League Two Top Scorers: The Most Likely Candidates

As with the two leagues above it in the English Football League, judging who will be the most prolific forward in League Two is no easy task.

Last season, Tranmere Rovers' James Norwood won the accolade, scoring on 29 occasions. This earned the forward a lucrative summer move to Ipswich town, however. Subsequently, he is out of the running this year, having moved on to bigger and better things.

Tyler Walker was joint runner up last campaign. Again, one of the things which make sit unlikely for a player to be crowned top scorer in the same league, two seasons running is that many promising young goalscorers are only on loan at their clubs. Indeed, this was the situation with Walker who played for Mansfield in League Two last campaign. He returned to Championship Nottingham Forest where he will be hopeful of replicating his tally at a higher level.

Who is in the running then? Let's consider some of the more likely candidates...

1)    Mansfield Town – Nicky Maynard

First, let's examine the player that finished as joint-runner up in last seasons goalscoring charts, along with Tyler Walker. Nicky Maynard is a well-known figure in the Football League; he has played for ten different clubs in a 14-year career. Now 32, Maynard brings a wealth of experience with him in his new adventure with Mansfield Town. He will hope the club will be the perfect destination; they finished in 4th place last season and only narrowly missed out on promotion.  With Maynard's goals - he has scored over 120 in his career - John Dempster will be expecting to push for a League One place again this year. In fact, Maynard could well have been playing in League One himself this year had it not been for the torrid financial saga which is unfolding at his former club Bury. Bury were promoted automatically from League Two last season, finishing in 2nd place, but have since struggled to find the funds to pay their players and staff.  Had they been able to, it's likely that Maynard would have stayed with the club. This is ultimately a state of affairs which benefits Mansfield who will be grateful to have a player of Maynard's calibre in their ranks.

2) Salford City – Adam Rooney

Salford City poacher Adam Rooney (no relation to Wayne) is another talented forward who could well finish the season as top goalscorer. Rooney is about to embark on his second season with the financially well-backed Manchester team. Last season, they competed in the Conference National League and were promoted, easily, as champions. Rooney scored 21 goals that season and he will be expected to repeat his heroics this term. At the age of 31, the experienced Dublin born striker could now be described as something of a veteran. Salford City are his tenth club and, for his previous teams, he has bagged over two centuries of goals. The last time he made an appearance in League Two was with Bury way back in the 2007/08 season - he was on loan from Stoke City at the time. Over the decade since, Rooney has matured significantly as a player and, despite being promoted last season, Salford City will be looking to make it two in a row with him leading the line.

3)    Bradford City – James Vaughan

Another experienced player on the list, James Vaughan will play for Bradford City in League Two this season after being released by his former club Wigan at the tail end of last season. Having begun his career playing for Everton in the Premier League, the club where he would spend seven seasons, Vaughan possesses truly top-level pedigree. He spent the subsequent years of his career playing mainly in the Championship and League One, with a couple of seasons with Norwich City punctuating this period. His first season with the Bantams will also be his first spent in League Two. It has been a while since Vaughan has been what one could describe as a rich vein of form; the last time he reached double figures five seasons ago with Bury. Hopefully, for Bradford City fans at least, the step down will prove to be where he finds his level. The Yorkshire club were relegated from League One last season, finishing in last place and nine points from safety. During this season they scored just 27 goals, a shocking return for any team. With Vaughan on their books however, they will be praying that their fortunes improve and that he can fire them to back where they feel they belong: League One.
