Just 50 miles divides Norfolk’s top two clubs – Norwich City and King’s Lynn Town – and while the footballing gulf is still pretty wide it’s a relationship that remains close.

Simeon Jackson is the latest former City player to pull on the Linnets colours, arriving on the same day as Alfie Payne, a former City youth team player, returned to the club for a second spell.
