01.10.2021 Spurs Under-23s had a disappointing away trip to Crystal Palace’s training ground, where they shared seven goals, but Palace took more than their fair share.

It took Palace just five minutes to go ahead with central defender Jay Rich-Baghuelou heading in Jesurun Rak-Sakyi’s cross giving the impetus to the home side who nearly made it 2-0 moments later, but Tobi Omole produced an excellent tackle to avert the danger.  Rak-Sakyi did find the net after 13 minutes, when he got around Kallum Cesay and drilled in a shot at Josh Oluwayemi’s near post. 

Tottenahm almost reduced the lead straight away with Dilan Markanday’s shot producing a fine save from Palace keeper Joe Whitworth and that was followed by some desperate defending by the home side having to clear efforts from Alfie Devine off the line and Jack Clarke’s shot was deflected onto the post.  Palace had a couple of good openings before they went 3-0 up when Rob Street got the ball in the Spurs half, went forward and curled a shot beyond Oluwayemi’s reach with only 24 minutes on the clock.

Whitworth was made to work when he had to save from Harvey White and Markanday, but just before half-time, Yago Santiago did well on the left wing to pull the ball back to Devine, who found the net from close range.  Having pulled a goal back, the Spurs players had a different mind-set in the second half and in the 56th minute, Devine’s glancing header was only denied by the goalpost, but it came to Tottenham’s aid a minute later, when Markanday’s curler went in off the upright.

With the game swinging Tottenham’s way, we levelled the score at 3-3 just two minutes later as Dilan Markanday made good progress into the area and then had the presence of mind to play the ball into the path of Kallum Cesay, who bent a shot into the bottom corner of the net. However, a free-kick conceded on the edge of the Spurs area was curled in by Scott Banks to hand Palace a lead they retained to the end, despite Cesay having a couple of shots after being pushed forward, but they failed to hit the target and Spurs were left ruing their comeback that slipped away from them.

20.11.1976 Tottenham’s reserves took a 1-0 lead at White Hart Lane against Crystal Palace, but could not hold out for the win.

Roger Wade and Noel Brotherston worked a shooting opportunity for Neil McNab form the right of the goal at an acute angle and the Scot found the net to allow Spurs to go ahead.  A dominant performance in the first half should have built up a bigger lead, but in the second half Palace seized on a defensive lapse to grab an equaliser.

15.11.1975 Crystal Palace visited White Hart Lane and departed with a Football Combination point after holding Spurs Reserves to a goal-less draw.

An inexperienced forward line could not convert the opportunities a hard-working Tottenham team created, but the team of teenagers gave a good account of themselves.

The woodwork came in for a battering in the match, with Palace’s Paul HInshelwood striking it twice and after half-time, Kevin Stead’s shot rebounded back off the post and in trying to clear the ball Eagles defender John Love almost put through his own goal.

Spurs almost pulled off a late win when Noel Brotherston screwed a shot just wide of the Palace goal.

03.04.1971

Crystal Palace Reserves took an early lead to shock Spurs Reserves into action and go on to a big win in this Football Combination meeting at White Hart Lane.

Roy Woolcott pulled Spurs level before half time and then in the second half, Tottenham turned in a very good performance to go on to win.

Phil Holder’s half-volley early in the second period put Spurs ahead and then a brace from John Cutbush gave them breathing space before a trip on Roy Woolcott gave Ray Bunkell the opportunity to score the fifth goal from the penalty spot to make the final score 5-1.
