Familiar name comes to Walks
King's Lynn manager Tommy Taylor has brought a familiar name to the Walks in the shape of Peterborough midfielder Adam Fry. The 21-year-old reserve, son of Posh director of football Barry Fry, has agreed to join the Linnets on a month's loan in order to get some first-team experience.
King's Lynn manager Tommy Taylor has brought a familiar name to the Walks in the shape of Peterborough midfielder Adam Fry.
The 21-year-old reserve, son of Posh director of football Barry Fry, has agreed to join the Linnets on a month's loan in order to get some first-team experience.
Lynn are short in midfield following the recent loss of Shaun Carey with a double fracture of the right leg and it is hoped that Fry - who has made four first team appearances for Peterborough, but hasn't played at league level since the tail end of the 2004-5 campaign - will plug the gap
“Basically I need more legs in the middle of the park,” said Taylor. “I received some good reports about Adam and I am delighted to have his services for a month. He is keen for some first team football and is really looking forward to coming here and showing us what he can do.

“We'll wait and see what happens after the month but if he is enjoying himself, and we like what we see, then he might stay here a little bit longer. For the time being I am just pleased to have got him in - and in ideal world I could do with another player in there as well.”
Fry is expected to make his debut in tomorrow's FA Cup second qualifying round tie against Midland outfit Causeway United at the Walks.

Taylor has also made a seven-day approach for one-time Norwich Academy player Greg Crane, who is keen to join the club after a brief spell with Conference side Cambridge United. The big centre half, who has previously trained with the Linnets, won't be available until well into October as he is currently serving a three-match suspension.
