All the action as our Under-18s beat Watford to clinch the Premier Academy League Group B title at the Lane on Wednesday night.

FULL-TIME: SPURS 2, WATFORD 1

86.36: CLOSE - SPURS. Scramble from Townsend's corner ended with the loose ball at Byrne's feet, 14 yards out, rifled his shot through the bodies but flew a yard over.

84.49: Obika burst into the box but dragged sidefoot wide from 16 yards.

76.40: Mason flashed a free-kick just wide from the left corner of the box.

74.37: SAVE - ANTAL. Save of the game from the Watford keeper. Mason spotted Smith's run wide, his cross bounced up for Townsend to smash a volley a goal from 16 yards, Antal there to parry away diving to his left.

71.34: CHANCE - WATFORD. Mingoia whipped in a cross from the right that looked a goal all the way only for Sordell to completely miss his header six yards out.

65.59: CLOSE - SPURS. Townsend picked up the pieces after Cox tackled Whichelow centrally, got away from a couple of players in a run to the left before clipping a cross back in that Obika headed just wide from 12 yards.

64.01: SAVE - ANTAL. Play switched immediately to the other end and an effort out of nothing from Obika, who controlled, turned and hit a dipping volley from 30 yards that Antal had to peddle back and turn aside.

63.26: WOODWORK - WATFORD. Whichelow played a one-two with Bryan, right side of box, smashed at goal from the angle rather than cross and clipped the top of the crossbar.

59.11: Great defending from Smith as he backheeled away Bryan's dangerous cross from the right from just in front of goal.

51.33: CLOSE - SPURS. Townsend electric down the left, low cross just evaded Obika at the near post and then Byrne sliding in at the far post.

46.30: CLOSE - SPURS. Obika couldn't quite fashion an effort after controlling Byrne's cross from the right, the ball span out to Smith who smashed just over from 16 yards.

8.02pm: Second half kicks-off.

8pm: Teams on their way back out...

HALF-TIME: SPURS 2, WATFORD 1

42.30: CHANCE - SPURS. Townsend got to the left byline and fizzed in a low cross that Byrne just failed to convert.

34.35: SAVE - JANSSON. Watford enjoying their best spell and Brooks' 20-yard effort forced Jansson to palm away diving to his right.

29.30: PENALTY APPEAL - WATFORD. Sordell's cross from Watford's left struck Caulker, appeals for handball waved away.

28.24: GOAL - WATFORD. Great response from the Hornets. Whichelow managed to get away from Cox down the right, cut into the box and curled a left-foot shot from the right corner of the box beyond Jansson and into the top corner.

10.28: PENALTY - SPURS. Parrett sent Townsend through, left channel of the box, skipped past the advancing Antal who brought him down. Clear penalty.

9.10: Butcher did well to block from Whichelow and Sordell after Bryan crossed from the right.

3.24: WOODWORK - SPURS. Would have been even better than the first goal. Butcher picked out Mason 20 yards out, he did well to bring the ball down at all, let alone control, switch feet and drill an 18-yarder that cannoned off the foot of the post with Antal beaten.

1.10: GOAL - SPURS. Perfect start. Byrne crossed low from the right and Mason swept home on the full volley from 16 yards.
