Tottenham Hotspur Ladies reserves and Under-10s have celebrated league and cup success.

Faye Callaway (pictured right) struck the championship-clinching goal for the reserves in a 1-0 win at Long Lane to secure the Greater London Regional League Reserve Division One title.

Meanwhile, the Under-10s lifted the Chairman's Cup when Isabella Rueben-Crompton struck what turned out to be the only goal of the game after 10 minutes against Luton Town. Pictures from the final appear below.

Here are all the latest reports, with thanks again to Wyart Lane...

SATURDAY JANUARY 27, 2007

Long Lane Reserves 0
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 1
GREATER LONDON REGIONAL WOMEN’S FOOTBALL LEAGUE - RESERVE DIVISION 1

Spurs Ladies Reserves travelled across the river to bring back the three points that gave them the Reserve Division One title with a game still to play.

Spurs pressured Long Lane from the kick off, but they could not gain an advantage. In playing conditions that were less than ideal, Tottenham found playing against the wind more than difficult.

With the first half finishing scoreless, Spurs soon lost skipper Gill Blackmore with an injury and the team had to be re-organised. With her first touch, substitute Louise van Hamme got a shot on goal, but without any luck.

Tottenham finally got the breakthrough when Faye Callaway latched onto the ball which beat the Long Lane defence and slotted home past the keeper making it 1-0. This was a slim lead, but Spurs had chance after chance with Faye hitting the bar, Jenny Curtis hitting the side netting and corners not being put away.

Despite having the bulk of the opportunities, there was a sigh of relief when the whistle went and Spurs had the win they needed.

Team: Lisa McCabe, Dom Clarke, Di Gardiner, Jenny Curtis, Athena Yennaris, Sam Garner, Lillie Chapman, Charley Sandford, Gill Blackmore (c) (Louise van Hamme), Jessie Richards, Faye Callaway
Unused subs: Lizzie De Asha, Laura May, Hannah Charman, Beth Richards.

Luton Town U10 0
Tottenham Hotspur U10 Whites 1
HCGFL – CHAIRMAN’S CUP FINAL

A tough Chairman’s Cup Final was settled by a single strike to give Tottenham Hotspur Under-10 Whites their first piece of silverware.

Both teams played good football, but as they were so evenly matched, it was a game with few chances. Kitty Chapman had to rush from her goal to force a hurried effort from a Luton striker that went wide and Emma Lee brought two good saves from the Town keeper.

However, ten minutes into the game, a loose ball in the Luton penalty area was driven home by Isabella Reuben-Crompton for what turned out to be the decisive moment of the match for the jubilant girls of the Spurs team.

Squad : - Kitty Chapman, Jenny Hunnable, Natasha Smits, Georgia Sanders, Emma Lee (c), Evie Rose, Isabella Rueben-Crompton, Tia Fogarty, Hannah Fenton-Burgess.

Hoddesdon Owls U10 0
Tottenham Hotspur U10 Blues 5
HCGFL – U10 DIVISION 1

An away win at Hoddesdon Owls kept the Spurs Under-10 Blues at the top of the league.

A couple of early Hoddesdon breaks gave Spurs some nervous moments, but it was Spurs who took a sixth minute lead, when Tara Sandford struck a magnificent volley from a Spurs corner. With 15 minutes gone, Poppy Bennett and Christie Page linked to put Ellis Lunn in on goal. She hit a shot which the keeper parried into the path of Chloe Tunnicliffe, who slotted home. Lunn made it three almost immediately to bring an entertaining first half to an end.

The Blues kicked off the second half and dominated the rest of the game. Goal number four saw Sandford drill a shot into the bottom corner of the Hoddesdon goal in the third minute of the second half. Bennett, Tunnicliffe and Rachel Brier all went close before Lunn wrapped up a 5-0 win with her second goal if the day.

Squad: Jacqueline McLucas, Chantay Watson, Danielle Charles, Tara Sandford (c), Ellis Lunn, Poppy Bennett, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Shannon Shacklock, Christie Page.

Denham United U11 Wildcats 5
Tottenham Hotspur U11 Blues 5
HCGFL – DIVISION 1

A ten-goal thriller saw Spurs Under-11 Whites share the points on their visit to Denham United to play the Wildcats.

Tottenham went ahead after eight minutes when a shot by Chloe Smith was deflected into the net and then Smith raced down the right wing to allow Georgia Miller to strike the ball accurately for the second goal.

Meanwhile Denham hit back and scored three times to record a 3-2 lead at the half time interval.

In the second half, new girl Shannon Eade came on to open up the left wing with some strong runs, but it was Smith who again added to the goal total, when she netted a second half hat trick with some clever running.

With the final whistle approaching, the Wildcats put in a last effort and scored twice in four minutes to force a draw in an exciting game.

Squad: Naomi Coulson, Abigail Barrett, Loren Humphreys, Chloe Smith, Phoebe Guiver (c), Georgia Miller, Shannon Eade, Louisa Fox.

Tottenham Hotspur U12 10
Barnet Azzuri U12 0
HCGFL CUP – GROUP C

Spurs Under-13s wrapped up their HCGFL League Cup group programme with a big win over Second Division Barnet Azzuri.

Tottenham were in irresistible form and attacked with great control, making the Barnet defence and goalkeeper work hard in a busy afternoon.

Midfielder Tori Tripp cashed in with five goals and her team-mate in the engine room of the side - Amy Woff – hit a hat trick.

Creative forward Bobbi Cubberley took her chances when they came along to bag a brace and leave Tottenham top of the group and into the last eight of the competition.

Tottenham Hotspur U13 5
Denham United U13 0
HCGFL – U13 DIVISION 1

Spurs Ladies eased to a comfortable win to maintain top spot in the league.

In the 15th minute, Denham attempted to clear the ball from a corner kick, only for it to fall to the right foot of Shianne St Louis, who lobbed the ball back over the keeper's head for a 1-0 lead. It was a performance that saw Spurs have lots of possession, but not excel until the second half.

Whitney Tango scored in the second minute to give Spurs Ladies a two goal cushion and the girls started to string together some good passes which lead to two goals from Laura Smith in the 17th and 21st minute of the second half; the latter being a well directed shot across goal into the right hand corner of the Denham goal.

The defence had some anxious moments, but quelled the attacks from the Wildcats, while the midfield took control to ensure the ball was in the Denham half most of the time and goal number five came from Renata Inniss in 30th minute with a drive from the outside of her right boot to add to the Tottenham total.

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

The Under 15s put up a valiant performance in losing 3-2 to Enfield Town Ladies FC in the U15 Group C fixture on Sunday.

Spurs started brightly and Stavroulla Panayiotou opened the scoring with a well taken effort after 12 minutes. Enfield came back into the game and just before the break, a driven shot from the edge of the Spurs area took a deflection to bring the scores were level.

At the start of the second half, Enfield were out the blocks quicker and hit two goals in the opening five minutes to take a 3-1 lead. To their credit, Spurs never gave up and a good through ball from Sophie Petros saw Alex Small calmly slip the ball past the Enfield keeper with 12 minutes to go.

Both teams had chances in the closing stages but the final score remained 3-2 to Enfield Town Ladies. The result means that Spurs visit Denham United Ladies FC in the quarter final after finishing Runners-up in the Group.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Reserves 0
Dagenham & Redbridge Reserves 2
SUE SHARPLES MEMORIAL TROPHY – GROUP A

Spurs started their Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy campaign in disappointing style this afternoon at Fred Knights Sports Ground.

A double blow hit Spurs when a Dagenham corner bobbled around the penalty area, with Dom Clarke and Jenny Curtis both going for the same ball to clear it off the line. Unfortunately they clashed heads and Curtis was badly hurt and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance. To add insult to the injury, the ball ended up in the net to put Spurs a goal behind.

Louise van Hamme hit the keeper with a shot and then laid the ball off to Sam Garner, who was brought down at the last minute, but there was no decision in the favour of the home side.

From another D&R corner, Laura May got to the ball, but it slipped from her grasp and rolled into the net to make it 2-0 to the visitors.

A Spurs free kick was knocked over the bar by the keeper and later Faye Callaway hit the bar.

Although Tottenham were getting the ball into final third regularly, it just could not be converted into goals and so the first group game saw a defeat.

Team: Laura May, Dom Clarke, Di Gardiner, Jenny Curtis (c) (Hannah Charman), Lillie Chapman, Athena Yennaris, Sam Garner, Charley Sandford, Lizzie De Asha, Faye Callaway, Louise van Hamme (Lisa McCabe).
Unused subs. : - Charlotte Hughes, Mary Griffiths, Gill Blackmore.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies 1
Crowborough Ladies 3
LONDON & SOUTH-EAST WOMEN’S REGIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE – PREMIER DIVISION

A disappointing performance from the Spurs Ladies in what was a game of two halves.

Crowbrough came with a positive approach and a rush from goal by Lacey Amato outside her box enabled the Crowborough striker to toe poke the ball into an empty net. A 30-yard screamer made it 2-0 and the third came from a sliced clearance from Kerry Daniells, which sailed over the Spurs goalkeeper to leave Tottenham 0-3 down at the interval.

The second half was different affair with Spurs controlling the game. Shadine Mars hit the crossbar and from a corner, Kelly Herrett flicked it at the near post on for Mel Berry to force it in to make it 3-1.

For all the possession Spurs had we could not find the goals we needed to get us back into the game and were hampered by losing Chanel Breen to a red card in the 65th minute.

Squad: Lacey Amato, Carly Snell, Kerry Daniells, Mel Berry, Kat Clifton, Kelly Herrett (c), Claire Singh (Jade Perrin), Rosi Webb, Chanel Breen, Ebony Heath (Lucy Auguste), Shadine Mars (Katie Taylor). Unused subs: Mary Griffiths.

The Under 10 Whites lost their 100% league record when they were held 0-0 against top of the table Tottenham Hotspur Under-10 Blues on Saturday.

A resolute Blues defence made it hard for the Under 10 Whites were unable to break down, but the Whites had to be on their toes to cope with the sharp breaks from the Blues and record their 10th clean sheet in a row in the league.

The hard fought draw leaves both of the club’s sides holding the top two positions in the HCGFL.

Tottenham Hotspur U11 Blues 9
Hitchin Town Belles U11 0
HCGFL – DIVISION 1

Spurs Under-11 Blues were back on track at the top of the league with a big win over Hitchin Town Belles.

Alison Woodward’s corner resulted in Georgia Miller putting the ball neatly into the net, which was the first of her first half hat-trick. Chloe Smith took a good pass, ran on towards goal and shot past the despairing goalie, before Miller repeated the move with a fine finish and Miller completed her hat-trick netting a rebound after Woodward’s shot was saved.

Humphreys and Barrett kept Hitchin at bay, while the second half opened with Woodward scoring the fifth goal and Phoebe Guiver hit a long range effort to make it six. There was still time for Miller to get her fifth and Smith got her second with a well taken final goal.

Squad: Jemma McCarthy, Chloe Smith, Phoebe Guiver (c), Georgia Miller, Loren Humphreys, Alison Woodward, Abigail Barrett.

Tottenham Hotspur U11 Whites 2
Denham United U11 Wildcats 2
HCGFL – U11 DIVISION 1

An exciting game of end-to-end attacking football resulted in Tottenham Hotspur Under 11 Whites recording their third home draw in succession, this time against Denham Wildcats Under 11.

Denham’s open play made it a game where opportunities arrived for both teams. Spurs took the lead after six minutes when Monique Thompson tested the Denham goalkeeper with a speculative lob that bounced in front of her and into the back of the net.

The Spurs side battled well, while Lauren Holman made several saves to keep the score at 1-0. A period of Denham attacking play resulted in an equalizer on 14 minutes. However, Tottenham continued to take the game to Denham and just before the half time whistle Spurs scored another goal when a Kathleen Jackson corner was not cleared and Nicole Hall stroked the ball calmly into the back of the net.

The second half began with Spurs pressing in pursuit of another goal, but halfway through the second half, it was Spurs who failed to clear a corner and Denham equalized. Both sides continued to play open attacking football without being able to find a winning goal.

Squad: Lauren Holman, Rhiannon Bassett, Carly Mackey, Kayla Miles, Kathleen Jackson, Nicole Hall (c), Monique Thompson, Rachel Brier, Louise Waldock, Charlotte Chaloner

The Spurs defender tore muscles in her leg and will be out for some time, with her team-mates wishing her a speedy recovery.

The game went against Tottenham, who found themselves 0-3 behind before Marva Kreel got a goal back. There was a shot cleared off the line and other chances for Spurs, but they were unable to narrow the gap any further.

Rosie Kmita struck to give Tottenham a 1-0 lead after 18 minutes, but Northwood pulled the scores back level before the break.

It was left to top scorer Whitney Tango to fire in the goal that won the match in the second half, when Tottenham’s play stepped up a gear to push Northwood back towards their own goal.

Although Spurs U14 Blues suffered another defeat at the hands of Leigh Rockets they gave a good account of themselves in the match.

The girls pressurised the Rockets end for the first fourteen minutes of the game, but just couldn't find the back of the net. Rockets broke away and scored in the 17th minute of the game and then got a second in the 26th minute.

In a good end to end game, Spurs kept fighting all the way through, gaining a foothold in the match when Becky Shephard scored in the 46th minute. However, Rockets got another goal in the 50th minute and the game finished 3-1 to Rockets.

Princes Park were a player short, but the team put in a battling performance, although they were unable to compete against constant pressure from the Spurs side, who, on the day, were playing a very fluent game and who bagged seven goals in the process.
