King's Lynn Town boss won't stand in the way of prolific frontman if he leaves

King's Lynn Town boss Ian Culverhouse says he won't stand in the way of striker Adam Marriott if the frontman gets an opportunity to step back onto the league stage.

Marriott, scorer of 28 league goals last season, has yet to commit to Lynn for next season despite being offered a new deal at The Walks.

If the popular striker does choose to leave, he will go with Culverhouse’s blessing.

Culverhouse, in an interview with the National League’s official website, said: “It’s not just his goalscoring, his all-round game is fantastic.

“We’ve had him for two years now, he is always first to mention the big man (Michael Gash) next to him who puts his body on the line.

“Maz has pulled the goals out and yes there are whispers of him moving on and back into pro football. If he does, he goes with our blessing - he has been fantastic for us.

“Don’t get me wrong, we would be a better side with him in it but if he gets his dream move, then great for him. He’s been fantastic for this club.”

Lynn's boss has kept most of the players who have helped his success during his two spells at The Walks.

And although more new arrivals are likely in the coming weeks, Culverhouse said: “I always believed that if you keep your core group together then you always have a chance.

“They know how you work, and they set the standards. They know the demands and they know what’s required.

“We’ll do that again. We have a couple of other targets, and hopefully we can get them over the line. We have seven or eight players who have been with us for a while now.

“But it’s going to be very, very hard. We are going to be a part-time club in pretty much a professional league - we’ve earned the right to have a crack at it, so we’re going to give it our best efforts.

“We really can’t wait for it all now. It’s a big league with big teams and hopefully we won’t be lambs to the slaughter. I know this group will give it their best shot. What an adventure we are going to have."
