Shearer was promoted to the first team after spending two years with the youth squad. He made his professional debut for Southampton on 26 March 1988, coming on as a substitute in a First Division fixture at Chelsea, before prompting national headlines in his full debut at The Dell two weeks later. He scored a hat-trick, helping the team to a 4-2 victory against Arsenal, thus becoming the youngest player, at 17 years 240 days, to score a hat-trick in the top division, breaking Jimmy Greaves’ 30-year-old record. Shearer made a total of 158 appearances in all competitions, scoring 43 goals.
