With a stylish 4-0 victory over nearest challengers Luton, the Under-12s became the first Spurs Ladies side to win a junior 11-a-side league title on Sunday.

A stalemate of a first half was broken within five minutes of the second period when Tia Fogarty set Spurs on the way with a typically well- taken striker's goal and the lead was doubled when Rachel Hands struck a shot that bounced over the Luton keeper.

A harsh penalty awarded to Luton threatened the lead, but the spot-kick went wide and, when Emma Tammaro struck a volleyed third, Spurs were almost there. Continuing to attack, Christie Page (pictured) was rewarded for her hard work with a fourth and final goal that sealed the championship for Spurs.

However, the Reserves were knocked out of the Russell Cup at the quarter-final stage in agonising style to a strong Bushey Rangers side.

Spurs had one goal ruled out for a foul on the goalkeeper and Dee Gilbert hit the bar before Bushey scored against the run of play in the first half.

Leesa Shields' corners caused trouble every time they were swung in on goal and the ball flew just ahead of a Spurs player on three occasions as the shots rained in on the Bushey goal. But it was substitute Natalie Arbuckle who was alert to a cross and headed home to put Spurs level.

However, with players loading up the left side, the visitors had a player over to shoot home and restore their lead and deny Spurs the opportunity to get the equaliser their play deserved.

On a free weekend before their last league match, the Under-14s took on AFC Stevenage to maintain their match fitness.

Spurs ran out convincing 11-0 winners with goals from Sam Pennington, Blerta Berisha 2, Katie Fray 3, Lydia Maher 3, Bobbi Cubberley and Hollie Watson, who scored her first goal for nearly two years.

Visiting league champions QPR was a hard enough task for the Under-11s, even without Ellis Lunn and Charlie Leigh Dixon, but girls gave a good account of themselves despite losing 2-0.

And the Under-10 Blues finally got a win over their club-mates the Whites with a 2-1 victory at Frederick Knights Sports Ground on Saturday.
