Lowestoft Town sign ex-King’s Lynn man Michael Frew

Lowestoft Town have signed former King's Lynn winger Michael Frew.

The 27-year-old joins the Ryman League Premier Division promotion challengers on an 18 month contract, having been released by Blue Square Conference North side Corby Town earlier this month.

Craig Fleming, part of the management team at Crown Meadow, said: 'He's somebody I played with at King's Lynn before I retired. He's a very good player, a good size, excellent delivery and he will add to our attacking threat.'

Frew was in attendance on Saturday as Lowestoft smashed four past Croydon Town at Crown Meadow – a performance that will have whet the winger's appetite.

Brought up through Peterborough United's youth system, Frew had spells at Nuneaton Borough and Hucknall Town, before signing for Lynn in 2006. Frew also appeared for Cambridge City and Histon before joining the Steelmen.

Lowestoft co-manager Ady Gallagher added: 'Michael is a high quality player and it was great to sign him, and a great addition to the squad. He knows some of the players from his King's Lynn days and can play in wide positions and also upfront.'

Frew is available to make his debut in a tough looking trip to promotion rivals Cray Wanderers on Tuesday night.
