Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Under-15s White toppled league leaders Kidlington in the 1st round of the Home Counties Girls League U15 Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Under-15s White toppled league leaders Kidlington in the 1st round of the Home Counties Girls League U15 Cup.

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

SUNDAY JANUARY 13

Kidlington Youth U15 3
Tottenham Hotspur U15 Whites 4
HCGFL – U15 CUP – FIRST ROUND

Spurs Ladies Under-15 Whites travelled to take on top of the league Kidlington Youth in the first round of the HCGF League Cup and emerged with a 4-3 wind-assisted win.

Tottenham had the advantage of a very strong wind in the first half and after 25 minutes Spurs took the lead, when Leasha Ngotho hoisted a ball into the area, only to see it bounce into the net. Two minutes later it was 2-0, when Chloe Gunn found space and from 25 yards out unleashed an unstoppable shot.

Spurs were enjoying a good spell that saw them hit the woodwork twice before getting a third before the break. Captain Zoe Jackson's clearance from the halfway line deceived the keeper and bounced into an empty net.

Kidlington scored relatively quickly after half time when some indecision in the defence allowed a striker a clear shot but capitalising on the home defence pushing up, Vanessa Hassan (pictured right) was able to steal in to put Spurs 4-1 up.

Two late Kidlington goals made it a nervy ending, with a shot hit over the top when it seemed easier to score with just a minute to go, seeing the home side failing to take the game to extra time.

Squad: Sian Osmond, Jodie Fenn, Zoë Jackson (c), Lucky Di Biasio, Tessa Osborne, Andrea Edobor, Chloe Gunn, Leasha Ngotho, Tarn Harris (Lindsey Cockle), Bethany Brown Hunter Scott (Aimee Rose), Rhiannon Kelly (Vanessa Hassan).

SATURDAY JANUARY 12

Tottenham Hotspur U11 Whites 6
Hitchin Town Belles U11 0
HCGFL – U11 DIVISION 1 (Played at Hitchin)

With the Frederick Knights Sports Ground being totally waterlogged, Hitchin Town Belles offered to host this fixture at very short notice.

Spurs continued their form of recent weeks and in the 10th minute, Rachel Hands put them ahead with a well driven shot from just outside the area. Just before the break, some neat build up play saw captain Emma Lee strike a low shot past the Hitchin goalkeeper.

The second half belonged largely to Tia Fogarty whose determined running saw her bag a well earned hat-trick, with the other Spurs goal being scored by Hannah Fenton-Burgess.

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

SUNDAY JANUARY 13

Luton Town U13 1
Tottenham Hotspur U13 3
HCGFL – U13 DIVISION 1

The only cloud for Spurs Ladies Under-13s was a late penalty scored against them, as they dominated a 3-1 win over Luton Town in the HCGFL.

Good control and an instant second minute finish by Laura Newby gave Spurs the early initiative and then the striker added a second with a stunning volley the same distance into the second half.

As Tottenham controlled the game with great poise, Newby snaffled her hat-trick goal, seizing on a half-blocked shot to put the points beyond Luton’s grasp.

However, a late penalty saw the Hatters rally, but it could not stop the girls racking up their 11th consecutive victory as their season gathers momentum.

Squad: Lily-Anna Tyrimos, Hollie Watson, Shoshana Field, Rebecca Dowling, Alexa Rangecroft, Jade Finch, Tori Tripp, Lydia Maher, Blerta Berisha, Saskia Collins, Vicki Blake, Tianna Carrington, Laura Newby, Bobbi Cubberley, Nina Pontes.

Cambridge City U16 7
Tottenham Hotspur U15 0
HCGFL– U15 CUP FIRST ROUND

The Under-15 Blues faced a tough task against one of the front-runners in the league and so it proved as Cambridge City knocked them out of the Cup at the first hurdle.

Tottenham were hampered by the absence of usual keeper Megan Barsby with illness, but Tayla Goodman did a good job in goal, with the defence battling hard to protect her.

In the end, the gap in ability told and the home side ran out 7-0 winners.

Squad: Tayla Goodman, Loren Hynes, Rosie Daly, Olivia Keown, Leanne Simmons, Sinead Makins, Kirsty Cunoosamy, Chloe Kraemer, Jessie Donnelly, Ebony Clarke, Georgina Robertson, Eleftheria Taladianou, Ruby Marlow.

SATURDAY JANUARY 5

Tottenham Hotspur U10 3
Enfield Town U10 B 0
HCGFL – U10 DIVISION 1

A well honed passing performance saw Tottenham win against Enfield in a tight HCGFL game.

Renee Lamy was sharp in goal to stop the early Enfield attacks, but it was skipper Chloe Tunnicliffe who opened the scoring on 15 minutes with an accurate shot. Spurs quickly capitalized and went 2-0 ahead as Ronell Humes slotted home through the keeper’s legs.

With the momentum going their way, Tottenham took a 3-0 lead as Ellis Lunn lofted the ball over the keeper’s head. Although the second half saw Spurs press forward and create more chances, there was no addition to the score and the three points were secure.

Squad: Renee Lamy, Jacqueline McLucas, Ronelle Humes, Megan Jones, Ellis Lunn, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Alice Simmonds, Rebecca Mills, Alice Simmonds, Molly Bassett.

SUNDAY JANUARY 6

Tottenham Hotspur U12 Blues 13
Harpenden U12 Blues 1
HCGFL – U12 DIVISION 1

The Under-12 Blues took another big step forward in the HCGFL U12 Cup, although they conceded for the first time in the competition as they recorded a 13-1 win over Harpenden Blues.

9-0 up at half-time, Spurs found a more determined Harpenden side in the second period and could only hit the net on four more occasions.

Jess Johnson started the goal-scoring and finished the game with four goals. Chloe Smith, Phoebe Guiver and Amy Runciman hit two each, while Hannah Mills, Louisa Fox and an own goal completed the comprehensive victory for Tottenham.

Squad: Naomi Coulson, Sam Delves, Jemma McCarthy, Monique Thompson, Phoebe Guiver (c), Hannah Mills, Alison Woodward, Amy Runciman, Jess Johnson, Georgia Miller, Louisa Fox, Chloe Smith.

Barnet Azzuri U13 0
Tottenham Hotspur U13 15
HCGFL – U13 DIVISION 1

A change of venue obviously suited the Spurs Ladies Under-13s, as they hosted Barnet Azzuri and won 15-0 in the HCGFL U13 Cup.

Laura Newby opened the scoring after 17 seconds, but Blerta Berisha lead the way with five goals and fellow striker Nina Pontes grabbing a hat-trick. Spurs dominated the game, with the defence rarely troubled and they ran out winners in double figures for the second game running, as Bobbi Cubberley, a second from Newby, two from Lydia Maher, Alexa Rangecroft and an own goal took the score to 15-0.

Squad: Hollie Watson, Shoshana Field, Rebecca Dowling, Alexa Rangecroft, Tori Tripp, Lydia Maher, Charlotte McLucas, Blerta Berisha, Saskia Collins, Vicki Blake, Tianna Carrington, Laura Newby, Bobbi Cubberley, Nina Pontes. Amy Woff.

Tottenham Hotspur U14 10
St. Albans City U14 0
HCGFL – U14 DIVISION 1

Renata Inniss helped herself to a double hat-trick as Spurs Ladies Under-14s hit peak form against St. Albans City in the HCGFL.

A scorching volley and a neat finish by Inniss gave Spurs the initiative, with Nikki Hunnable adding a third before half-time.

It was in the second half that Tottenham unleashed their firepower on the unfortunate St. Albans City side, which had to meet the girls in great scoring form. Four more goals came from the boots of Inniss, while both Rosie and Molly Kmita scored, with Siobhan Jones beating the home keeper in the last minute to finish the scoring for Tottenham.

Squad: Daisy O’Sullivan, Shianne St. Louis, Rosie Kmita, Molly Kmita, Harley Keenlyside, Katie Mills, Hannah Lyons, Ayse Mustafa, Renata Inniss, Taylor O’Leary, Sarah Skipper, Siobhan Jones, Charlotte Dean, Nikki Hunnable, Laura Smith.

Tottenham Hotspur U15 Whites 5
Luton Town Hatters U15 0
HCGFL – U15 DIVISION 1

A slow start to 2008 saw Spurs Ladies U15 Whites have to defend against Luton Town Hatters before producing a good second half to win the match.

Striker Tarn Harris netted in the first half, but after the interval, the team stepped up a gear to produce a number of good chances. Harris completed her hat-trick with two fine finishes before Andrea Edobor hit a trademark rocket shot into the net and Aimee Rose showed her predatory instincts with a close range finish for her first goal since re-signing with THLFC to seal the 5-0 win.

Squad: Sian Osmond, Katie Goodland (Aimee Rose), Paige Barnard, Zoë Jackson (Lucky Di Biasio) , Tessa Osborne, Jodie Fenn, Rhiannon Kelly, Andrea Edobor, Chloe Gunn, Lindsey Cockle (Leasha Ngotho), Tarn Harris. Unused sub. : - Bethany Brown Hunter Scott.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 1
Flamingoes 8
GLRWFL – DIVISION 2 NORTH

Spurs Reserves were hit by an eight gun salute by the visiting Flamingoes, who flew North of the river for this Russell Cup tie.

It was Tottenham that took the lead when Natalie Arbuckle and Fiona Butterfield linked up for the latter to fire Spurs ahead after 26 minutes. However, Flamingoes levelled seven minutes later and then four more goals were added by the visitors in the 10 minutes before the break, which turned the game to their advantage and they went on to total an 8-1 win by the end, as the Spurs team were out-thought and out-fought for the first time this season.

Team: Lisa McCabe, Ebony Heath, Mary Griffiths, Louise van Hamme (c), Katie Taylor, Laura Allen, Kirsty Allen, Chanel Breen (Charley Sandford), Sarah Mair (Lizzie De Asha), Fiona Butterfield, Natalie Arbuckle.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 2
Colney Heath 1
LONDON & SOUTH-EAST WOMEN’S REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION

The New Year started with a well-deserved win for the Spurs Ladies First team, as they leap-frogged London Colney in the table after beating them 2-1 at Fred Knights.

Halfway through the first half a suspiciously looking offside Colney forward ran on to score the opening goal of the game. The visitors then stepped up the pace an d hit the bar, as well as bringing a good save from Lacey Amato, but before half-time another borderline offside this time went Tottenham’s way and Rosi Webb made no mistake to level it up at 1-1.

The second half saw Amato leap upwards to tip a free-kick over the bar, but Spurs created a string of chances, which all went begging until Samarawit Bereket ran at the London Colney defence and squeezed home the winner with ten minutes left.

Team: Lacey Amato, Dom Clarke, Kelly Herrett, Athena Yennaris, Hannah Charman, Kat Clifton, Samarawit Bereket, Gill Blackmore, Claire Singh (Hayley Graham), Rosi Webb (Jessie Richards), Faye Callaway.
Unused subs. : - Kerry Daniells, Jenny Curtis.

SUNDAY DECEMBER 16

Tottenham Hotspur U10s 1
Long Lane U11 2
LONDON YOUTH FA U11 CUP – SEMI-FINAL

A brave effort by the Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Under-10s saw their London Cup run ended by the older girls from Long Lane.

However, despite being 2-0 down from the first half, Spurs put in a spirited showing in the second period to peg the visitors back in their own half for most of the time and grabbed a goal after many attempts on goal, as Chloe Tunnicliffe tucked away a low Ronell Humes cross at the far post.

As hard as they tried to get a leveller, the ball would just not go in and when Tunnicliffe’s late effort skimmed the top of the net, it was just not going to be the girls’ day, but they will draw much confidence from playing a side a year older and giving them such a close match.

Squad: Renee Lamy, Jacqueline McLucas, Ronelle Humes, Megan Jones, Ellis Lunn, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Rebecca Mills, Alice Simmonds, Molly Bassett.

SATURDAY DECEMBER 15

Enfield Town U11 A 0
Tottenham Hotspur U11 Whites 3
HCGFL – U11 DIVISION 1

The Spurs Ladies Under-11 Whites played some neat, controlled football in beating Enfield Town Ladies A in the HCGFL.

Tottenham started strongly and it was Rachel Hands who popped up to hook the ball home in the early stages. Tia Fogarty added another for Spurs just before the break.

In the second half, Spurs continued to have most of the possession and it was Tia Fogarty who fired home in the top corner of the goal after a mazy run for her second of the game to put them seven points behind the leaders, but with four games in hand.

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

SUNDAY DECEMBER 16

Denham United U12 0
Tottenham Hotspur U12 Blues 10
HCGFL U12 CUP – GROUP A

With this being the third game in the League Cup group for the THLFC Under-12 Blues, they have a record of played 3, won 3, scored 32, putting them through to the quarter-finals with one game still to play.

The girls constantly attacked, passing and moving with intelligence and energy, as they ran in goals from a well-taken Amy Runciman hat-trick, two each from Phoebe Guiver, Jess Johnson and Chloe Smith, with the other finished well by new signing Hannah Mills to maintain their unbeaten record this season in all competitions so far.

Squad: Naomi Coulson, Sam Delves, Jemma McCarthy, Monique Thompson, Phoebe Guiver (c), Georgia Miller, Louisa Fox, Hannah Mills, Alison Woodward, Amy Runciman, Jess Johnson, Chloe Smith.

Tottenham Hotspur U13 4
Crystal Palace U13 1
LONDON FA YOUTH U13 CUP – SEMI-FINAL

A stirring Cup semi-final at Fred Knights saw Spurs Ladies Under-13s progress to the final stage for the third year running with a hard-earned 4-1 win against a very good Crystal Palace side.

When Nina Pontes netted a rebound from the keeper’s save in the 15th minute, it gave the girls confidence to attack the Palace side, with a second goal coming from the boot of Lydia Maher, who raced onto a through-ball and stroked it home after rounding the goalie.

It was 3-0 before the interval, as Pontes made a wide run and squared the ball unselfishly for Bobbi Cubbberley to fire a shot high into the net.

Palace weren’t finished yet and their captain hit a high shot over Lily Tyrimos to pull a goal back, but in pushing forward, Tottenham created more opportunities and when one was taken by Maher after dribbling past three defenders, a place in the final was assured.

Squad: Lily-Anna Tyrimos, Rebecca Dowling, Tianna Carrington, Vicki Blake, Alexa Rangecroft, Jade Finch, Tori Tripp, Lydia Maher, Charlotte McLucas, Saskia Collins, Laura Newby, Bobbi Cubberley, Nina Pontes
Unused subs. : - Blerta Berisha, Hollie Watson, Shoshana Field.

Tottenham Hotspur U14 10
Parkfield Youth U14 1
HCGFL – U14 DIVISION 1

Against a depleted Parkfield side, Spurs used the extra space to display their passing ability and they opened up a resolute visiting defence on ten occasions.

With the score 3-1 at half-time, Parkfield had defended stoutly, but as they tired Tottenham made use of the extra player and Renata Inniss helped herself to five goals, Whitney Tango 2 and there was a goal each for Taylor O’Leary, Nikki Hunnable and Katie Mills as the Spurs girls put on a fine display for the end of the year.

Unfortunately, the Parkfield keeper dislocated her shoulder trying to stop the last goal and we wish her a speedy recovery.

Squad: Charlotte Dean, Sarah Skipper, Shianne St. Louis (c), Molly Kmita, Katie Mills, Ayse Mustafa (Hannah Lyons), Renata Inniss, Taylor O’Leary, Siobhan Jones, Nikki Hunnable, Whitney Tango.

Tottenham Hotspur U15 Whites 0
Long Lane U15 1
HCGFL – U15 DIVISION 1

Spurs Under-15 Whites faced Long Lane in the quarter final of the London FA Youth Cup without either of their recognised goalkeepers and a number of other players unavailable.

In the end, the girls put in an excellent effort and were extremely unlucky not to progress into the next round, losing out to the only goal of the game, as they had little luck going their way as they strove for an equaliser.

Squad: Zoe Jackson (c), Jodie Fenn, Paige Barnard, Lucky Di Biasio, Tessa Osborne, Andrea Edobor, Chloe Gunn, Aimee Rose (Leasha Ngotho), Lindsey Cockle (Tarn Harris), Bethany Brown Hunter Scott, Rhiannon Kelly. Unused sub. : - Vanessa Hassan.

Tottenham Hotspur U16 0
Eltham Town U16 1
LONDON FA YOUTH U16 CUP – SEMI-FINAL

The Under 16s put up a fantastic performance before losing in the narrowest of margin 1-0 to Eltham Town FC in the London Youth FA Cup semi-final.

In a game of few chances, it was both the defences that had the upper hand throughout. However, it was Eltham Town who opened the scoring with 15 minutes to go, heading home from a free kick close to the goal-line.

Spurs continued to battle to the end, despite the loss of Patrizia Leo and Charlie Archer to injury, from which we wish them a quick recovery, but couldn't find that elusive equaliser.

Squad: Leesa Shields, Patrizia Leo, Shikiera Richards-Lake, Jay Morgan, Alex North, Ryah Vyse (c), Sophie Petros, Rebecca Hunneyball, Charlie Newson-Archer, Stavroulla Panayiotou, Dee Gilbert, Alex Small, Becky Shephard, Semma Halil, Natalie Howard, Victoria Matthews.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 6
Hendon Reserves 0
GLRWFL CUP – ROUND 2

Reaching the end of the year unbeaten, the Spurs Ladies Reserves took another step forward in a cup competition with this comprehensive win over Hendon Reserves.

It was an early goal from Chanel Breen which put Tottenham on the road to a Third round place and that goal was quickly followed by a 20 yard strike from Laura Allen. Natalie Arbuckle added a third before the break, from 12 yards out, which set Spurs up for a second half when they created numerous chances.

Hayley Graham’s astute ball into the six yard box panicked a defender into knocking the ball into her own net to make it 4-0, before Graham herself was set up by good work by Breen and Arbuckle to slot home number five. The best was saved for last, as Spurs worked the ball the whole length of the pitch for Arbuckle to net her second and complete a victory with a clean sheet, thanks to a late penalty save from Lacey Amato.

Team: Lacey Amato, Ebony Heath, Mary Griffiths, Hannah Charman (Charley Sandford), Louise van Hamme (c), Lizzie De Asha, Katie Taylor (Sam Garner), Hayley Graham, Laura Allen, Natalie Arbuckle, Chanel Breen (Sarah Mair).

Spurs Ladies 4
London Women 1
LONDON & SOUTH-EAST WOMEN’S REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION

An end of the year 4-1 win over London Women puts Spurs Ladies fifth in the table and poised for a second half of the season challenge at the top.

Jessie Richards slid in Ebony Heath’s low cross to give Spurs the lead, with the advantage doubled when Vicci Pritchard raced in to hammer a loose ball home from 12 yards.

The visitors managed to get a goal back against the run of play, which only inspired the Spurs team to attack more and wrap up a 4-1 victory with a third goal and a cracker from Kat Clifton, struck into the top corner from 25 yards out.

Squad: Lacey Amato, Dom Clarke, Athena Yennaris, Kerry Daniells, Kelly Herrett (c), Gill Blackmore (Kat Clifton), Mel Berry, Chanel Breen, Jenny Curtis, Faye Callaway, Claire Singh, Jessie Richards, Vicci Pritchard (Rosi Webb). Unused subs: Lisa McCabe, Samrawit Bereket.
