Tottenham striker Harry Kane has invited a pair of fans who travelled all the way from America to Burnley to a home match in the future after the game against Sean Dyche’s side was postponed.

The game was set to be played on Sunday afternoon, but weather interfered. Heavy snowfall in Lancashire meant that the game had to be postponed, with the pitch covered in a blanket of snow despite the best efforts of those trying to clear it.

The game will be played at a later date and also means that Spurs have to wait until Thursday to play next, when they host Brentford in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

After the postponement, head coach Antonio Conte stated: “We are disappointed that we didn’t play today and also for you, our fans.

“We know that you had a long journey to come to Burnley and watch the game. Thank you for this. We are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday.”

Whilst many made the long journey from London to Lancashire, one couple made an even longer trip before the game was called off.

Taking to Twitter the night before the game, @SaxyKen17 said: “Dallas to London to Burnley (almost there) 31 hours – no sleep – fuelled by coffee, cheese crackers and more coffee. Frigid temps and snow predicted for match day. The things we do when you love your club.”

The news of the game being called off would have come as a huge disappointment given the trip, but Spurs striker Kane was quick to offer the pair an invite to a home game whenever they are next in London.

The England captain took to Twitter late on Sunday evening to say: “Just been sent this tweet and absolutely gutted for you! For your commitment and to make up for the match being called off I’d like to invite you to a home game as my guest when you’re next in London.”

For Spurs fans it was a disappointing way to spend a Sunday, travelling up to Burnley and only finding out less than an hour before kick-off that the game would be postponed.

And for the club it represents another headache, with Conte’s side having to fit in another fixture in an already crowded calendar. With nine games set for December, it is extremely unlikely that the team will be heading back to Turf Moor until the New Year – a task that will only become more complicated if Spurs qualify for the next round of the Europa Conference League.
