New loan signing for King’s Lynn

Gary Setchell has received a double boost ahead of the trip to Stratford.

The Linnets boss has signed Sam Warburton from Nuneaton on a three-month loan deal. The 19-year-old left-sided player, released by Northampton in December, was on loan at Rugby Town until recently.

More good news for the Linnets is that Lee Smith is back from his travels and will resume training, although he will need a mini pre-season before resuming first team action.

Town can leapfrog their opponents if they can end a spell of frustration with a welcome away victory today. The Linnets haven't won since September 24, a run of six matches in a row, and saw assistant manager and player Gary Mills depart to take over as manager of Northern Premier League side Corby in midweek.

Setchell's side needed a late Leon Mettam equaliser to salvage a 2-2 draw at home to Hayes & Yeading last week but travel to Stratford knowing victory would move them above their opponents.
