    Football legend Ricky Villa will kick off a new era at a revamped supermarket next month.

    The former Argentina international star, 58, who played for Tottenham Hotspur, will be the guest of honour for the launch of the extended Tesco store in Aisher Way, Riverhead, on Monday, November 1 at 10am.

    Villa, who was part of the Argentina squad that lifted the World Cup in 1978 and won the FA Cup with Spurs in 1981, will be joined by Seamus Martin and Nick Kirkham from Sevenoaks Round Table for the unveiling of the extended supermarket.

    The midfield ace will cut a ribbon, before store manager Joe Ralph presents Mr Martin and Mr Kirkham with a cheque for £500 for the charitable work of the round table.

    The first customers will then be able to join in the celebration by enjoying Champagne, orange juice and cake.

    Mr Ralph said:
    New features of the extended store include a Tesco clothing range, a Costa Coffee and an Order and Collect desk, where customers will have access to thousands of non-food products to take home the same day, collect the day after or arrange to be delivered to their home.

    The store will open at 8am every Monday and remain open for 24 hours a day until midnight on Saturday. It will be open on Sundays from 10am until 4pm.

    Its petrol station will be open Monday to Saturday 6am until 10pm and Sunday 8am until 10pm.

    Villa, who was born in Buenos Aires, was brought to White Hart Lane with countryman Ossie Ardilles after their 1978 World Cup success and were part of a golden era for the London club after arriving to a ticker tape parade.

    They were both inducted into the Spurs Hall of Fame two years ago and Villa’s winning FA Cup goal against Manchester City in 1981 was voted the goal of the century in 2001.
