Gary Setchell appointed general manager
Thursday 30th July
The club have announced that Gary Setchell will take on the role of full-time general manager being responsible
for the day-to-day running of the club.
"It's a massive project and one which I cannot wait to get my teeth into."
Setchell told the club website.
"It will be a big challenge and I already have several things which I feel need addressing.
I will be going out and about to speak with sponsors, supporters, infact anyone who has an interest in the club to see the best
ways we can to take the club forward.
We have the makings of a good team this season and I will be doing all I can to get the gates back up to the 700 - 800 mark where,
they were a few seasons ago. I will also be over seeing the development of the under 18's team with a view to in say 1 - 2 years
team forming the club's own Academy which, for me and Buster is a very exciting project as well as co-coordinating functions at The Walks."

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."
Back raids former club for Reserves
Friday 19th June
Ciaran Beales returns to The Walks as one of three players signed up by new Reserve team manager Rob Back.
The 21 year old former Norwich City Academy player made 32 appearances for Dersingham Rovers last season and will be remembered by
Lynn fans having played in the Reserves before and making his first
team debut in March 2012.
In March 2013 the former KES pupil had a taste of European football as a member of the Welsh national small-sided football squad
in Greece in the EMF MiniEuro Championships.
Matt Bussens and Simon Bird are also recruited from Back's former club.
