King's Lynn Town boss Ian Culverhouse has signed a new deal.

The 56-year-old former Norwich City player and assistant manager put pen to paper on a two-year deal which will keep him at the National League club until the summer of 2023.

“I have spoken to (director of football) Robbie (Back) and (owner) Steve (Cleeve), obviously, at length and I like where it is going at the moment," said Culverhouse.

"It is good to be a part of it because we have got good plans here. And if we get it right - we have got to stay in this league and then it has got legs I think. 

“I am enjoying it. It is a hell of a challenge, it is a great league. Like I have said before, we will come up against really good teams that will test us but we are gradually learning through each game and we will only get better. 

“They (the players) are the ones that do it – you can come up with all these fandangled ideas and things like that but it is these who have to go out there and perform and we are lucky to have a good bunch.” 

Culverhouse is in his second spell at The Walks and has taken to within one step of the Football League after successive promotions.
