Former King's Lynn Town defender can't wait to get started at National League North Kettering Town
Former King's Lynn Town defender Ryan Fryatt can't wait to get started with Kettering Town.
The Poppies - one of Lynn's main rivals in the National League North last season - announced the signing of the central defender on Saturday.
The long-serving defender, who amassed 349 appearances for the Linnets over ten seasons, was released by the club earlier in the summer.
Fryatt was part of the Lynn team that gained promotion through the play-offs after Kettering had won the Southern League Premier Central title last year.
But a serious knee injury ruled him out of much of last season as Ian Culverhouse's side went on to clinch successive promotions.
Fryatt told the Northamptonshire Telegraph: “It’s a change for me but I am looking forward to getting started."
“John (assistant-manager Ramshaw) got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to come over for a chat and I liked what I heard.
“It was a frustrating season for me because of injury but King’s Lynn have done well over there and to get promoted is a great achievement.
“It’s always been a good battle against Kettering. Their teams have always shown good heart and good determination and I think, through Paul and John, they will be rising up the league.
“Anything is possible in football and I am sure we will go well.”
