Shine in the National League and there is a very strong chance that a career in the Football League beckons.
History is littered with players who have made their mark in non-league football's top tier and gone on to carve out fine careers in the Football League and beyond.
We've had a look at five players who have the potential to shine next season.
A biased choice, possibly, but there is untapped potential in the 21-year old Chester FC striker and that is something that obviously new Blues boss Jon McCarthy recognises.
Alabi is very raw and has facets of his game he needs to improve but that will come with time, nurture and the chance to put down some roots and get an extended run of games, something he will benefit from at Chester.
Anyone who witnessed his four-goal salvo in the memorable 8-2 win over Aldershot last season will attest to the fact that there is a real talent there that, if coaxed, could cause mayhem in the National League next season. He could be a real gem.
While the Wrexham summer signings seem to have underwhelmed some Dragons fans, the addition of big striker White is an interesting one.
Forget your trequarista roles and 3-1-2-3-1 formations, in the National League there is still very much a place for 6ft 4ins bruising strikers.
The Bellshill-born Scotsman has been banging them in for fun north of the border, with spells at Stirling Albion and Livingston proving extremely fruitful for the former Glasgow Rangers junior.
At 24 he has time on his side and it will be interesting to see just how he makes the transition into the English game. If he starts well then he could very well be the goalscorer that Wrexham so sorely missed last season.
Out of last season's promoted sides it was Moses Emmanuel who caught the eye most with the Bromley striker making the transition with ease and bagging 20 goals in his maiden campaign.
Solihull Moors striker Asante will be hoping to make a similar impact after he topped the scoring charts for the Midlands club with 17 last season as Marcus Bignot's men claimed the National League North title.
The 6ft Dutchman has both pace and strength and his style of play should mean he makes the step up to non-league football's top tier with relative ease.
The 23-year-old has had a taste of the Football League, albeit breifly, through loan spells with Northampton Town and Shrewsbury Town having been a part of Birmingham City from YTS to professional between 2008 to 2014. He will be keen to make his mark next season and secure himself a return to the Football League in the near future.
Former Norwich City trainee Habergham has built on his reputation over the past season and he will be on the radar of many a Football League club.
The 24-year-old left back was a huge part of the Braintree Town side that shocked many by finishing third in the National League last season, belying their part-time status.
An England C international, Habergham was named Players' Player of the Year at the Iron, playing in 54 games during a relentless campaign that saw the Essex club defy the odds throughout.
Another season like the last and Habergham, who arrived at Braintree from Tamworth in 2012, could well be finding the overtures from Football League sides hard to ignore.
Anyone who witnessed the Blues' 1-0 home loss to Rovers in February will know what a tricky customer Mekki can be on his day.
The Chester-born wideman, 24, won the penalty which handed James Norwood the chance to settle the derby from the penalty spot.
Like many wingers, Mekki can be erratic - but he showed enough promise during his debut season at Prenton Park to trigger the offer of a one-year contract for 2016-17.
If he kicks on again, he could take some stopping.
