Fresh firepower is top of Ebbsfleet United’s summer shopping list.

Danny Kedwell played 53 games this season and spent much of the campaign up front on his own but he’ll be 35 in August. Darren McQueen has been out injured since September and the strikers brought to the club in the last 12 months have made little impact.

Danny Mills spent half the season on loan at Dartford while Antonio German and Febian Brandy played just 67 minutes between them. There were cameo roles from Southend loanee Norman Wabo during the run-in but Tranmere, who knocked Ebbsfleet out of the National League play-offs on Saturday, quite simply had more attacking options on the pitch.

Fleet boss Daryl McMahon said: “When you look at their two forwards (Andy Cook and James Norwood) and the two wide players, that was the difference. They’ve got 49 goals between them and they’re two good players, proper players.

“Their movements and power is good, they work hard and make it difficult for you. That’s somewhere we can improve if we can get the right one at the right price.

“We’re certainly in the market for a couple of strikers.”
