National Game Awards in association with SCL: Young guns are in good company!

WHOEVER wins this year’s SportsBeat Young Player of the Year will be following some big footsteps.

Lee Angol, now at Peterborough, won last season, pictured, a year after Burnley striker Andre Gray. It just goes to show the depth of young talent in Non-League football and this year’s category is just as strong.

To be eligible, a player must be 23 years old or under. No doubt you will have your own picks but here’s a few suggestions to get you started.

Dover Athletic have been one of the season’s stories and their defence in the National League has been brilliantly led by Sean Raggett.

Braintree have some young guns too – have England C captain Alex Woodyard or their tricky attacker Simeon Akinola caught your eye?

Champions-elect Cheltenham Town can thank Billy Waters for 11 goals this season and while Woking haven’t had it all their way, John Goddard has been outstanding for the Cards.

Dayle Southwell tops the goalscoring charts in the National League North with 21 strikes for play-off chasing Boston, while rivals AFC Fylde have had scouts packing out their stands to watch Dion Charles.

Dumebi Dumaka scored 23 goals for Grays Athletic in the Ryman Premier. That saw National League South Maidstone snap up the 22-year-old. Does he get your vote?
