West to stay at Lynn

King's Lynn chairman Ken Bobbins insisted Dean West's surprise Boston United u-turn was a clear signal of intent from the ambitious Southern League outfit.

King's Lynn chairman Ken Bobbins insisted Dean West's surprise Boston United u-turn was a clear signal of intent from the ambitious Southern League outfit.

West will stay at The Walks after snubbing the chance to link up with former Linnets' chief Tommy Taylor at the Blue Square club in a coaching capacity.

Bobbins also scotched suggestions Michael Frew or Matt O'Halloran were poised to re-join Taylor while midfielder Mark Camm will sign a contract prior to tonight's Norwich friendly.

“I hope this sends out a strong message,” he said. “Boston are not in a position to make any further approaches in the next 28 days. I haven't heard anything from Michael or Matt to the contrary either.

“Dean phoned me up and said he'd had a re-think. He talked to both myself and Keith. I told him I didn't want him to turn around in a fortnight and say he was going again.

“I also warned him he could expect a certain reaction from people and he understood there might be some stick. He is prepared to win anyone over by his performances on the pitch.”

Bobbins revealed Camm had spurned the Pilgrims' advances.

“They had been in touch with him and I was fully aware of that,” he said. “Mark said he'd spoken to his wife and that he saw his future at King's Lynn. He knows the manager here had a two year contract and he is prepared to stay for that period.

“Both Keith and I were in total agreement. Cammy will always give you 110% - even on a bad day he will never hide.”
