Gary Setchell is challenging King’s Lynn Town’s strikers to fill the void left by Rob Duffy’s exit.

The Linnets’ top scorer quit the club by mutual consent yesterday morning having spent just six months at The Walks. However, his former boss insists he has no interest in seeking a new frontman.

Setchell, whose men visit Wroxham tonight for a Norfolk Senior Cup semi-final, said: “I’m not going to bring in another striker. I’ll give the other lads a chance. If anything I’m looking to bring in a defender. I spoke to Duffs and explained the situation. I feel in our remaining games I can have a look at our other striking options, while giving him the chance to find a new club before ‘deadline day’. He’s not the type of player I can afford to have sitting on the bench.

“He’s a genuine lad who cared about the club and possesses a lot of qualities, it’s just a shame it didn’t work out how we’d have both hoped it would when he signed. This gives our other strikers the chance to stake a claim for the rest of this season and next.”

Duffy, 31, who has struggled with injury problems for the last few years, scored 13 goals in 28 appearances. Seven of those strikes came from the penalty spot. His departure leaves Setchell left to choose from frontmen Massiah McDonald, Sam Mulready, Ewan Clarke and Charley Sanders – on loan from Boston United until the end of the campaign.
