Another national lockdown has given Brian Hubball time to raid his archives again - and the prolific Herts Ad Sunday League snapper has found some crackers, including one of a Tottenham and football legend.

Jimmy Greaves is the player in question and he was on hand to do the honours when Harpenden Rovers extended their clubhouse.

Bubs also found plenty from the 2000-01 season.
