  Jim Hall was top goalscorer for Northampton Town in the 1975/76 season, scoring 21 of the 87 League goals scored by the Cobblers on their way to the runners-up spot in Division 4. What was remarkable though was in that promotion-winning season Northampton used 19 different players in League matches and of them 15 scored goals, including regular goalkeeper Alan Starling who scored from the penalty spot in the 5-2 victory over Hartlepool in April. The four who didn't score - who included the second-choice 'keeper - only managed 16 League appearances between them so could perhaps be excused from getting their names on the scoresheet.

 


"
You can't say my team aren't winners. They've proved that by finishing fourth, third and second in the past three seasons."
Gerard Houllier, showing that Liverpool weren’t winners!
