Arthur Chandler – 24/25 – 38 goals
The Club's all-time record goalscorer enjoyed his best-ever season with Leicester City during the 1924/25 campaign as Peter Hodge's men won promotion from the Second Division as champions. Courageous and resilient, Chandler is an icon in Foxes folklore and he netted 273 goals at Filbert Street. Thirty-eight of those came during his second full season at Leicester, including a hat-trick against Coventry City in January.
Ernie Hine – 30/31 – 31 goals
Thirty-one of Ernest Hine's 156 goals for Leicester City were scored during the 1930/31 campaign, six years into a run of 10 consecutive First Division seasons for the Club. Although City finished a modest 16th under Willie Orr's guidance, Hine was in super form, netting three hat-tricks, including four goals against Blackpool, but remarkably fell short of the top-flight's main marksman, Tom Waring from Aston Villa, who scored 49 goals.
Jack Bowers – 36/37 – 35 goals
Another key figure behind a memorable promotion, again as Second Division champions, in 1936/37, was forward Jack Bowers, who registered 35 goals for the Foxes. Regarded as one of England's top strikers before his move from Derby County to Leicester in 1936, Frank Womack completed the transfer with City languishing in the second tier. By the end of the season, Bowers' goals had catapulted Leicester to the very top of the table.
Arthur Rowley – 56/57 – 44 goals
It is fitting that Leicester City's biggest-ever seasonal goals tally was secured by the most prolific marksman the Football League has ever known. With a career total of 434 from 619 league games, nobody has ever better Rowley's record, while he is second only to Arthur Chandler for his feats in a Foxes shirt. Rowley scored 265 goals in total for City, including an astronomical 44 in 1956/57 as the Club won the Second Division title.
Frank Worthington – 73/74 – 24 goals
A hero of Leicester City's swashbuckling 'Entertainers' side of the mid-1970s, Frank Worthington's most lethal season in front of goal enabled Jimmy Bloomfield's men to secure a top-half finish in the First Division, as well as an appearance in the FA Cup Semi-Finals. A truly original character in the Foxes squad, Worthington was central to their hopes of success - and the stylish nature of many of his 24 goals in 1973/74 typified Leicester City at the time.
Gary Lineker – 84/85 – 28 goals
One of the most famous players to ever pull on the Leicester City shirt, home-grown Gary Lineker's best season in the scoring stakes was also his last in the Club's colours. Winning the Golden Boot - shared with Chelsea's Kerry Dixon - Lineker was at the height of his powers for Gordon Milne's Foxes in 1984/85. He would go on to achieve greater success, staring for Everton, Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur and, of course, England's national team.
Alan Smith – 86/87 – 22 goals
Despite Gary Lineker departing to Everton in 1985, Steve Lynex and Alan Smith remained at Filbert Street. Smith, in particular, stepped up for the Foxes and, 1986/87, he produced his personal best tally of goals with 22 strikes, but it wasn't enough to prevent relegation for Bryan Hamilton's side. Smith's protracted transfer to Arsenal came the following summer, too, ahead of a five-year stay in the Second Division.
Steve Walsh – 92/93 – 16 goals
An icon to a whole generation of the Blue Army, Steve Walsh is usually remembered as a tough-tackling centre-back, but that's not quite the whole picture. A year before his Wembley play-off heroics against Derby County, Foxes manager Brian Little deployed Walsh as a striker, reaping a return of 16 goals for the former Wigan Athletic man. That season ended in a second successive play-off heartbreak for City, but they finally won promotion in 1994.
Tony Cottee – 98/99 – 16 goals
Signed from Malaysian side FA Selangor in 1997, Tony Cottee was unfairly assumed to have already played his best football when he arrived in Leicester. However, the former West Ham United and Everton striker was an excellent signing by Martin O'Neill, netting 34 times for the Foxes in total, including a 16-goal haul in 1998/99 as Leicester finished 10th in the Premier League, after being beaten by Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup Final.
Paul Dickov – 02/03 – 20 goals
City's first full season at their new home, now called King Power Stadium, saw them return to the second tier following six campaigns in the Premier League. Paul Dickov, signed by Dave Bassett a year earlier, was the main main for Micky Adams in the First Division, linking up perfectly with Brian Deane, and he netted 20 goals for the Foxes to seal a runners-up spot. That meant City bounced back to the top-flight after just one season away.
Matty Fryatt – 08/09 – 32 goals
During Leicester's only-ever season in the old Third Division, referred to now as League 1, Matty Fryatt's 32-goal tally represented the best individual Foxes total since Arthur Rowley's 44 goals in 1956/57. During a campaign which included successive hat-tricks over Christmas, Fryatt - a Craig Levein signing in 2006 - was integral during Nigel Pearson's maiden year in charge and helped Leicester secure the League 1 title in style.
Andy King – 10/11 – 16 goals
Academy graduate Andy King was another vital member of City's squad during their League 1 triumph and he continued to shine in the Championship too. A season which began with Paulo Sousa in charge ended with Sven-Göran Eriksson overseeing matters at King Power Stadium as the Foxes made an ultimately unsuccessful bid for promotion. King's 16 goals that term, though, was his highest-ever seasonal tally for the Foxes.
David Nugent – 13/14 – 22 goals
Nigel Pearson's return to the Club in 2011 would, eventually, result in Leicester's promotion back to the Premier League after 10 years away. Although a Sven-Göran Eriksson acquisition, David Nugent truly shone for the Foxes under Pearson's management and his 22 goals in 2013/14 - when combined with Jamie Vardy's 16 - were enough to fire the Foxes back to the top tier as Championship champions.
Jamie Vardy – 15/16 – 24 goals
Leicester's greatest-ever season saw also their best Premier League striker truly arrive onto the top-flight scene. Having already earned an England call-up a term previously, Jamie Vardy was in the form of his life for Claudio Ranieri's City in 2015/16, netting his highest tally for the Foxes as the Club lifted the Premier League title, despite pre-season odds of 5,000/1 to do just that.
Jamie Vardy – 19/20 – 23 goals
Although scoring one goal less than his 2015/16 total, Jamie Vardy's 23 strikes in 2019/20 were enough for him to finally scoop the Premier League Golden Boot. A fifth-placed finish was enough for the Foxes to return to European football, too, while Vardy picked up the Club's Player of the Season award for the first time, alongside the Players' Player of the Season prize, voted for by his Leicester team-mates.
