Manager Karen Hills and her squad are currently unbeaten in the FAWPL this season and have only dropped points in one of their 17 matches.
Three points against the West Ham ladies gave them an unassailable 10 point lead at the top of the table.
Captain Jenna Schillaci and her teammates will be able to get her hands on the trophy with three games to spare.
It is the first time the Spurs Ladies have won the competition after a successful double-winning campaign last year which saw them picked up the Ryman’s Women’s Cup and FA Women’s Premier League Cup.
