THE Highland League football season has revealed some top performers in the art of goalscoring.
Just three months in, the campaign has already produced a flurry of goals with four marksmen into double figures for goals in all competitions.
Formartine United's Jonny Smith netted twice against Clach last night to make it 14 for the season, and nine in his last seven outings.
He leads the league scoring charts, just ahead of Clach sensation James Anderson who scored twice in the same game to take his tally for the term to 13.
Not far behind is Ross County teenager Matthew Wright, who has found the net in eight of his last nine matches on loan at Brora Rangers.
Wright grabbed a hat-trick in Brora's 4-1 win over Wick on Wednesday.
Scott Barbour is one of four Fraserburgh attackers regularly finding the scoresheet, and although he didn't score in Broch's 6-1 success over Lossiemouth, he has 11 goals this term.
