It has been a frantic week in the Vanarama National League with a lot of news to report on.

Two managers coming in and one manager going out. John Eustace takes over the post at Kidderminster Harriers. He will be hoping to change the luck of the reds with them already being relegated and look to cement some stability before getting off in the new campaign.

Dean Frost has been relieved of his post at Welling United both parties agreed that to move forward for the new season it was the best decision. Welling were quick to replace Frost with former Bromley manager Mark Goldberg who will step in with immediate effect.

There were only two midweek games with the end of the season fast approaching and teams vying for promotion and teams fighting for their life at the bottom of the table.

FC Halifax find themselves in the relegation zone by goal difference so they needed all the points they could get. Halifax played hosts to Eastleigh who are challenging for promotion.  Two teams who are at the complete different end of the table played each other at The Shay in a 0-0 stale mate. Both teams will feel as though a point was not enough.

Grimsby Town travelled to Woking in search of another victory to cement their place as a force to be reckoned with in the play offs. They didn’t disappoint their travelling supporters as they dispatched of Woking with a clinical 1-3 victory, Padraig Amond was the star performer bagging himself a hat-trick to take his goals for the season to 30.

First team regular Richard Orlu has signed a new one year contract with Dover who are looking to push on and secure their play-off place with a victory over Kidderminster on Saturday afternoon. The Whites will be hoping this news will be a boost for such a big fixture.

Aldershot Town announced that they will be welcoming Queens Park Rangers to the EBB stadium in a pre-season friendly. The Shots who already know they will be playing National League football next year will be hoping that the visit of Queens Park Rangers on July 1st will be a good test for the upcoming season.
