King's Lynn officials today revealed the winning entry in their shirt design competition for the 2010/11 season.

Teenager Kieran Spinks, of Walpole Highway, submitted the winning entry from more than 50 which were picked by a judging panel headed by club chairman Keith Chapman.

'It was clear to see that lots of local children had really cherished this challenge and put lots of effort into coming up with some great designs,' said Chapman. 'It was a tough choice and in an ideal world they could have all been winners but in the end we had to select just one and we are sure that the fans will really love Kieran's design.'

Kieran had watched the Linnets for the past five seasons before the former club folded before Christmas over an unpaid tax bill and spiralling debts.

'I have been coming to The Walks with my granddad since I was ten years old and was really sad when it closed down,' he said. 'I am now really excited again and can't wait for the club to re-open, my granddad is going to be so proud of me winning this and I can't wait to see the players and the fans wearing the shirt.'

Kieran's winning design will now go to the club's kit manufacturers who will add a few final touches before producing a sample for fans to see later this month. Once a main team sponsor has been secured, the shirt will go into full production ready for the new season which commences on July 13.
