The 2019-20 Women’s Super League season may have been abbreviated, but it was still a fantastic showing for Tottenham Hotspur Women. Spurs ended up finishing seventh, one point more than sixth place Everton, but with the final table position decided on a points per match basis.

The finish may have been mid-table, but Spurs played competitively throughout the campaign in their first ever season in the top flight. For that reason, co-head coaches Karen Hills and Juan Amoros were one of five nominees for the FA WSL Manager of the Season award.

The other nominees for the award are mostly who you’d expect: Manchester City’s Nick Cushing, Chelsea manager Emma Hayes, Manchester United’s Casey Stoney, and Everton’s Willie Kirk.

Hills and Amoros dropped only two points all season against the clubs below them in the table, and were often competitive against the top clubs in the league, who are miles ahead of them in terms of both talent and money. The end result is that with some good investment and improvement, Spurs are positioned to be even better in 2020-21.
