Shoot-out victory brings home the cup for Spurs Ladies


There will be some new silverware on display at Tottenham Hotspur after the Spurs Ladies defeated Charlton Athletic Friday Night at Theobalds Lane.

After 120 minutes of play, neither side had managed to find the back of the net, sending the final to a shootout. Playing in front of club legend Gary Mabbutt, Spurs managed to break a bit of a hex after coming up short the previous two seasons in the same competition, winning 4-3 on penalties.

Spurs Captain Jenna Schillaci was a bit emotional after the match as her team celebrated the victory, speaking with SpursTV for the site.

"It's an amazing feeling to win, I can't put it into words," said Jenna, one of three players alongside Wendy and Bianca to rack up over 100 appearances for the team.

"We had such a good build-up to the final, the Club did everything to prepare us and it was up to us to go out there and do it.

"I thought we were the better team, we had so many chances but we just tend to do things the hard way!

"I felt awful after missing the penalty but I knew if anyone was going to score a decisive penalty it would be Katie. I'm thrilled for her because she's been out injured since November and this was her first game back.

Spurs Ladies have been playing exceptionally well this season, as this is their first of three cup finals to wrap up the season. On April 27, these sides will meet again in the Capital One Cup Final, which will be played at Wingate & Finchley FC.

The third final is arguably the one the women want the most as they will take on Cardiff City at Kiddermister on May 8 in the Women's FA Cup Final. This could be a very special season for the women as they attempt to do the treble in the next few weeks.
