Stars boss Lyon is delighted with his reserves for next season, and said: “We are very pleased to have them both back.

“Lewis Kerr is doing everything he can to get back to the level he finished in August last year and I’m sure he will.

“Lewis Rose is a local lad and like Lewis Kerr he came through the National League. I think it is important that in the draft we can use local lads where possible.

“Lewis is excited about coming back to King’s Lynn and I’m sure he will pick himself up next year.

“I believe he has a good team behind him for next season, and he is determined to get back to the level he showed two years ago.”
