Spurs v West Bromwich Albion Youth Match Reports

22.04.2023 Spurs Under-18s succumbed to a late West Brom free-kick to go down 2-3 at the Baggies’ training ground.

We were poor in the first half with barely a sniff of a shot at goal, but WBA had a good chance when Eseosa Sule shot wide when well placed and they went ahead in the 14th minute, when Archie Kirton’s pass inside from the right wing allowed Oliver Bostock to hit the net pat Carey Bloedorn.

The Spurs keeper then made very good saves from a header by Jenson Sumnall from a corner and a free-kick from Cole Deeming, while at the other end only Jaden William’s long-range effort that looped onto the top of the bar threatened the home goal immediately before the interval.

Damola Ajayi came on for Williams at the break and he helped step up the attacking threat, with Tottenham’s equaliser coming on the hour.  Tyrese Hall curled a low free-kick around the wall and into the bottom corner of the net to make it 1-1.  There were chances at both ends, with Oliver Irow hitting a low shot from a tight angle that was blocked and Sule fired a shot over the goal when in a good position.  However, with 15 minutes left Albion went ahead again, with Kone getting on the end of a pass from the right to slide the ball past Bloedorn.

Ajayi tested Hollingshead and Bloedorn saved well from Oliver, but Irow beat the WBA keeper after taking possession from Max McKnight’s blocked cross and made space on the 18 yard line to bending a right-footed shot in off the far post.  With the score at 2-2, it looked as though Tottenham had earned a point, but in the fourth minute of added time, Sumnall curled a free-kick into the top corner to bag all three points for the home side.

20.08.2022 Spurs Under-18s lost out to a late West Bromwich Albion goal at the end of the match to lose 1-2.

Spurs had taken the game to Albion from the start, with Yusuf Akhamrich starting his first Under-18 match was disappointed to see his shot deflected over the bar.  It was Tottenham who took the early lead in the fourth minute as Max McKnight’s low ball into the box was turned home inside the near post by Rio Kyerematen. There was action at either end, with Luca Gunter keeping out a Harry Whitwell effort and another from Fenton Heard, with Akhamrich shooting over. 

WBA’s half-time changes paid off with an equaliser when Akeel Higgins strike from the left hand corner of the box found the opposite top corner just before the hour.  Akhamrich forced a diving save from Hudd from a free-kick, but the lack of urgency after the equaliser and Heard slipped in Layton Love stroked home in the 95th minute with almost the final kick of the game.

Spurs : –  Luca Gunter (c), George Abbott (James Rowswell 46 [Billy Heaps 80]), Alfie Dorrington (Archie Chaplin 46), Will Andiyapan, Jahziah Linton, Billy Heaps (Oliver Irow 75), Max McKnight, Rio Kyerematen (Thomas Bloxham 45+3), Jaden Williams (Damola Ajayi 46), Leo Black, Yusuf Akhamrich.

21.01.2022 Spurs Under-18s welcomed West Bromwich Albion to Hotspur Way in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup and it was Tottenham who went through winning comprehensively.

Alfie Devine had headed a corner into the side-netting and Jaden Williams could make the most of Albion defender Alex Williams’ loose pass, before Jordan Hackett made a good block to prevent Cleary’s powerful shot reaching the Tottenham goal.  In the 26th minute, Thomas Bloxham’s curling effort from outside the area hit the post and Williams seized on the loose ball, only to see keeper Ronnie Hollingshead save, but he was quick to react to force the rebound off the keeper into the net.  Bloxham was pulling the strings and his ball to Max McKnight in the 31st minute saw the defender cross from the right corner of the area for Jaden to convert to make it 2-0.

A minute into the second half, McKnight saw his rasping shot turned over the bar by Hollingshead, but it was in the 54th minute that Alfie Devine set off on a run that ended with him driving in a shot from the left corner of the box.  Alfie Dorrington’s foul on Cleary saw the referee point to the spot and the Baggies striker converted the spot-kick himself to make it 3-1 after 63 minutes, but within two minutes, Spurs had found the net again.  Bloxham picked out Rio Kyerematen on the right side of the box and he put in a pacy low ball that Charlie Sayers turned in from close range and after creating chances, Thomas got on the score-sheet with two late goals.  Firstly, he took Williams’ pass and put the ball away from inside the box after 72 minutes of the match and four minutes later, he completed the scoring with a near finish, guiding Kyerematen’s cross home.  Although Cleary looked as though he might have a late chance, he was denied by Luca Gunter and Tottenham eased to a 6-1 win.

02.10.2021 Spurs Under-18s were undone at West Bromwich Albion with the home side scoring a 4-3 win in the Premier U18 League in a game that Tottenham had the better stats in.

Reyes Cleary handed WBA the lead in the 13th minute after out-muscling Under-16 Archie Chaplin, but Rio Kyerematen was the player to bring Spurs level with a goal in the 22nd minute, finishing from the edge of the box when the ball came off the post from Jamie Donley’s shot.  Tottenham laid siege to West Brom’s goal with Jaden Williams going down under challenge from Mark Chidi, Will Andiyapan manoeuvred the ball to Donley and he found the net, but was adjudged to be offside, before Alfie Dorrington could only hit the keeper from a Khalon Haysman corner.  Five minutes before half-time Fenton Heard restored Albion’s lead, assisted by Cleary, with Mark Chidi making it 3-1 five minutes after the match had re-started, heading in off the underside of the crossbar after Adam Hayton had produced a very good save from Cleary. 

The Tottenham team struck two minutes later when Donley pulled a goal back, turning in Dante Cassanova’s corner, only for Cleary to make it 4-2 in the 70th minute firing in a shot on the turn from 18 yards out.  That came after substitute Brandon Bryan-Waugh’s shot had been heading in until a deflection took it inches wide and while Spurs pushed hard to get something from the game, we only had Jaden Williams’ 91st minute consolation to show for their efforts, when the striker fired past the keeper after he had beaten out Donley’s shot.
