FA PREMIER ACADEMY LEAGUE
West Ham U19s 1-1 Spurs
Boss Pat Holland admitted he was disappointed with the standard of refereeing in this draw.
Both sides ended with 10 men as Jimmy Lee was sent off for a second bookable offence in the second half.
In a scrappy affair, the home side went ahead with a disputed penalty before John Sutton finished off Dean Marney's quick thinking from a free-kick to level the scores.
"Both sides have a reputation for playing football but this was a patchy game not helped by the standard of the officials," said Pat.
"They went ahead with a penalty from a foul that looked outside the box and although we started brightly in the second half and got the equaliser the game was spoilt when their left-back was sent off for a second booking. Jimmy Lee was then sent off for kicking the ball away, a second booking. That was disappointing.
"All in all, neither team deserved to win it."
Spurs U19s: Burch, Lee, Herron, Hughes, Henry, Bowditch, Marney, Barnard, Sutton (Vedeux, 80), Thomas (O'Donoghue, 80), Galbraith. Unused: Jalal, Gardner.
