King’s Lynn sign Dereham’s Beaumont

Danny Beaumont is confident he can plunder the goals to fire King's Lynn to UCL title glory after completing his transfer move from Dereham.

The Linnets sealed a two-year deal for the 21-year-old on Monday night at The Walks after agreeing a fee with the Ridgeons Premier Division runners-up prior to the weekend.

Beaumont plundered 29 goals in 49 appearances last season - and was on target in the Magpies' emphatic 4-1 Norfolk Senior Cup final win against Lynn at Carrow Road.

'I'm delighted to be here. I'm really looking forward to it,' said Beaumont. 'I look around the stadium and it has developed so much since I was here before playing against Lynn Reserves. It has changed so and it really looks like it s geared for everything to go onwards and upwards. If I'm honest, it took a bit to convince me because I had been at Dereham for quite a while but comparing the positives to the negatives, the postives far outweigh those.

'We played them twice last season and I know they have a lot of quality in the side and they have managed to keep those players so it is looking good for next year. It'll be great to link up with a player like Jack Defty. His record speaks for itself and I know it will be difficult to get in the side.'

Beaumont is promising Town fans he can be just as effective outside the penalty box.

'I love to get into the channels and run defenders,' he said. 'I've got good movement in and outside the box and as much as I enjoy scoring goals I get a lot of pleasure from creating chances. The pre-season isn't far away now so I can't wait to start.'

'Danny is a natural goal scorer and has been up around the top of the Ridgeons scoring charts for the past two seasons,' said joint boss Kevin Boon. 'He has a big future ahead and is really keen to play for us, he will also be the perfect partner for either Jack (Defty) or Robbie (Harris) up front so what more can we ask for.'
