GOALS

The scorer of Leicester Fosse's first senior goal at Filbert Street was James Atter.

Steve Whitworth's only goal for Leicester was against Liverpool in the Charity Cup Final at Filbert St. in 1971 City won 1-0.

Jon Sjoberg ("The Tank") is the only City player to have contributed 2 own goals in one game- against W.B.A. April 1966. City lost the game 1-5.

10 City and Fosse players have had a single goal deleted from their records following the abandonment of games in which they have scored. They are...George Warren, Tommy Brown, Frank Large, Gene O'Callaghan, George Dewis, Ike Evenson, Billy Jackson, Danny Liddle, Arthur Chandler, and Willie Muncie.

Leicester Fosse's last goal conceded under that name was in their final game away to Clapton Orient in 1914. Unfortunately it was an own goal scored by Charles Barron.

Goal keeper Gordon Bradley (City / September 1942 to February 1950) scored one goal against City at Filbert Street in 1956 for Notts County as an outfield player after he'd injured his hand in goal.

Goal keeper Ian Black (Fulham) was similarly playing in an outfield position when he scored a consolation goal for Fulham in City's Second Division home win of 6-1 in August 1952.

Goalkeeper Alex Stepney (Manchester United) briefly became his side's leading scorer when he put a penalty past Peter Shilton during City's 2-1 win at Old Trafford in September 1973.

Peter Shilton remains City's only goalkeeper to score at league level with a long-distance effort against Southampton in a 5-1 win to City in October 1967.

Arthur Chandler scored the most home goals for City...173 at Filbert Street (Arthur Rowley scored 163)

Arthur Rowley scored the most away goals for City...102 (Arthur Chandler scored 100)

Chandler scored 15 times against each of Aston Villa and Newcastle. Rowley totalling 15 aginst Bury.
