Culverhouse is currently the no2 at Dagenham.

Worthington is helping out at Fakenham behind the scenes.

It's more likely Worthington than Culverhouse

Helping out? Hopefully not advising of player eligibility  :laughcry:

"King’s Lynn Town football club are pleased to announce Ian Culverhouse as the club’s new, full time, first team manager. Ian made almost 300 appearances for Norwich City over a nine year career and almost 100 appearances for Swindon Town.

More recently Ian has been assistant manager at Colchester United, Norwich City and Aston Villa and this season has been carrying out the same roll at Dagenham and Redbridge.

Ian will be introduced to the press tomorrow at The Walks and will take charge of the team for the first time on Saturday when we travel to Hitchin Town. "

If not makes a mockery of the press conference if announced on the official site

This is the same sort of signing as Julian J which effectively "bust" the club last time. The club is where they are and have been , a level that is sustainable and has good moments and bad ..but promotion to and relegation from the League above always possible..The likes of R&D , Histon etc have tried this as well as many other clubs , the evidence is it does not work...

The most likely scenario is a quick burst up the Leagues  with former Norwich , Colchester and maybe even Villa players , and then financial difficulties and meltdown. We all know this , THEREFORE WE JUST HAVE TO WONDER WHY DOES SOME SILLY MAN WITH MONEY DO SUCH A SILLY DEAL?.

Realist, appreciate where you are coming from but a couple of massive differences between Culverhouse and the Julian J scenario.  Firstly JJ was a show pony who appeared to be at Lynn for the money and added very little off the field (OK not much on it in truth).  Culverhouse is here as manager with a wealth of not only playing but also coaching experience to his name and probably a fairly decent contact list and hopefully a route back into NCFC youth set ups. 

If the plan is to bring in the majority of the squad from elsewhere a la Chin then I would agree with your meltdown scenario but if there are serious designs to grow the club and get the most out of local talent surely one of the better ways to achieve that is to get someone with the sort of CV that Culverhouse has.  To me this looks like to be a great opportunity for local talent to make the best of themselves under a proper coach.

My only real concern is the full time bit as you have to wonder how he will fill his days, hopefully Mr Cleave will now find a better way of working with the existing junior and youth structures within the town and West Norfolk rather than going down the Chapmanesque solo route and the club will miss another opportunity.

hmm, expect all revenue streams to increase next season.  obviously money no object. so should have given setch enough for the elusive striker.  might have been cheaper in the long run.

This appointment smacks of a Done Deal.  :dontknow:

I hope that Ian Culverhouse does not bring his "new broom" with him but has it "sent on" for the start of the 2017-18 season.

IMO there are only a 3-4 positions that need bolstering. However, if Setch gets another club locally how many players will "up-sticks" and join him?

Thursday is training night and that could be very interesting to be a fly-on-the-wall!  :scarf: :scarf: :comeon: :comeon: :comeon: :scarf: :scarf:

WELL DONE SETCH! SORRY TO SEE YOU GO!So the ambition to be a football league side is still there. When I worked in Lincolnshire I followed Boston United on their rise from Southern League to Football League. A lot of blood, sweat and tears and a hell of a lot of money and now they are back where it all started! and so it will be with Lynn.( we have been part way there with the Chinn era)
We are a Step 3 team! With the occasional good runs in the FA cup and FA trophy. A local team built upon nurturing and developing ( not bullying!!) local players, which Setch has established. All that has been missing are the goals and that was not for trying. Sands hadn't taken on responsibility for keeping fit, Metts disappearing to Spalding after falling out with someone!! No manager can be blamed for injuries suffered I.e. Connor Marshall, Matt Castellan, Ryan Hawkins.
Why is a new manager needed?
