King's Lynn Town striker Adam Marriott to spearhead club's attack in the National League after agreeing terms
King's Lynn Town striker Adam Marriott will spearhead the club's attack in the National League next season.
The prolific frontman has agreed a return to The Walks despite harbouring ambitions to return to the full-time game.
Marriott’s future had been up in the air, despite Lynn securing promotion to the National League.
Linnets director of football Rob Back said: "I speak on behalf of everyone at the football club when I say we are truly delighted that Maz has agreed to stay with us for next season.
"It has been a real slog to get this deal over the line but everything is now completed, which I think is a real shot in the arm for our supporters, sponsors and everyone who has an interest in King's Lynn Town football club.
"I think that secretly Adam has always wanted to stay with us here at Lynn and I think the fact we can offer National League football to him also swayed his decision.
"He's a proven goalscorer and I'm looking forward to seeing him bulging the net again in our colours next season.
"I would like to thank everyone who has assisted in getting this deal arranged and confirmed."
Marriott, 29, has become a real favourite among Lynn supporters since his arrival from Boston United in October 2018.
The Suffolk-based frontman has plundered a remarkable 58 goals from only 76 appearances in the blue and gold.
Thirty of those strikes were came last season - a feat that saw him win the golden boot award as the Linnets completed back-to-back promotions.
The ex-Lincoln City striker has formed a formidable partnership with the experienced Michael Gash over the past two seasons.
Now Town supporters will be able to see them renew their double act when the action begins.
When asked about his future last week, Marriott told the Lynn News: "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."
