WWI
George Camsell After WWI George Elliott had continued where he left off before the war, and was top scorer for three of the seven seasons, before he retired in 1925.

However, t
he period between WWI and WWII was dominated by the phenomenal George Camsell, who scored 345 goals in 453 matches for Boro. In the 1926/27 season Camsell scored an incredible 59 goals in just 37 games.

His record was broken the following season by the great Dixie Dean, who scored 60 for Everton, however, the Boro star started two games less! Following his debut season in 1925/26 the Durham born player was Boro's top scorer for ten consecutive seasons, until a young Mickey Fenton took over prior to the outbreak of WWII.

Camsell spent over twenty years at Boro, and after playing a handful of matches during WWII, he hung up his boots and joined the Ayresome Park staff.

WWII
Brian Clough Mickey Fenton followed in a similar fashion to George Elliott and continued where he had left off before the war, being top scorer for three consecutive seasons after the war.

The next prolific scorer would be a certain Brian Clough who scored 202 goals in 222 games over a six year period, before his move to Sunderland in 1961, where his career would be cut short through injury.

In more recent times there were major contributions from John Hickton and Bernie Slaven who topped the charts for six and five consecutive seasons respectively.
