20.04.2024 Tottenham’s Under-18s drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace at Copers Cope with the Eagles having been reduced to ten men.

Spurs could have gone ahead in the fifth minute, when Maeson King crossed to an unmarked Yusuf Akhamrich, who could only volley his shot over the bar.  That allowed Crystal Palace’s Asher Agibonne put them ahead in the 11th minute.  He had given Spurs a warning two minutes before, when he came in off the left, but could only find keeper Elliot Krasniqi with his effort, but when the opportunity offered itself again, he beat the keeper with a curling effort inside the near post.  The same player was getting plenty of the ball and brought another save out of Krasniqi two minutes after the goal with a drive from a narrow angle.

Akhamrich produced an action replay of his earlier miss in the 17th minute and Palace failed to make the most of their dominance, seeing two efforts cleared off the goal-line by Archie Baptiste and Maeson King.

The second half was a different proposition with Spurs becoming more organised.  It brought more confidence and Leo Black typified this with a 55th minute run at the heart of the Palace defence resulting in a shot that saw Eastwood in the home goal have to make his first save of the match.  He was then worked again by Damola Ajayi, whose shot from outside the box needed saving before his close-range shot caught a deflection that took it wide.

A second booking in the second half for Palace’s captain Joe Gibbard for stopping a quick free-kick being taken saw the Eagles down to ten men and it cost his side two points, as a Leo Black corner came into the box and the ball was flicked into his own net by Cormac Austin to make the score 1-1. 

Crystal Palace re-organised and made it difficult for Spurs to find a winner and the closest that they came was through two shots from King and Ajayi that went narrowly over the top in added time.

26.11.2022 The Under-18 meeting with Crystal Palace at Copers Cope ended in a 3-1 win for Spurs and the young Eagles finishing with ten men.

Although Palace were in the ascendancy in the first few minutes, their best chance from Junior Dixon’s effort was cleared off the line by Alfie Dorrington, but when Jaden Williams drifted in off the right wing to find Tyrese Hall in the box, his cross was aimed at Will Lankshear, but deflections made sure it didn’t reach him, but unfortunately for Palace it dropped for Jamie Donley to find the net inside the far post. 

That goal came after nine minutes, but it only took a minute to double the lead when Luca Gunter played the ball out from the back and it went through Rio Kyerematen, who freed Lankshear to square the ball into the path of Williams, who knocked the ball in at the far post.

After 19 minutes, Palace pulled a goal back and it came when Kpohra eased through the Spurs defence and slotted a left foot shot into the bottom corner.  Pressing for an equaliser, Jake Grante got an effort on goal after a free-kick that Dorrington blocked, but the impetus was lost when home keeper Jackson Izquierdo took Donley out, 15 yards outside of his box and was shown a red card.  His replacement Laurie Shala had to make a sharp save to keep out George Abbott’s 20 yard shot and the keeper was relieved to see the linesman’s flag go up when Damola Ajayi’s shot was put in by Donley at the far post.

Fifteen minutes after the break, Spurs went 3-1 ahead as a through ball from Will Andiyapan allowed Donley to find space on the left and he put the ball across for Lankshear to thump it past Shala as he arrived in the box on the right.  Despite their reduced numbers, Palace kept pressing and Adler Nascimento pulled a shot just over the top, while both he and Asher Agbinone brought good stops out of Gunter, although we went close to extending the lead with Dorrington, Donley and sub Yusuf Akhamrich before seeing the game out to take the three points.

03.09.2022 Spurs slipped to a 0-3 defeat at Selhurst Park to Crystal Palace Under-21s in the Premier League 2 with all the goals scored by John-Kymani Gordon in the first half.

Operating a high pressing game, Palace picked off a loose pass from Marqes Muir and after exchanging passes with Omibalu, Gordon beat Aaron Maguire with a prodded effort through the keeper’s legs with just six minutes gone.  Tottenham’s response came from a goof move that ended with a Kallum Cesay effort from outside the box with his left foot that bounced off the keeper’s left-hand post and out.  Wells-Morrison had gone close firing a low shot just wide after Spurs failed to adequately clear an attack, but Palace doubled their lead just after the half-hour with Omibalu pulling a ball back in front of goal and Gordon sweeping a half-volley in from near the penalty spot after a good move down their right wing. 

Straight away, Harvey White pressed Grehan on the edge of the Eagles’ box and took possession, but Goodman raced out to block the midfielder’s shot.  With Spurs trying to play out from the back, the ball was won by the home side 35 yards from goal and played in to Akinwale in acres of space in front of goal, but his low shot was kept out well by Maguire’s foot, only for the ball to run to his right, where Gordon was on hand to drive it past the keeper and Alfie Dorrington to wrap up his hat-trick.

Nile John’s pass through the lines found Yago Santiago, who slipped Jamie Donley into the right of the area and his shot beat the keeper, but also beat the far post, evading the defenders lunge in front of goal that might have diverted it in just before the break.

In the second period, John dragged a shot a couple of feet wide from 20 yards following the second phase from a corner, then the midfielder turned a square pass from Santiago just to the left of the keeper’s goal from the 18 yard line.  It was Spurs who were pressing hard now and when Santiago won the ball on the left, it was moved across by Cesay, who was tackled.  Donley won it back for Romaine Mundle to drive a shot at goal from outside the box that had Goodman stretching to knock the ball up in the air to be able to collect it when it came down.

Cesay’s cross-field pass to Mundle saw the ball laid back and it came through to Santiago in the middle of the box.  He took it to his right, but his shot was blocked by the keeper, who had a couple of defenders behind him.

Teams :
Crystal Palace : –  Owen Goodman, Kaden Rodney, Sean Grehan, Kofi Balmer  , Noah Watson, David Ozoh, Jack Wells-Morrison  , David Omilabu (Cardo Siddik 84), Killian Phillips, John-Kymani Gordon, Victor Akinwale (Ademola Ola-Adebomi 72).

07.02.2022 Hit by injuries, loans out of the club and players being suspended, Tottenham’s Under-23s lost out 1-4 to Crystal Palace at Hotspur Way in the Premier League 2.

Just a minute into the game, the Spurs defence were indecisive in trying to clear the ball, which Scott Banks fired into the roof of the net, adding a fortunate second in the 17th minute with a free-kick that both hit the top of the wall and the inside of the post on its way in. 

Tottenham did produce an immediate response, with Alfie Devine went through to finish from the right after Dane Scarlett had flicked on Marqes Muir’s forward pass a minute after going 0-2 behind.  Banks and Jack Wells-Morrison both went close to scoring for Palace, but Scarlett was only denied by keeper Joe Whitworth, who managed to take the ball away from him on the edge of his box after the Spurs striker had ran through the Eagles’ defence.  J’Neil Bennett was closest to getting Spurs level, with a shot as he came in off the right wing that struck the post from 25 yards out, while Max Robson forced a close range save from the keeper after Dermi Lusala had headed down Marcel Lavinier’s cross.  In between Josh Oluwayemi had to have quick feet to track back and put John-Kymani Gordon’s header over the top.

As the second half started, Banks fired an effort just too high and it was only a short respite, as former Spurs youngster Nya Kirby scored Palace’s third from a tight angle on the right seven minutes into the half although the Spurs keeper got to the shot.  The scoring was completed in the 6th minute, when Banks struck a free-kick that bounced out off the underside of the bar, with Jesurun Rak-Sakyi alert to be first to react as the ball was half-cleared and he found a gap to make it 4-1.

Tottenham’s misery was complete when yet another player picked up a red card, when Malachi Fagan-Walcott was dismissed in the last minute for an incident with Victor Akinwale. 

Teams :
Spurs – Josh Oluwayemi, Dermi Lusala  , Marcel Lavinier, Matthew Craig  , Marqes Muir, Malachi Fagan-Walcott (c)  89, J’Neil Bennett, Max Robson (Rio Kyerematen 73), Dane Scarlett (Jaden Williams 73), Alfie Devine, Yago Santiago

05.02.2022 Tottenham’s Under-18s went down to a 2-4 defeat at Hotspur Way against Crystal Palace in a physical match in the Under-18 Premier League.

Going ahead after four minutes through Alfie Dorrington’s finish to Thomas Bloxham’s cross did not help Spurs, as Palace striker Ademola Ola-Adebomi equalised five minutes later, when he out-muscled Brandon Bryan-Waugh to beat Luca Gunter from a narrow angle on the left.  In the 18th minute, debutant Under-16s full back Jayden Meghoma had the ball taken off him and Raymond teed up Ola-Adebomi for his second goal.  As the game moved from end to end, Rio Kyerematen took the ball through the Palace defence and into the penalty area, but his shot only brought a corner.  Bloxham delivered it into the goalmouth and when the ball was cleared Max McKnight fired it back in, with Rio on hand to force the ball into the net from six yards out with 23 minutes on the clock.  However, the lead was snatched back when Victor Akinwale timed his run to beat the off-side trap and slotted past Luca Gunter to make it 3-2.

The second half was quieter in comparison, but three minutes after the restart, Kyerematen almost levelled with a shot at the near post from a Bloxham free-kick, but was denied by the keeper’s sharp save.  Palace had a couple of chances, but with Spurs going for the equaliser, the win was wrapped up when Ola-Adebomi ran through, went around Gunter and then benefitted from two Spurs defenders failing to clear, allowing him to make the final score 4-2.

Teams :
Spurs – Luca Gunter, George Abbott (Jahziah Linton 78), Jayden Meghoma, Han Willhoft-King, Brandon Bryan-Waugh, Alfie Dorrington, Max McKnight, Rio Kyerematen (c), Jaden Williams, Jamie Donley (Billy Heaps 67), Thomas Bloxham (Renaldo Torraj 78)

04.12.2021 Slow starting cost Tottenham’s Under-18s as Crystal Palace were 2-0 ahead with only six minutes on the clock and went on to win 3-0 at their Beckenham training ground.

Jack Wells-Morrison smashed a second minute shot past Luca Gunter from the 18 yard line and in the sixth minute Ademola Ola-Adebomi found a way through the middle of our defence and managed to toe the ball into the roof of the net to make it 2-0.  Only a fine save by Luca Gunter, getting a strong hand to Ola-Adebomi’s shot stopped it being 0-3 a minute later.  Victor Akinwale glanced in a header from a free-kick with nine minutes gone, but he was flagged offside.  Adler Nascimento should have got his close range effort on target, but instead fired powerfully but over the crossbar.  Akinwale did get on the score-sheet two minutes before half-time when he was fouled in the penalty area by Rio Kyerematen and he took the spot-kick himself, putting it past Gunter to make it 3-0 at the break. 

It took 52 minutes for Spurs to get a shot on target after the shaky start, with Brandon Bryan-Waugh forcing Palace keeper Goodman into a save.  While Tottenham were gaining a little control of the game, Palace were looking to break and Gunter denied Ozoh and Dorrington bravely blocked an Akinwale shot.  Nascimento had a shot deflected just wide with ten minutes to go, while a last minute Renaldo Torraj curled a 20 yard free-kick inches past the keeper’s right hand post.

20.09.2008
A single goal by Jon Obika settled this match against Crystal Palace Youth at Spurs Lodge in the FA Premier Academy League.

The win keeps Spurs unbeaten in five matches and the well-drilled Palace side made it difficult for Tottenham to break them down, but by using the ball well and passing around the Palace players, a number of chances were created without being taken.

The goal came on 65 minutes, when Adam Smith and Dean Parrett worked a good position on the right to pull the ball back for Obika to shoot home for the winner.

11.03.2006 The Under-18 side lost out at Crystal Palace 0-1 in a match that saw them create and miss a hatful of opportunities.

Two very good chances were made by Spurs in the first half, but having failed to take them, Palace hit the back of the net minutes after the interval with a cross being headed home.  Spurs hit back making another three good openings, but all were spurned. 

Joe Martin, playing in a new centre-half position and forward Terry Dixon impressed as Tottenham returned to North London with nothing to show for their efforts.

12.03.1997 The FA Cup Fourth Round tie between Crystal Palace and Spurs Youth was staged at Plough Lane and the “home” side won 1-0.

The first twenty minutes of the game was equally balanced but then Palace won a series of set-pieces, which suited their physical nature and Alan Marriott was positive and made some good saves when Palace threatened.  He had no chance when a free-kick in the closing minutes of the second half, which Palace had dominated, was headed down and fired in from close range to record the only goal of the game.

15.02.1997 Crystal Palace’s Juniors gave Spurs a heavy defeat by winning 6-2 at their Imperial Sports Ground in Division 2 of the South-East Counties League.

Palace had a strong youth set-up and Robbie Stepney decided to go defensive, which had a degree of success with the teams changing ends with Palace holding a 1-0 lead.  A change of tactics at the break to go more on the offensive didn’t work and Palace started to run away with the game, but goals from Peter Crouch and Simon Clist pulled the deficit back to 2-4.  However, Palace stepped up a gear to run out 6-2 winners.

26.10.1991 A 1-1 draw was the outcome of this South East Counties Division Two match at Palace.

Both sides had first half chances, but the Tottenham defence was stronger than in recent games.  The second half started with Spurs on the attack, but a cross-shot was misjudged by Spurs keeper Martin Ware, who pushed it into his own net.

A double substitution with Leon Townley and Simon Elliott coming on with 20 minutes left saw Tottenham attack better and Danny Hill produced an opportunity for Junior McDougald to finish well and earn a point for Spurs with three minutes left in the game.

Paul Wilkins and Robert Brace put Tottenham 2-0 up before Palace pulled a goal back before half-time, but many Tottenham chances went begging as we were on top for long periods of the 45 minutes.

It came back to bite Spurs, as Palace suddenly took a 3-2 lead early in the second half, with two quick goals, one from the penalty spot.  However, Spurs Youth reacted well and Mike McCabe got an equaliser with Wilkins heading in goal number four to restore the lead and McCabe made it 5-3 in the final few minutes.
