Fans’ favourite Lee Stevenson says he is delighted to be returning to The Walks next season.

Stevenson became the 11th Linnets player to agree terms with the club on Tuesday night.

The Sheffield-based attacking midfielder, 31, was Lynn’s top goalscorer last campaign with 16 goals in 53 appearances.

Stevenson said: “It’s great to be coming back. There is a lot of travelling and it does take a lot out of you but Setch (Gary Setchell) and myself have a lot of respect for each other.

“I’m enjoying my football as much now as I did back in my Eastwood days in 2010.

“It’s important that I get myself fit and ready over the summer. It will be nice to be ready going into the new season.

“I made a slow start last season. I picked up a little niggle in pre-season and took that into the first few weeks of the campaign.

“There’s a good feeling in the squad. I’ve got belief in myself and belief in the players around me.”

Stevenson first played at The Walks, on loan from Sheffield Wednesday, in March 2003 before a serious knee injury slowed his career and he left the club in November 2006.

After a long battle to return to full fitness, he played professionally with Mansfield Town before eventually returning to Lynn, initially on loan, in March last year.

Yesterday it was confirmed that centre-back Kern Miller had left the club and was heading to Spalding United.

The much-travelled defender found the commute from Lincoln to Lynn too difficult each week without a car.
