Gary Setchell has wasted little time in building the foundations of his King's Lynn Town side for next season.

The Linnets boss tied down goalkeeper Alex Street for another season - and soon added three more players to the pot.

Local youngsters Ryan and Liam Fryatt agreed deals for the 2016-17 campaign, as did club captain Sam Gaughran.

'It's good to have the spine of last season's side all in place already,' said Setchell, whose side finished ninth in the Southern League Premier Division.

'Keeping the younger players is also a big bonus for the football club.

However, midfielder Liam Hurst won't be returning to The Walks after being released by the Linnets.
