FOOTBALL: We still await concrete news on what league we will be playing in next season but the football department at King’s Lynn Town have been continuing to look ahead, writes Mark Hearle.

Alex Street, Ryan Hawkins and Michael Gash have all committed themselves to another season at The Walks. 

It’s fair to say that ‘Hawks’ didn’t see anywhere near the amount of action he would have liked last season and we probably didn’t see the best of him when he did. 

Ryan is still a young man and has much to offer the football club and he will be hoping that a new season will see some more starts so he can show everyone the undoubted talent he has at his disposal. 

When I was looking back for ‘Peds’ Lynn history it seems quite amazing that he has been with the club almost 10 seasons. 

In the early part of his career at The Walks, Alex saw a few loan moves away as he continued to find his feet at the club’s level but has been a regular now for the past few seasons between the posts. 

He is another who has served the club well over the years and will be chomping at the bit to have a go in the elite level of non-League football, if he is given the chance to do so. 

The news that Michael was returning for another season probably got the most appreciation from the supporters from what I have seen. 

The big man has become something of a cult hero to Lynn fans in recent seasons with his all-action displays, goals and battles with some giant defenders – especially last season with some classic duels with some real man mountains of opposition. 

Whatever happens in his further Linnets career. ‘Gashy’ will always be remembered with great affection for his winning goal in last season’s ‘super play off’ final at Warrington. 

It was a game that will always live in everyone’s memory who was there on that special day.
