During his 3 separate spells with the Club, the new First Team Player of the Year Steve Feiger has scored over three hundred goals for Temple Fortune which is by far the highest tally by any single player. Below we commemorate his marvellous personal achievement.

DESPITE THE SWIRLING Regents Park wind, Jamie Simpson managed to swing over a high left footed centre across The Veras goal which found its way to Yali Mamouri on the right. He returned the ball into the middle where Steve Feiger rose to nod past the stranded goalkeeper. As the green-shirted players celebrated Temple Fortune’s newly acclaimed 2-1 lead, Steve bellowed loudly: "That’s the 300 up!" The poignant moment was not lost on the Club’s all-time leading scorer and the great beam on his face clearly signified what this marvellous achievement meant to him.

Three hundred goals for the Temple Fortune Football Club, approximately one tenth of the Club’s entire tally since formation. Such an excellent total by an individual is not testimony to mere ability alone, although one would never doubt Steve’s goalscoring attributes in any shape or form. To achieve his feat requires a considerable amount of appearances which speak volumes for his loyalty and dedication to the TFFC as much as anything else.

With three spells for the Club under his belt, the first commencing as far back as Autumn 1981, Steve is on his way towards three hundred appearances, making him the third longest playing member for Temple Fortune behind Peter Kyte and Jonathan Davidoff. Almost two thirds of his goals tally have been for the First Team for whom he has now finished leading scorer on a record six occasions, including season 1999-00.

Steve has also topped the Second Team scoring charts three times, has been the First Team Player of the Year twice (the most recent coming at the close of the 1999-00 season) and took the Chairman’s Merit Award on three occasions. He now holds first place in the Club’s overall goalscoring list by quite a wide margin, ever increasing his lead over second-placed Steve Levy, who has fallen some 120 goals behind.

Well done, Steve Feiger. Let’s see if he can reach 400 goals for Temple Fortune before he turns forty. Don’t bet against it, folks!
