History Week 6

There can be little doubt that over the years, despite the large number of famed strikers who have pulled on the St George jersey, none can have had a better strike rate than Bruno Beddoni, who had three seasons with the Saints from the 2001/02 season.

Bruno made 45 starting appearances with a further 7 as sub, but amassed an astonishing 37 goals in those games, for an average of a goal every 1.4 games.

This total included two four goal hauls. Bruno famously scored four in an away game at Bonnyrigg White Eagles in a 5-3 win in March 2003 and then, to prove that was no fluke, scored another four in a 7-4 win against Central Coast at St George Stadium three weeks later.

Bruno’s record with St George was:

                        Games                                    Goals

2001/02           11 (1)                           9

2002/03           16 (1)                           14

2003/04           18 (5)                           14

Total:               45 (7)                          37
