26.03.2011 Spurs edged a tight game against Arsenal by a single goal at Spurs Lodge.  

There was little pattern to the play, as both teams shut each other down quickly, but the visitors had the better opportunities in the match, but Jordan Archer was in good nick in goal to keep them out.

Paul McBride hit a shot over the top early into the second period, with Alex McQueen just unable to reach a ball in front of goal after a scramble in front of the net towards the end.

In between, Tapping had scored in the 77th minute, following a defensive lapse by the Arsenal defenders and it was enough to end the game 1-0 to the Tottenham.

24.04.2010 Spurs were denied a win against Arsenal by a last minute flukey equaliser in this Academy League meeting at London Colney.  

The home team had taken the lead from a tenth minute free-kick which was curled in and although Tottenham had had chances before the goal, they continued to create openings, with Paul Jose M'Poku being brought down in the box to allow Dean Parrett to delicately chip the spot-kick into the middle of the goal with the Arsenal goalkeeper having committed himself.

Into the second half, Tottenham went ahead with 15 minutes remaining, as M'Poku released John Bostock and his slick finish gave Spurs the advantage.  Bostock had another chance, which went begging and although Spurs looked in charge, a free kick with time ticking away was pumped into the box and the ball went in after a couple of deflections to give the home side an ill-deserved equaliser.

17.05.2009 A single goal won the FA Premier Academy League final for Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

A fiesty start saw Tottenham have the first effort on goal, with Danny Rose's seventh minute strike going wide, after he outstripped Coquelin, then shortly afterwards, Obika dispossessed Cruise and hit a tame shot at the Arsenal goal.  Oscar Jansson was then called into action when he plunged to his left to keep out Sunu's drive from 18 yards out.  Murphy chipped over Jansson, but also over the bar and the Spurs keeper was again diving low to keep the score-line blank, as he palmed Lansbury's volley wide.

On the half hour, Nathan Byrne tried his luck from 25 yards, but it went wide of the goal and ten minutes later, it was the Spurs goal that was under threat, as Jansson saved Coquelin's header and Danny Rose kicked the loose ball away from in front of the goal.  Five minutes before the break, Byrne was robbed of the ball by Lansbury. allowing the Arsenal forward a clear run on goal, but he was inaccurate with his shot that went wide with only Jansson to beat.

Into the second half, the only goal of the game came five minutes in.  Frimpong won a midfield challenge and sent the ball wide to Sunu, who put a low ball into the goalmouth, where it was knocked in by Murphy from five yards out.  it could have been 2-0 on the hour, when Sunu again played a low cross into the box, but Eastmond missed his kick completely to give Spurs a let-off.

A 70th minute break into the Spurs penalty area by Thomas saw Jansson rush out to block his shot, but the ball went up in the air and was heading in until Calum Butcher recovered to head it out.  Spurs might have felt that they had a better chance of getting back into the game a couple of minutes later, when Arsenal's Ayling was sent off for a second yellow card offence.  While this did give Tottenham some impetus for Smith to hit a shot across goal from the corner of the box and then Thomas almost put a fierce low ball from Townsend into his own goal, but managed to get it wide, the rest of the game was seen out with Arsenal controlling possession and almost adding to their lead.

Jansson had to be on his toes to keep out a rocket of a shot from Watt, who hit it from 25 yards out and Oscar just managed to tip it wide with two minutes to go and then Lansbury shot just wide from a short corner.  In added time, the visitors hit the bar with a pile-driver from Frimpong, but there were two late chances for Spurs to equalise.  Ryan Mason capitalised on a slip by Thomas and hit a shot from the 18 yard line but it was pulled a yard or so wide.  Then, a last minute Bostock corner saw Oscar Jansson join the attack and there were some vain appeals for a handball, before the ball was cleared to safeguard Arsenal's 1-0 win.

25.04.2009 Spurs were pegged back by Premier Academy League Group A leaders Arsenal after going into a 2-0 lead at London Colney.  

Tottenham took a 20th minute lead when Kudos Oyenuga was brought down in the penalty area and a spot-kick awarded, which Ryan Mason coolly stroked home.  The lead was doubled five minutes later when Mason put John Bostock through and he finished past the advancing goalkeeper.

Arsenal got back into the game before half time with a goal, but with 69 minutes gone, Spurs could have gone further ahead, but Nathan Byrne's effort was well saved by the Arsenal goalie.  Ninety seconds later, the home team made it 2-2 and although there were twenty minutes left, neither side could get the winning goal.

05.03.2009 Two late Arsenal goals knocked Spurs out of the Youth Cup at the Quarter final stage at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham could not have had a better start, with Bostock and Mason moving the ball well to find Andros Townsend on the left wing.  His run took him past the Arsenal full back Bartley and he pulled a low ball across into the six yard box, where Jon Obika reacted first to get ahead of a defender and prod home from close range.

Arsenal had lots of possession, but some poor use of the ball and some very determined defending saw them earn a number of corners but few shots on target.  Caulker baulked Sunu as he looked to shoot on two occasions, before Tottenham got into attack again.  Townsend was put away on the left side of the box after good interplay between Mason and Obika, but the winger slashed his shot well wide.  An even better opening was created in the 22nd minute, as Mason picked out Obika's run behind the central defence and it dropped onto his foot, but he tried to steer it in rather than put power in the shot, leaving him in two minds and the ball skewed off his foot and went wide.

None of the better known players were showing their true potential and Wilshire and Parrett both got booked for petulant acts - Wilshire kicking the ball away and Parrett for a late tackle.

It was ten minutes before the break that Jansson had some work to do, with Sunu put in on the 'D' and as he strode forward, he let go a low shot to the keeper's right, but it was not strong enough to beat the Swedish keeper's outstretched arm.  Oscar then had to field a 25 yard shot straight at him from Bartley and Wilshire hit a shot that flew about 18 yards wide.

Within five minutes of the game re-starting, Arsenal were level with Adam Smith's clearance from a corner hitting Bartley and going back past him into the net.  It could have been worse two minutes later, when Thomas was released on the left side of the box, but Jansson beat his effort away.  Yaser Kasim came on for twisted ankle victim Jose-Paul M'Poku and his first act was to have a shot from just outside the box that was half-hit wide.

Stephen Caulker almost got a goal for Spurs just after the hour, when a corner was played low into the near post, but it popped up and the centre half headed goal-wards, but Shea grabbed it above his head.  Arsenal's Watt hit a shot just over the bar from outside the area and then Mason had a shot deflected just wide with Shea rooted to the spot.

As the game entered the final ten minutes, Townsend got away on the left and he beat Eastmond to play the ball into Obika, but he was denied by a tackle from Ayling and at the other end, a corner found Thomas' head, but he put the chance wide.  However, in the last minute of the game, Watt played in Thomas on the left and he rocketed a shot past Jansson with seconds remaining, taking a deflection off Calum Butcher on the way.

Into added time and the ref got in the way of Parrett's pass and Arsenal broke away to grab a third when Murphy shot across Jansson, who was left exposed as Tottenham had pressed for a late equaliser.

12.09.2000 Arsenal enjoyed large slices of luck in their 3-2 win in the Premier Academy League Under-19 match at Spurs Lodge.

Yannick Kamanan put Tottenham ahead in the 37th minute, but a handling error when Jamie Attwell dropped a cross when he hit the floor, let in Joe Osei-Kuffour to tap in an equaliser. 

In the second half, it took seven minutes for Arsenal to take the lead when Attwell tipped a shot from Osei-Kuffour onto the bar, but the ball bounced down onto Neil Lacy's knee and past his own keeper to make the score 1-2.  But Tottenham fought back to level with George Snee lobbing a shot over Graham Stack in goal for the Gooners.  Then, as the game seemed to be heading for a draw, fate intervened once more and a cross from Jermaine Pennant was deflected into his own net by Jonathan Partin to give Arsenal an undeserved win with two minutes remaining.

Spurs beat Arsenal in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup at White Hart Lane with the only goal of the game from Bobby Wiles.

In difficult playing conditions, both teams did well to produce a competitive game.  In the 32nd minute, Mike Dillon sent a long ball forward from defence, finding the Arsenal defence having difficulty on the hard pitch in trying to slide out Bobby Wiles' shot as it went into the net.

Spurs controlled the second half and John Oliver and Billy Edwards both headed off target when well placed. Arsenal keeper Glen Johnson saved well from Phil Holder and Graeme Souness while at the other end Barry Daines was alert to cut out a dangerous cross from Jimmy de Garis.
