Former King’s Lynn Town player Simon Clark will take over from Ian Culverhouse at The Walks next season.

Clark was officially presented at a media conference on Wednesday at The Walks, with another ex-Linnet Sam Gaughran brought in as part of his coaching team.

Culverhouse departed after Lynn’s failed Southern League Premier Division play-off push, which ended in a heart-breaking 2-1 home defeat to Slough Town earlier this month in front of 2,842 at The Walks.

Town will be one of the favourites for promotion from the newly-created Southern League Central Division this coming season, with owner Stephen Cleeve’s long term aim to bring league football to West Norfolk.

The 51-year-old Clark played one season for the previous King’s Lynn club in 2005/06 under Tommy Taylor, after spells in the league at Peterborough and Lincoln City. Clark also has coaching experience with the Imps, Stamford and Worksop and more recently was working at Notts County and prior to that Charlton.
