From top goalscorer to best attendance – 5 top five Hellenic Premier Division stats you need to know

To local supporters it won’t be a surprise that Berkshire clubs dominate the attendance table but the top stat we’ve picked out is that of the 20 Hellenic Premier Division goals Brackley Town Saints have scored, Josh Bowden has scored three quarters of them.

Please note, statistics are only for Hellenic Premier Division matches played before 15th September 2017.
