24.02.2009 Spurs won this meeting with West Ham United at Bishops Stortford FC in the Premier League Reserve League thanks to an Adel Taarabt hat-trick.

An early warning, when Junior Stanislas fired wide was not heeded by the Spurs defence and in the fifth minute, Anthony Edgar took Zavon Hines' cross and put the ball past Alnwick at the post.  However, without being involved for the first ten minutes, Taarabt got the ball in the middle of the pitch, ran at defenders - leaving them in his wake - and rifled a low shot into the bottom corner of the goal from the edge of the box past an unmoved Marek Stech in goal to make it 1-1.

Two minutes after the goal, Irons defender Matthew Fry mis-contolled the ball and it rant o Kudos Oyenuga, who fired a shot into the side-netting.  With 15 minutes gone, Taarabt hit a shot just wide from the edge of the box, as he was starting to enjoy himself and Ricardo Rocha joined the attack to head a corner at goal, only for Stech to keep his effort out. 

Cian Hughton and Jacques Maghoma linked on the left to provide the French youngster with a shooting opportunity from 18 yards in the 18th minute, which Stetch put over the top, while Taarabt went close again a couple of minutes after.  West Ham fought back into the game and when Tom Harvey passed to Edgar on the edge of the box, his shot from the edge of the six yard box in the 22nd minute was saved by Ben Alnwick.

From a corner, Harvey's effort on goal was stopped on the line by Danny Hutchins and then the Irons' Stanislas hit a shot on goal in the 26th minute, with Alnwick needing to push it round after taking a couple of deflections before it got to him.  Spurs came strong at the end of the half, with Yaser Kasim taking the ball on after the ref played an advantage for a foul on Taarabt, playing in Oyenuga to shoot too high and then Takura Mtandari got wide and crossed for Taarabt, but he could only shoot straight at Stech.  There was still time for Hughton to go on a good run, but fired over the bar from 20 yards just before the break.

West Ham had the first chance of the second half, with centre half Fry heading Stanilslas' free-kick against the post on 48 minutes and on 75 minutes, Edgar was sent clear, only to be denied by Alnwick, who stood up well.  West Ham substitute Daniel Kearns had a shot that went just wide of the post.

But, seven minutes from time, Taarabt won the ball, ran at the Irons back four and from the edge of the box planted the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

West Ham tried to get level with a Fry header that Alnwick did well to dive and palm out, but it was Taarabt who had the last word, firing home from the penalty spot in stoppage time after David Hutton had been brought down to seal the 3-1 win.

03.11.2008 West Ham United made the short trip to visit Brisbane Road in the Premier League Reserve League and Spurs won out 2-0.

The Irons keeper was soon in action, with a third minute save as Kevin-Prince Boateng met a Charlie Daniels cross at the near post, but as play moved to the opposite end, Jacques Maghoma was in the right place to clear Widdowson's low shot off the line after Reid had crossed from the left wing.

Chances were created at both ends, with Boateng volleying over Gilberto's eighth minute cross and West Ham hitting the side netting when Reid cut in from the left wing and struck a low 25-yard effort.  A sharp finish to Gilberto's saved shot in the 21st by Daniels was ruled out for offside and the first half finished goal-less.

Spurs changed things around and two minutes into the second period, Street had to be alert to push Hossam Ghaly's shot from 25 yards out around the post.  Another good chance was spurned in the 51st minute, as Boateng intercepted a back-pass and unselfishly laid the ball into the path of Kyle Fraser-Allen, who blasted over from 10 yards out.  The goal came just a couple of minutes later, when a corner from the left wing dropped for Mtandari to stand up a cross into the heart of the penalty area and Boateng was first to it with his head.  Street did well to stop the powerful header, but the rebound dropped to Charlie Daniels to tap in, without a linesman's flag this time. 

Five minutes later, Daniels was on the score-sheet again, getting the ball on the edge of the centre circle, taking on a couple of West Ham players and drilling a low shot into the left corner of the net to make it 2-0.

Paul Stalteri took on his marker on the right wing and put in a cross low to the near post ten minutes after the second goal, where Fraser-Allen mis-hit his shot, but got a second bite of the cherry and forced a good stop from Street, who was lucky in the 69th minute, when Hutton's corner escaped Ghaly six yards out and was missed at the far post by Mtandari, who slipped over.  It was West Ham's turn to attack in the next minute, as Spence hit a hopeful high ball into the Spurs area and when Cesar came over Bajner to punch clear it only fell to Harvey, who hit his shot too high.

When Daniels fired in a low curving cross in the 71st minute, it was somehow missed by both Dervite and Mtandari and then West Ham broke with Harvey's cross being put wide by Bajner, who glanced his header instead of getting some power on it.  Another header two minutes from time saw Cesar make a fine save in glancing Lopez's effort over the bar.  The resulting corner was headed over by the same player and that was the last chance that saw Spurs take the spoils.

25.02.2008 The two London sides met at Leyton Orient FC and it was West Ham Reserves who took the points, winning 3-1 with a strong side.

Spurs had the first couple of chances in the match, with Danny Rose rising to head Cian Hughton's cross over the top and Simon Dawkins was played in by Jon Obika and he hit his shot just wide of the target.  West Ham's first chance came in the 17th minute, as Ashton put a header from six yards wide from Pantsil's cross.  Bobby Zamora almost tricked Hughton with a lob over his head, but he could not control his volley once he got the other side of the defender and Ashton once more won the ball in the air, this time near the penalty spot and it went a couple of feet past the post.

Somewhat against the run of play, Tottenham took the lead in the 34th minute.  A free kick on the right was played in by Danny Rose and Troy Archibald-Henville jumped for it, but the ball swung straight into the net to give the winger the goal.  A minute later, Dawkins and David Hutton linked up to allow the striker a shot on goal, but the players around him made it difficult for him to get any power in his shot and Walker saved easily.

Just before the interval, the Irons equalised when Freddie Sears capitalise don Reid's complete air shot and finished Ashton's cross with a low drove past Button to see the sides level at the break.

Joe Martin prevented Hines knocking in Sears low ball into the box and then Ashton failed to convert Pantsil's cross, causing Button no problems to save.  The Spurs keeper had to stretch to keep the ball out as Sears tried to lob him and in the 69th minute, the keeper was beaten when Sears provided Ashton with a chance that Ashton finally netted from inside the six yard box.  It was only three minutes before it was 3-1 Stokes fed Sears and he took the ball on the run to slide it past the Button as he came out.

Parrett almost found Obika before Pantsil nudged the ball away, while late on Ryan Mason put a free-kick over the bar and then mis-hit a shot that Walker dropped on to make a comfortable stop and preserve the 3-1 scoreline.

20.02.2007 A Premier Reserve League South match played at Bishops Stortford FC saw Spurs win 2-0.

it was a quick start by Tottenham who took a 2-0 lead within the first 17 minutes of the match.  Captain Charlie Lee was playing in central midfield and his effect was immediate, with a run into the box to finish off Phil Ifil's cross from 10 yards after good work from Adel Taarabt and David Hutton.  Lee was instrumental in the second goal, winning the ball in midfield and then putting Hutton away to cross in for Jake Livermore to shoot home.

Taarabt hit a 25 yard shot just wide and West Ham keeper Jimmy Walker denied Charlie Daniels' effort after Emil Halfredsson played him in.  As the half came to an end, Ben Alnwick had to be on his toes to keep out Lee Hales' shot.

Shortly after the break, Alnwick stopped Lorcan Fitzgerald as he ran through one-on-one, but he was finally beaten when Freddie Sears reduced the defecit in the 59th minute.  However, Spurs held out to win the game.
