Linnets frontman returns to Garden Walk for the first time since leaving in the summer
King’s Lynn Town frontman Adam Marriott is relishing a return to face former club Royston Town on Saturday after switching allegiances in the close season, writes Darion Westwood.
Marriott left Garden Walk for pastures new at Boston United in the summer, after scoring 31 goals in all competitions for the Crows.
However, his move to the Pilgrims failed to work out – but his rise in form has seen him bag ten goals for the Linnets already this campaign.
The 27-year-old said: “They were really good to me to be fair. They got me back when I was struggling after I left Lincoln.
“I scored more than 30 goals for them and there were some good times last year.”
Having not been back since he left the club, Marriott stated his desire for a good reception from his former employers. “I don’t know, hopefully I’ll get a good one as I scored goals for them.
“I got on with all the boys there and the manager, so yeah, hopefully, a good one.
“Hopefully we can get the result, I can’t be going back there and losing.”
Marriott also stressed the importance of the dangers that Royston possess, saying: “They’re just outside the play-offs at the minute.
“I think they’re going with a bit more youth this year so it’s been a bit up and down for them, but on their day they’re a good team, so we’ll have to be wary of them.”
