05.08.2014 Newly promoted League Two side Cambridge United beat Spurs Reserves 2-1 in a friendly at the Abbey Stadium. 

Two first half goals from Kwesi Appiah in the first half in the 10th and 28th minutes put Cambridge into a commanding lead and although Jon Obika hit a 20 yarder with 54 minutes gone, the U's held on to claim a confidence boosting win just a few days ahead of their season opener.

02.08.2014 Tottenham XI overcame a strong Dagenham and Redbridge side 2-1 at Victoria Road in this pre-season friendly. 

Josh Onamah's seventh minute drive was well saved by Liam O'Brien and at the other end Harry Voss did well to beat out an effort from George Porter.  Sonupe was denied twice before Alex McQueen's close range volley was well kept out by O'Brien.  On 36 minutes, the keeper brilliantly turned away a rising shot from Obika, who had run from right to left across the box, but despite the goalie saving Cristian Ceballos' shot from a tight angle on the right, Obika followed in to knock the ball home with 43 minutes on the clock.  However, the Daggers could have turned around level, but Abu Ogogo's header from a corner bounced out off the post.

Luke Howell had an early chance in the second half for the home side and then veteran striker Jamie Cureton struck a 25 yard shot that smacked against the crossbar.  Voss made a good save from a Howell header to preserve Tottenham's lead.

Ceballos tried to extend the advantage, but after cutting in from the right swerved a shot high and wide, but when he had his next chance to run at the D&R defence, he came inside, turned and went outside Jack Connors, who hacked him down in the box.  The Spanish winger took the spot-kick and his deft dink was just kept out by the Cousins' legs, but the Spurs man followed in to tap the rebound into the net to make it 2-0 in the 66th minute.  The Daggers did get a goal back when Ogogo's cross in the 72nd minute was headed home, high into the top corner by Christian Doidge, from eight yards out.

Spurs defended the last 18 minutes well with Ball looking good on his comeback from injury, the youngsters held out for a well-earned victory.

04.08.2012 A young Spurs XI visited Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium and won 3-1 in a pre-season friendly. 

Spurs took a fifth minute lead when John Bostock shot home from 18 yards with his left foot after being put through the middle by Ryan Mason's pass.  The home side were off target with a couple of chances through Ishmel Demontagnac's curling shot and Anthony Charles' header from a corner, while Jordan Archer had to get down quickly to push wide a shot from Abebayo Akinfenwa.  Ryan Fredericks cut inside to have a shot blocked by John Johnson and then the winger set up Bostock for a shot that was straight at Dean Snedker.

In the second half, Archer did well to react and tip over an effort from Alex Nicholls, but Spurs wrapped up the game with two quick goals from Souleymane Coulibaly shortly after.  The Ivory Coast striker intercepted a short back pass from Nicholls and shot past the keeper from a central position, then he played the ball out wide to Fredericks when 30 yards out and ran on to take the return pass and smash the ball home from the edge of the penalty area to make it 3-0.

Hackett was involved as Northampton pressed to get back into the game, hitting a shot wide, then breaking through to force Archer into pushing his shot wide, while also providing a chance for Charles from a free-kick, but the header went wide.  Moult fired a shot straight at Archer, before the Spurs keeper was beaten in the last minute, when another Hackett free kick was headed past him by Jamie Langmead.

13.03.2012 Brighton beat a Spurs XI 4-1 at Spurs Lodge. 

It was a strong Brighton side with a number of first team players making their return to the first team who faced a young Spurs team.

Tottenham went ahead when Alex Pritchard beat Casper Ankergren from outside the box, but before half time Jake Forster-Caskey (son of Darren Caskey) scored from an acute angle and then grabbed a second by curling a shot past Miles to make it 2-1.

Brighton were the stronger side in the second half and went 3-1 up with a goal from George Baker after he was set up by Toby Agdestein and then Roland Bergkamp (son of Dennis) went around the Spurs goalie to knock the ball into an empty net and round off a 4-1 victory.

29.07.2011 With a number of first teamers getting playing time ahead of the new season, a Spurs XI went to Brisbane Road and beat Leyton Orient 4-1. 

Starting with energy and attacking intent, a third minute Bentley cross was headed across goal by Peter Crouch and then Niko Kranjcar hit a cross-shot that went just wide before Pienaar did the same.  With 11 minutes on the clock, Danny Rose's left wing run and pull back was smacked against the bar by Kranjcar from just inside the box and then with 22 minutes gone, Bentley's corner found Crouch stooping to head the ball past former Spurs youth goalkeeper Lee Butcher.

Dean Cox played new O's striker David Mooney through, but he couldn't hit the target from inside the box, hitting his shot too high and at the other end, Robbie Keane could not get a decent contact on a Crouch knock down.  However, the England striker showed him how to do it with a touch and a turn to get away from his marker 25 yards out and then place the ball into the bottom right corner of the net in off the post to make the score 2-0 in the 34th minute.

As half time approached, Orient came back into the match with a 42nd minute goal from captain Stephen Dawson, who was slid through by substitute Jamie Cureton and the midfielder beat Carlo Cudicini as he came out.

The second half followed the same pattern as the first, with a quick start by Tottenham seeing Robbie Keane shooting wide and then having an overhead kick go wide after Kranjcar's free-kick ballooned up into the air.  Five minutes into the half, Spurs went 3-1 ahead with Crouch's header back across goal from Rose's cross causing confusion and the ball deflected off defender Scott Cuthbert into his own goal.

With 20 minutes left, Kranjcar rounded off the scoring, with a volley following Matthew Grieve's headed clearance fell to him at the edge of the area.  Cudicini had to be alert to stop efforts from Leon McSweeney and Matthew Spring, but there was still time for Crouch to almost grab his treble, but getting onto the end of Bentley's cross, he saw ex-Spurs reserve defender Charlie Daniels hack the ball off the line.

Leyton Orient : -  Lee Butcher, Ben Chorley, Scott Cuthbert (Matthew Grieve), Elliot Omozusi, Stephen Dawson (cpt) (Marc Laird), Matthew Spring, Jimmy Smith (Leon McSweeney), Dean Cox, Alex Revell (George Porter), David Mooney (Jamie Cureton), Charlie Daniels

23.07.2011 Spurs put out a young XI to play at Barnet in Lee Harrison's Testimonial match, which the Bees went on to win 3-2. 

It took the home side two minutes to go a goal ahead, when a Mark Marshall free-kick was dispatched into the top right corner of David Button's goal, although the beneficiary Lee Harrison was called upon to make a close range reaction stop to deny Harry Kane during his brief cameo appearance, having to leave the pitch after 12 minutes to be replaced by Dean Brill.

Barnet's second goal came from the penalty spot, with Izale McLeod firing powerfully straight down the middle after Jordan Parkes had been pushed over in the area at the mid-point of the first half.  There was a third first half goal for the Bees, as Mark Byrne stole into the six yard box unmarked to head home Mark Marshall's left wing cross to give the home team a healthy lead with just 24 minutes gone.  before the half-time whistle, Townsend had fired just wide and Jesse Waller-Lassen saw his shot kicked off the line by Dennehy.

Spurs obviously heard some hard words from Tim Sherwood at half-time and four minutes into the second period, Harry Kane was adjudged to have been fouled and got up to stick the spot-kick past Brill in the Barnet goal.  Obika had a number of goal-scoring opportunities and substitute Teddi headed over from a corner, while Brill kept out all Spurs could throw at him, especially efforts from Luongo, Nicholson and Carroll.  Obika pulled the score back to 3-2 in the 63rd minute, but Barnet kept Spurs at bay to maintain their lead at the final whistle.

19.07.2011 A Spurs XI recovered from going 0-2 down to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Algrave to grab a 2-2 draw. 

Will Hoskins and Torbjorn Adgestein gave the Seagulls a two goal lead within 40 minutes, but a minute after the second goal, Andros Townsend powered home a shot into the top corner of the net to narrow the score to 1-2.

Replacing Jon Obika at half-time, new signing Souleymane Coulibaly took little time in making his mark, with a goal in ten minutes of the second half starting, as he shot home to make the score 2-2.  Spurs were in the ascendancy for the remainder of the match and both Harry Kane and Coulibaly forced good saves from Peter Brezovan in the Brighton goal, before the Ivory Coast striker hit the post with an effort.

15.07.2011 A training camp friendly against Nottingham Forest in Portugal ended with the Spurs XI beating the Championship side 3-2. 

Spurs had taken a 2-0 lead through Harry Kane's brace.  His first saw him beat the keeper when one-on-one in the fifth minute and 20 minutes later he thrashed a 25 yard drive past the Forest keeper in the Estadio National in Albufeira. 

With an hour on the clock, Forest pulled a goal back, but Nathan Byrne's pull back lead to Kudos Oyenuga hitting the third Tottenham goal, which was enough to give the team victory despite a late Forest consolation goal.

29.03.2011 A Spurs XI managed a 2-1 win over a determined Barnet side in this friendly at Spurs Lodge. 

There was a return to playing action for Tom Huddlestone and Jermaine Jenas got a run out in the match which started well for Tottenham with a foul on Massimo Luongo in the penalty area giving Kudus Oyenuga the opportunity to convert the spot-kick with only five minutes gone.

Martin Allen's side were fired up for the game, wanting to impress their new manager and they gained an equaliser halfway through the first half.

Spurs continued to press forward with chances for Oyenuga, Luongo and Jack Munns before the half-time whistle, with John Bostock forcing Barnet keeper Roy Carroll into a good save.  At the back, Daniel Day was called to clear off the goal-line to keep the score level, but in the 73rd minute Spurs scored the winning goal.

Tom Huddlestone's stinging drive was pushed out by Carroll, but only to Munns, who laid the ball back for John Bostock to shoot home into the bottom corner of the net.

15.03.2011 Spurs edged a reserve friendly against Reading at Spurs Lodge today, with a 2-1 win. 

Four minutes showed on the clock when Dean Parrett got on the end of a Ryan Fredericks throw-in and shot Spurs into the lead.  Ten minutes later, Reading failed to get a Parrett corner away and Pritchard made the most of his opportunity to hit the net for the second Spurs goal.

Spurs had controlled most of the first period, but Reading came back into the game after the interval and with 20 minutes to go, a corner lead to Lawson D'Ath scoring for the visitors, but it did not prove to be enough to stop the Spurs XI running out winners.

11.03.2011 The Spurs XI earned a late win when substitute Alex Pritchard scored the only goal of the game against Dagenham & Redbridge (who included ex-Spur Phil Ifil) at Spurs Lodge.  

Dagenham produced some good breakaway play and the Tottenham defence held firm with keeper Mirko Ranieri securely behind them.  Spurs tried to make headway into the Daggers area, but could only create half chances for John Bostock, Dean Parrett and Danny Rose that were all thwarted.

With a quarter of an hour left, Cameron Lancaster lifted the ball from the right wing to Pritchard, who hit a shot as the ball bounced, but the keeper was equal to it.  However, with 88 minutes on the clock, Rose raced away and let fly with a shot on goal that the goalie only parried and Pritchard was on hand to cut in past a defender on the left side of the area and curl his effort beyond the reach of the keeper into the opposite corner to grab the late winner.

18.01.2011 Jonathan Woodgate's return to the pitch echoed his last game with a 9-2 win over QPR following his last appearance, when Spurs beat Wigan Athletic 9-1 in the Premier League.

The Spurs XI friendly at Spurs Lodge was perhaps not as high profile, but nonetheless just as important as the central defender makes his comeback from a long-standing groin injury. And the team got off to a flying start with Niko Kranjcar setting up Ryan Mason for the opening goal in the 17th minute, before adding a second himself just four minutes later.  A penalty was converted by QPR to peg Spurs back, but the two goal lead was re-established when Kranjcar took the ball around Radek Cerny and squared it to Robbie Keane to tap home an easy finish.

Giovani struck the crossbar with an effort before Rangers pulled a goal back, but the Mexican produced a deft finish to lift the ball over the QPR keeper to make it 4-2 at half-time.

The second half proceeded in much the same manner with Woodgate and Jamie O'Hara having left the field at the break, with Nathan Byrne hitting a blistering 30 yard shot into the top corner for the best goal of the match to put Spurs 5-2 up.  Keane then produced an assist for Giovanni to net from close range, with Sandro and Kranjcar having good chances before a solo goal from substitute Simon Dawkins made the score 7-2 in the 76th minute.

Two minutes later Robbie Keane's neat execution was added to by substitute Cameron Lancaster's clinical 80th minute finish to wrap up the 9-2 score-line.

11.01.2011 Four goals in the first 20 minutes of this friendly with Crystal Palace at Spurs Lodge set the tone for an attacking match. 

With six minutes gone, Dean Parrett put in a low cross for Cameron Lancaster to slide the ball home, but the lead only lasted two minutes, with Palace equalising.  Lancaster soon put Spurs back in the lead with a diving header at the far post from Tom Carroll's corner and the lead went to 3-1 when Zaine Francis-Angol broke on the left to play Ryan Mason in to break past a static defence and hit the net with just 20 minutes on the clock.

Soon after Ryan Fredericks introduction at half-time, he was brought down in the area and Mason stepped up to convert the penalty to make it 4-1.  With a Mason shot striking the frame of the goal to prevent his hat-trick goal and Mirko Ranieri keeping Palace out at the other end, the game still had plenty of life left in it, as Palace proved by grabbing a late consolation goal to bring the score back to 4-2 at the final whistle.

21.12.2010 Leyton Orient met a Spurs XI at Spurs Lodge to play a four quartered match of 20 minutes per quarter inside the dome at the training ground after a period of bad weather had prevented any match action.

Returning from a loan spell at Ipswich Town, Andros Townsend scored twice  - once inside the first five minutes and then, after Orient had pulled level, he set up Ryan Mason and then netted his second with half an hour gone.  The winger had taken a short corner to Tom Carroll and when he got the ball back, he curled it beyond the O's keeper.  Mirko Ranieri had made a sharp save to keep Orient from making it 2-2 and his replacement was busy in the third quarter, making a very good save to stop the visitors getting back on the score-sheet.

Spurs finished strongly and with 66 minutes gone, Alex Pritchard put Kudus Oyenuga away to race away and lay a square ball into Harry Kane's path for the fourth Tottenham goal.  When Dean Parrett took the ball off the last Orient defender five minutes later, he played in Oyenuga for a goal of his own.  Pritchard and Kane had further chances before the end of the match, but it ended 5-1 to Spurs.

08.12.2010 Tottenham had to recover from losing an early goal and then a late flourish by MK Dons, as they held on to a 4-3 victory in this friendly at Spurs Lodge. 

Three minutes showed on the clock as the League One side took the lead and the Spurs side had to respond quickly, with an equaliser coming in the seventh minute thanks to Cameron Lancaster converting Simon Dawkins' cross.  The striker was on the spot again five minutes after his first goal, when Giovani dos Santos created a good opening for Lancaster to score to give Spurs a 2-1 lead.  That was extended to 3-1  when Dawkins slid home Nathan Byrne's cross in the 17th minute.

Five minutes after half-time a loose ball in the box was controlled and hit home by Michael Dawson, returning from a long injury lay-off, but two dead ball situations in the 73rd and 85th minutes pulled the MK Dons back into the match at 4-3.  Only a good late stop by Stipe Pletikosa preserved Tottenham's winning score-line.

24.11.2010 A Spurs XI beat Ipswich Town 4-1 at Spurs Lodge in a friendly match.

Having found themselves 0-1 behind at half-time, the Spurs team saw two half-time substitutes combine in the 50th minute to create an equaliser.  Zaine Francis-Angol's left wing run and cross was met by Cameron Lancaster to lift a header over the keeper to make it 1-1 and three minutes later, a raking pass from Dean Parrett found a good run by Massimo Luongo to beat the visitor's goalie to turn the game around and put Tottenham ahead.

In the 59th minute, Simon Dawkins took the ball in the area and turned his man to fire home the third Spurs goal, before Nathan Byrne was brought down in the area to provide Harry Kane with the opportunity to convert fro the spot in the 79th minute to end the scoring.

12.10.2010 A young Spurs XI took on a more experienced MK Dons XI at Stadium MK in a friendly and won 3-0.

Striker Kudus Oyenuga opened the scoring in the 35th minute, when he headed home Tom Carroll's inviting cross.  The second goal was a little while in coming, but Nathan Byrne was on the mark in the 76th minute, with Tottenham's third coming shortly after, when two substitutes combined as Cameron Lancaster took Ronnie Hawkins' through pass to shoot home.

29.09.2010 After a goal-less first half, the young Spurs XI turned on the style to run out 4-0 winners over Norwich City at Spurs Lodge in this friendly match.

Tim Sherwood was disappointed with his charges' first half performance and read them the riot act at half-time, so the change in approach was not surprising. 

Oscar Jansson had been required to make a couple of saves in the first half, but Tottenham had efforts on goal  with Jose-Paul Mpoku hitting the woodwork and new Brazilian signing Sandro was unlucky when his attempt on goal was cleared off the line. 

However, five minutes into the second half, Kudus Oyenuga opened the scoring with a simple finish after Harry Kane had taken the ball around the keeper and laid it on for his fellow striker.  The lead was doubled as Nathan Byrne was released after some neat inter-play between Kyle Naughton and Mpoku, leaving the winger to take on two defenders in the penalty area before his cross was headed onto the bar, with the rebound being knocked in by Tom Carroll.

15 minutes from the end, Carroll turned provider and Kane got on the end of his pass to slip the ball past the keeper as he faced up to the forward.  A 4-0 victory was wrapped up in the 83rd minute, as Jesse Waller-Lassen squeezed the ball home from a tight angle.

21.09.2010 A Spurs XI battled back from 0-3 behind to be drawing 3-3 with West Ham United at Spurs Lodge today until the visitors hit a late winner.

West Ham scored within five minutes of the start and got a second five minutes after, having to wait only another minute for the next goal, as they raced into a 3-0 lead with nine minutes on the clock.

However, Tottenham settled down and with 24 minutes gone, Harry Kane reacted quickly to hit the net when Olumide Durojaiye hit a shot that fell at his feet and ten minutes before half-time, midfielder Tom Carroll struck a shot that flew in off the post.

Spurs were thankful that keeper Mirko Ranieri stopped West Ham extending their lead with a  double stop and then the action moved to the other end of the pitch and Kane was in the right place at the right time to poach an equaliser in the 64th minute.  Harry almost won the game for Tottenham with eight minutes left, when his 12 yard goal-bound shot was blocked by an Irons defender, but three minutes later West Ham scored a winning goal that Spurs could not come back from.

15.09.2010 A Tottenham Hotspur XI beat Fulham 3-0 at Spurs Lodge this afternoon. 

Spurs went ahead early on through a Robbie Keane penalty and had to wait until the 82nd minute for the second goal, when Roman Pavlyuchenko scored.   A foul on Harry Kane in the box handed the striker the opportunity to get up and stick the ball away from the penalty spot to complete the scoring in the final minute of the match.

08.09.2010 QPR (home).  Spurs XI friendly.

Spurs put out a strong side of returning injured players and some youngsters, as they beat QPR at Spurs Lodge by three goals to one.

Fielding William Gallas for the first time in a Spurs shirt, he was joined by fit again David Bentley and Jermaine Jenas, as Spurs put together a very good performance to see off the team from West London.

However, it was the away side who went ahead with a 15th minute breakaway goal, although it didn't take long for Tottenham to level when Kudus Oyenuga shot home with the help of a deflection after he had been set up by good work from Jake Livermore and Harry Kane.

Chances flew just wide from Kane twice, Jenas and two Gallas headers from corners, but it took until the second half for Spurs to go ahead.  Kane had gone close twice with one shot hitting the side-netting and a header hitting Oyenuga and bouncing off the goal-post.  Former Spurs keeper Radek Cerny had to be alert to save Bentley's 20 yard effort although he will be disappointed at the goal that gave Spurs the lead, when he was involved in some defensive confusion to allow Kane to run the ball into an empty net.

Oyenuga could have made it three, when he was through on the keeper, but was thwarted, although it did finish 3-1 when Bentley was through, but looked up to unselfishly provide a goal for Massimo Luongo to score from close range.

31.08.2010 Crystal Palace (home).  Spurs XI friendly.

Our Spurs XI put a Crystal Palace side to the sword with an 8-0 friendly victory at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday.

Three first teamers were in the Eagles side, but Tottenham's young side passed well and kept the pressure on to record a big win, started by Jake Livermore's fifth minute goal and Kudus Oyenuga doubled the lead on the quarter hour.  Striker Harry Kane hit the net to make it 3-0 in the 21st minute, with another goal before half-time giving us the lead by four goals at the break.

Straight from the kick-off, Oyenuga hit his second and then Kane went on to add a second half hat-trick to his two first half goals and take the total to eight for the team, whose star player had been defender Kyle Naughton.

25.08.2010 Leicester City (home).  Spurs XI friendly.

Tottenham's selection of reserves and youngsters beat Leicester City in a training ground friendly at a very rainy Spurs Lodge.

Leicester put in a resolute performance, but were opened up by Spurs on a number of occasions, as the players stepped up their fitness to face the new season.

A first half free-kick from Danny Rose hit the post, but Spurs had to wait until the second half for their goals.  Two from Kudus Oyenuga and one from strike partner Harry Kane handed Spurs a 3-0 win with a solid performance.

17.08.2010 Charlton Athletic (home).  Spurs XI friendly.

Spurs Development manager Tim Sherwood was happy with his side's 3-2 win over Charlton Athletic at Spurs Lodge, with his young side showing good application to get the victory over a good Addicks team.

Tottenham went 3-0 ahead, before being pegged back with two late Charlton goals, which their performance deserved, although the game was without a goal at the start of the second half.

It took only three minutes to break the deadlock, with Jon Obika hitting the net from the penalty spot, giving keeper Ross Worner no chance.   Spurs goalkeeper Mirko Ranieri had to be sharp to prevent Charlton equalising in a good period of play for the visitors, before Spurs went 2-0 ahead when a Tom Carroll corner caused confusion and Massimo Luongo fired home the loose ball from inside ten yards in the 67th minute.

70 minutes had gone when Spurs went 3-0 ahead, as Obika scored a fine solo goal, taking the ball from a wide position, beating his opponent on the inside and then curling a shot into the far corner of the net from just inside the box.

Both sides made a few changes and the flow of the game was still going Tottenham's way, but without taking the chances created, Charlton capitalised with Callum Harriott hitting a shot past substitute keeper Jonathan Miles in the 89th minute and then a penalty from Tosan Popo in the last minute of added time gave Charlton another goal to close the score to a respectable 3-2.

11.08.2009 A youthful Spurs XI lost out 1-2 at Sutton United in this pre-season friendly at Green Gander Lane.

Spurs held the ball well and Kudos Oyenuga could have opened the scoring in the seventh minute, with only Sriven to beat, but put his shot wide.  Tottenham took the lead around the half hour mark, when Paul-Jose M'Poku headed Nathan Byrne's near post cross into the Sutton goal after good work by Oyenuga and Dean Parrett.  Anton Blackwood made two well timed tackles as Stefan Payne broke through, but it was two dead ball situations were exploited by the home team to score twice to take the result.

With 62 minutes gone, Kenny Beaney's free-kick was headed home by Payne and with thirteen minutes left, another header, this time by Jason Goodliffe at the far post from Bentley Graham's cross from aclearecd corner proved to be the winner.  In between Sam Cox did well to thwart Bradley Woods-Garness twice in front of goal.

However, the Spurs youngsters didn't give up and Parrett and Ryan Fredericks had opportunities to pull Spurs back level, with Paul McBride going even closer, when Billy Chattaway kicked his effort off the line at the death.

05.08.2009 A Spurs XI crashed to non-league Crawley Town 1-4 at the Broadfield Stadium.

An early penalty set Spurs back, as a melee in the area from a high ball in ended with the ref pointing to the spot after the ball had popped up and hit Jake Nicholson on the arm in the fourth minute.  The ball was dispatched past Jansson, who guessed correctly, but couldn't keep Louis' shot out.

Spurs showed a good response with John Bostock setting up Danny Rose for a first time shot from the edge of the area, which Raynor pushed over the top with a good save.  A well worked free-kick saw Bostock play the bal into Rose, who laid the ball off for Obika to shoot, but a tackle by Giles denied him the shooting opportunity, but then Louis almost added a second when Smith's firm cross was headed goal-wards, but Jansson did well to save in the 15th minute and then a minute later did better when one-on-one with Ademeno and grabbed his shot that was aimed across the keeper.

Cox was beaten by former Spur Michael Malcolm in the 20th minute and his shot was saved by Jansson's fingertips, leaving Nicholson to tidy up the loose ball.  The Tottenham keeper was being kept busy, with a fine save, leaping up to his left to push over substitute Rusk's rising shot with 22 minutes gone.  At last Tottenham gave their defence a break and made ground into Crawley territory, with Rose setting up a chance for Ryan Fredericks, who turned his man, but the defender managed to get something on the shot to take it over the top.  The subsequent corner produced a chance for Rose at the far post, but his header was saved, although he responded to the rebound and crossed fro Jon Obika to put a stooping header over from close range.

The pressure was building on the home side, as Bostock slid a pass through to Obika, but a good challenge from Broadhurst denied him a 27th minute shooting chance, but a minute after, Nicholson's tackle on Ademeno ran to Smith, who hit a precise shot from 25 yards that went just wide of the post.  Once more the game swung to the other end, with Rose crossing to Obika at the near post, but his marker stopped his effort, although the striker reacted well to hit his second shot goal-wards and was disappointed to see it hit the upright and stay out.  Malcolm curled a free-kick wide and then three minutes before the break, Crawley almost doubled their lead.  A good move saw the ball go out wide, before Jansson did well to stop Ademeno's shot, but the loose ball was seized on by Hutchinson, who put his shot against the post.  There was still time for Bostock to pick himself up from being fouled to curl his free-kick past the wall and bring a flying save from Rayner right on half-time.

Crawley kicked off the second half, but it was Tottenham who made the first threat on goal, with Dorian Dervite's ball into Rose allowing the winger to turn his man before feeding Townsend on the left, but the winger's cross was just too far ahead of Paul-Jose M'Poku.  Jansson reacted well to Powell's deflected 55th minute shot and changed direction to push the ball out and then Crawley's substitute goalkeeper Jordan was alert to keep out Bostock's shot a couple of minutes later, but the rebound should have been dispatched into an open goal, but  Lake-Edwards' challenge on Obika was enough to force him to put it wide.

On the hour, Crawley went 2-0 ahead, with some good passing creating a shooting chance for Cogan, who fired home from inside the area and within a minute, the home team scored again, with Louis' header on to Powell, who hit and early shot past Jansson.  Spurs had an opening when M'Poku shot across goal and then the midfielder set up Dean Parrett with a good ball through the defence, only to see the first effort saved and the second hit the side-netting.  With fifteen minutes to go, Crawley extended the lead to 4-0, as Jamie Cook took on Dervite into the box and went around the Spurs goalie before unselfishly passing square to Powell to tap in his second of the night.

Both keepers were active in the closing stages, with Jansson beating away a fierce drive from Cook, who had rounded Blackwood, then Jordan came out to frustrate Parrett as he latched not Harry Kane's through ball.  With four minutes remaining, M'Poku played Andros Townsend into the box and the winger was fouled by Rusk.  Picking himself up, Townsend hit his spot-kick high into the roof of the net to give Spurs a late consolation goal.

28.07.2009 A 3-1 victory gave a young Spurs XI side a good night's work at St. Neot's Town.

When Paul-Jose M'Poku was fouled in the box, Dean Parrett tucked away the resulting penalty in the 15th minute to put Tottenham ahead.  The pressure continued on the home goal, with three efforts coming back off the woodwork before Adam Smith's run on the right wing ended with a cross for M'Poku to net in the 35th minute, making it 2-0 to Spurs.

A goal ten minutes into the second half brought St. Neots back into the game, as they converted when Tottenham failed to clear a free-kick, but the two-goal advantage was soon restored, as Kudos Oyenuga provided Harry Kane with the chance to score.  It could have been a bigger margin, as M'Poku struck the goalpost and the St. Neots keeper did well at the end to keep the score down.

22.07.2009 A Tottenham XI featuring new signing Kyle Naughton, some first teamers and some youngsters lost out to late goals in a 1-3 defeat at Aldershot.

It was a goal within three minutes that gave the Shots the lead, with a good run on the left by Straker ending in a cross for Hylton to fire home with his left foot from a central position in the penalty box. Grant should really have made it 2-0, but he got under Halls' low cross and his shot sailed high over the goal.

Bostock fired a foot or two over with his left foot in the 19th minute after Adel Taarabt had tormented the Aldershot defence, then Hutton raced away downt he right and his shot was pushed out by Jaimez-Ruiz just far enough away from the in-coming Obika not to be able to reach the ball.  Livermore got a header to a Hutton cross, but it hit defender Blackburn and was cleared, before a 35th minute 25 yarder from Dean Parrett forced the Aldershot keeper to dive full length to tip his shot away from goal.  There was one more scare for Spurs in a see-saw first half, as a corner taken by Straker went right across the face of the goal, with Blackburn the nearest to getting a touch on it.

In the second half, it was all Spurs and Rose forced Jaimez-Ruiz into a moment of panic, as his cross had to be pushed over the top and Paul-Jose M'Poku headed a Bostock cross just wide before he had another chance, but hit it too high from 18 yards out.

With the pressure all around the Aldershot goal, perhaps it was a only matter of time before Spurs scored.  The goal finally came in the 75th minute, as a fine run on the right by Naughton produced an inviting cross for Danny Rose to get to the ball near the near post and head in from 10 yards out.

With seven minutes to go, Spurs lost a goal when Connelly somehow managed to score with a shot while he was in the air and with his back to the goal after Hudson's cross found him at the far post.  Mekki had a good chance, but sliced his shot and then in the last minute of normal time, a Donnelly free-kick on the right was swung in and Hinshelwood won the ball in the air, nodding it past Alnwick from eight yards out into the bottom corner to wrap up a 3-1 win.

04.08.2008 Rushden & Diamonds (Away).  Simon Parsell's Testimonial.

A quick start by Rushden and Diamonds rocked the Tottenham XI, but they responded well to come back and take a 4-2 victory in this friendly at Nene Park.

The home side had already missed an acceptable chance when Dean McDonald fluffed getting a decent contact on Lee Phillips' low cross in the second minute, before the provider hit the opening goal in the third minute when the ball fell to him from Ben Alnwick's punch dropped to him near the penalty spot.

Andy Burgess made it 2-0 to R&D two minutes later, when McDonald's low cross fell to the striker and he curved his shot around Alnwick.  However, in the sixth minute, Adel Taarabt turned his marker, Phil Gulliver and picked out a pass to put Tomas Pekhart in, hitting a low shot across keeper Martyn Margason into the corner of the net to pull a goal back.

In an open game, Hutchins smacked a 20 yarder just wide and then Rushden could have gone further ahead when Alnwick did well to keep out a Wooleaston effort, then Ricardo Rocha blocked a Justyn Roberts shot, although the ball dropped kindly to Gulliver, who blasted over the top.  On the half hour, there was another chance for Diamonds, when Alnwick again mis-punched and this time Michael Rankine knocked it wide.

Spurs were forced to re-arrange their defence when Rocha had to leave the play with injury and shortly after, the home crowd howled for a penalty when they felt that Cian Hughton had held McDonald back as he burst into the area, but no award was given.

Hutchins was a bit too aggressive in a two footed challenge on McDonald, which might have seen him pulled up by the referee in a competitive game, but the game continued in a good spirit, with McDonald having a shot deflected wide when it looked as though it might be going in and then Burgess chipped the ball over Alnwick, but also the bar.  With 37 minutes on the clock, Pekhart drew Tottenham level, when Kieran McKenna and Taarabt worked the ball wide to Hutton and crossed for the unmarked Czech striker to head a simple finish.   It was Hutton again a minute later, who, at the end of his run down the left wing, put in a speedy low ball for defender Gareth Jelleyman to fire a volley high past his own keeper to give Spurs the lead.

Tottenham were indebted to goalkeeper Ben Alnwick, who stopped Burgess' shot with his legs after good play with McDonald and before the half-time whistle, Spurs owed gratitude to the bar when Rankine got around Hughton and hit a drive across Alnwick, but was foiled by the bar.  At the other end, Gulliver had to make a last-ditch tackle to stop Hutchins getting his shot away.

Spurs made three changes at the break and following Clive Allen's team-talk came out looking more compact.  Six minutes into the half, Tottenham established a 4-2 lead, with Pekhart completing his hat-trick.  Taarabt passed wide to Olsen on the right wing and his cross found Tomas bursting between two defenders to make sure his determination took him to the ball first and taking the ball into the roof of the net from ten yards out.

In the 55th minute, Rushden had a chance to get back into the game and this time a penalty was awarded when Archibald-Henville was adjudged to have jumped over Rankine's back.  It looked a harsh decision, but it mattered for little when Phillips stepped up to shoot wide from the spot.  Just a minute later, the crowd were calling for another spot-kick, but this time Hutchins' challenge on Rankine was deemed to be outside the box.

Round the hour mark, Taarabt had a good chance, but tried one more step-over and Osano robbed him of the opening and the young Frenchman was on the receiving end of a number of "heavy" challenges, as the non-leaguers tried to stop his skilful runs.  Curtis Osano broke forward into the area to hit a shot wide in the 69th minute, while ten minutes later, Tottenham's sub Alex Olsen ran onto Dorian Dervite's pass and hit a shot wide from a narrow angle.  With changes made on both sides, the game settled down towards the end and the last opportunity came with seven minutes to go, Dervite's header out of defence allowed Hutton to get away from Jamie McGuiness and only a good stop from Margarson denied the midfielder a well-deserved goal.

29.07.2008 Aldershot (Away)

A well deserved 3-1 win saw the Spurs XI back on track at the expense of Aldershot Town, who were newly promoted to the Football League.

Seven minutes in, Shots keeper Bull stopped Tomas Pekhart with a block, but a minute later Danny Rose fed the ball wide right to Pekhart and his low ball was pulled back into the path of the on-running Alan Hutton, who fired his shot past the keeper to make it 1-0 to Tottenham.

Twenty minutes into the game, John Bostock moved well to get into a shooting position and Bull beat out his shot, but the ball ran loose and Pekhart showed a striker's instinct to poach the second Tottenham goal from close range.  Ten minutes later, Andy Barcham stood up a cross to the far post and Bull failed to hold it, dropping the ball that nearly went into the goal off defender Straker.  It was Barcham who, on 35 minutes, drilled a shot past Bull from inside the box.  0-3 down, the home side almost got one back when Hylton took the ball through and around David Button, but could not put the ball into the net from a tight angle.

A similar chance presented itself to Soares just after the hour, but his shot was straight at Button, although his opposite number, the Aldershot substitute keeper Jaimez-Ruiz messed up a Howell back-pass and was luckily judged to have kicked the ball away from in front of the goal-line, but it seemed as though it might have crossed it.  The ball fell to David Hutton, but he slashed the ball wide of the target.

New signing John Bostock showed his asset of pace, by sprinting through the Shots defence and missed the target by inches.  Two minutes after, with 76 minutes gone, Button fumbled a high cross to Hylton, who took the ball down and knocked the ball home form close range to pull a goal back.  The same player almost hit another, but struck his effort into the side-netting, while Soares lashed a late shot wide from inside the penalty area with four minutes left.

22.07.2008 The Spurs XI that travelled away to Crawley Town found a hungry non-league side in wait and suffered  a 1-6 defeat.

The young Tottenham side were under pressure from the start and both Danny Forrest and Lewis Killeen could have scored before Chris Giles hit the bar with a 21st minute header from a free-kick.   Four minutes later, former Spurs junior Isaiah Rankin held off Calum Butcher to run onto a long ball and score from ten yards out.  On 33 minutes, defender Cian Hughton jumped underneath a cross from Forrest and Jamie Cook had the easy task of knocking the ball in at the far post.

Spurs made chances for Charlie Daniels and Danny Hutchins, as well as Ryan Mason's effort made goalkeeper Nicky Morgan produce a save  before half-time.

Into the second half, Andy Barcham lost control of the ball as he tried to go around Morgan, but seven minutes into the half, he finished well after a Yuri Berchiche through ball allowed him to beat a defender and net from eight yards out with 52 minutes on the clock.

Barcham was the pick of the Spurs players and forced a save from Morgan after 56 minutes, but six minutes later, Crawley went 3-1 ahead.  Forrest did well to get in a cross and Killeen beat Lee Butcher to the ball and it looped up into the goal.  This was when heads started to drop and some hesitant defending from a corner allowed Glenn Wilson to shoot in for 4-1, before Crawley wrapped up their big win in the final ten minutes.

Killeen fired in a shot from the edge of the box and then Cook repeated his first goal with another tap-in to round off a 6-1.

16.07.2008 A Spurs XI opened their pre-season programme with a 2-1 win over St. Albans City at Clarence Park

Two first half goals from David Hutton and Alex Olsen saw Tottenham overcome some early pressure by the Saints, but Kyle Fraser-Allen's long ball deceived home keeper Paul Bastock, leaving Hutton the opportunity to lob home from the edge of the penalty area in the sixth minute.

Olsen made it 2-0 on 24 minutes, when Hutton played the ball to Danny Hutchins on the left wing and the cross found the Norwegian striker at the far post.

Chances to extend the lead fell to Fraser-Allen and Kevin Prince Boateng, but the half time score was 2-1, as Hassan Sulaiman beat Yuri Berchiche on the right wing, crossing for St. Albans City forward Simon Martin to bundle the ball across the line at the far post just before the interval.

The second half started with several Spurs players replaced and they took the game to the home side and Andy Barcham, Saulo Asajile and David Hutton all went close.  The late pressure came from the City side, with the Tottenham crossbar being rattled 15 minutes from time by a header from Rod Hicks.

01.05.2008 Ipswich Town (Home).  

A behind closed doors friendly at White Hart Lane saw a late Ipswich surge take them to a 3-1 win.

An early change saw Alex Olsen come on for the injured Tomas Pekhart after four minutes, but Spurs adapted well and he scored the opener when through on the keeper in the 38th minute.  Defenders kept Tottenham out in the second half, when David Hutton flighted corners in for Calum Butcher and Troy Archibald-Henville to head goal-wards, only to see their efforts blocked on the line.

However, despite being in the ascendancy, Ipswich forced Lee Butcher to a good save as the game came up to the hour mark and then Liam Trotter (78), Reggie Lambe (81) and Jordan Roberts (83) scored the goals to give the Tractor Boys a big, if flattering, winning margin.

16.07.2007 Dartford (Away)

A Spurs XI scored a big win over non-League Dartford at their new Princes Park ground, by turning around at half-time 6-0 up.

Adel Taarabt was set up by a good run by Phil Ifil and he buried his 25 yard shot to give Tottenham an 11th minute lead and then the French midfielder turned provider when he put a corner onto Leigh Mills' head to ram home the second just seven minutes later.  It was another seven minutes until the lead became 3-0, with Lee Barnard looping his header in from Jamie O'Hara's cross.  Before that goal, Ryan Hayes dipped a shot over Tommy Forecast, but it bounced off the underside of the bar and Jay May's follow up header was tipped over by the Spurs keeper.  From the corner, Brendan Cass flicked a header past Forecast, but Ifil was on the post to head off the goal-line.

On the half hour, O'Hara was once more behind the fourth Tottenham goal, as he pulled a low cross back for Jake Livermore to slam home from just inside the penalty area.  Cass hit the woodwork once more with another header against the post, but a minute later, O'Hara and Daniels linked on the left to provide Andy Barcham the chance to knock home the 33rd minute goal from inside the six yard box to make it 5-0.

Barcham produced a classy finish, when O'Hara and Taarabt made space for O'Hara to roll a pass into the path of the diminutive striker, who curled it out of Kebbell's reach from 20 yards.  This was four minutes before the break, but the goalie had produced good stops to keep out Taarabt, Jacques Maghoma and Troy Archibald-Henville.  Just before the interval, Jamie O'Hara nearly scored the goal of the season, when his 60 yard shot caught Kebbell out of his goal and the ball bounced back out off the crossbar, with Barnard's effort pushed over the bar.

A brisk start after the break saw Ifil strike a far post volley which McClements cleared off the line and then Livermore and David Hutton forced more good stops from second half keeper James Tedder.  At the other end, the Spurs goalie tipped Cass' effort over the top and then May reduced the deficit when he did well to net McClements' cross on 67 minutes.  However, just two minutes later, Taarabt opened up the home defence with an astute pass to Livermore and the tall midfielder cut the ball back from the dead ball line for Charlie Daniels drove home to make it 7-1.  The game was all but won, but Dartford kept plugging away and got a further goal in the 81st minute, as Osbourne played McClements in and he barged through to hit the back of the net from 16 yards.

There was still time for Taarabt to give O'Hara the chance to add to the total, but he curled it off target and then the young Londoner forced Tedder into a save from a quick free-kick.

14.11.2006 Spurs Reserves travelled to Lens to meet the bulk of their first team in a friendly match.

Lens showed their experience by setting the tempo of the match and scored early on, making it tough for Spurs to get a foothold in the match.  However, the team settled well and started to pass the ball well, using the pace in the side to good effect.  Simon Dawkins and Andy Barcham scored breakaway goals and then Tomas Pekhart struck a third after the interval, leaving Lens battling to get back into the match.  They got one goal back, but Tottenham defended their lead well enough to keep the winning score-line until the end.

10.01.2002 Spurs reserve side recorded a 4-1 friendly win over Dover last night.

Steffen Iversen, who has been out injured for most of the season, scored Tottenham's opener just before half-time, netting from close range to finish off good work by Oyvind Leonhardsen. 

Dover levelled through former Spurs youngster Neil Le Bihan, who scored from the penalty spot just after the break, but just before Iversen was substituted, he laid on a chance for captain John Piercy to shoot Tottenham back into the lead.  It was Iversen's replacement, John Sutton, who gave Spurs a 3-1 advantage when he scored on the rebound after Dover keeper Phil Smith could only push out Ghyslain Vedeux's shot.  It was left to Yannick Kamanan to score the fourth in the closing stages to put the seal on a good win.

04.08.1998 Spurs Reserves travelled to Nuneaton Borough for a friendly and returned with a 2-0 victory.

Malcolm Christie tested the Spurs defence early on and could have grabbed a goal from the chances he had, but it was James Bunn who put Tottenham ahead, when he finished off Ross Darcy's cross a minute before the break.

Home side's Ian Muir almost equalised, but his effort was stopped in front of goal, but early into the second half, Tottenham extended the lead with a strike from Australian Carlos Gonzales.

Nuneaton were awarded a penalty with eight minutes remaining, but Anton Thomas' shot was kept out by keeper Andy Marriott.
