King's Lynn Town striker Michael Gash selects his best-ever playing XI




King’s Lynn Town striker Michael Gash needs little introduction when it comes to the football field.

The frontman has been a revelation since putting pen-to-paper for the Linnets in the summer of 2017.

Here, the Peterborough-based man selects his best XI of players he has played with.

Formation 4-4-2

Goalkeeper - Graham Stack: Played with Graham at Barnet as he was coming to the end of his career. His passion and desire for the game was incredible and made some great saves.

Right-back - Andrew Yiadom: So versatile and would bomb up-and-down all day long. His quality on the ball was terrific and has a great attitude too. Now with Reading in the Championship.

Left-back - Jamie Day: One of my best friends whose career was ended by a serious back injury. Played for both Posh and Crawley. Dangerous at set-pieces and possessed a great left foot.

Centre-back - Chey Dunkley: Now at Wigan. He was so strong, quick and great in the air at Kidderminster. Worked hard every day and always believed in his own ability.

Centre-back - Rory McAuley: The ultimate type of player you want in your team. Puts his head where it hurts and his body on the line. Not bad on the ball either.

Left midfield - Jay Lolley: Never looked back after scoring a hat-trick for Kidderminster in a pre-season friendly. So much natural ability and now with Nottingham Forest.

Right midfield - Michael Clunan: A top skipper and an even better lad. Prepared to help his team-mates at all costs. His quality on the ball and work rate is something I admire.

Central midfield - Ryan Jarvis: One of the best-ever players to wear the King’s Lynn shirt. So many incredible displays in the last couple of seasons. Able to dictate and control a game.

Central midfield - Rob Wolleaston: Probably the best player I’ve played with. So much quality and could do everything with a ball.

Striker - John Akinde: Top player and a real handful. Strong and quick and has just got better and better over the years. Has won promotion with both Barnet and Lincoln City.

Striker Adam Marriott beats the goalkeeper but his effort goes wide of the post. (31701119)

Striker - Adam Marriott: The magic man. Literally capable of scoring from anywhere and the best finisher I’ve come across.

Substitutes

Alex Street: Would always have him in my squad. Fantastic character in the changing room and a great person off the pitch.

Frazer Blake-Tracy: So close to making my starting XI. What a player who has a great future in the game.

Josh Simpson: Box-to-box midfielder who could run all day.

Kyle Storer: Another top class captain. Willing to put his foot in and horrible to play against. A joker of the changing room.

Aaron McLean: Played with Aaron as he was coming to the end of his career. You could see in training just how good he was.
