King's Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell hopes new signing Marc Goodfellow's experience can help aid his young starlets' progression.

The Linnets' boss was busy on Wednesday night snapping up the Gresley winger while tying down talented pair Ryan Fryatt and Dan Quigley on contracts until the end of the 2014/15 season.

And Setchell hopes Goodfellow, a former Stoke City and Bristol City player who won the Conference with Burton Albion in 2009, will pass on his higher-level knowledge as Lynn look to continue their climb up the non-league ladder.

Setchell said of the 32-year-old: 'He's a great player. He's been a good pro. He's carved out a career in non-league.

'And with (Dan) Jacob and (Steve) Spriggs leaving, with the two (Gary and Greg) Mills' and (Jake) Jones on loan, it was important we got a good wideman in – and that's exactly what he is.

'If we can get him the ball he's got great quality, scores good goals, his set pieces are very good.

'So he's a good addition for us and he brings us plenty of experience which is what we need as we've got a good crop of young players here too.'

Goodfellow, who is comfortable operating on either flank and arrives on a non-contract deal, top-scored for the Moatmen with 20 goals last term and notched during his side's 2-1 home loss to then Evo-Stik Division One South Lynn in February.

His new team-mates, defender Fryatt, 20, and 23-year-old midfielder Quigley, will now have to be bought by a club if they decide to leave in the next 18 months after becoming the first Lynn players to sign a contract for a couple of years.
