A message from the fans

On behalf of all the Spurs fans I would like to say a massive thank you to Karen and Juan for everything they have done for the club and for getting us to where we are today, you've both helped the club win trophies, winning the league at White Hart Lane and made history by getting the team promoted to the top flight of women's football and had a record attendance of 38,262 fans when they played Arsenal Women at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in 2019. We all wish you both the best in what you do next and can't wait to see what the future holds for you both.

They have both guided the team from the 3rd tier all the way to the WSL which was an incredible achievement for the team and all of the coaching staff. They worked hard and their determination helped shape so many players lives and helped them be the players they are today. Back in the 2016/17 season they made they made the fans and players which included Jenna Schillaci, Nikita Whinnett, Megen Lynch, Riana Soobadoo, Toni-Anne Wayne, Bianca Baptiste, Lucia Leon, Renee Hector, Maya Vio, Eartha Pond, Leah Rawle, Josie Green, Sophie McLean, Wendy Martin, Kelley Blanchflower and Shannon Moloney dreams come true as they won the Capital Women's Cup, Boux Avenue Cup, FA Women's Premier League Southern Division at White Hart Lane in front of 2,000 fans and were promoted to the WSL 2 after beating Blackburn in the FA Women's Premier League Championship Play-off, that was the first time they have won 4 trophies in one season and they have both worked well to get the team to where they belong today in the Women's Super League. We all wish both Karen and Juan the best for the future and hope to see them again soon.
