In his first full season he smashed the club’s League goalscoring record with 34 goals as the club won the Second Division title. He was also the team’s leading scorer in the following two seasons as he went on to score an astonishing 90 goals in 141 games. He was also the first player to hit four hat-tricks for the club in the Football League.
