Boro’s all-time top scorer, Camsell's astonishing record in front of goal stands as testimony to his supreme talent as a centre-forward, with almost a goal a game in his 14 seasons at Boro.

He made an inauspicious start with the club when, having signed for from Durham City in October 1925, he made only four appearances in his first season.

There was little hint of what was to follow. 

In the next season of 1926/27, the ex-miner smashed all known goalscoring records notching 59 league goals, including nine hat-tricks (he scored a club-record 27 in total), in 37 appearances. It would have been more had he agreed to take the penalties.

This was no flash in the pan as the modest hero went on to be club top scorer for the next 10 seasons, culminating in a career total of a staggering 345 goals from 453 games. 

It seems strange that Camsell played only nine times for England; less strange that he should net 18 times. Although Dixie Dean narrowly eclipsed his league record of 59 strikes the next season, the name of George Camsell is still revered by every Boro fan.
