Football fans love nothing more than a home-grown player such as Harry Kane rising from promising youth-team member to fully-fledged first-team hero, well, perhaps free pies on a freezing cold January evening comes close.
While the half-time pastries are sure to cost money, the new darling of White Hart Lane looks well placed to recoup a few pennies for Ladbrokes customers, as Tottenham entertain Sheffield United in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.
The Kane-ster will be boosted by the bookie to score the game’s first goal from 11/4, out to 4/1 at 8.00 am on the morning of kick-off.
A brief summary of Kane’s season in numbers gives great hope that this offer can warm the cockles on a chilly winter night.
The subject of Tottenham fan adoration last witnessed when Ledley King was still gracing the White Hart Lane turf, Kane has taken the fast-track route to stardom.
The Walthamstow lad has fired in 17 goals in 28 Lilywhites appearances this season, establishing himself as top dog in the Spurs striking pack after starting the season as the runt of the litter.
Seven strikes from his last nine games shows that this 21-year-old can net all sorts of goals as well.
Kane is unfussy about the competition or opposition he scores against, encouragingly registering in each of the three previous rounds of the League Cup before the Blades’ visit.
He’s also not averse to breaking the deadlock under the White Hart Lane floodlights, albeit in the Europa League, where Kane grabbed opening goals in two group games to help secure safe passage to the knockout stages.
