24.07.2021 An old-fashioned week by the seaside for the Spurs Under-18s ended with a friendly away at Ipswich Town.

With the Covid-19 pandemic preventing the Spurs youth side from attending an annual tournament in Belgium, coach Stuart Lewis took for a week’s training and provided life skills sessions in a Norfolk school.

Let out on a football field Spurs looked the hungrier of the two teams and went ahead just before half-time with Jamie Donley tucking away a penalty awarded for handball.  In the 52nd minute, Rio Kyerematen timed his run to perfection to finish a move started by Tom Bloxham and crossed in from the left by Jahziah Linton to be finished inside the six yard box.

Spurs applied pressure and forced the Ipswich keeper to make a series of saves, but on the hour, the home team got stronger and Ash Boatswain scored twice in two minutes with Jack Manly scoring a winner for the Tractor Boys in the 66th minute.

30.04.2011 Tottenham earned a 2-1 away win in the FA Academy League against a strong Ipswich Town side at Playford.

Spurs used their players’ speed and ability to out-with the Ipswich defenders, who were able to cope with aerial balls, but the sharp passing on the floor which caught them on the turn and the team exploited this to control a large proportion of the play.

An early goal handed Tottenham the advantage when Massimo Luongo struck a shot into the bottom left corner of the net from the edge of the box when Ipswich failed to clear an attack in the fourth minute.  Zapata looked likely to score as he faced the Town keeper, but Meekings made a well-timed tackle to prevent the Spurs man getting his shot away, then Cropper denied Coulthirst with a low save from the striker’s shot from ten yards.

In the 18th minute, Archer was alert to change direction to make a reflex save from a deflected Lavery shot, tipping the ball over the bar.  Ten minutes before half-time, Spurs went 2-0 ahead with good work on the left between Lameiras and Zapata opening up the defence for Shaquile Coulthirst to bury a low drive into the bottom corner of the net.

Tottenham had controlled the game, with Ipswich’s Bennett causing problems on their right, but Lavery looked the most likely to score, missing the target when Archer had to head Luongo’s back-pass away and then the same player fired a ball across the face of goal.  And it was the Irish lad who got Ipswich’s goal when he hit a 74th minute free-kick into Archer’s net off the post.  He almost grabbed an equaliser for the home side, when Jordan Archer denied both him and Bennett with good saves.  Chances went begging at both ends and in added time, Coulthirst slid in to meet a low cross, but he was unable to control his shot that sailed too high, while Meekings had a header across goal, with no blue shirt available to touch it in. 

Teams :
Ipswich Town –  Cody Cropper, Callum Bennett, David October, Aaron Jones, Josh Meekings (c), Elliot Scotcher, Cormac Burke, Lewis Acott, Caolan Lavery, Rory McKeown (Jack Marriott 65), Carel Tiofack (Tom Winter 65).

13.02.2010 Spurs endured a goal-less first half and showed good patience to run out 2-0 winners against Ipswich Town at Spurs Lodge in the FA Premier Academy League.

Kudus Oyenuga was foiled when through on the keeper and Ipswich struck the woodwork in a breakaway move, but the first half finished without scoring.  With 60 minutes gone, substitute Paul McBride crossed for Nathan Byrne to score from inside the six yard box and with ten minutes left, Tom Carroll found Jesse Waller-Lassen, who finished coolly to seal a 2-0 victory.

30.03.1975 Ipswich Town hosted Spurs Youth in the South-East Counties Division 1 League Cup final second leg, winning 4-1 to take the trophy 5-1 on aggregate.

Ipswich’s Scottish striker Alan Brazil had shot the Suffolk side into the lead in the 26th minute, but four minutes later, Steve Cavanagh fired home a drive from fully 35 yards out to make it 1-1.

With the game poised at 1-1, in the 44th minute, a Spurs corner was played into the box, but cleared by the Town defence.  However, David Geddis aimed a kick at Kevin Stead and the referee spotted this, awarding a penalty and booking the Ipswich forward.  Glenn Hoddle stepped up to take the kick, but it lacked power and goalkeeper Glen Ellis pushed it away and the ball was hacked upfield.  It was there that Geddis left Gary Hyams floored and the referee sent him off straight away.

Coming out for the second half against the odds, Ipswich made their ten men count by putting in extra effort and it paid off with two goals from Tommy O’Neill in the 66th and 75th minute that stunned Tottenham and to wrap the game up, a fierce ball across the box was taken down by John Wark with his back to goal and he turned on it to power a shot past Mark Kendall.
