A bit more info:

Top marksman Russell Smart has hit the net a record 94 times and along with James “Doddy” Dunlop and Charles ” Chas” Scarborough holds the record for scoring SIX in one game. Russell’s achievement in a 12-0 win over Steelend Vics is all the more remarkabe when you realise he was taken off after 45 minutes !!! Always a favorite and always welcome back at Blairwood Park.
