensured the lead was in the Lilywhites’ favour.

While the Tottenham defence held City Youth’s attacks away from their goal, there was still time in the second half for Rosie Kmita to fire a high shot over the St. Albans keeper to make the final score 4-2.

Squad: Daisy O’Sullivan, Shianne St. Louis (c), Rosie Kmita, Molly Kmita, Olivia Keown, Harley Keenlyside, Katie Mills, Hannah Lyons, Ayse Mustafa, Renata Inniss, Taylor O’Leary, Georgia Bruce, Charlotte Dean, Nikki Hunnable, Whitney Tango, Laura Smith.

Tottenham Hotspur U14 Whites 4
Enfield Town Ladies U14 0

With a fine passing performance under tricky pitch conditions, Spurs beat a determined but under-strength Enfield Town Ladies team.

With a fierce drive from Chloe Gunn, Tottenham had a 17th minute lead, which was doubled in the 34th minute, when Rhiannon Kelly’s low cross was neatly turned into the net by Leasha Ngotho.

As the hot sun blazed down, Spurs kept Enfield at bay and Gunn and Kelly added further goals to earn the girls a League Cup final place against Luton Town.

Squad: Sian Osmond, Jodie Fenn, Paige Barnard, Zoë Jackson (c), Lucky Di Biasio, Andrea Edobor, Chloe Gunn, Lindsey Cockle, Leasha Ngotho, Tarn Harris, Tessa Osborne, Katie Goodland, Vanessa Hassans, Rhiannon Kelly.

Tottenham Hotspur U14 Blues 4
Harvesters U14 B 1

Harvesters B were the guests at Fred Knights where they faced the Spurs Under-14 Blues and lost 4-1.

A two goal first half burst saw Tottenham take the lead through Ruby Marlow and Becky Shephard, before an unfortunate error saw Harvesters given some hope just before the break.

Into the second half, Spurs secured the three points with second goals from each of the scorers, with Lotty Lovejoy-Crump hitting the post and Jessie Donnelly pulling a great save out of the Harvesters keeper.

Squad: Megan Barsby, Loren Hynes, Rosie Daly, Tayla Goodman (c), Leanne Simmons, Lotty Lovejoy-Crump, Sinead Makins, Becky Shephard, Kirsty Cunoosamy, Chloe Kraemer, Kelly Fenlon, Jessie Donnelly.

Tottenham Hotspur U15 1
Bedwell Rangers U15 3

The Under 15s put up a brave fight before slipping to a 3-1 defeat to Bedwell Rangers in the semi-final of the HCGF League Cup on Sunday.

Spurs applied the pressure in the opening 15 minutes, but Bedwell came back into the game before the break with two quick strikes.

Spurs took the game to Bedwell in the second half, but the majority of attacks were breaking down in the last third.

With two minutes remaining, Bethany Hunter-Scott managed to steal through to give Spurs a late lifeline. However, whilst pushing for the equalizer, Bedwell snatched a third goal in stoppage time.

Squad: Shikiera Richards-Lake, Patrizia Leo, Leesa Shields, Hannah Davies, Joy Dutch, Alex North, Ryah Vyse (c), Sophie Petros, Rebecca Hunneyball, Charlie Newson-Archer, Alex Small, Bethany Brown Hunter Scott, Semma Halil, Natalie Howard.

Kent Magpie Reserves 1
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 5

With a League title in the bag, Spurs Reserves reached the final of the Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy with a 5-1 away win against Kent Magpie Reserves.

Charley Sandford’s brave effort gave Tottenham the lead, which was added to by a Jessie Richards finish to a long ball over the Magpies’ defence. It was almost an action replay for Richards’ second goal and Sandford set up her strike partner’s hat-trick with an unselfish pass.

The Kent side got back into the game with a goal, but captain Gill Blackmore ensured there was to be no further revival as she ended their resistance with a well-taken goal to see Spurs through to the final where they will meet Hackney Women’s Reserves.

Team: Laura May, Dom Clarke, Di Gardiner, Jenny Curtis, Lillie Chapman, Athena Yennaris, Sam Garner, Charley Sandford, Gill Blackmore (c), Jessie Richards, Louise van Hamme (Lizzie De Asha).
