More news, no ads


Jamaican international footballer Jamar Loza has left King's Lynn Town after telling the management team he was unhappy at the club.

The Linnets have this afternoon announced the forward has rejoined National League rivals Woking on an undisclosed fee. Loza had scored two goals against Woking in a 3-2 win for Lynn back in October.

Loza started Lynn's goalless draw against league leaders Torquay United at The Walks on Saturday, but the club received a bid for the player earlier this week.

After the initial bid was rejected, an improved offer was accepted by Lynn yesterday.

A statement on the official King's Lynn Town website says the second offer was more in keeping with the club's valuation of the player.

The statement adds: "The club wishes to make it clear to our supporters that we are not a selling club and did not wish for Jamar to leave. However if a player is not happy here we will not stand in their way if they wish to leave The Walks.

"Since joining the Linnets in the summer Jamar made 11 appearances, scoring four goals.

"The club wishes Jamar well for his future football career."

Among the highlights of his short career at the West Norfolk club were match-winning braces against Barnet and Woking earlier this season.

A statement on the Woking website says: "Jamar, 26, has signed an 18-month contract with the Cards and is available for selection tomorrow in our Buildbase FA Trophy match against Dover Athletic.

"The forward, who can play out wide or through the middle, has had two previous spells at The Laithwaite Community Stadium, on loan from Maidstone United and Chelmsford City. He has made 43 appearances for the club, scoring nine goals."

The Surrey-based club said they were "delighted" to resign the player.

Woking are currently seventh in the National League table, having won six of their 13 games.

Speaking after he netted twice against his new club in October, Loza said: "I'm absolutely buzzing to be fair, but the best is still to come. As soon as the fixtures came out, naturally it was the first one I looked for."

The Linnets had completed the signing of Loza from Chelmsford City in July. He started his youth career with Norwich City and went on to make six senior appearances for the first-team, scoring one injury time equaliser against Huddersfield Town in March 2015.

He made his first-team debut for Norwich in the Premier League, coming on as a second-half substitute against Arsenal in May 2014.
