Martin Offiah is now the highest scoring English man of all time.
He got the record after scoring in the London-Huddersfield game.
He is third in the all time charts after Brian Bevan and Billy Boston.

Well done Martin, especially after his great personal tragedy of the last
week.

Cheers,

Andrew.

I thought his father was a Nigerian Judge?
Where was he born? and how come he's English and
not a Nigerian?

Well done anyway Martin highest scoring Englishman or/also
highest scoring Nigerian.

He's English because he was born here. I don't know what origins his
father had but according to the article I read last week he moved to
Nigeria for the job when Martin was a ***ager having previously
practised here. I think I've got that right but I could be wrong.
