Ladies impress in Trinidad and Tobago test
06 August 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies continued preparations for the new campaign with a friendly against the Trinidad and Tobago national team on Sunday.
Manager Karen Hills reported an 'ideal test' with a physical encounter won 3-0 by the team ranked 47 by FIFA at Spurs Lodge.
Kennie Garder opened the scoring for Trinidad and Tobago with a fine individual strike but Spurs competed well after that and were only undone further by a defensive mistakes and debatable penalty.
"It was a very heated and physical game - and that's just want I wanted," said Karen, whose team have now played four pre-season friendlies in preparation for the FA Women's Premier League South campaign, which starts with a trip to Chesham United on Sunday, September 1.
"I was impressed with the girls. They worked so hard throughout and I'm delighed with their fitness levels. That's what pre-season is all about."
Next up for Spurs Ladies is a friendly against Swindon Town at Frederick Knights Sports Ground (on Willoughby Lane, just around the corner from White Hart Lane).
