Lynn welcome back Sam Gaughran
Saturday 4 July
Lynn have signed central defender Sam Gaughran who, earlier this week, asked to be released from his contract with Lowestoft Town citing increased work
demands and travel commitments as the reason he could not see out his contract which
had a year to run.
He is employed as a Youth Team coach with Peterborough United.
The 25 year old (b. Hunstanton 29 Jan 1990) was part of Keith Rudd's, King's Lynn Football in the Community Scheme.
He joined Norwich's Academy in June 2000 as a schoolboy but was released at the age of 14.
Returning to Lynn he progressed through the youth and Reserve teams to make his first team debut in September 2006 against Tring in the FA Cup
and went on to make 11 appearances (5 starts) scoring once.
He moved on to Peterborough on a two year scholarship in June 2007 and had loan spells with Norwegian side Kvinesdal IL and Boston United, Grays Athletic, Tamworth and Halesowen.
Whilst at London Road he captained both the Youth and reserves teams and made his professional debut against Tottenham Hotspur.
He was released by Peterborough at the end of the 2009-10 season and joined Lowestoft Town.
Lynn tried to sign Gaughran in March 2011 but had their cash bid rejected.
He then agreed to return to The Walks in May 2012 but changed his mind and opted to stay with the Trawlerboys.
He made a total of 93 appearances for Lowestoft and was the Supporters 2013-14 Player of the Year.
The Lowestoft website reports "Lowestoft Town have agreed an undisclosed fee with Kings Lynn Town for Sam Gaughran."
