Having just checked the figures for 1998/99, Whits was third in the list with 26, beaten by Steve Clark (St Albans) with 28 and Gary Abbott (Aldershot Town) with 33. Paul Cobb was only joint seventh with 22. Junior Lewis was ninth in the full list that season with 20, and headed the list of second highest goalscorers for a club.

I suspect that the last player before Whits to head or come very close in the league goalscoring chart for a season would be David Hyde in 1964/65 with 35 league goals, to which he added 24 in cups and 4 in frioendlies. Although Tony Harding, Tony Bass, and Iain Dowie all reached or were very close to 30 goals in a season at least once, their tally of cup goals would have dropped them down a league goalscorer list.

David Hyde and Gerry O'Rourke must also have been close in 1963/64, with 29 and 27 league goals respectively.
