King's Lynn Town defender says team will only get better in National League

Defender Alex Brown says King’s Lynn Town will only improve going into tonight’s National League clash at Maidenhead United.

The Linnets opened their season by holding last season’s play-off semi-finalists Yeovil Town to a point in a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

And the marauding full-back, who was named in the National League team of the day, feels the team is only going to get better the more they play together.

Brown said: “I think we will only get better the more games we play. There is so much quality in the side, it’s about the new players building little connections with the others all over the pitch.

“You have to credit us that Yeovil had to change formation and the way they play at half-time to get a foothold in the game.

“Our performance will give us a lot of confidence. We’ve got a point on the board and it gives us something to build on.”

Brown, who came through the junior ranks at Sheffield United, made an immediate impression on his first competitive game for the club.

“You want to make a good impression on your debut, especially with it being on television,” said Brown.

“It’s good to get off on the front foot. I saw a lot of the ball in the first half.

“That was one of the reasons I came to the club because of the way the Gaffer wants to play. It suits me down to the ground.”

Brown, 21, is expecting a different kind of test in Berkshire this evening.

“The gaffer has already told us that it will be a completely different game on Tuesday and that we will have to earn the right to play. They are a physical side so we’ve got to be prepared for that.”

The Magpies, who are managed by former West Ham United midfielder Alan Devonshire, opened their campaign with a 3-0 defeat at Sutton United on Saturday.

Culverhouse wants his players to reproduce Saturday’s display at York Road, saying: “We have to produce it every week because if we don’t then we are going to get our backsides smacked.

“As long as we out-work teams and are on par with teams we will be alright.

“We are not big on numbers anyway so everyone will get their chance.

“If they can delivering performances like that we are going to be in for an enjoyable season.”
