The History Of Tottenham Hotspur Women

Tottenham Hotspur Women were formed in 1985 as Broxbourne Ladies until they got permission to change the name to Tottenham Hotspur in 1991/92. In 1992 they added a reserves team at the beginning of the new season.


The club continued to grow and develop in 2000 when Glenn Weaver became the chairman. He recruited people with the same passion and enthusiasm that shared his vision.


Back in 2002 the team received the Sport England Volunteer Investment Programme Award for the whole of the London area.


They were awarded the FA Charter Standard Club In 2006 and in 2008 they were awarded the FA Charter Standard Female Club for the London FA. Glenn Weaver was awarded the FA National Award for his outstanding contribution to community football in 2015 but he sadly passed away in February 2015, he will always be remembered for his hard work and everything he had done for the club.


Spurs Ladies are now one of the biggest clubs in London and are currently running 11 teams with the first team including 3 senior sides and 8 junior sides at U17, U16, U15, U14, U13, U12, U11 and U10s.


They have been in many Cup finals over the years and were runners up in the Middlesex County Cup In 1991/92, Greater London Regional Women’s League-Premier Division In 1994/95, 1995/96, 1996/97 and 2000/01, Greater London Regional Women’s League Cup In 1998/99 and 2003/04, Ryman Women’s Cup In 2014/15 and the Capital Women’s Cup In 2015/16.


They ended up winning multiple cup finals including the Greater London Regional Women’s League Cup In 1995/96, Greater London Regional Women’s League-Division 1 in 1997/98, London and South East Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division In 2007/08, FA South East Combination Champions In 2010/11, London County Senior Cup 2011/12, Ryman Women’s Cup In 2015/16, FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division winners in 2016/17 and FA Women’s Premier League Championship Play-Off winners in 2016/17 which saw them get promoted to the FA Women’s Super League 2 for the first time.



Their first ever season in the FA Women’s Super League 2 was tough for them as they had to play against some great teams who have had a lot of experience in the league and knew how the other teams played but that didn’t stop Spurs from having a great season as they finished 7th in the league and earned a well deserved spot for next season.


Spurs Women had an amazing 2018/19 season in the FA Women’s Championship which is formally known as the FA Women’s Super League 2 and they played against newly formed Manchester United Women who are managed by former England Women’s player Casey Stoney. They finished 2nd, just 9 points behind league winners Man United which earned both teams promotion to the FA Women’s Super League.


The 2019/20 season was our first ever time in the top women’s league in England and we played against some great teams and in some amazing stadiums including Stamford Bridge, London Stadium and the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. We finished 7th in the league which was great considering it was our first season in that league and we did play against some of the best teams in England. Next season will be a challenge for us but I believe we can be contenders for top 4.
