THLFC U10 won on penalties

THLFC Under-11 Tournament - Plate Competition - Final
Other Results :

The new Under-10 side team entered the THLFC Under-11 competition and it was the firs time they had played together as a team.  They won the Plate competition, beating Enfield U11 on penalties in the semi final and West Ham U11 on penalties in the final.  In both the semi final and the final they had held the teams to 0-0. 

I think that these girls have set themselves a high standard for this coming season.  We still have a lot to work on, but it has certainly boosted their confidence.

Needless to say I am extremely proud of their performance.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U10 11
Enfield Rangers U10 0
Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Chairman's Cup - Group B
Today was the first time that the new Tottenham Ladies U10’s had played together as a whole team and based on their performance they have certainly set themselves a high standard.  

The team has three players who played at U10 last season and their experience will stand them in good stead.  The remaining players have shown that they are eager to learn and all have a good team spirit. 

Jacqueline McLucas was back in her familiar role as goalkeeper, with Molly Bassett and Megan Jones as her defensive wall.  Midfield was covered by Chloe Tunnicliffe, Ronnell Humes, Alice Simmonds and Rebecca Mills.  Up front was Ellis Lunn, who didn’t waste time in opening her goal tally.   

The girls put into practice all that they had been learning in training, they worked together and dominated the match throughout, although credit must be given to the Enfield Rangers goalkeeper, who made some good saves. 

Ellis’s six goals added to the four from Chloe and one from Megan, playing in her League debut for Tottenham Ladies, gave a total of 11.  Enfield Rangers were unable to break through the Tottenham Ladies defence and so we kept a clean sheet.

The player of the match was awarded to Ronnell, but all the girls were praised for a good all round team effort.

Garston Ladies U10 1
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U10 3
Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Under-10 Division 1

Garston played host to Spurs U10 today in our second league game and the home side’s infamous sloped pitch meant we had the advantage in the first half, with our goal at the bottom of the slope.  Chloe Tunicliffe generously handed her armband to Megan Jones to start the game against her old team.  The starting line up consisted of Renee Lamy in goal, Rebecca (Becks) Lane, Megan and Jacqueline McLucas in defence and Chloe, Ronnell Humes and Ellis Lunn in midfield. 

From the kick off, the Spurs girls showed they meant business with some great playing from all the team.  After several shots on goal, a great cross from Chloe was finished by Ronnell, making it 1-0.   

Shortly after kicking off again, the Spurs girls were back in possession and on 11 minutes, another cross from Chloe into the box was put into the net by Ellis, bringing the score to 2-0.  The Garston girls fought back and bought the score to 2-1 following a great run by one of their players.  Just before half time, Becks showed us what she was made of and aimed a great shot on goal, which we all thought it had gone in, but unfortunately was disallowed.   

The second half saw Alice Simmonds come on for Megan, and Chloe taking back her armband.  It now meant we were going uphill, and at first this looked like it would beat us, but the girls dug deep and pulled it back with some great defending by Alice and runs by Jacqueline, with ‘General’ Becks keeping them all in order.  Some great saves from Renee kept the Spurs girls in the lead.  Fifteen minutes into the second half, Ronnell increased the margin to 3-1 by getting on the score sheet again.  Time for substitutions with Molly Bassett coming on for Chloe, followed shortly by Rebecca (Bex) Mills coming on for Ellis, the girls continued to play well until the final whistle, earning us a well deserved three points. 

The girls played fantastically well today, pulling together, passing well and showing more energy than ever.  It was great for all the parents to see them coming together as a team.  Well done girls, keep it up. 

Player of the Match went to Jacqueline for her great performance on the pitch today – you were always there at the right time.  Well done Jacqueline !   

The girls were sponsored by their Manager and Coach £5 per goal scored today for Children in Need, and this was generously doubled by Ronnell’s parents giving a total donation of £30 from Spurs U10s.  Thank you everyone!  We all left Garston in high spirits, but with very cold feet !

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U10 4
Enfield Town U10 A 0
Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Under-10 Division 1

With temperatures not much above freezing, Spurs were playing host to Enfield Town A.  The Spurs girls went into this game full of confidence following their win over Garston last week although knowing this could be a difficult match.  The teams lined up in the first half with Renee Lamy in goal, Rebecca (Becks) Lane, Megan Jones and Jacqueline McLucas in defence and Chloe Tunnicliffe, Ronnell Humes and Ellis Lunn in midfield. 

From the off the Spurs girls took possession with Chloe whizzing down the left hand side and following a shot on goal, which the keeper fumbled, it was left to Ellis to slot the ball into the net with just seconds on the clock.  A great start and from that point we didn’t look back, with most of the possession in the opposition’s half and several shots on goal, Spurs looked to dominate the game.  Enfield Town managed a good run with their no. 4 taking the ball up the pitch and taking a shot, but it was well saved by Renee.   

With the ball back in our comfort zone, Megan aimed a shot on goal which was well saved by the keeper.   The first substitution was made half way through the first half with Alice Simmonds coming on for Megan.  Not long after this Chloe took aim from outside the box and the ball bounced off the far post and into the goal making it 2-0.

The rest of the first half saw some good defending from the girls, remembering what they’d been taught in training, and with Becks making a run with the ball down the right hand side of the pitch, she saw an opportunity and took a shot which again was saved by the keeper.  Following another good run from their no. 4, Renee again pulled it out of the bag and made the save.  Just before the half time whistle blew, Molly Basset came on for Chloe.   

Enfield Town kicked off the second half, and with no changes to our team, saw some excellent passing and teamwork from the midfielders, Ellis, Chloe and Ronnell all working together.  After only two minutes, Ronnell increased the score again, picking up a loose ball and knocking it through the keepers legs into the net.  The next goal wasn’t too far away and came from Ellis passing the ball into Chloe who scored her second goal of the game. 

At the other end, with Renee having to make another save to keep the score 4-0 it was then time for more substitutions with Rebecca Mills (Bex) replacing Ellis on the pitch and Molly and Alice coming on for Chloe and Megan.  With just 10 more minutes until the final whistle, the girls continued to work well together with some good passing from both Molly and Bex and good defending from Alice putting pressure on the other team right until the end.  Another three points well deserved, well done girls!

 

Player of the Match went to Ronnell for her hard work and her endless energy shown during the match.

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U10 4
Hitchin Town Belles U10 2
Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Under-10 Division 1
The Spurs girls lined up against visitors Hitchin Town Belles in their fourth league game of the season.  A slight change to the line-up today as captain Chloe Tunnicliffe was unable to make the match today so the team started with Renee Lamy in goal; Jacqueline McLucas, Alice Simmonds and Rebecca (Becks) Lane in defence and Megan Jones, Ronnell Humes and Ellis Lunn in attack.  Ellis started the game as captain. 

The Tottenham girls started slower than normal today and they seemed to lack the usual level of energy.  However, it didn’t take long for the girls to settle down and on four minutes, following a pass from Ellis, Becks took her opportunity and scored her first much-deserved goal of the season by driving the ball into the top of the net. 

With the play mostly in the opposition’s half, Hitchin’s no. 12 was the one to watch and after several attempts by Hitchin to break through our defence, we saw her make a run, past our defenders and slot the ball into the net and less than a minute later they took the lead with their second goal of the game from the same player. 

The Spurs girls were now on the attack and weren’t going to let Hitchin hold the lead for long.  They’d learnt their lesson with the last two goals and full of determination, Jacqueline took the ball up the pitch and slotted the ball through into Ronnell, who finished with a strike on goal, bringing the score level once more.  Ronnell was now on a roll, and three minutes later with her second goal of the match. 

The second half started with no changes, apart from Jacqueline now taking Captaincy.  The girls had listened to wise words from both their Manager and Coach and we saw some improved passing and great teamwork.  After such great play, and a near goal following a fantastic pass into the area from Megan, it didn’t take long for Ellis to make a well timed pass into Ronnell who put the ball past the keeper to complete her hat-trick.  

Ten minutes into the second half, Molly Bassett came on in midfield for Megan and showed us how much she’s improving with some great play. 

The teams were well matched and it could have gone either way, but with the girls determined to get another three points, they battled on.  Alice was always ready in defence should the Hitchin girls break through and although Renee didn’t get to see much of the ball today, she made a great save when their formidable no.12 struck again. 

It was time for Rebecca (Bex) Mills to make an appearance giving Ellis a well earned break and she showed us how much she too has improved, making a great contribution to the match.  Further changes were made just before the final whistle, with Megan and Ellis both making another appearance for Alice and Ronnell. 

It was impossible to pick a player of the match as all the Spurs girls worked together to give a great performance, however the girls made a team decision and awarded the Player of the Match to Ellis, although Molly and Becks also received well deserved nominations.  Well done girls !

Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U10 1
Long Lane U10 2
London Youth FA U11 Cup - Semi-final
After beating Crystal Palace Under 10s for a place in the semi-final, it was now time for the girls to face an Under 11 team in this London Cup.  Tottenham played host to Long Lane U11 and the teams lined up in the first half with Renee Lamy in goal, Rebecca (Becks) Lane, Alice Simmonds and Jacqueline McLucas in defence and the now familiar threesome in midfield, Chloe Tunnicliffe (c), Ronnell Humes and Ellis Lunn. 

From the off the Spurs girls were on the defence and work hard in defence they did.  Some great defending from all three girls, getting us out of trouble quite a few times.  Despite the girls using all their skills, Long Lane got their first goal on 10 minutes.  Not beaten the Spurs girls battled on, now knowing that it was going to be a tough match.   

It was an entertaining first half, and following some good passing down the field from Ellis and Ronnell, the ball was received by Chloe who took the ball into the box which unfortunately went wide.  Not giving up it wasn’t long until this threesome again worked together to pass the ball into Chloe who again took a shot which was this time saved by the keeper.   

Action then came at the other end of the field with Renee making a brave dive to rescue a shot.  After 20 minutes of determined play, it was time for a substitution and Megan Jones came on for Alice.  Before the half time whistle Long Lane again added to their tally, making it 2-0. 

The second half kicked off following some great words of encouragement and praise from both Manager and Coach during half time.  Taking this onto the pitch with them the girls continued to play their socks off, taking all the advice given on board.  Frustratingly for the girls, Spurs had many opportunities, but the ball wouldn’t go in the net, until finally following a cross across the box from Ronnell, Chloe finished it with a goal.  The game was now back within reach for the girls.   

Following lots of shouts of encouragement from the sidelines, the girls dug deep and they continued to battle, with some great defending again from Becks, Jacqueline and Megan and even Ellis on the odd occasion when she appeared at the other end of the pitch.  Our next chance for a goal came from a great corner taken by Becks into the box which Chloe picked up, but it skimmed the top of the net.  Unlucky ! 

The rest of the match continued, and despite the bribery used by the parents, the girls couldn’t get the equaliser and the game finished 2-1 to Long Lane.  Despite the girls loss, the Coach, Manager and parents couldn’t have been prouder.  The girls played the best they’ve played so far and have come so far since the start of the season.  The whole team were congratulated on their game and all the girls were awarded Player of Match for their great performance.  Bring on the league games in 2008 ! 

Merry Christmas to all players and their families!

Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Under-10 Division 1
For our first post Christmas match, Spurs were playing host to Enfield Town B for our fifth league match of the season.  The teams lined up in the first half with Renee Lamy in goal, Rebecca (Becks) Lane, Alice Simmonds and Jacqueline McLucas in defence and the midfield threesome, Chloe Tunnicliffe, Ronnell Humes and Ellis Lunn completing the Tottenham Ladies line up. 

The game started slowly with the Spurs girls lacking their usual energy and enthusiasm (too much partying over Christmas perhaps?) but both teams were making an effort to gain the upper hand.  After 10 minutes, an old injury started causing Jacqueline some problems and Megan filled her position on the pitch.   

The play continued with the ball in open play and with their energy and passion returning we saw some good attempts on goal from the Spurs girls.  Renee was kept on her toes at the other end but continued to keep a clean sheet.  However, it was Spurs, with their ever improving passing qualities, and energy from the midfield trio, that were looking most likely to get the all important first goal.  And that’s exactly what happened when our first goal finally came following a pass in from Ronnell to Ellis and onto a well positioned Chloe who slotted the ball into the net on 15 minutes. 

With the first goal in, it wasn’t long before another chance arose and following a cross into the box from Ellis, Ronnell kicked the ball between the keepers legs into the goal making it 2-0.  We then saw Bex Mills coming on for an injured Ronnell and it wasn’t long before we saw Bex take a shot on goal which just missed the net.   

With play continuing mostly in the opposition’s half, it wasn’t long until Ellis took a shot from the edge of the box which disappointingly hit the far post.  With the half-time whistle about to blow, a cross in from Becks was finished with Ellis finally getting her goal with a clean shot over the keeper’s head. 

Feeling more confident a change in format was called for in the second half with Ellis playing up front, Chloe, Bex and Megan in midfield and the defensive pairing of Alice and Becks taking their positions at the back. 

Again the girls took their time warming up and it took a while for the game to get moving again.  The ball spent most of the second half in open play.  Apart from a few breaks up the pitch from Enfield Town, resulting in some determined defending from the Spurs side, and with endless Spurs corners, no further goals were scored at either end.  The final substitution came half way through the second half firstly seeing Ronnell back on the pitch giving Alice a well earned break, swiftly followed by the reappearance of Jacqueline coming on the replace Megan. 

The final whistle blew with the score unchanged at 3-0.  Well done girls, another good performance. With such a good performance put in by all the girls, the decision on Player of Match was handed to the girls to decide and following lots of discussion it was a tied result between Chloe and Ronnell, with the overall decision taken by their Manager and the trophy was awarded to Ronnell.  Outstanding Player of the Match was awarded to Bex for her determination shown during the game.

Enfield Rangers U10 0
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies U10 3
Home Counties Girl's Football League  - Under-10 Division 1

On a beautiful sunny morning the Spurs girls travelled up the road to play much improved Enfield Rangers.  The teams lined up with Rebecca (Becks) Lane, Megan Jones and Alice Simmonds in defence with Chloe Tunnifcliffe (c), Ronnell Humes and Ellis Lunn taking their now familiar positions in midfield and Renee Lamy in goal. With Manager Vicky away sick, the girls had to make her proud in her absence. 

Fairly confident from previous wins against this team, from the whistle Tottenham Ladies took possession but it soon became clear that the Enfield girls weren’t going to give in easily.  After several Spurs corners and the score remaining 0-0, Enfield’s no. 8 made a great run up the pitch, through our defenders and with an up-close shot on goal, Renee held her nerve and pushed the ball away, but not before the Enfield supporters thought they had their first goal of the season in the net.  Well done Renee!  Enfield Rangers appeared to have the upper hand, with the ball making several appearances in our half, but we saw some great defending by Alice saving us from another attempt on goal.  At the half time whistle, the score remained 0-0. 

The second half started with the Enfield Rangers side again looking strong and Renee was again called upon to make a brave save.  With the Spurs girls feeling frustrated at not being able to get the ball past the Enfield defence, it was clear we needed our first goal to give us that extra confidence, and half way through the second half it was Ronnell making a solo run down the wing and kicking the ball past the keeper into the net that gave the girls the lead they needed. 

Spurs had their confidence back and the improvement in their game was immediate.  We saw some great defending and passing up the field from Megan and Becks at the back, helping all three midfielders make their attack on goal, and attack they did.  Even the Enfield Rangers defence couldn’t stop them and shot after shot was made on the goal and all credit to the Enfield goalie for some great saves.  Ellis was so determined to get her first goal of the game, she even found herself laying in the goal mouth at one point!  Her chance finally came in the next few minutes taking the ball past the keeper and slotting it in the net making it 2-0. 

The girls battled on and we thought it was goal number three when following a great pass from Becks, Chloe took a shot which sliced past the wrong side of the goal post. 

Time for a substitution and Rebecca Mills got her chance, replacing Chloe on the pitch. With full-time approaching, the last piece of action saw a scramble in the goal mouth with all our midfielders, Enfield defenders and the keeper desperately trying to get the ball.  It could have been anyone’s goal, but Ellis managed to get her foot on the ball and lift it over the keeper’s head into the net making the score 3-0. 

Despite the comments from Team Enfield, it was a WELL DESERVED WIN!!  Player of the Match went to Renee, as the last defender on the pitch it can be the most difficult job and Renee had no hesitation in coming out and making some great saves (although Phil Tunnicliffe thought it was because she was well warmed up before the match!).
