With a nervy 2-1 win over Horley Town on Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur Ladies FC won the London and South-East Regional Women's Football League Premier Division title in front of a crowd of over 200 at the Frederick Knights Sports Ground.

Needing the three points to make sure those teams behind them with games in hand could not catch them, striker Rosi Webb rattled the post with an early shot and despite some tentative play, Jessie Richards gave the team a 1-0 lead ten minutes before the break with a speedy run past a square defence to slot the ball home.
Horley belied their second from bottom place in the table with a spirited performance that saw them worry Spurs with an equaliser five minutes after the interval, with two efforts bouncing back off the crossbar. However, strike partners Webb and Richards had opportunities to put the game back in Tottenham's favour, but they had to wait until Richards hooked home at the far post from a flicked on corner to make it 2-1.
Spurs saw out the remainder of the match without too many more nail-biting moments to take the championship with a great run of seven successive victories and only one league defeat since the start of December.
Senior squad manager June Clarke said, "The ladies have put in some hard work off the pitch in training and reaped the rewards with a great run-in to the end of the season. Some of the football they have played has been good to watch, but they have blended a steely determination to win games when they have been up against it, resulting in the success they achieved. We look forward to new challenges in the season ahead in a new league."

cheers
