Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to a tweet from Harry Kane, as he confirmed that he will be sponsoring Leyton Orient’s shirts for the 2020/21 season.
The 26-year-old’s first professional start came for the League Two side back in January 2011 against Rochdale, with the England captain now wanting to pay the club back by aiding them during these uncertain times. He wrote on Twitter: “Very proud to announce that I’m supporting the club that gave me my first pro start and three amazing causes by sponsoring @leytonorientfc‘s shirts for the 2020/21 season.”
He also gave more details in a later tweet, saying: “Delighted to be able to give back to the club where my journey began and those doing incredible work on the frontline and for @havenhousech and @mindcharity.”
