The payments - made by clubs in the National League System - between February 2 2021 and January 31 2022 is more than double the £271,838 dished out on agents' fees in the same timeframe a year earlier.

Hawkridge and Preston are no-longer with the club while Leesley is on a season-long loan from Harrogate Town.

The Pilgrims spent £1,000 on agents' fees the previous year, meaning their spending has more than trebled.
