The experienced Gary Mills returned to King’s Lynn Town Football Club as coach to assist manager Gary Setchell and his assistant Neil Fryatt.

Mills is a UEFA “B” qualified coach. He signed for the club back in 2014 on loan from Boston and will return to the club with a vast experience and honours.

Mills has won Football League titles, Conferences and the FA Trophy with Stevenage. Recently he has had a spell at Wrexham as assistant manager where they reached the FA Trophy final at Wembley. Last season he had brief spell as manager of Rugby Town.

Lynn manager Gary Setchell said: “It’s fantastic to bring in someone like Gary Mills to the staff who also holds a UEFA B qualification and plenty of experience of playing at a high level. Gary will also sign on as a player and will be used when needed.”

Leaving the football club is fans’ favourite David Bridges who joined back in 2014. David will be retiring from playing to concentrate on his successful business ventures and spend time with his family.

Born in Huntington, Cambridgeshire, Bridges began his career with local side Cambridge United whom he joined at the age of 8. He progressed through the club’s youth system before signing his first professional contract in February 2002.

Setchell thanked the midfielder for all his efforts for the club and wished him all the best for the future: “David will be missed by a lot of people at the football club but I totally understand his decision to call it a day on his fantastic playing career and pursue his business interests and spend more time with his young family.”
