The 2018/19 campaign is well underway and clubs across the country are on the lookout for the next hidden gem. Rush Football, then, have decided to do the hard work for them. Here are three non-league strikers to keep an eye on this season…
Lee Robinson – Newhaven FC (@leemtrobbo)
After notching 58 goals last season (44 in the league) it comes as no surprise that Newhaven striker Lee Robinson is already the leading goal scorer in the Southern Combination Premier Division. The pacey striker has scored seven goals in the opening five games as the East Sussex club aim for promotion to the Isthmian League for the first time in their history. The 29-year-old has spent much of his senior career at Newhaven and despite having numerous offers to play at a higher level, he has opted to remain at the Trafalgar Ground. While Lee plies his trade at Newhaven, his brother Jake who is also a striker, plays for National League South side Billericay. In fact, the Robinson brothers scored a staggering 110 goals between them last season.
Michael Capon – Bedfont & Feltham (@MikeyCapon)
Combined Counties Division One side Bedfont & Feltham have started the 2018/19 campaign in blistering form. In their opening six league matches, the club based in Greater London have scored a staggering 29 league goals, 13 of which have been scored by Michael Capon. The clinical striker notched four goals in the 11-0 demolition of Bagshot, while also netting hat-tricks against Sandhurst Town and British Airways. In the 2017/18 campaign, Capon scored 34 times in 36 outings for league rivals Staines Lammas. Should the clearly talented striker maintain his goal scoring form which is turning heads, we expect to see him playing at a higher level sooner rather than later.
Ryan Golding – Welling Town (@Golding_ryan1)
After six games, newly promoted Welling Town sit top of the Southern Counties East Football League largely thanks to their leading goal scorer Ryan Golding. Of Welling Town’s 22 league goals, Golding has scored nine which includes hat-tricks against Rochester United and Greenways and also a brace against Lewisham Borough (Community). With 28 league games remaining, it is crucial that Welling Town keep Golding in top form should they wish to continue their rise through the football pyramid.
