King’s Lynn Town have signed former Norwich City striker Ryan Jarvis from Lowestoft Town.
The 30-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Linnets, who have also signed another Lowestoft player, Frazer Blake-Tracey to their ranks while Connor Marshall has left the club.
Jarvis said: “I am very happy to have made the move and cannot wait to get started with (manager) Ian (Culverhouse) and the lads.
“I’m only 30 years of age so I’m not an old man yet and I know that I have lots to offer the club. I know that the team is a very young one so hopefully my experience will help to steady the ship going forward.
“I came along to the Norfolk Senior Cup final and there’s certainly some good players around the club and I’m genuinely excited about the new season.”
Culverhouse added: “I’m very pleased to have got Ryan on board with us for the new season.
“He brings great experience to the club, something which were lacking towards the end of last season. He has great ball retention and can also pick a pass as well. He’s also a very comfortable Step Three player and I know he is a very valuable acquisition to the squad.”
Jarvis, born in Fakenham, came through the ranks at Norwich City, scoring a memorable goal for the Canaries at Carrow Road in 2005 playing against Liverpool.
He had a series of loan moves before joining Leyton Orient in 2008 and then York City before moving to Lowestoft two years ago.
Blake-Tracey operates on the left-hand side of the back four – an area in which Lynn recently lost Jordan Yong.
Marshall had been offered the chance to return to pre-season training with the Linnets, but has taken the option of a more concrete offer from Corby Town.
