There was a meeting of goalscorers at Hotspur Way today as Harry Kane met the legendary Jimmy Greaves at our Training Centre.

Our all-time leading marksman with 266 goals in 379 appearances, Jimmy was keen to meet a man who is gradually writing his own name into our history books.

Harry has won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and hit his century of Spurs goals in just 169 matches earlier this season.

Jimmy watched the current team put through their paces ahead of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool before meeting our modern day No.10 and Christian Eriksen.

Harry said: “It was an honour to meet Jimmy. His achievements at Spurs and his goal record for Club and country are certainly things that I aspire to.

“It’s important that we continue to recognise the many great players in our history who have laid the foundations for what we’re trying to achieve today."
