Manager Damian Hilton has agreed to given the former Norwich City and King's Lynn midfielder a run-out on a pitch that has now been rabbit-proofed and made safe with sunken wire fencing around the perimeter.

Hilton said: “We have a built a useful squad, but I do not want any of them to pick up pre-season injuries. We've been training hard but on Saturday I shall probably limit the players to 45 minutes each especially if the heatwave continues.”
