Spurs look to build on Cup successes
 Women's Football News 23 Aug 2016
 
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies had a tremendous campaign last year, reaching three cup finals and finishing with a famous cup double. 
 
As aforementioned, the Capital Women's Cup was snatched from their grasp at the hands of the same side they beat just two weeks prior on penalties to win the Ryman Cup, and their first piece of silverware, Charlton Athletic. They followed suit by achieving their ultimate target, the FA Women's Premier League Cup, which saw them overcome eventual winners of their League, Brighton & Hove Albion, on their way to reaching the final in Kidderminster. A never-say-die attitude saw Spurs come out on top against Cardiff City in May, a 120th minute header from Maya Vio preceded Bianca Baptiste's opener in a 2-1 victory.
 
Karen Hills' side aren't willing to rest on their laurels, and although they hold their achievements to date in high regard, the eagerness to go one better is prevalent. To the frustration of the Lilywhites, they had a wavering league campaign finishing comfortably in sixth place, which is the driving force for this coming campaign.
 
The squad is full of young, hungry talent as displayed in last season's FA Cup 4th round tie (equalling their best-ever round) against WSL 2 outfit, Aston Villa, which saw them narrowly slip to defeat in extra-time by 2-3 after twice getting themselves in front. The incentive is to finish in the top three positions in the League, and although Hills' side saw Northern Ireland International Avilla Bergin go to rivals Charlton Athletic, the realism of achieving that target has been strengthened by Nikita Whinnett and Megen Lynch coming the other way.
 
Both players have pedigree in this league and will be sure to bring that edge of experience which could prove to be vital, alongside the arrival of WSL striker, Cheryl Williams. Added to this, the signings of Renee Hector formerly of Watford, and Jade Dempster, formerly of London Bees, will add wealth of WSL know-how to an already impressive defensive unit.
 
So far, so good in pre-season overcoming Middlesbrough 5-1, Enfield Town 4-0, a 4-3 North London derby win over Arsenal's highly-regarded developmental side, followed by a 3-3 draw with WSL 2 outift, Watford Ladies.
 
With Hills' side looking in high spirits, she said: "After a very successful season for us last year we are looking forward to reaching those heights again this year. Our aim this season is to be more consistent in the league throughout the year and to finish in the top three. We are improving on and off the field year after year and I feel we are going in the right direction. Last season we enjoyed the cup runs very much and we will be looking to retain those cups, the FA cup run is always special as it gives you a chance to test yourself against WSL teams in the later stages of the competition and something we will be working towards achieving."
