Harry Kane – who broke Alan Shearer’s Premier League record for goals in a calendar year – topped the chart with 39 goals, with Godden sitting eighth in the list compiled by Sky Sports.

The 26 year olds impressive numbers saw him end the year just one goal behind Manchester City star Sergio Aguero and two ahead of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.

Godden started 2017 on fire and he was the leading scoring in the professional divisions as of early March having scored 12 goals in the same number of appearances.

His form saw Boro make a push for the Sky Bet League Two playoffs before missing out on the final day of the season while he made a clean sweep at the club’s end of year award ceremony.
