The wanted men?

Just like with clubs (with the greatest respect to both) at the higher ends of the footballing pyramid, both Notts County and Wrexham will be bracing themselves for bids for their star strikers.

In the case of The Dragons, they might have an easier task of keeping hold of their star man Paul Mullen, especially as he moved to the club for family reasons. But football is a business and as the cliché goes every player has their price.

Mullen who’s reportedly the highest-paid player in Non-League, helped the Welsh side to a phenomenal 111 points in the season, his goals were crucial as promotion rivals Notts County had a goal machine of their own in McCauley Langstaff.

In the case of both men, they have had something that one would call journeymen careers and are arguably living their own dream of playing in England’s football league.

With the respective wages difference in Scotland, clubs as prestigious as Rangers and Aberdeen would do well to sign players in this mould. Famously former Dons striker Adam Rooney left Pittodrie to join then-fifth-tier Salford, where he was getting paid more than he was in Scotland.

With the case of Langstaff and Mullen, these two players have been the ones who have grabbed the most headlines, but this year, in particular, has shown Non-League or National League as it’s called is as good as it has ever been.

Sides such as Oldham, Notts County, Wrexham, Torquay, Scunthorpe, Yeovil and Southend are all in the fifth tier and this only further goes to show the star-studded names in the league.

Next season Rochdale and Hartlepool will be joining the National League club. The big clubs purchase players all across Europe, but for those clubs in the Premier League and Championship, note there are some good players plying their trade there.

You see, there are talented players right on your doorstep, you just have to look.
