Nash has been a revelation for Maldon and Tiptree in the Ryman North Division last season scoring a sensational 37 goals in 46 appearances, including a 20 minute hat-trick in the 5-4 win over Haringey Borough that fired Maldon into the Ryman North Division Play-off Final.

Nash had joined Maldon and Tiptree last September after spells at Great Wakering Rovers and Billericay and proved to be very versatile up-front. Liam’s goalscoring exploits have not gone unnoticed among Clubs much higher up the football pyramid with scouts from several making regular visits to Park Drive to watch the striker.

Gills League One Doncaster Rovers actually had Liam on trial during their League Two campaign last season and boss Darren Ferguson is keen to have another look at the striker before deciding whether or not to offer him a deal at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Ady Pennock and Gills have also stepped up their interest along with several other League One and League Two clubs who are actively monitoring his situation. Nash has not yet made a decision on where he will continue his career next year, however he has confirmed it will not be at Park Drive.

Wearing number 28 in the pre-season match was Welling born 26-year-old Billy Bingham (pictured left), a midfieder released by Crewe Alexandra at the end of last season. Billy made his first senior appearance playing for Dagenham & Redbridge after starting in 2006 with the Youth Team set-up at Crystal Palace.

While at Palace he was twice on loan to Sutton and Grays to gain experience and in July 2015 Bingham joined Crewe Alexandra after rejecting offers of a new contract with Dagenham.

He scored his first and only goal for Crewe in a EFL Cup defeat against Blackburn Rovers in 2016 and he was released this summer and looking for a new Club.

Wearing number 29 was 31-year-old winger/midfielder Martyn Woolford Pictured right) who was released by Fleetwood Town at the end of last season. Martyn started his career in Northern Counties football before joining York and then Scunthorpe playing in the Championship.

Martyn then moved to Championship rivals Bristol City where he stayed for two years before moving to Millwall who were another Championship side but was released after their relegation to League One in 2015.

Martyn then signed for League One Sheffield United, where he played one season before joining their divisional rivals Fleetwood Town.

MWoolford has also represented England in the C team in 2008, earning two caps. He made his debut against Grenada and earned his second and final cap against India.
