Posted on 28 February 2017  - 17:00

Harry Kane's hat-trick in our fine 4-0 win against Stoke on Sunday chalked off a number of milestones...

100th career goal

Harry's opener against Stoke - a tradmark snapshot across goalkeeer Lee Grant into the far corner - was the 100th goal of his career so far. His first career goal came during a loan spell for Leyton Orient against Sheffield Wednesday in January, 2011. He scored 16 goals in loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall and Leicester City. The treble took him to 102 career goals and 86 at Spurs.
