Tottenham Hotspur’s womens team actually started life as Broxbourne Ladies, founded by Sue Sharples and Kay Lovelock in 1985. However, the team was given permission to adopt the Tottenham name in 1991, and just a year later the women’s side were given permission to start a reserves team, too.

Thanks to the efforts of former chairman, the late Glenn Weaver, the women’s side grew and grew throughout the 2000s and into the 2010s. And now, the club is one of the biggest in the WSL, and offers an innovative Female Talent Pathway that helps young women join the game.
