Vardy Wins Premier League Golden Boot

Jamie Vardy is officially the first player in Leicester City’s history to win the Premier League Golden Boot after netting 23 goals across a remarkable 2019/20 season.

- Jamie Vardy becomes the first LCFC player to win the Premier League Golden Boot
- The 33-year-old striker netted 23 goals in 2019/20, more than any other player in England's top-flight
- Vardy’s final total includes one hat-trick and five braces for the Foxes this term
- City’s No.9 is the 24th different player to win the award in 28 seasons 

The Foxes striker beat Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (22), Southampton’s Danny Ings (22) and Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling (20) to scoop the prestigious individual award.

Vardy, 33, got off the mark this term with a strike during City’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in August, before also netting twice against AFC Bournemouth

Another double, in a 5-0 success over Newcastle United in September, was quickly followed by an incredible run of 11 goals in eight consecutive games between October and December.

That intrepid run – just three games short of his own Premier League record – also included a hat-trick at St. Mary’s Stadium as the Foxes defeated Southampton 9-0 on 25 October, 2019.

Jamie Vardy became the first player in the Club's history to win the Premier League Golden Boot.

Since then, Vardy has scored against Manchester City, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Bournemouth – also joining the Premier League’s illustrious 100 club earlier this month.

His hat-trick on the South Coast was added to by five braces and 10 solitary goals, while Leicester have won on 13 occasions in which Vardy has found the net this season.

All of this means that Vardy, who won the Club’s 2019/20 Player and Players’ Player of the Season award, is the first Fox to be awarded the Premier League Golden Boot.

Congratulations, Jamie!
