The Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues game against QPR started off with Tegan Burling in centre with Amy Nash. Hannah Grafton took her position in goal.

From the whistle blow QPR were on the attack they won possession of the ball and made a shot at goal.  Hannah knocked this away swiftly.  Rangers were given a corner kick which they aimed well and managed to score a goal against The Blues. Hannah’s goal kick went to Tegan who ran with it up pitch making it to the QPR goal area.  The defence knocked the ball off pitch giving Tottenham a corner.  Gemma Biggadike came forward to take this. Gemma’s kick went to Amy who headed the ball to Alliyah McDonnell.  QPR tackled and gained possession of the ball, they kicked the ball away from the goal area but Kelsey Smith picked up the ball and shot to Tila Lawton.  QPR tackled for possession and won kicking the ball back to the Spurs goal area taking a shot at goal.  Hannah knocked away and Tegan was there to get possession, Tegan went for a wing run but QPR closed in on her regaining the ball and took a wide shot at goal.  Amy was there though to catch the ball on her chest and pass to Leah Grafton who kicked the ball away to Kelsey.  Kelsey went to carry on up field but she was tackled and QPR made a shot at goal which forced Hannah to dive for the ball but she was able to catch it making the save.  During the goal kick, a foul occurred and QPR were given a free kick merely 15 yards from the goal.  From this they scored a second goal against the Blues. Half time was called. 

The second half saw Alliyah took her position in goal. Kunbi Soleye came on relieving Kelsey and Tila Lawton came on for Gemma. From the whistle blow Tottenham were applying pressure.  QPR tried entering the Spurs goal area but Hannah and Leah made great challenges and kept the ball at bay.  Tegan took a throw in which was aimed for Amy but QPR went for the tackle and a free kick was given to them as a result.  The free kick was a shot at goal, but Alliyah saved and kicked down to Tila who tried taking the ball away, but QPR tackled and kicked the ball to their striker who shot for goal.  Alliyah went to save the ball but it was a good shot and went in. The goal kick was knocked off pitch and Tegan took the throw in passing to Amy down the line.  Amy passed to Kunbi who played the middle field and crossed to Tegan who had made it back down the pitch. Tegan went for the goal area but was tackled. At this point a substitution was made bringing Kelsey and Gemma back on pitch.  QPR took a throw in which Amy got hold of and crossed to Kelsey who cleared down to Gemma, who went up the wing, but the ball was kicked off pitch. Some more good plays were made but it was not long until the half time whistle was blown. The final score was 3-0 to QPR.  

Although this game was a loss to the Blues they should all be proud of the way they played the game and for not giving up until the final whistle. 

Player of the match went to Amy Nash for her brilliant skills on pitch. Amy is proving herself in defence making it difficult for the opposition to pass her and has an impeccable talent for taking long throw ins and wide passes on her chest and head with good control.

The Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues game against Enfield Rangers saw Kelsey Smith taking her position in goal. Tegan Burling got possession of the ball from the centre kick and took the ball to the wing and continued to run up pitch. Tegan passed across to Gemma Biggadike and Gemma took the ball closer to the goal area crossing over to Alliyah Mcdonnell. Enfield intercepted the pass and cleared the ball down pitch heading towards the Spurs goal box. Leah Grafton went for a tackle but Enfield passed and had a shot at goal. Kelsey fiercely knocked the ball away.  

Enfield were given a corner so The Blues got into their positions. Amy Nash intercepted the corner with one of her classic headers and passed to Hannah Grafton who cleared the ball down pitch to where Tegan was waiting. Amy ran up to Tegan and together the two got the ball back up to the Enfield goal area. Seeing Gemma in front of the goal Tegan passed to her and Gemma lobbed the ball into the top of the net. The score was 1-0.  

Enfield were given a free kick but Leah made a tackle and cleared the ball away. Enfield went for the ball but Amy had the ball firmly under her feet dribbling around the opposition and shooting towards Alliyah who had made herself available. Alliyah took the ball up the wing but Enfield knocked the ball off pitch, Gemma came forward to take the throw in. Seeing Tegan in a space Gemma aimed for her but Enfield intercepted and took the ball back down to the Spurs goal area. The Blues defence tried to get the ball away quickly but a foul occurred and Enfield were granted a penalty kick. It’s what every goal keeper dreads but Kelsey was ready to make her move. The Enfield player took her strike and the ball went to the left bottom corner. Kelsey made her dive and the ball did not make it in the net. 

Once the players got back into their positions the game continued. Enfield battled to get the ball into the Spurs half of the pitch but Alliyah and Amy made it tough for them to break through the centre, Hannah and Leah backed them firmly in defence. Half time was called, the score 1-0.   

Amy took over from Kelsey in goal for the second half. The girls were determined to keep ahead in the game. Alliyah got the ball and had a brilliant run up pitch passing to Gemma who shot straight for the goal and straight in it went making the score 2-0. Still the girls were on their toes not slowing the pace. Gemma took a free kick and went for the goal again but the Enfield keeper knocked the ball behind the goal. Gemma took the corner, Enfield intercepted and tried to take the ball away but Alliyah took the ball back off of them and shot up to Tegan. Tegan ran back up the wing, she saw a clearing and took her shot. A fantastic goal with an equally brilliant celebration to match the score was now 3-0. The Enfield goal keeper kicked the ball to the defender but Kelsey was straight on them, if they were to pass her it wouldn’t be done easily. Kelsey got the ball and dribbled around the player crossing to Gemma who swung the ball for the goal. Hat-trick for Gemma leaving the score a smooth 4-0.  

Tegan took a throw in which Enfield got their feet on and made a break for the Spurs goal area. Unluckily for them Hannah and Leah were on the guard so they did not break through. Leah cleared the ball up to Kelsey who ran up passing to Alliyah. Alliyah shot for the goal but it was knocked up and hit the crossbar coming back onto the pitch right to the feet of our three goal scorer. Not wasting the opportunity Gemma struck the ball and in it went the score now 5-0. 

Enfield went to clear the ball away but again Kelsey was there blocking them from passing, when they did Tegan snatched the ball and went for the goal. Tegan aimed, shot and scored the sixth goal of the match. Enfield cleared the ball all the way down pitch but Hannah was there to pick the ball up. Knowing time was running out Hannah saw the clearing up the pitch and made a run with the ball. Hannah ran all the way up the pitch to the goal area and shot. Enfield made a dramatic save of the shot and the final whistle was blown. 

It has been almost six weeks since the girls have played a game due to the adverse weather but you would not have known that from the skill shown today a very good comeback match girls well done. 

Player of the match went to:

Leah Grafton who stood strong in defence, supported her team and saw to it that our goal keepers had as little action as possible.

Hannah Grafton who also supported her team, always ready to intercept a ball and has a great clearing shot when necessary.

Amy shot the ball back by the keeper who gave a mighty go at stopping it but nothing could be done the goal was scored. Amy made the score 7-1 to the Blues.

Hannah passed the ball to Leah who took the ball away from the goal area passing to Alliyah. Alliyah took the ball up pitch and passed up to Kelsey but a foul occurred giving Spurs a free kick. Gemma took this and with the goal in her sights kicked the ball straight for the net. Nothing got in her way and Gemma made the score an unbelievable 8-1 to Spurs.

A substitution was made. Kelsey came off and Tila came on. Enfield kept their heads up and showed the Blues nothing but determination they took the goal kick and went straight for the goal area. They broke though and took a shot at goal which they scored. The score was now 8-2.

Tila passed to Amy who crossed to Gemma but Enfield knocked the ball off pitch giving Tottenham a corner. Gemma took this but Enfield safely cleared the ball and the full time whistle was blown. The game ended with the score a glorious 8-2.

Man of the match went to Captain Tegan Burling. Besides her unbelievable tackling and dribbling skills and being able to score 4 goals in one game, this went to Tegan because she showed us all great team work always being there to help her team mates when they needed her. Tegan showed nothing but fearless leadership throughout the game.

This was a fantastic win for the Blues who continue to vastly improve their individual and team skills with each game. Well done girls.

The Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues game against Denham started off differently from other matches.  The Blues team today consisted of five players.  Tila Lawton took her position in goal; Amy Nash, Kelsey Smith, Gemma Biggadike and Tegan Burling were on the pitch.

Denham started the game by kicking off in centre circle and Gemma quickly intercepted and passed to Kelsey who shot for goal but this was saved. Tegan intercepted Denham’s pass but the ball was knocked off pitch, Tegan took the throw in passing to Kelsey. Kelsey passed up to Gemma but Denham gained possession taking the ball to the Spurs goal area. Amy guarded the goal area but was outmanned and kicked the ball off pitch. Denham took the corner kick but Amy got the ball, swiftly clearing it to Tegan who ran back towards the Denham goal area along the wing. Tegan passed to Kelsey but Denham intervened. This was Kelsey’s ball though and she tackled the player to win back possession. Kelsey passed back to Tegan who was in a good position to shoot and she did. This was saved however and the Denham keeper gave a mighty kick down the field. Amy was there to catch the ball on her chest and she quickly kicked the ball towards Gemma. Denham intercepted and took the ball back down pitch towards the goal, taking a shot. Tila knocked this ball away from the net but Denham had three players waiting to gain possession. They did and shot again but Tila grasped the ball with all her might saving the ball again. Tila kicked the ball towards Tegan on the wing and Tegan ran to centre passing to Gemma. Seeing the clearing to the goal Gemma shot from the centre line. A brilliant shot on target but the keeper stopped it from scoring. Kelsey intercepted the Keepers kick and went for the goal area taking a shot but Denham intercepted the shot and cleared the ball down pitch. Amy intercepted a pass with a header but Denham were after the ball before it landed, they took the ball to the goal area and spurs were forced to knock the ball off pitch giving Denham a corner. Denham positioned themselves well and the corner kick turned into a shot on target. Tila was ready and caught the ball on the safe side of the goal line.

Tila kicked the ball towards Amy, Amy passed up to Tegan, Tegan shot through to Kelsey, Kelsey passed to Gemma, and Gemma shot for the goal. The score was now 1-0 to The Blues. An unbelievable goal. The game carried on, but there was not long before the half time whistle blew.

The second half carried on with all the girls in the same positions.  Denham was relentless keeping on the Blues every step they took. They won possession of the ball and took another shot at goal but Tila saved this and cleared the ball down to Kelsey, who passed up to Gemma. Taking the ball to the goal area Gemma took a shot. The keeper went for the save but the ball went under her dive for the second goal for the Blues. The score was now 2-0. Denham kicked the ball far down the pitch; they kept the ball with them until they got to the goal area. Denham took a shot which was directly on target and was sure to be a goal. Tila prevented this from happening with a heart stopping save. With a deep breath Tila gave a mighty kick down pitch towards Tegan, who controlled the ball but Denham tried to intercept taking Tegan down with the tackle. This clearly was a painful landing, but the determination in our captain was intense and she was going to finish the game. The game continued with much difficulty. The Blues were outnumbered and had to battle to keep the ball safely away from the goal area. The girls were triumphant when the full time whistle blew. The score was 2-0 to Tottenham.

Women of the match went to:

Tila Lawton. Tila’s usual position is not that of the goalkeeper, but her team needed her so she stepped up to the challenge and was nothing but successful in doing so.

Kelsey Smith. Kelsey constantly battled for the ball, making amazing tackles and had brilliant runs up the pitch, always there to try and help her fellow team mates.

Tegan Burling. Tegan held out strong on the wing always made herself available and never stopped running for the ball. Although outnumbered Tegan always managed to get around the other players.

Gemma Biggadike. Gemma spent the vast majority of the game running the ball around the opposition, chasing passes and defending the goal area.  Gemma supported her team throughout.

Amy Nash.  Amy showed amazing defence skills and intercepted many of Denham’s passes by chesting and heading the ball, giving it back to her team.

The Blues started this game knowing that there was nothing but a challenge ahead. They kept their heads and spirits high and showed everyone just what can be achieved when you give it your all. Well done girls.

On a final note we would like to thank the Denham players, who showed nothing but brilliant sportsmanship and were extremely welcoming hosts to us, the visiting team.

The Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues game against QPR started off with Tila Lawton in the centre with Gemma Biggadike.  Positioned in goal for her very first time was Tegan Burling.  After the whistle blew QPR went straight for the ball and took possession trying to take it out of their goal area, Kelsey Smith intervened and had a shot at goal.  The QPR keeper saved and kicked the ball down pitch towards the Spurs goal area.  Leah Grafton was guarding the box and did not make it easy for QPR to have a shot and when they had an attempt, Amy Nash was there to stop the ball, passing safely to Hannah Grafton, who passed the ball on to Tila Lawton.  Tila took the ball up pitch with the help of Gemma and Hannah followed to give additional support.

QPR gained a free kick and from this took a shot at goal to which Tegan made a heart stopping save. The blues then misfortunately hand-balled the ball giving QPR a penalty shot. Tegan tried to save the shot with massive effort but the QPR penalty taker was on target and scored. 1-0 to QPR.

A goal kick was taken by Hannah, who got the ball through to Kelsey, who passed to Amy on the wing.  Amy took the ball and made a great pass to Tila, but unfortunately QPR intervened and took the ball back down pitch.  They took a shot, but Tegan would not let it in her goal.  At this point a substitution was made as Kelsey came off and Kunbi Soleye came on.

Gemma took a corner and found Amy, who went for the goal, but the keeper saved. The ball went towards the Spurs goal area and QPR got a corner kick.  Their aim was good but Kunbi was there to clear the ball. QPR came back with extra pressure, but Tegan was still solid in goal to save any shots.

Half time 1-0 QPR

The second half Kunbi took her position in goal and QPR had the ball in centre.  They went straight for the goal area, but Amy showed great defending with Kelsey making herself available for her.  QPR regained possession and took a shot, but Kunbi made a great save.  Gemma got the ball to safety, passing to Kelsey, who passed out to Tegan. The Blues gained a corner kick which Gemma took knocking the ball to Leah, who took a shot, but the keeper saved. Hannah intercepted the keeper's pass and shot again, but the keeper again saved.

Once QPR had possession of the ball, the Blues showed us some great tackling. Gemma, Tegan and Leah all had goes at winning the ball back. Unfortunately, after one of these really good tackles, Leah’s ankle was badly injured. Leah was taken off to rest and Tila was brought on in her place.  QPR hand-balled the ball and gave the Blues a free kick.  Gemma took the kick, but QPR gained possession and took the ball up to the Spurs goal area.  Rangers were intent on scoring a goal even taking two shots at goal, but Kunbi and Hannah made it impossible for them pass and kept the score at 1-0. The final whistle blew.

Player of the match went to Hannah for her brilliant defending and always being available when her team mates needed her help clearing the ball to safety.

This may be a loss for the Blues, but they played a fantastic game and in no way made the QPR win easy.  They should all be very proud of their performance as this was a very hard side to play. Good game girls.

The Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues game against Denham United started off with Alliyah Mcdonnell in goal and Tegan Burling in centre with Kelsey Smith.  Denham were immediately on the attack taking possession of the ball into the spurs box. Unlucky for them Amy Nash was on the case taking back the ball and passing to Hannah Grafton who kicked the ball safely away. Denham gave the Blues a free kick which was taken by Gemma Biggadike who shot for goal but Denham saved. 

The pressure was on with Denham on the Blues at every step. They earned a corner kick but Amy swiftly got the ball away to Ebony Eldridge who had an excellent run up pitch, passing to Kelsey who took a shot at goal but Denham saved.  Shortly after, Denham granted the blues a throw in taken by Gemma, but Denham took possession and had a shot at goal. Alliyah making a great save kept the score at 0-0. 

After the ball was kicked out of the goal area Tegan took the ball up the pitch making it to the Denham goal area, but was taken down.  The Blues were granted a penalty, which Gemma stepped up to take.  Unfortunately, her aim was slightly high and it went over the crossbar.  Denham’s goal kick was stolen away by Hannah, who kicked a high ball which got hand balled by the opposition. 

Free kick to the Blues.  Taking this was Gemma who was not going to miss a second shot.  Her kick moved the ball to the direction of the net and did not stop until it reached the back. The Blues official first goal and what a goal it was.  

Denham’s goal kick took the ball back down to the Spurs goal area, Amy picked it up passing to Hannah who had Tegan helping her along the wing.  The Blues got a throw in which Leah Grafton took.  Denham gained possession and took a shot at goal.  Alliyah saved and passed out to Leah who took the ball up pitch, her pass was intervened by Denham who played a high shot to a fellow team mate.  Unfortunately the shot went directly into Amy’s face.  A nasty injury, her coaches immediately called her off pitch to check her condition.  A minute later and half time was called.  1-0 to the Blues. 

The second half started with Amy showing her strength and determination by coming straight back onto the pitch.  A Tottenham win was in sight and she was not about to sit out.  Ebony took the place of goalkeeper.  From the blow of the whistle Gemma played a great pass across the goal to Tegan.  Wanting to know how scoring felt, Tegan took her shot.  What a fantastic second goal for the Blues thanks to our captain.  Nicely taken.  

The blues were unstoppable.  Every opportunity Denham got the ball, Kelsey made a tackle and passed back to her team mates.  Leah was on the end of one of these passes, taking a cracking shot at goal but it was unfortunately saved.  The Denham goalkeeper kicked the ball down pitch, but it was picked up by Tila Lawton.  Taking no prisoners, Tila took the ball all the way up pitch and had her own shot at goal, but the Denham keeper saved it well.  This did not deter the Blues.  Denham tried getting the ball back out of the goal area, but Tila would not let them pass and had another attempt at goal.  

Learning from this the Denham keeper kicked the ball down pitch toward the Spurs box, Denham took a shot at goal but Ebony made a great save.  Passing to Alliyah who kicked the ball towards Amy.  Seeing a clearing up the pitch Amy took a shot from the centre line.  Unfortunately Denham’s keeper stopped the ball. Denham tried to take the ball down to the goal area, but Alliyah was guarding the box not letting anyone past her.  Soon the final whistle blew. 

The score 2-0 to The Blues. 

Player of the match went to Gemma, who maintained a brilliant performance throughout the game, with fantastic corners, throw ins and of course the first Blues goal. 

This was a first win for the blues and let it be the first of many.  Every player should be proud of their individual performances and team work.  A fantastic game, a fantastic win.  Well done Blues.

The game started with the Under-10 Blues showing off their passing skills.  Gemma Biggadike had a shot, after a passing play from the back, which was saved by the Harvesters goal keeper. After winning the ball back Gemma skipped the ball past a couple of players and passed to Kelsey Smith, who took a shot at goal but again the Harvesters keeper saved.

Aimee showed great defending by managing to take the ball from one end of the pitch to the other with Tegan Burling helping her on the wing with some great attacking.  Gemma and Leah Grafton made themselves available to keep the ball in Tottenham possession.

The Harvesters managed to win the ball and take some shots but Ebony Eldridge was on the mark in goal, making some fantastic saves.

Half Time 0-0

The second half started with Hannah Grafton going on as goalkeeper. The Blues were forced to attack hard as the Harvesters were putting the pressure on.  It was not long before Harvesters scored a goal against the Blues. They then tried for second goal, but it was stopped with a great save by Hannah, who passed the ball out to Aimee and Kunbi Soleye. With their strong defence they got the ball out of the goal area over to Gemma who had a great run up the pitch, until she was fouled by the Harvesters. Taking the free kick Gemma took a blinding shot at the goal in true Beckham style but unfortunately the Harvesters saved.

Tegan and Alliyah McDonnell kept up the team memento by winning the ball back at every opportunity with some excellent tackling which resulted in some great plays by Kelsey and Gemma. The blues were unlucky not to score.

The harvesters continued to apply pressure on the Blues, but Tila Lawton kept them at bay with her defending and Tegan took possession of the ball and went on the full attack. The team battled out to the end maintaining around 70% possession of the ball.

The whistle blew calling full time and left a score of 1-0 to the Harvesters.

Man of the match went to the team captain Tegan Burling for her great attacking along the wing.

Even though the girls didn’t win they played an excellent game and showed massive potential for the rest of the season. They should all be very proud.

The Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues put in another good performance against a battling Hampstead side. The blues had most of the possession and there were some very good passing amongst the girls, but unfortunatly we could not find the back of the net.  

Hampstead only had a few attacks but unfortunately they proved decisive as they ran out 2-0 winners. 

Player of the match Kelsey Smith had a very good game, she was constantly battling and taking on players down the right wing and even had a couple of chances to score. 

As I keep saying the team are improving every week and I'm sure once we get our first win, there will be no stopping us !!

It was a very warm and sunny September afternoon as the Spurs Ladies Under-10 Blues opened their league season against club-mates the Under-10 Whites at Fred Knights.  This was a special game for the girls not only were playing against the Under-10 Whites, it was their girls very first game for the club and also a debut for the management team ! 

The game started brightly for the Blues with some good passing. The Whites soon started applying pressure towards our goal, but lucky for us Ebony Eldridge made some quality saves to keep the game level at 0-0.  Again the Whites were on the attack and after a through ball, their striker ran through to make it 1-0.  A quick second goal followed, but that did not stop the determination of the Under-10 Blues. 

Hannah Grafton made some good tackles at the back. Captain Tegan Burling made a great run down the left skipping past a couple of players but unfortunately we didn't score.  A well worked corner between Leah Grafton and Tegan Burling resulted in a shot which was well saved by the Whites keeper. 

HALF TIME 2-0

The second half started with a couple of changes:  Tila Lawton replaced Ebony Eldridge in goal and Alliyah McDonnell came on in midfield.

The girls started the second half how they finished the first strong and determined. Kunbi Soleye was solid at the back along side Hannah, who was sweeping up any loose balls.

After playing the first half in goal, Ebony was fully of energy and was causing some trouble in the opposing box. Tila made some good saves in goal to keep the score at 2-0.

Alliyah was making some fantastic runs, but unfortunately we just couldn't score, with only a few minutes left the Whites went on the attack and managed to squeeze another goal making the final score 3-0.

We may have lost 3-0 today, but the girls should all be very proud of themselves.  They all put in 100% effort and never stopped running until the final whistle.  This is a brand new team who have fantastic potential and I am confident that as the season goes on we will grow into a fantastic team who will be a force to be reckoned with !!!!!

Once again - well done girls !

Player of the match: Ebony Eldridge  -  Great saves in the first half and full of energy and running in the second half.
