Spurs Ladies earned a 1-1 draw from their visit to Northampton Town in the first of three consecutive meetings with the Midlands side.

Goalkeeper Ricole Vyse was in a commanding form as the home side applied the early pressure.

A loose ball on the edge of the box was fired home by a Northampton forward to give Town a 1-0 lead, but Spurs felt aggrieved not to have a first half penalty when Alex Small was bundled over in the box.

The second half brought improvement and it wasn't long before Spurs were level when a goalmouth scramble resulted in the Northampton keeper spilling a low cross which fell to the feet of Kirsten Thomson (pictured), who accordingly put the ball hard and low into the right hand corner of the net to equalise.

The rest of the match was tense, although Spurs did come close when substitute Jessie Richards side-stepped the goalkeeper only to be intercepted by a Northampton defender who had tracked her run to deny her a winning goal.

In other results, the Under-11 side defeated Bedmond Ajax 2-0, while the Under-10 Whites ran out 1-0 winners over Enfield Rangers.

But perhaps the most exciting game of the weekend came at Under-14 level, where Laura Newby scored a dramatic late equaliser for Spurs at Harvesters to keep the sides locked together at the top of their league table.
