Spurs v Luton Town Youth Match Reports


19.10.1991 A disappointing defensive performance saw Luton Town leave with a 4-0 win in the South East Counties Division Two.  

Manager Pat Holland played with a sweeper to try and stiffen the back four, but it did not work out for the side and having gone 0-2 behind in the first half, the side reverted to a flat back four but there was little going forward for Tottenham, so Andrew Marlowe was pushed forward.  However, this left Spurs light at the back and Luton exploited this to run out 4-0 winners, with Marlowe’s performance the only positive from the game.

Teams :
Spurs –  Ware, Marlowe, Turner, Jordan, Reynolds, Banks, Knott (Louch 65) Kinnear, McDougald, Geoghan (Elliott 65), Haynes
