Who was the highest goal scorer in UK soccer history?

Answer

Internationally, Sir Bobby Charlton, who scored 49 goals for England. Domestically, the Premiership's all-time leading scorer is Alan Shearer of Newcastle United.

**Correction to original answer**

The question is asking about the highest goal scorer in UK soccer history and, to the best of my knowledge, that would be a Northern Ireland striker by the name of Jimmy Jones (born 25 July 1928) who scored an incedible 646 domestic goals, nearly double Alan Shearer's 374 domestic goals. I am not aware of any other player having scored more than 646!

the records state that Jimmy McGrory of Celtic is the all time leading goalscorer in British football with 550 goals
