Sunday March 12

London Girls U12s 0
Tottenham Hotspur U12s 2
London Youth FA Cup Final
Played at Mile End

A controlled performance by Spurs Under-12s saw them play patiently to win the London Youth FA Cup against London Girls with two second half goals.

The game was played mainly in the London Girls half, but their pacy breakaways always posed a threat to Tottenham. However, an early handball gave Spurs a penalty, but Nikki Hunnable shot the spot-kick over the bar. Some good defending by Harley Keenlyside and Shianne St. Louis kept out the London goal attempts.

Into the second half, the ref awarded a free-kick for the goalkeeper carrying the ball outside of her area and Hunnable (pictured right) struck a fine free-kick over the wall and into the net. With the opponents pressing forward for an equaliser, Spurs broke with Ayse Mustafa’s through pass setting Whitney Tango free to hit a low drive past the keeper to make it 2-0 and secure the Cup for a second season for Jayne Foster’s side.

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

Tottenham Hotspur U13 Whites 0
Cambridge City U13 3
HGFL

Injury-hit Tottenham lost out to top of the table Cambridge City, but the game was closer than the scoreline suggests.

Spurs started with Zoe Jackson being replaced by Chloe Gunn and she performed well as Cambridge City made a determined start. Spurs dealt fairly comfortably for the first 20 minutes, but eventually got caught out by a diagonal ball to the striker who kept her nerve to avoid a challenge to score.

Spurs were down but not out and Lindsey Cockle and Rhiannon Kelly both threatened the goal with shots. Cambridge defended well getting plenty of players behind the ball and soaked up the pressure. With Spurs pushing forward gaps appeared in defence and the visitors exploited these on the break to score two goals to put the game beyond reach.

Squad: Sian Osmond, Jodie Fenn, Paige Barnard, Zoe Jackson (c), Stephanie Smith, Andrea Edobor, Chloe Gunn, Rhiannon Kelly, Lindsey Cockle, Laila El Haddad, Leasha Ngotho, Tessa Osborne, Katie Goodland.

Princes Park U13s 2
Tottenham Hotspur U13 Blues 1
HGFL

The ever-improving Under-13 Blues gave league leaders Princes Park a run for their money, but lost out 1-2.

The game got off to a good start for Spurs with Becky Shephard scoring in the second minute to put Tottenham ahead and then the defenders put in a strong performance to see the first half finish 1-0.

In the second half Princes Park scored in the 43rd minute, but Spurs battled on well and had some near misses with both goalkeepers making some good saves, until Princes Park scored again in the last few minutes of the game to make the final score 1-2.

The Spurs players put in a lot of effort and were unlucky to lose the game.

Squad: Megan Barsby, Grace Gilbey, Lotty Lovejoy-Crump, Olivia Rodney, Tayla Goodman, Alexandra Robinson, Stephanie Aves, Erin McGuire, Melika Edwards, Bansari Haria, Rosie Daly (c), Ruby Marlow, Kirsty Cunoosamy, Becky Shephard, Yasmin Hassan.

Bedwell Rangers U14s 1
Tottenham Hotspur U14s 3
HGFL

A late goal burst by Spurs took the points on their visit to Bedwell Rangers in the HGFL.

The first half saw very few chances for both sides as the play centred around the midfield area for long periods.

Spurs started brighter in the second half and it was Patrizia Leo who open the scoring rifling home a cross field pass after 50 minutes. Bedwell then came back into the match and were awarded a penalty within 10 minutes, which they duly scored from.

With just five minutes to go, Alex Small race onto a pass from 40 yards out to sweep the ball past the Bedwell keeper. In time added on, Rebecca Hunneyball scored with a strong low shot into the net to wrap up a win in a strong competitive match, played in a good spirit and well refereed.

Squad: - Ricole Vyse, Leesa Shields, Shikiera Richards-Lake, Hoshi Cooper-Hutchinson, Rebecca Hunneyball, Sophie Petros, Ryah Vyse, Hannah Davies (Joy Dutch), Patrizia Leo, Alex Small (Stavroulla Panayiotou), Charlie Newson-Archer (Ozner Durmush).

Tottenham Hotspur Reserves 1
Katabella 1
FRIENDLY

Spurs counted the cost of a number of missed chances as Third Division Katabella could only earn a draw in this friendly match.

Spurs had chances through Lizzie De Asha, Andrea Walkes, Mel Berry and Sam Garner, but it was Katabella who took the lead in the second half, with their first real threat on goal.

With time running out and chances for Beth Richards and Faye Callaway going begging, a run and chip over the advancing keeper saw Callaway earn a draw against a team two levels above Spurs Reserves.

Squad: Handan Djoshkoun, Dom Clarke, Jenny Curtis, Athena Yennaris, Kerry Daniells, Lizzie De Asha, Mel Berry (c), Lillie Chapman, Hannah Charman, Sam Garner, Faye Callaway, Beth Richards, Katie Taylor, Lauren Wedderburn, Rebecca Andrews, Andrea Walkes.
