Culverhouse has brought in Dion Frary, from Dereham Town, for an undisclosed fee.

Frary, 19, has signed a two-year contract at The Walks.

The youngster was part of the Norwich City PDC and also a team-mate of skipper Michael Clunan during his time at The Magpies.

The defender, who hails from Wells-next-the-Sea, is a product of the Fakenham Town’s youth system.

He made his first team debut in October 2013 as a 16-year-old substitute away to Diss Town in a League Cup tie.

He went on to establish himself in the Ghosts’ first team, making 38 appearances and scoring four goals in the 2014-15 season.

His performances resulted in attention from other clubs and he joined Dereham Town on a two-year deal back in June 2015.

Speaking to kltown.co.uk, Frary said: “Leaving Dereham was a bit of a wrench but I felt that the time was right to test myself at a higher level and coming to King’s Lynn means that I can do that.

“I’m quite adaptable and can play in a number of different positions across the back line.

“I’m really very excited at the prospect of playing Southern League football with King’s Lynn and hopefully helping the club to a successful season.”

Linnets boss Culverhouse added: “We watched Dion play a number of times last season and he really is a talented footballer.

“He is comfortable anywhere across the back four and if required can play in midfield.

“I really am very pleased to have managed to get Dion to the club and I look forward to working with him next season.”

Frary’s arrival follows hot on the heels of Frazer Blake-Tracy, Craig Gillies and Ryan Jarvis, all of whom signed earlier this week.
