That was the season that…wasn’t: Goals.

By Ian Townsend

We’re continuing our round up of the unfinished 2019-20 season in numbers, by looking at goals. Who scored the most? And who didn’t!


It’s a little difficult to look at goal statistics and draw any meaningful conclusions when many of our clubs, due to the weather, still had a quarter or even a third of their matches still to play. But at the same point it would be a shame to ignore good performances- and the other type! So we’ll go through the goals, and see where it takes us.
