Tom Matthews of Toolstation Northern Counties East League champions Brighouse Town ended the season as the Premier Division’s second-top scorer with 43 goals.

The striker bagged 37 in the league and six in cup competitions to finish behind only Kieran Debrouwer of eighth-placed Heanor Town, who totalled an impressive 56.

Danny Facey of Albion Sports finished joint-fifth with 37 as his side ended sixth in the table.

Marcus Edwards will finish as top scorer in Division One but could yet add to his 44 goals for Eccleshill United, who play in the League Cup final at Valley Parade on Saturday.

The Eagles front man, who is currently one goal ahead of Shirebrook Town rival Aaron Moxam, has scored 15 times in cup competitions to date – including the winner in the West Riding County Cup final.
