Legendary footballer Alan Shearer broke numerous goal scoring records during his playing career, which started as a 15-year-old schoolboy at Southampton FC in 1986 and finished twenty years later, in 2006, when he retired from his beloved Newcastle FC.

Alan Shearer scored 422 goals in his career at club and international level. During his career he averaged 25 goals a season, which is prolific by anyone's standards! On his full debut for Southampton he scored a hat.-trick against Arsenal, earning rave reviews and setting him on the road to international stardom.

Overall, he scored 23 goals for Southampton, 112 goals for Blackburn Rovers, 148 goals for Newcastle, 13 goals for England Under-21 and 30 goals for the full England team.

Shearer´s goal scoring record is better than one goal in two games and his return of 30 goals from 63 caps means that he stands fifth in the all-time England goalscorers chart, along with Nat Lofthouse and Tom Finney.

So the 23 for southhamton + the 112 for blackburn is 135 + 148 = 283 then add the 13 goals from england under 21s and you have 296, then top it off with 30 goals for england and you out of this 422 goals he have apparently scored, where do the other 96 goals come from?

in case you don't know how the EPL works, there are many non-league games played as exhibitions or during champions league play. so your 148 goals for his Newcastle days actually gets inflated to 202 total for Newcastle, and I'm sorry I don't have total figures for Blackburn and Southampton, but the same applies for those teams as well. the 422 figure appears to be correct I have seen it from many sources.

league goals =/= total goals for the club.
