05.11.2021 Brighton’s Under-23s held Spurs to a 1-1 away draw in the Premier League 2 on a Friday night in Lancing.

It took Brighton five minutes to go in front, with Jack Spong’s free-kick finding the top corner of Thimothee Lo-Tuala’s goal, but the keeper reacted well to keep out Todd Miller’s raking shot and from the corner Ed Turns headed narrowly wide, as Brighton forced the early pace.  Spurs started to find their form and a mazy dribble by Dilan Markanday set up Yago Santiago with 30 minutes gone, but his resulting shot was straight at the Seagulls 6′ 8″ keeper Kjell Scherpen from six yards out.

Scherpen had to be alert to save well from a Nile John shot that deflected off Turns and another deflection denied Markanday after his measured shot destined for the bottom corner went just wide  Dilan was not to be kept out and in the 50th minute, Harvey White found him with a pass to the right corner of the Brighton box and he pinged a low shot across the keeper to level the score.

The goal helped swing the game in Tottenham’ favour, with a lot of possession and chances came for Brooklyn Foster-Lyons who shot over, Nile John struck the post and Scherpen had to scramble the ball around the post when Kallum Cesay’s shot came off Turns.  Yago Santiago drew a near post save from the keeper before Malachi Fagan-Walcott headed just wide.  Brighton sub Cameron Peupion’s pace torubled Spurs and Tobi Omole did well to take the sting out of a shot from him after he raced forward. 

Still Spurs pressed forward and Marcel Lavinier got forward to hit a couple of shots, but Jack Clarke was having more influence and nearly scored in the 72nd minute when he saw his shot through a number of players come out off the foot of the post.  Both teams had late chances, with Clarke driving a shot over the bar and the Seagulls missed their opportunity in added time, when Peupion’s cross was headed wide by Andy Moran that left both sides with a point from the match.

08.04.1989 White Hart Lane welcomed Brighton & Hove Albion Reserves but were beaten 7-1 by Tottenham in the Football Combination.

Gary Stevens’ 25 yard effort with his left foot gave Tottenham the lead, with a diving header giving the former Brighton man his second goal, converting Paul Moran’s cross.  Before half-time, David Howells made it 3-0 as he lobbed Vinny Samways diagonal ball over the Brighton keeper.

Another diving header to a Moran cross, this time by Ian Gilzean, made it four and a Moran header added another.  A clever ball clipped over the Brighton back four by Vinny Samways sent Moran in on goal and his well-taken half-volley ripped into the net to make the score 6-0.  Moran had terrorised the Seagulls defence and a foul on him in the box allowed Gary Stevens to complete his hat-trick from the spot.

Spurs v Brighton and Hove Albion Youth Match Reports

.
17.09.2022 Spurs Under-18s beat their Brighton counterparts 3-0 at Hotspur Way in the Premier U18 League with a late goal burst in the final 11 minutes.

The visitors had a couple of openings in the first half as the two teams cancelled each other out for the majority of the first 45 minutes.  Remeiro Moulton put in a quick cross across the face of goal with no team-mate on the end of it and the same player missed the target from just inside the box.

With six minutes of the second half gone, Brighton appealed for a penalty when Archie Chaplin challenged Fuller in the penalty area, but there was no award from the referee and the game progressed as it had done previously until the 79th minute.  Substitute Tyrese Hall supplied the assist for Oliver Irow to find the net from the left of the goal ten yards out. 

The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Brighton and Spurs grew from that point.  We had to wait until two minutes from time for the second goal, with Thomas Bloxham coming off the bench to claim a goal that deflected off Gulzar to loop over the keeper and into the goal after he got on the end of an Max Moore right wing cross.  Things got better for Tottenham in the 90th minute, when the high press caused the ball to be turned over by Brighton and Max Moore ran past four defenders to finish with a left-footed shot across the keeper, who got a hand to it but couldn’t keep to out to wrap up a 3-0 win.

Teams :
Spurs :-  Luca Gunter (c), Max McKnight, Jaziah Linton (Maeson King 76), Archie Chaplin, Will Andiyapan, George Abbott  , Riley Owen (Thomas Bloxham 74), Han Willhoft-King  (Tyrese Hall 46), Oliver Irow, Callum Olusesi (Brandon Bryan-Waugh 60), Max Moore (James Rowswell 90+1)

06.11.2021 Brighton’s Under-18s visited Hotspur Way in the Under-18 Premier League, but left without any joy as Spurs won 2-1.

A scramble following Maxwell McKnight’s shot that came back off the bar failed to bring Spurs a goal that would have been just reward for their dominant opening.  What followed from the resulting corner was a clearance off the line by Hinshelwood and Jaden Williams fired in a shot that keeper Fynn Talley did well to stop.  Renaldo Torraj shot Spurs ahead with a dart in from the left wing to hit the top right-hand corner to make it 1-0 with 36 minutes on the clock.  In added time at the end of the first half, Hinshelwood volleyed over the bar and Luca Gunter did well to push aside a shot that gained pace off the turf.

The second half started with Brighton attacking, but again Hinshelwood was off target, this time with a header, but Spurs went further ahead when Jamie Donley sent Kyerematen through to lift the ball out of the keeper’s reach to give Spurs a 2-0 lead in the 52nd minute.  Brighton came back at Spurs and an effort by Jack Gee four minutes after the goal hit the bar and a goal from a Jaami Quereshi was disallowed for offside in the 58th minute.  Five minutes later, Brighton did reduce the deficit when a free-kick into the Spurs box caused a melee in which Luca Gunter appeared to have been impeded, but Hinshelwood put the ball into the net to get Brighton on the score-sheet. 

The Seagulls pressed for a second goal, but chances for Samy Chouchane and Elliot Jenks both went wide, while at the other end, Kyerematen and Thomas Bloxham brought saves from the Brighton keeper before the end.

Teams :
Spurs :-  Luca Gunter, Brandon Bryan-Waugh, Will Andiyapan, Dante Cassanova (c)  21, Alfie Dorrington  45, Archie Chaplin, Maxwell McKnight, Rio Kyerematen, Jaden Williams (Thomas Bloxham 79), Jamie Donley, Renaldo Torraj (Khalon Haysman 68),

16.08.1997 Spurs Juniors travelled to the South Coast to play beat Brighton and Hove Albion at the University of Sussex ground in the SE Counties Division 2 and won the match 3-0.

Having started well, Spurs had to wait until the 35th minute to take the lead with Luke Bauckham picking off a pass and advancing to the 12 yard mark to beat the keeper.  The same player was involved in the second goal, winning a header at the near post to direct it across goal and give Ledley King an easy header into the net from six yards out.

Several other opportunities had been created before the third Tottenham goal, which came from a Nicky Hunt right wing cross that was stuck past his own goalkeeper by a Seagulls defender.

01.04.1995 SECL Division 2    Home     Lost     1-3.

Tottenham’s juniors dominated the match for long periods but ended up losing 1-3 to Brighton & Hove Albion.

The first half was particularly frustrating, as Spurs made a lot of chances that they did not take, so it was against the run of play when Brighton went ahead just before half-time, scoring from the penalty spot.

An equaliser came for Spurs straight after the restart when Simon Webb ran through to fire in a shot that beat the keeper at his near post, but the Seagulls capitalised on sloppy defending with two goals in ten minutes when Spurs looked as though they might take the game.

Teams : –
Spurs : – Alan Marriott, Ross Outram, Simon Webb, Tully, Darren Davies, Mark Janney, Evans, Alan Mannix (Lee Kersey 75), Julian Delicata (Warrington 60), Sammy Winston, Shane Samways

31.08.1988 Winning by the odd goal in three, Spurs Juniors recorded a fine 2-1 home win over Brighton & Hove Albion’s Juniors.

It was a young Spurs side that gave a good report of themselves in a game against an older Brighton team, but despite playing some neat passing football, it was the Seagulls who took the lead against the run of play.  A penalty given for a foul on Lee Fulling in the penalty box allowed Tottenham to equalise with Warren Hackett confidently sticking it away.  It was the same pairing who linked for the winning goal a minute from time when Fulling crossed for Hackett to plant a far post header into the net.

06.11.1972 Brighton & Hove Albion Youth     Southern Junior Floodlit Cup First Round replay     Home (WHL)     Won     3-2

Spurs Youth beat Brighton and Hove Albion Youth in the First Round replay in the Southern Junior Floodlit Cup on a Monday night at White Hart Lane.

It was not an easy win for Tottenham against a feisty Brighton team, coming back from a 23rd minute opener by Gary Mabee to level through a Tony Towner header.  Spurs went in at the break 2-1 ahead thanks to Danny Clapton’s goal.

The second half saw the Tottenham lead extended when Chris Jones scored halfway through the half, but the Seagulls narrowed the gap with another Towner goal and then almost grabbed an equaliser as they went close twice towards the end of the 90 minutes.
