Apart from Hall only Andy Graver (36 goals in 35 appearances) in 1951/52, John Campbell (35 in 42) in 1936/37 and Jimmy Hutchinson (32 in 41) in 1947/48 have scored more than 30 goals in a Football League season for us.

Billy Dinsdale is the only player to score in 10 consecutive Football League games, a feat he achieved between August 29th 1927 and October 22nd 1927 when he scored 11 goals. In an 11-month period in 1927, Dinsdale played 33 games for us and scored in 26 of them. He is also the only player to score 20 or more goals in a season for us on four occasions (1926/27 with 21, 1927/28 with 26, 1928/29 with 22 and 1930/31 with 20).

The youngest known player to score a goal for us is Andy Hutchinson who was 17 years and 34 days old when he scored at Bradford City on April 13th 2009. His goal on his full League debut saw him overtake Craig Ramsay who was 17 years and 150 days old when he netted against Newport County on February 16th 1980. Jimmy Bauchop, meanwhile, was 37 years and 295 days old when he scored against Wrexham on March 12th 1924, our oldest known scorer.

Only three players have scored a goal without ever starting a League game - Gary Jones with two goals from four substitute appearances, Aron Wilford with one goal from five games off the bench and Brett Storey with one from two.
