Posted on 1 June 2017  - 15:15

Harry Kane became only the third Spur to score five hat-tricks in a season in 2016-17 - and the first in 80 years.

Harry on his way to his first hat-trick of the season - West Brom at home, January 14Gial number two in hat-trick two of the season - Fulham away in the FA Cup, February 19The second goal of hat-trick number three against Stoke - February 26Matchball four in hand - after four goals at Leicester - May 18Hat-trick in our record 7-1 away win at Hull - May 21And that means the Premier League's Golden Boot!

Indeed, the previous quintuple hat-trick scorers were in the 1930s - George Hunt in 1933-34 and Johnny Morrison in 1936-37.

Harry joined that list with four trebles in the Premier League - West Brom and Stoke at the Lane, Leicester and Hull away - and one in the FA Cup at Fulham.

His final two hat-tricks in the final two games of the season at Leicester and Hull helped secure the Premier League's Golden Boot for the second-successive season.

Harry is now up to eight hat-tricks for Spurs, only the great Jimmy Greaves (15), Bobby Smith (12), George Hunt (11), Johnny Morrison (10) and Cliff Jones (10) have scored more.
