Former Brock Football Academy star Danny Ings was narrowly beaten to the Premier League’s Golden Boot award last season by just ONE goal.

Southampton striker Ings and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tied for second place on 22 goals.

The famous Golden Boot trophy instead went to Leicester City and England marksman Jamie Vardy, who finished the season on 23 goals.

Danny Ings has come a long way since his playing days at the College.

The 28-year-old from Netley played for Bournemouth, Burnley and 2020 Premier League winners Liverpool, before signing for Southampton – the club he supported growing up.

He overcame serious injuries to relaunch his career with a prolific run of form for Southampton and has now been tipped for an England call-up.

Despite not winning the coveted Golden Boot, Ings did win another accolade: BBC Sport’s Surprise Player of the Season Award, voted for by fans.
