The Club's Leading Goalscorers' awards have rewarded players topping the scoring lists annually for many years, based upon goals scored in ALL matches – league, cup and friendlies.

There have been separate awards for the three Temple Fortiune teams, going back to season 1976/77 when the Club first participated in Sunday League football. Opinion has often been divided in the past as to whether goals scored in competitive matches only should count. But since the Leading Goalscorers' awards were always presented for the annual highest tallies which included friendlies, the original criteria was never altered over the years.

So what if only league and cup goals counted, the 'meaningful' goals scored in competitive fixtures as opposed to those netted in 'meaningless' friendlies? Well, that is where the TFFC Golden Boot Trophy comes into play – arguably the Club's ultimate top scorers' accolade!

We've taken the leading goalscorers of the First Team, Second Team and Old Boys Team, compared their records each season, and 'awarded' the GBT to the annual top marksman across the Club! Some would say that this is the proper way of deciding any TFFC leading goalscorer since the competitive goals are the only ones which should really count! We say 'awarded' because the Club has never actually recognised the Golden Boot 'winner' as an official Club Award each season. But this list of alternative top scorers is worthy of inclusion on the website for prosperity to 'reward' those netting the most competitive goals.

The trophy displayed below is symbolic of what the TFFC Golden Boot award would probably look like if this was indeed an official Club Award. And beneath the images of engraved plates you will find a full list of the top two annual scorers of competitive goals across the Club, together with the statistics to back up each inclusion. For every individual named in first place, there is no tangible award as such to be presented but the very inclusion in the list on the website makes each Golden Boot Trophy 'winner' an ultimately 'real' TFFC leading goalscorer!
