King's Lynn Town manager Ian Culverhouse has provided an update on Cameron King following today's goalless draw against Maidenhead United at The Walks.

The Linnets boss has confirmed that King is unlikely to feature again this season – and possibly beyond – after an injury-hit campaign with the club.

Culverhouse said: "He's waiting for tests and we'll know where to go with it after that once the results have come back to us.

"I don't think we'll have him again this season and we will have to see where we go with him once the summer gets here.

"He's had such a stop-start season. It started in pre-season where he felt something in his legs and it's been like that all the way through.

"We've seen glimpses of the really good, talented lad that we know he is but we haven't had that consistent run of games from him."

The 25-year-old playmaker has only featured 18 times this season and has only completed 90 minutes four times in a disrupted campaign

The Linnets included Rory McAuley in his defence for the time in almost three months following a combination of injury and furlough.

It was the Magpies who carved out the first opportunity with Rohan Ince forcing Theo Richardson into an excellent stop with his fingertips.

The Norfolk side broke straight upfield with Tyler Denton testing the reflexes of Rhys Lovett before the visiting shotstopper denied Alex Kiwomya with his body a couple of minutes later.

Eleven minutes before the break, the sought-after Sonny Carey started a move which saw Kiwomya pull the ball back for Gash whose effort was deflected behind by Ryheem Sheckleford for a corner.

Maidenhead came within inches of taking the lead as half-time loomed when Alfie Egan's long-range effort crashed against the woodwork.

There was still time for Carey to hit the post for the hosts after some nice interplay between Michael Clunan and Rob Howard.

The first chance of the second period fell the way of the Linnets after Michael Gyasi burst into the Maidenhead box only to be denied by the legs of Lovett.

Some trickery from visiting substitute Josh Coley almost provided an opening for the Magpies in the final quarter but the impressive Kyle Callan-McFadden was on hand to clear the danger.

The game saw the Linnets bid farewell to on-loan midfielder Ethan Coleman, who delivered another impressive performance in the middle of the park.

With his contract at Brackley finishing, and with Lynn in no position to pay him, the 24-year-old has played his last game for the club.

"I thought he was magnificent for us again," said Culverhouse after the game.

"He has been a revelation for us coming in and I think he has enjoyed it as well because we've got him on the ball.

"He's a talented boy, he really is and we'll miss him. We thank him for being part of it."
