League champion at six
YESTERDAY we named Tony ‘Bomber’ Brown seventh in our list of Albion’s all-time top ten greatest goalscorers.
At six we have Fred Morris – who scored 112 goals in 263 appearances for Albion between 1911-24.
Morris was the spearhead of the Albion side that carried off the First Division title in 1919/20, scoring 37 of Albion’s record 104 goals that season, topping the First Division scoring charts in the process, the first Albion man to do so. He won two England caps at the end of that campaign.
He became the first Throstle to score five goals in a single league game that season as Notts County were beaten 8-0 at The Hawthorns on October 25th 1919.
He was also the first Albion player to reach 100 league goals in 1921/22.
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
7. Tony Brown
6. Fred Morris
To qualify for the prestigious top ten, players must have scored at least 100 league goals for the Baggies.
We then sorted our list by goal ratio (goals scored divided by appearances).
