Tottenham Hotspur have just one game left at home in the new stadium this season, and it could be an extremely crucial affair.

If Spurs fail to win away to Bournemouth this weekend, then qualification for the top four and next year’s Champions League could come down to Everton at home.

Tottenham will be hoping to have it wrapped up by then, but either way, the last game of the season will be a hot ticket.

Harry Kane has now offered one fan the chance to come down and be a mascot for the day against Everton, although it comes in vile circumstances.

After Neil Markham posted a video of his 16-year-old daughter dancing at the new stadium on Twitter, she was subjected to vile abuse.

Ella Markham, who has Down’s syndrome, was targeted by disgusting online trolls, despite the heartwarming nature of her father’s video.

Harry Kane is used to dealing with trolls on a day-to-day basis, and hopefully his gift to Ella will turn this ordeal into a happy memory for her.

  1. If you are reading this and we’re one of those who chose to direct abuse at the little girl can I implore you to seek some help, medical or otherwise. You apparently thought it was great fun to direct anonymous abuse towards her and I would suggest you probably have a serious problem mentally or with your character which could get worse as you get older and become even more serious than it is now.
