King's Lynn Town Football Club have confirmed they have appointed a new physio for the forthcoming season.

Arriving in the role for Lynn's return to the National League North is Carol Holland who replaces Nick Tolentino, who has stepped down from the post due to university commitments.

Carol, who works for FCV International FootballAcademy and Carol's SportsRehab during the week, brings a wealth of experience with her, having worked for Blackstones, Holbeach, St Neots and, more recently, Stamford in the last 19 years.

After leaving her job with the RAF in 2000, Carol, 48, started down the sports massage route before successfully completing an FA Diploma in sports injuries and becoming a physiotherapist.

"I've never worked at Step Two football before, so I'm really looking forward to it," said Carol, who lives at Deeping St James.

"There's a lot that needs addressing on the medical front and it's about moving the department forward to the level where it needs to be.

"It's a challenge I'm really looking forward to."

On Carol's appointment, Linnets director of football Robbie Back said: "Getting Carol to the club is a real coup for us. She is very experienced in her field and is another good addition to the team."
