Former King's Lynn Town goalkeeper signs for Southern League Division One Central side Bedford Town

Former King's Lynn Town goalkeeper Alex Street has completed a move to Bedford Town.

As expected, Street, who played 466 times for the Linnets and kept 139 clean sheets, has linked up with former Linnets boss Gary Setchell at the Eyrie.

The shotstopper has signed a one-year contract at the Southern League Division One Central outfit.

Street left The Walks with the record of having made the most appearances for a Lynn goalkeeper, beating Billy Bedwell's record of 378 that was set in the period 1922-33.

The 29-year-old was part of the successful Lynn side that won back-to-back promotions from step four and three, before winning the National League North last season to achieve Lynn's highest ever league placing.

In all three promotion campaigns, the goalkeeper played every single game and was an integral part of Lynn's climb up the non-league ladder.

Speaking to www.bedfordeagles.net, former Linnets manager Gary Setchell said "I'm delighted that Alex has come to join us at the Eyrie. I've worked with him at Lynn for many years, and his quality as a keeper is one of the best in non-league.

"He has had plenty of interest from other clubs over the last week, so the fact he has chosen to join us here at the Eyrie shows a massive statement of intent."

Bedford Town owner Jon Taylor added "On behalf of everyone at Bedford, I welcome Alex to the club.

"He is a great keeper, renowned around non league, who played constantly at National League North level last season, and the National League only a few weeks ago. It is a massive signing for the club."
