OUR team of non-league all-stars is rapidly taking shape.

We're looking to crown the top performers from last season by asking you to vote for your leading manager, goalkeeper, full-back, centre-back, midfielder, winger and striker.

A poll is appearing on our website every day and already the picture is becoming clearer, with thousands of votes cast and leading contenders emerging in each category.

All will be revealed next week but now it's time to root for your favourite midfielder - the engine room of any winning side.

Your nominations revealed five candidates and, like the centre-back poll, we have two players from one club.

Yesterday's ballot featured a tussle between Maldon and Tiptree pair Jack Cawley and Billy Roast.

Today's features two FC Clacton maestros in the shape of Jack Clampin and Harry McDonald, alongside Brightlingsea Regent's Jake Turner, Coggeshall Town's Connor Hubble and Maldon's Laste Dombaxe.

Once again, it promises to be an intriguing battle and Clampin and McDonald will be hoping to put the cherry on their respective cakes after fine seasons for the Seasiders.

Both were linchpins of their club's record-breaking campaign as Tom Austin's men finished sixth in the Thurlow Nunn League premier division - their best-ever finish - and managed a record 19 victories.

Turner, a multiple player-of-the-season winner at Brightlingsea, has just penned a new two-year contract with the Bostik League outfit.

And in trying to scoop most votes, he will be hoping to build on last term's success when he won the supporters' player-of-the-year award, along with the players' player and manager’s player prizes.

Our other contenders are both from Bostik League division north - Coggeshall's Hubble and Maldon's Dombaxe.

Hubble emerged through the youth ranks at QPR before joining Colchester United's Academy, making his Football League debut in 2013.

He had a sublime season for the Seedgrowers, who lost in the play-off semi-finals against Maldon.

He won four of their five end-of-year awards, including being the supporters', players' and manager's player-of-the-season.

Last but not certainly not least, you might plump for Dombaxe.

The midfielder helped Wayne Brown's Maldon finish third in division north, beat Coggeshall in the play-offs but then lose in the final, after penalties, against Heybridge Swifts.

He chipped in with four goals and made 24 appearances.

So there you have it - our five midfield magicians who badly need your votes in order to win our fun end-of-season poll.

There are now just two more positions to fill and tomorrow we'll be asking you to back your top wing wizard, followed by the battle of the goal kings - our star strikers - on Friday.
