King's Lynn Town have clinched the double signing of former Linnets Jack Defty and Brady Stone.

Defty has agreed to return to his hometown club after a season with Blue Square North play-off chasing Corby.

The powerful striker scored 90 goals in 308 appearances during his first spell at The Walks and will spearhead the new club's bid for promotion from the United Counties League.

Highly-rated defender Stone has left Ely City after brief stints at both Cambridge United and Cambridge City.
