Hitchin Town Belles U15 0
Tottenham Hotspur U15 Whites 3
HCGFL – U15 DIVISION 1
Some neat passing made it difficult for a well-drilled Hitchin Town Belles side to stop the Spurs Ladies Under-15 Whites taking the win at Ickleford.
In form striker Beth Brown Hunter Scott struck twice, with some powerful finishing after good moves, either side of Chloe Gunn’s scrambled effort that gave Spurs a lead they used to take the sting out of the game.
However, the Belles came back with some good chances and Sian Osmond (pictured) made a fantastic save and on two other occasions defied the Hitchin attack to keep a clean sheet.
Squad : - Sian Osmond, Katie Goodland, Vanessa Hassan, Paige Barnard (c), Tessa Osborne (Tarn Harris), Andrea Edobor, Chloe Gunn, Jodie Fenn, Rhiannon Kelly, Leasha Ngotho, Bethany Brown Hunter Scott.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 24
Tottenham Hotspur U10s 4
Enfield Town U10 0
HCGFL – U10 DIVISION 1
A resounding performance from the young Spurs Ladies Under-10s gave them three points against close rivals Enfield Town.
Ellis Lunn converted from close range with just a minute on the clock and Chloe Tunnicliffe netted with a precise shot in off the post form outside the penalty area. It was thanks to saves from goalkeeper Renee Lamy that the Spurs team went into half-time with their 2-0 lead intact.
The second half was a more subdued, but Ronelle Humes struck from inside the area and Tunnicliffe scored her second when set up by Lunn to keep the side on a three-match unbeaten league run.
Squad : - Renee Lamy, Jacqueline McLucas, Rebecca Lane, Ronelle Humes, Megan Jones, Ellis Lunn, Chloe Tunnicliffe (c), Rebecca Mills, Alice Simmonds, Molly Bassett.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 25
Tottenham Hotspur U12 Blues 2
Denham United U12 2
HCGFL – U12 DIVISION 1
Spurs Ladies Under-12 Blues faced a tough battle with a defensive minded Denham side, who became the first team to take a point off them this season.
Twice Louisa Fox gave Tottenham the lead, only for Denham to find a way past the staunch Spurs defence to finish the game 2-2. Fox first hit the net in the opening period with a through ball from Amy Runciman setting her up and her second was a fine piece of finishing from Chloe Smith’s centre, but the girls had to settle for a share of the spoils, although they retain their unbeaten record.
Squad : - Naomi Coulson, Chloe Smith, Jemma McCarthy, Monique Thompson, Phoebe Guiver (c), Georgia Miller, Louisa Fox, Nicole Hall, Alison Woodward, Amy Runciman, Jess Johnson, Sam Delves.
Belmont United U13 0
Tottenham Hotspur U13 6
HCGFL – U13 DIVISION 1
A fine display saw a new benchmark set by the girls of the Spurs Ladies Under-13 team, as they ran out 6-0 winners over a side that they could only draw with 10 weeks ago.
A performance of strength and skill saw Tottenham almost out of sight before the break. A first half hat-trick by Tori Tripp showed a marvellous array of finishing abilities and into the second half Blerta Berisha, Charlotte McLucas and Jade Finch fired three more goals to round off the performance of the season so far by all the Under-13s in the squad.
Squad : - Lily-Anna Tyrimos, Hollie Watson, Shoshana Field, Rebecca Dowling, Alexa Rangecroft, Jade Finch, Tori Tripp, Lydia Maher, Charlotte McLucas, Blerta Berisha, Saskia Collins, Vicki Blake, Tianna Carrington, Laura Newby, Bobbi Cubberley, Nina Pontes
Denham United U14 1
Tottenham Hotspur U14 3
HCGFL – U14 DIVISION 1
Another consummate performance under difficult circumstances saw the Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U14 side record their ninth league win of the season.
Without their regular goalkeeper and with two players having to leave the field with illness in the first half, Spurs still carved out enough chances to go in ahead instead of 0-0 at the interval.
The second half proved more successful for the Tottenham girls, as they ran out 3-1 winners thanks to Nikki Hunnable setting up Siobhan Jones for an opportunist strike, a poacher’s goal from Charlotte Dean and an exquisite finish from Renata Inniss.
Squad : - Shianne St. Louis (c), Sarah Skipper, Harley Keenlyside, Katie Mills, Hannah Lyons, Renata Inniss, Taylor O’Leary, Siobhan Jones, Charlotte Dean, Nikki Hunnable, Whitney Tango. Sub. : - Molly Kmita.
Tottenham Hotspur U16 0
Watford Ladies U16 1
HCGFL– U16 DIVISION 1
A tightly fought match between Spurs Ladies Under-16s and the league leaders saw a single goal settle the outcome.
With Tottenham hitting the Hornets on the break, it was a rearguard action that kept the visiting team out until the first minute of second half added time, when a goal sealed the three points for Watford.
The team will take confidence into the coming games from this plucky showing.
Squad : - Ricole Vyse, Patrizia Leo, Shikiera Richards-Lake, Alex North, Ryah Vyse (c), Rebecca Hunneyball, Charlie Newson-Archer, Stavroulla Panayiotou, Dee Gilbert, Becky Shephard. Subs. : - Leesa Shields, Semma Halil, Sophie Petros, Natalie Howard.
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 3
GLRWFL – DIVISION 2 NORTH
Another star performance by Hayley Graham paved the way for the Spurs Ladies Reserves to record a 3-0 win over Hampstead.
Having been thwarted by the Hampstead keeper once, Graham hit a shot past the goalie at the near post for a 15th minute opener and then a minute later, squared to Fiona Butterfield to score, after her initial effort was blocked.
Hampstead did put the Spurs team under pressure in the second half, but a third goal in the 20th minute from a sweeping move involving Ebony Heath and Sam Garner resulted in Graham rifling in her second.
The visitors struck the post and had another good chance, but Spurs could have added further to their total in the latter stages.
Team : - Lacey Amato, Ebony Heath, Hannah Charman, Louise van Hamme (c), Katie Taylor (Kirsty Allen), Hayley Graham, Sam Garner (Clare Singh), Laura Allen, Charley Sandford, Fiona Butterfield, Chanel Breen.
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 2
Long Lane 3
LONDON & SOUTH-EAST WOMEN’S REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION
Another tale of missed chances cost the Spurs Ladies team any return from this narrow defeat by Long Lane.
Having opened the scoring with Jessie Richards burying a shot into the top corner of the net, Long Lane proved they were up to the challenge with a quick equaliser. Goals from free-kicks either side of the half-time whistle put the visitors 3-1 ahead, but the Tottenham team gave it a go when Kat Clifton crashed a 30-yarder past the Long Lane keeper to make it a grandstand finish.
Although the remainder of the game was played mainly in the Long Lane half, Spurs created openings, but could not quite grab a point with a further goal.
Squad : - Lisa McCabe, Dom Clarke, Kelly Herrett, Mel Berry, Kerry Daniells, Jenny Curtis (Samrawit Bereket), Kat Clifton, Gill Blackmore, Faye Callaway, Jessie Richards, Rosi Webb.
