Double winner at eight
YESTERDAY we named Bob Taylor ninth in our list of Albion’s all-time top ten greatest goalscorers.
At eight we have Joe Carter – who scored 145 goals in 414 appearances for Albion between 1921-36.
Carter formed a potent right sided attacking partnership with Tommy Glidden across much of his Albion career, including the unique double season of 1930-31 when Albion won the FA Cup and promotion, still the only club to achieve the feat.
Carter also became the first Albion man ever to be sent off at The Hawthorns, in the First Division game against Blackburn Rovers on 19th September 1931. We won 4-1.
His goalscoring exploits also earned him three England caps, scoring in each game in which he played, amassing four goals in total.
At 11am tomorrow we will reveal the next name in our countdown of Albion’s top-ten greatest goalscorers.
10. Tommy Glidden
9. Bob Taylor
8. Joe Carter
To qualify for the prestigious top ten, players must have scored at least 100 league goals for the Baggies.
We will then sort our list by goal ratio (goals scored divided by appearances).
