Harry Kane Honoured As Tottenham's All-Time Leading Goalscorer.

Harry Kane is honoured as Spurs all-time leading goal scorer with a special tifo and a trophy before kick-off in the London derby game against West Ham United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday evening.

Kane wrote his name into the history books at Tottenham Hotspur after becoming the club's new all-time top goal scorer, claiming a record that has stood for over 50 years.

In scoring one goal against Manchester City on Sunday, February 5th, the England captain took his total for Spurs to 267 to surpass the long-standing record held by revered club legend Jimmy Greaves since the 1969-70 season.

Famed as one of English football's most prolific strikers, Greaves scored 266 goals in 379 games in all competitions for Spurs between 1961 and 1970.

Harry Kane was further presented with the special trophy led by late Jimmy Greaves' wife Irene and Spurs legend Ledley King.


Tottenham returned to winning ways after consecutive defeats, 4-1 away to Leicester City, and a 1-0 lose away to AC Milan in the Champions League  round-of-16 encounter in midweek.

Goals from Emerson Royal and Son Heung-Min secured a 2-0 win at home over West Ham in a heated London derby.

The victory sees them move past Newcastle into the top four.

"Our record breaker. Our history maker," Tottenham said on Twitter in an image which showed fans holding up white cards to spell the name of their great goalscorer.

Kane's winner against City was also his 200th Premier League goal and next in his sights will be the competition record of 260 goals, which belongs to former Newcastle, Blackburn and Southampton striker Alan Shearer.

Despite being heavily linked away from Tottenham, Kane who has spent his entire playing career with the club is expected to be offered a new contract by the north London club in the summer.
