Re: Topscorer

Hello,

When Liverpool signed Alex Thomson from East Stirling in 1912 the newspaper reports said he was one of the leading scorers in Scottish second division over the last two seasons. I don't know if anyone has statistics for the Second Division for 1910-11 and 1911-12 and confirm this?
