Departed King's Lynn Town ace Dan Jacob is confident his former team-mates can gatecrash the play-offs.

Lynn's top goalscorer this season played his final game for the club during Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat at Grantham Town after deciding to relocate to Dubai. But he is certain the reformed Walks outfit have all the tools they need to bounce back and propser without him at Step Three of the non-league ladder.

Jacob said: 'I'd like to thank all the fans for my time at the club, they made me very welcome.

'I had a fantastic time during my six months here. It's a shame I'm having to leave because you've (the fans) been great and I've really enjoyed it. The gaffer (Gary Setchell) has been wonderful, and the chairman (Buster Chapman). I wish the lads all the best. I know with the players, and the squad they've got – and the gaffer knows exactly what he's doing – there's no reason they can't make the play-offs and go onto bigger and better things.'

Jacob bagged nine goals this term and netted 14 goals in just 27 appearances during his relatively brief spell at The Walks.
