Dan Quigley has promised King’s Lynn Town fans a season to remember following his surprise return to the club on Monday.

The controversial midfielder says he owes supporters a memorable campaign after his acrimonious exit from the club more than a year ago.

Quigley was shown the door by Linnets manager Gary Setchell after a series of no-shows during the club’s last stint in the Northern Premier League.

And the 26-year-old recognises it is payback time after his misdemeanours of the past.

Quigley said: “I’ve got something to prove to the fans. I know that I owe them big time.

“King’s Lynn deserve to be challenging for the Southern League title.

“It’s a move that I couldn’t turn down and I want to repay the supporters for letting them down the last time I was here.”

Northamptonshire-based Quigley played for Rushden & Diamonds last season, scoring six times in 37 appearances during two spells.

After his departure from the Walks, he angered Linnets fans further by saying that Rushden and Diamonds were a bigger club than Lynn on social media.

“We all say things in the heat of the moment,” admitted Quigley.

“It was the same when I was at Long Buckby. People had doubts about me when I signed for Lynn the first time around, but I proved them wrong.

“Hopefully I can do that again. If I wasn’t committed to the club I wouldn’t be coming back.”

Quigley was part of the Linnets’ squad which won back-to-back promotions in 2011/12 and 2012/13.

He offers Linnets boss Setchell some versatility, having also played at centre-half and as an emergency striker during his previous spell with the club.

“They were two great seasons and probably the best two seasons of my career,” said Quigley.

“I can’t wait to come back after seeing the squad that Setch has put together.

“People know what they are going to get from me on the field and that’s 110 per cent every game.”

n King’s Lynn Town’s club shop is planned to re-open for the first pre-season game against Spalding Utd on July 12.
