FOOTBALL: King’s Lynn Town are at the pinnacle of non-League football this season but youngsters from the town also have a Premier chance to impress.
A trial involving 25 of the best u12 talent in the area was held in the baking heat last Friday as the Linnets ran the rule over the top talent to see who will represent the club for their first season in the Junior Premier League.
The league, considered the best junior league in the country , will see the youngsters competing against their opposites across the Eastern Counties.
As part of their reward for playing in Linnets’ colours, the selected players will be able to watch the first team in National League action at The Walks, as well as being featured in the matchday programme, which will chart their progress.
The Linnets u12 management team of Stuart Gallon, Harry Ward and Neil Walden thanked first-team captain Michael Clunan, who spoke to the group and offered advice on their football careers, and director of football Rob Back, who told the youngsters about the set-up at the club and what it means to be a part of it.
Gallon also thanked Lynn chairman Stephen Cleeve for his support over the past few weeks following the formation of the u12 Junior Premier League team.
