Lynn boss Ian Culverhouse has vowed not to go overboard with end-of-season signings as he builds for the club’s future.

He wants to assess what talent he currently has at his disposal rather than flood the dressing room with lots of new faces.

Culverhouse told the Lynn News: “The reserves are doing well and have got some good young boys coming through.

“I don’t want to crowd the squad with lots of loan signings between now and the end of the season.

“It’s important that I get to have a good look at all of the players currently involved with the club first.”

The new manager’s long-term plans have also been boosted with the news that Ryan Hawkins is ready to make a return to non-contact training following his serious leg injury against Cirencester Town last month.

It was feared that Hawkins may be ruled out for the remainder of the season but the youngster could be back sooner rather than later.

“It’s great news for this football club that Ryan isn’t going to be out as long as first expected as he was starting to play really well before his injury,” admitted Culverhouse who didn’t cross paths with the youngster during his assistant managerial days with Norwich.

“I didn’t know him at Norwich but did come across him when I was scouting.”

At the time of going to press yesterday, Culverhouse was trying to make his first signing since taking over the managerial reigns at The Walks.
