Heading into the Promotion-off final weekend, we take a look at the latest news in The Vanarama National League.

Andre Coker has made his deal at Maidstone United permanent. He arrived at the Gallagher Stadium in January on-loan from Premier League Crystal Palace and following his release from Selhurst Park, manager Jay Saunders was quick to ensure they secured his signature.

Magnus Okuonghae and Darius Osei have both left Maidstone United, continuing the club’s summer shakeup., which see’s multiple loan players coming into the side.

Boreham Wood’s Luke Garrard praised his players as they created history by getting to Wembley.

“We spoke at the start of the season and said that we can get out of this league,” he said. “That wasn’t a soundbite – it’s where we felt we was a club and as a group at that time.

Tranmere’s Andy Cook won the Golden Boot, with 26 goals, after trailing Danny Rowe almost all season, until Cook scored four times against Gateshead.

Vanarama National League top scorers:

Andy Cook (Tranmere Rovers) 26 goals

Danny Rowe (AFC Fylde) 24 goals

Macauley Bonne (Leyton Orient) 22 goals

James Norwood (Tranmere Rovers) 20 goals

Bromley have sold 15,000 tickets sales as they prepare for Wembley.

Neil Smith’s side take on Brackley at Wembley later this month looking to get their hands on some silverware to end their campaign.

Maidenhead United`s young prospects Josh Kelly and Sean McCormack will return to the club next season following a successful campaign on loan at Bostik League South play-off winners Walton Casuals.

Over the season-long loan spell at Walton, striker Kelly (pictured scoring for Walton) scored 40 goals in fifty appearances, whilst winger McCormick hit the target 9 times in his fifty-two games.
