King’s Lynn Town will remain in the Southern League Premier Division for next season.

The club were waiting to hear the outcome of a shock appeal regarding their summer switch from the Northern Premier League.

But the club received email confirmation from the Football Association this morning that the proposed appeal had been dropped.

It leaves Lynn free to return to the Southern League for the first time since 2008.

A club spokesman said: “We have been told today that the appeal has been dropped and that we are free to play in the league next season.

“Everyone at the club is very pleased that the uncertainty of where we will be playing is now over.

“It would have been very unfair on manager Gary Setchell to have to change his plans again at such a late stage.

“We are delighted with the outcome and are looking forward to life in the Southern League.”
