1909-10 (30 goals)

Bootle-born Parkinson first caught attention when he fired 20 goals in 21 appearances during Liverpool’s season in the Second Division in 1904-05.

A series of injuries prevented him from becoming a mainstay in the side and building on that budding potential in the subsequent seasons.

But he returned to fitness and form in 1909-10, scoring 30 goals in 31 league appearances – more than anyone else in the First Division – as the team finished second in the table.
