Spurs Under-11 Blues have the pleasure of announcing the position for the forthcoming season of captain going to Poppy Bennett.  Peter Maynard - Manager - wishes her well and is a role she deserves to have.
 
Saturday was a curtain raiser to the new season and a chance to see the newly formed Spurs Under-11 Blues team play together for the first time.  Within minutes of the start of the game Spurs went 1-0 up to a well deserved goal by Georgia Fairs. This helped put Spurs at ease and then, with sleek passing and moving all round the pitch, more goals started to follow.
 
Maya Vio hit the back of the net three times, plus goals from Xelia Mendes-Jones and Tara Sandford.  Goal of the match went to also player of the match and newly appointed captain Poppy Bennett with a 30 yard pile driver.
 
Spurs were too strong for Hitchin and Peter Maynard - Manager and Coach - said after the game, "the girls played excellent today, it was a joy to watch.  Each girl played to the best of their ability, looking forward to next week's game against the treble winning Spurs Under-11 Whites."

The Blues turned in another very good performance, in what turned out to be a comfortable 6-0 victory against a spirited Garston side.

Putting the disappointment of last weeks 9-2 reverse to the THLFC Whites behind them, the Blues went out and played their natural passing game, with Poppy Bennett and Karla Simpson looking assured at the back, while Christie Page, Tara Sandford and Xelia Mendes-Jones pulled the strings in the middle with Emma Tammaro leading the line. 

Spurs were soon to go ahead when Xelia slotted neatly home to make it 1-0.  The second goal, a Garston own goal came from a scramble in the Garston penalty area, with Maya Vio applying the pressure, forcing the Garston error for the own goal. 

Emma made it 3-0 direct from a corner, when she drilled in a low hard cross that managed to beat the keeper at the near post and had already crossed the line before Christie got a toe on it. 

The half time whistle blew and the Blues were looking good for their lead.  The girls were encouraged to keep up the momentum and take the game to Garston in the second half. 

Further goals were to come in the second half, courtesy of Maya with two and another from Tara, to take the scores to 6-0.  With every one of the players featuring in this game and substitute appearances from Tyra Poole in goal coming on for Danielle Charles along with Georgia Fairs and Shannon Shacklock, who also made a telling contribution to an entertaining game. 

Player of the match was awarded to Xelia Mendes-Jones who is beginning to establish herself in the team and on this performance looks like shes been playing far longer than the three games shes been involved in so far this season.

Everyone knew that this was going to be a tough game against the Under-11 Whites but all I can say is the Blues really held their own for the whole of the 60 minutes with each and every member of this great team giving their all. 

The Blues more then matched the whites with their fluent moves and passing, also I believe their desire to win this game. The only thing that we lacked today was luck, that unfortunately went to our opponents. 

The score was 0-0 at half time although both sides missed a few chances, Poppy and Xelia were again great at the back, we were also treated to an unbelievable bit of showboating by our very own Tara S which even gained applause from the ref.  Go girl !

Not too long into the second half we went a goal down but the girls never gave up with Emma Tammaro hitting the bar twice, Maya Vio, Georgia Fairs, Christie Page and Tara seeing their attempts narrowly miss their target which with that little bit of luck would have seen us two or three goals up but it wasn't meant to be our day and the final whistle blew with just the one goal between the two teams.

The Blues manager Peter Maynard again couldn't pick a player of the match and if the girls keep playing like this it will make this impossible every week. 

Although the result wasn't in our favour I don't think Peter or any of the parents could have been prouder of our girls and let's just say that the future looks very very rosy for the Under 11 Blues.

The Spurs Ladies Under-11 Blues team set the tone of how this match was going to be played straight from kick off.   With a strong tackle and incisive pass from Georgia Fairs up to Maya Vio, who forced a good save from the

Luton goalie only for the rebound to be slotted home by Tara Sandford to make it 1-0 in the opening minute and to complete the first of many a delightful move.

 

This was closely followed by another great finish by Maya Vio to make it 2-0.

 

With the Tottenham players camped in the Luton half a third goal shortly followed when after yet more great movement and some desperate clearances by the Luton defenders Georgia Fairs made it 3-0.

 

Tottenham started the second half much the same as they ended the 1st with Poppy Bennett & Xelia Mendes-Jones solid at the back, Emma Tammaro and Christie Page passing ball after perfect ball up to Tara & Maya who were unlucky not to increase their goal tally.  Emma Tammaro brought the score to 4-0 with a great finish of her own midway through the second half.

 

Unfortunately five minutes from the end Luton pulled two goals back, but could not do enough to stop this well deserved win by the Blues who were unplayable at times.

 

Manager Peter Maynard could not choose a man of the match as everyone from Tyra Poole and Daniella Charles who both made some important saves in goal to Shannon Shacklock who came on as sub were a different class today and a pure joy to watch.
