Grant Holt – now you see him… Picture: PAUL TIBBS.

Grant Holt didn’t hang around long then did he?

Four appearances, or 192 minutes if you want to be precise, was all he fancied before ending his time at King’s Lynn Town.

Regardless of the rights or wrongs of Barrow’s approach, or Holt’s decision to leave almost as soon as he arrived, one thing is for sure.

The whole situation has made the Linnets look more than a little bit silly.

Yet when you forget the stature of who has departed, does the striker’s exit really matter? He’s a Norwich City legend but he was unlikely to ever be a Lynn one.

His biggest impact may have been putting bums on seats and raising the club’s profile in a way that no other player in the squad could. But in reality that’s all he is – a player.

They come and go all the time, especially in non-League football where the turnaround at times is astronomical.

Holt will, and should, be soon forgotten. It’s not all about him and it never should have been in the first place.

It’s about Lynn trying to get promoted. And on Tuesday night they continued to make a good fist of it by winning 2-1 at Banbury to move back to the top of the Southern Premier League table. Grant who?
