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



13.02.2001 Spurs Reserves enjoyed a comfortable win that allowed them to give run-outs for Les Ferdinand and Steffen Iversen, who were both coming back from injury.

A dull first half saw Spurs doing all the pressing, but they were unable to break through the Dons’ defence.  However, two goals in a minute broke the deadlock.  In the 46th minute, John Piercy’s run into the box ended with a foul on him and Willem Korsten fired home from 12 yards past Paul Heald in the Wimbledon goal.  Then, Matthew Etherington’s left wing run produced a cross to allow Ian Hillier to knock the ball home from close range.

The game then went quiet until the arrival of the two Spurs strikers from the bench and Korsten lobbed a ball to Les Ferdinand to crack a 90th minute volley in to round off the 3-0 win.

14.12.1987 A friendly at Plough Lane saw Spurs Reserves run out 6-0 winners against Wimbledon.

Giving Johnny Metgod a run-out after injury, Spurs enjoyed a good afternoon, with John Moncur opening the scoring with a left-footed volley before Shaun Close made it 2-0 finishing off a Mark Robson cross from a short corner into the box with a header.  Robson turned scorer with a precisely placed right foot effort into the top corner, following it up with the fourth goal, beating the keeper with his shot after coming inside from the left wing.

Paul Moran was alert to intercept a back-pass and find the net and he then created the opportunity for Richard Johnston to complete the 6-0 rout.

Spurs v Wimbledon Youth Match Reports



15.03.1997 A friendly with Wimbledon Youth at Spurs Lodge was won a single Dons goal.

Tottenham took the opportunity to field some Youth Training Scheme players for the following season, while the Wombles fielded a strong team.  A strong start to the match continued through the first half and the teams turned around goal-less only because Peter Crouch’s finish to Narada Bernard’s cross was ruled out by the referee. 

Despite some good passing and movement off the ball, Spurs were undone in the closing minutes when a mis-kicked clearance was tucked away for Wimbledon’s winner.

Teams :
Spurs –  Gavin Kelly, Leigh Mills, Alton Thelwell, Ledley King, Narada Bernard, Nicky Hunt, Ross Fitzsimon, Simon Clist, Glenn Poole, Peter Crouch, Ian Stonebridge.
