Ian Culverhouse has made a sensational return to King's Lynn Town.
The former Norwich City defender and one-time assistant manager left The Walks under a cloud at the end of last season, having guided the Linnets to the Southern League play-off final.
Lynn chairman Stephen Cleeve admitted the relationship between him and Culverhouse had broken down, but in a remarkable about-turn, Culverhouse – who quit his job as Grantham manager in the middle of last month – is to return.
Veteran goalkeeper Paul Bastock will be his assistant.
A statement on the club's official website on Thursday night said: 'The club wishes to announce the appointment of Ian Culverhouse as the club's new first team manager.
