Spurs v QPR Reserves Match Reports
[this page is under-going on-going construction – please bear with MEHSTG as we try to complete this mammoth task for all our opponents.]


22.10.1991 Spurs travelled to Queens Park Rangers and lost this Football Combination match 1-3.

Two goals by Rangers in the first half handed Spurs a tough task to get back into the game.  The goals came after periods of poor play by the Spurs team and it was only an inch perfect pass from Peter Garland that allowed David Howells to smash the ball past Tony Roberts, as he came out to close the Spurs man down.

With Tottenham on top, it looked more likely that the goal would come from our players, but sloppy defending allowed QPR to get through for a third before the turnaround.

The second half saw Spurs tighten up, but fail to create any decent opportunities to score and there was no addition to the score-line.

17.04.1971 Spurs won a London reserve derby with QPR with a couple of goals in each half of this Football Combination match at White Hart Lane.

The opener came from Roy Woolcott who took the ball from David Jenkins and hit a right foot shot that went in off the goal-post.  Phil Holder scored Tottenham’s second, converting a twice taken penalty after John Cutbush had been fouled in the box.  Terry Naylor’s initial spot-kick was saved by the keeper, who had moved too early and Holder stepped up to slot home the re-take.

Spurs went on to control the second half, with John Cutbush having swapped passes with Neil Johnson and then Holder’s right-footed drive secured a 4-0 winning margin for Tottenham.
