Top Scorers

2018-2019 Top Scorers Tables

Below is the Top Scorers Tables for both Divisions

Results are taken from various sources including information sent into the League and that entered onto FA Full Time.

Results shown here only include games played in the SCEFL Divisions and Challenge Cup

With the season now over these are the final results. Congratulations to the Golden Boot winners.

With a goal in the Challenge Cup Final Paul Vines has taken the Golden Boot trophy for the Premier Division scoring 33 League and League Cup goals this season.

For the second year running Dan Bradshaw finishes in second place with Anthony Edgar completing the top three.

With the First Division campaign now over we can proudly announce that Harry Harding is the winner of the Golden Boot for season 2018-19.

Harding and Ryan Golding have occupied the top two places all season and have both remarkably scored more goals than the number of games they have played. Although League Cup goals are taken into account for these results none of the top 3 have netted in that competition so well done to all three for being so prolific in their league games.

The season is not quite over for Harding yet as he has a Hospitals Charity Cup Final to look forward to and then in the following week his side will nervously looking out for the FA decision to see if they have made it as one of the lucky second placed teams that will get promoted up to Step 5.

INFO ON HOW WE GET SCORERS INFORMATION

With every SCEFL game the home side will forward a message after every goal with the scorers name and time of goal and we will use that information to quickly update the website.

Unfortunately the person may make an error with the scorers identity or send 'Scorer Unknown' if unsure who got the goal. This generally only happens with the away sides scorer and indeed almost half of the away scorers names sent through end up being wrong and we have to change as soon as we are made aware. We use a few other ways of trying to get the info correct but depending on how active the scoring side is on Social Media will reflect on how long it takes. During the games we try and do regular sweeps of Twitter to check the info and will usually change an away scorer to that mentioned on there, especially if it has been written with a decent description of how the goal was scored and therfore is probably good information. This is not an easy task to carry out though on a Saturday as goals are flying in so we prioritise just using the initial information given and looking to confirm and correct as needed when we can later.

Some teams are better than others at sending the info, some are always correct and some rarely get an away scorer right.

In the hours after a game we will also get calls from Team officials correcting us on away scorer information aswell and regularly get players saying it was them that scored and not the person mentioned.

A big frustration from wrong scorer info sent in on a Saturday is that by 5.30pm the 'Non League Paper' report is written by an outside party from the info on our website. At that stage it is common for a few names to still be wrong and that player misses seeing their name in print in the paper. For us, In the long run it is not a major issue as we will then use Match Reports, Social Media, Corrections sent in and then finally the FA Full Time website to confirm the info and compile our statistics like Top Goalscorers records.

The FA Full Time report is the main confirmation point as that is written by each clubs' secretary and rarely contains errors. The only issue being that this can take a number of days to get done by them and this is why there is a delay to the Scorers Leaderboard getting updated.

In this table we only use SCEFL goals but we also collect info from all competitions for us to refer to in reports and features throughout the season.

It is worth noting that the Top Scorers chart on the FA Full Time website is not a good place to refer to as most clubs make small errors on it, for example most will award a player two goals for every penalty scored as there is a penalty column and they will tick that AND tick goal, meaning he is awarded two goals instead of one for every penalty scored.

I have good written records of every goal and game and am confident that by 2-3 days after the match and after looking at all info available to me my records are correct. I would prefer this to just be 2-3 hours but this is Non League football and we are all volunteers so this is where we are at. The easiest way to speed this up would be if Clubs put the details on the FA Full Time website sooner, many do it in 1-2 days but some can take a week.

These records are made easier by getting the correct info quickly so if you notice an error or want to challenge me on something please do so via email - website@scefl.com
