Frontman boosts the options of Thurlow Nunn Division One outfit
Downham Town joint manager Dale Stokes is delighted to have added former King’s Lynn Town striker Jack Frohawk to his ranks.
Frohawk's switch to the Thurlow Nunn Division One North outfit raised a few eyebrows before Christmas and both Stokes and fellow joint boss Craig Dickson are excited to see what the frontman will add to the Memorial Field outfit.
Stokes, whose side host Felixstowe and Walton United tomorrow, said: “We are excited to welcome Jack into our squad. He’s someone that we have both played against and he was always a constant threat.
“Jack will add an extra dynamic to our forward options, bring some raw pace and the option of running in behind will compliment what we already have.
“As soon as we heard he could be available we jumped at the chance to sign him. You just can’t pass up opportunities to sign a proven goalscorer, as we all know they are worth their weight in gold.”
Frohawk made 22 appearances for Lynn's first team, scoring three times during his spell at the Walks, as well as finding the back of the net on a regular basis for King's Lynn Town Reserves.
The youngster made his Downham bow during their 1-1 draw with Fakenham Town - a result which Stokes described as “frustrating” seeing the draw as “two points dropped” instead of one gained.
“It was a very frustrating result. Craig (Dickson), the players and myself definitely felt like it was two points dropped.
“We were pleased with how the boys settled into the game. We felt we had complete control throughout the first half, keeping them penned in for long periods, but without creating a great deal.
“We were made to pay when they got themselves in front, against the run of play, but reasserted dominance and eventually found the equaliser before half-time.
“Chances for both teams were few and far between but we still had the better of the chances and general play.
"Unfortunately we just couldn’t find that final ball and creativity to make the possession count and get the three points.”
