Callum Dolan- Warrington Rylands

Not only is Callum Dolan the Northern Premier League’s top scorer with 12 goals, but he’s also helped a suffering Warrington Rylands gain some stability. Rylands were forced to ship out many of their first team squad due to financial issues, with Dolan’s goals keeping them away from the relegation zone.

The midfielder signed for the Blues in the summer of 2021. New manager Jody Banim called on his players, to take the weight off Dolan, who has become their main outlet for goals this season.

Hayden Campbell- Marine

After impressing in an initial loan move from Salford City in 2020, Hayden Campbell joined the Mariners permanently last summer. After struggling to fit into Neil Young’s starting eleven earlier on, the 20-year-old has now become Marine’s main talisman, scoring seven goals in all competitions so far this season.

His hattrick against Atherton Collieries at the end of last month certainly impressed the Crosby fans. Furthermore a brace against Nantwich Town including an audacious chip made Campbell one to watch for the season.

John Murphy- Prescot Cables

Summer signing John Murphy has proved very valuable for Prescot Cables this season. The forward who joined from Ramsbottom United has started every game since transferring to the Pesky Bulls.

Murphy is their top scorer with six in all competitions, memorably scoring two in five minutes against Skelmersdale United in the Emirates FA Cup Preliminary Round. His general fitness off the ball is noticeable in games. He has started 18 games in a row since moving to the Cables, making him a big asset for manager Kevin Lynch.

Harry Tyrer- Chester

On a season long loan from Everton, Harry Tyrer has already made his mark at Chester, with three clean sheets since competing in the Vanarama National League North. The 20-year-old has played every minute for the Seals this season after putting pen to paper for a professional contract at the Toffees.

Manager Calum McIntyre has described Tyrer as a break thorough signing.

“For us to be able to bring a player with Harry’s pedigree at this level is huge for us”

Elliot Hughes- AFC Liverpool

With eight goals in nine starts, there is no surprise that AFC Liverpool’s Elliot Hughes has caught the eye of Non-League fans in the Northwest Counties Football League. His impact has lifted the Merseyside team up to 3rd, picking up ten wins in thirteen games.

Hughes starred in AFC Liverpool’s 2-0 away win at Prestwich Heys, where he scored both against the side sitting just below them in the table. The attacker signed from St Helens Town, who were disappointed to lose their number one finisher.
