King’s Lynn Town Reserves have been integrated with the main part of the club.

A club statement posted at the weekend said: “Some six years ago an agreement was reached between the chairman of King’s Lynn Town Football Club (KLTFC) and a group of parents/supporters who wished to preserve the future of a representative reserve team.

“This was after the chairman of KLTFC had decided that at that particular time it was not financially viable to support a reserve team.

“Since that time the reserves have achieved continued success and the numbers of spectators supporting the team has substantially increased.

“Since his appointment earlier this season, the general manager (Gary Setchell) of KLTFC has stated that it is his wish to see the reserve team re-integrated as an integral part of KLTFC structure. To that end, as from next season the management of reserve team administrative and financial activities will be co-ordinated by KLTFC.

“This news is another forward step in the structure of the football club and with the recent additions of the Under 16s, Women’s team and links to the Kings Lynn football in the community can only be a positive step in the right direction.

“The success of the reserves is due to the efforts of a great number of volunteers, some who have since moved on.”

Thanks also went to sponsors, particularly Double G Clothing who have year on year supplied playing strips and training resources.

Linnets striker Sam Mulready has chosen to join AFC Stamford. Boss Gary Setchell confirmed that Mulready was offered a deal but it was turned down as he is looking for regular first team football.
