King's Lynn manager to take stock after National League relegation

King's Lynn Town manager Tommy Widdrington says he will have to take stock after seeing his side relegated from the National League.

A dramatic 3-3 draw with Eastleigh ended up being irrelevant in their bid to beat the drop with Aldershot beating Notts County 3-1 to ensure they stay up.

The result sent Lynn through the trap door with both Weymouth and Dover Athletic.

Widdrington said: "It's one of those things where I have to take stock and have a look. I always analyse the staff and myself and see whether we could have done anything differently, but ultimately there was an accountability before I came in the building and that's why we are where we are.

"I genuinely believe I've got as much out of these players as I could, probably more than they thought I could, and made us a lot more competitive.

"I still think there are six teams in this division who are not as good us as and I just wish that I'd been here earlier.

"We came out and played the way we needed to play against this side (Eastleigh) and thought we created enough chances to be more than 1-0 in front at half-time.

"We've let them back into the game and the two goals we've conceded were ricks on our part from really good defenders who have been excellent for me since I've been here."

Lynn managed only eight league wins all season to highlight just how poor a campaign it has been.

They have struggled for goals the majority of the season whilst they conceded for fun at the back until Widdrington's arrival - which probably came a month too late - made them much harder to beat in the second half of the campaign.

Once the dust has settled and the final ball has been kicked in anger at Wealdstone next Saturday, it is believed Lynn will remain full-time next season as they look to bounce back at the first attempt.
