Striker Junior Morias has described his move to National League King's Lynn Town as a 'rebirth'.

The Linnets completed the signing of 25-year-old Jamaican this morning as manager Ian Culverhouse continues his rebuilding plans at The Walks.

Morias, who made his name with Peterborough United in League One, said: "It's a fresh start for everyone, I call it a rebirth.

"I'm a fighter and a goalscorer, I play with passion and wear my heart on my sleeve. Having a manager that believes and trusts in me is a big thing."

I’m a good finisher, will work hard for the team and can score all types of goals. I’ve heard good things about how the manager likes to play and good things about the fans so am looking forward to them being back in the ground."

A former youth-team player at Fulham, Morias turned professional at Wycombe Wanderers in July 2012.

From there he was loaned out to Hendon and Boreham Wood, before he joined Boreham Wood on a free-transfer in October 2014 and scored the club's winning goal in the 2015 Conference South play-off final.

He then joined Whitehawk on loan in January 2016, before being sold on to St Albans City in July 2016, where he impressed enough to win a move to Peterborough United in January 2017.

In July 2018, Morias joined EFL League Two Northampton Town on a two-year contract, however after one year he moved to St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership.

On the arrival of Morias, Linnets boss Ian Culverhouse said: "Junior is a really experienced player who has played at a higher level as well as the one we're at.

"When he became available and showed an interest that he was keen to come, I jumped at the chance of bringing him in.

"I know what he's all about. He wants to play consistently and we'll give him that opportunity here.

"He will give us a some real attacking power up there and he's got a fantastic goalscoring record.

"He's hungry, as are all the new players who will be coming in."

Morias is Lynn's fourth arrival of the summer and came on the day when Blackpool completed the signing of talented midfielder Sonny Carey.
