While the senior men’s team was completing a stunning comeback over Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur Ladies were doing something even more impressive: winning silverware. Spurs Ladies defeated frequent league opponent Charlton Athletic Ladies FC 3-1 on Wednesday night at Cheshunt FC’s grounds in the finals of the Boux Avenue Cup, the first of three cup finals that Spurs will play in this season.

This is the second straight year that Spurs have lifted this cup — Tottenham defeated Charlton in the then-named Ryman Cup final in 2016 — and the third straight year they’ve reached the finals of this competition. Spurs picked up goals from Wendy Martin and Kelley Blanchflower, and an absolute cracker from Bianca Baptiste en route to the win.

Tottenham are still undefeated in league play this season, with only one loss – the 10-0 FA Cup loss to top-division Arsenal – to blemish their record. The Ladies, who are still top of the FA Women’s Premier League South table, will ironically face Charlton two more times in two more cup finals: the Capital Women’s Cup final on April 25, and the WPL Cup final on May 7. There’s a very good chance that Tottenham will win the Quadruple and promote to the second division of the English women’s pyramid this season.

Excitingly, the Ladies will also play their next league game on Wednesday, April 19 against West Ham United LFC at White Hart Lane. Tickets are available for general sale for £5.
