King's Lynn Town striker still undecided about his future with National League outfit

The future of King's Lynn Town striker Adam Marriott is still uncertain – but he hasn't ruled a possible return to The Walks.

Marriott has spoken to the Lynn News about his future as he ponders one last crack at full-time football.

The Linnets are understood to be keen to agree fresh terms with Marriott, who has plundered 58 goals in only 76 appearances for the Walks outfit since joining them from Boston United.

But while discussions have taken place between Lynn and the hotshot, the 29-year-old, it still remains unclear where the hot shot will be playing his football next season.

Marriott said: "I'm keeping fit and waiting to find out what's going on. I'm pretty much in the same boat, but I haven't had any more offers from other clubs.

"I still haven't written off signing for King's Lynn Town at the minute, but it is in the hand of my agent as to what happens next.

"I've always had ambitions of getting back into the league game and, although my agent is speaking with a couple of clubs, there is nothing concrete at the moment.

"I'd love to stay at King's Lynn as the club has done brilliantly for me, but if a league club came in for me I'd be silly not to listen to what they had to offer.

"If it did come to an end with Lynn it would be a massive shame as I've had a brilliant two years there and loved every minute of it.

"It has been difficult for me not knowing what is going on and I want to hit the ground running next season, wherever it may be."

Marriott scooped the SK Kits National League North Player of the Year award after bagging 28 goals for the Linnets last term.

The former Cambridge United, Lincoln City and Stevenage frontman but up a formidable partnership with Michael Gash as the Linnets completed back-to-back promotions.

"We had one hell of a season and it would be hard to top that if I did return to King's Lynn or move somewhere else," he said.

"It was great to be promoted again. It was a bit of a strange ending, but I think we deserved it.

"The fans voted for the award so it was amazing to win it. I appreciated everyone who voted for me as there are some really brilliant players in that league."
