A top­scor­erslook at past re­veals Na­tion­ala spec­tac­u­larFirst Di­vi­sion de­cline for most Golden Boot win­ners. 2015/16 Thabiso Ku­tumela (18 goals) Af­ter top scor­ing with 18 goals for Baroka FC, Ku­tumela was then snapped up by Or­lando Pirates, yet played just five league games for Bucs last sea­son, scor­ing one goal. 2014/15 Phumelele Bhengu (22 goals) Bhengu has scored just one goal since his im­pres­sive 22-goal haul for Thanda Royal Zulu two sea­sons ago. A move to Su­perS­port United proved fruit­less as he made just four sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ances in the 2015/16 sea­son, be­fore join­ing NFD side Royal Ea­gles where he man­aged just one goal in 15 games. 2013/14 David Zulu (16 goals) Six­teen goals for Black Leop­ards earned Zulu a move to Chippa United, where five goals in his six months in Port El­iz­a­beth led to a switch to Kaizer Chiefs. No goals in five ap­pear­ances for Amakhosi re­sulted in two loan spells to Chippa, which only reaped two goals in 25 games. 2012/13 Nkosi­nathi Mthiyane (14 goals) Joint-top­scorer Mthiyane joined AmaZulu af­ter Thanda Royal Zulu, but scored just two goals over the next two sea­sons for Usuthu. He man­aged four goals in 26 ap­pear­ances the year af­ter, be­fore sign­ing for Or­lando Pirates. No game-time in six months led to a loan move to Golden Ar­rows in Jan­uary, where he made 13 starts with­out scor­ing.
