King’s Lynn Town sign United Counties Premier Division goal machine Turner

King's Lynn Town's title hopes were boosted tonight after goal machine Jason Turner joined the Linnets from Wellingborough Town 2004.

Turner, 30, who bagged a hat-trick at The Walks in December during a 4-3 defeat for his side, is the joint-top goalscorer in the United Counties Premier Division with 23 goals.

Linnets boss Gary Setchell has beaten a host of clubs to capture the red-hot striker's signature as he continues his drive to land a coveted UCL title.

The 30-year-old put pen to paper on a deal at Lynn's ground this evening. He will be in Lynn's squad for their trip to Irchester United, weather permitting.
