One of the most eagerly awaited clashes in youth team football this season, saw Arsenal beat Spurs in the FA Youth Cup semi-final at White Hart Lane last night. A crowd of over 19,000 saw some famous young names including the likes of John Bostock and Jack Wilshere.
Watching on were managers Harry Redknapp and Arsene Wenger as Spurs took an early lead through Jon Obika. Five minutes into the second period the Gunners hit back, Kyle Bartley heading home from a corner. And two late goals from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Rhys Murphy booked Arsenal a semi-final berth.
