Has joined Lynn, played for Tamworth last season. Seems Heggs (new manager) has not taken any, or very few players from last season.  :)

Really? He must be on speed!  ;) I've been reading the Lynn forum, some are not very happy about the way Heggs has gone about his biz. They are saying some player called, 'big Jack' has left and is going to join us. Anyone got any news or at least a rumour just to keep us happy.  ;D

Lonegunman,the player they're talking about is Jack Defty.He's a local lad to Lynn.He plays up front,not prolific as a goal scorer,but a good target man who can hold the ball up and bring others in.He's always looked decent when I've seen Lynn,but the only rumours about him coming here are coming from their forum.

Well I  don,t think the ' target man ' situ has worked over last 2 seasons .. (vis Froggatt) ..
  Think u just need 2 strikers to go for it ..dont even have to be that big .
    Maybe u only need the big boys for set pieces .. so would like to see plenty of height in midfield and defence..

"Friday 5th June
Andy Johnson appointed assistant manager
The club are pleased to announce that Andy Johnson has been appointed as player assistant manager and that Michael Chinn has rejoined thre board of King's Lynn Football Club."

I think that is more telling for the reason behind the glut of new signings

The Eastern Daily Press have a video interview with Carl Heggs on their webb site which i have just watched. In my judgement this chap makes Steve Evans sound modest and rational.

Interesting that Sheldon apparently finished second top scorer in the Conf North last year and was supposedly wanted by Kidderminster.  Either going to Kiddie or staying at Tamworth should have been the more ambitious and geographically sensible move as opposed to joining Lynn which makes you wonder if money might be being flashed around.  It'll be interesting to see how he gets on though as he has only ever scored a decent amount of goals for Tamworth, although he is dropping another level.

I'm certainly more happy to see us bide our time and pick up good players without breaking the bank.

Jon Sotnick has got other things to keep him occupied nowadays:
