Sunday 22nd April Ian Culverhouse to depart.
After months of rumour and speculation it seems that manager Ian Culverhouse will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
In an interview published in the Non-League Paper Culverhouse confirms his intention to part company with the Linnets saying that he believes it is the right time to move on and although he has been able to introduce many positive changes at the club there have also been "a lot of things which have gone on behind the scenes this year that I have had to question."
The club, in a statement, expressed surprise at the publicaton of the article stating that although Culverhouse had submitted a written three month notice in February that he wished to terminate his contract at the end of this season, he had met with owner Stephen Cleeve and had agreed to further talks at the end of the playing season.
Culverhouse took over the Lynn hot seat on 22nd February 2017 and saw out last season with a record of 14 points from a possible 33 plus victory in the Norfolk Senior Cup.
Signings over the summer and the introduction of a different footballing style had seen Lynn occupy a top five league spot throughout the season and a possible second spot finish in the division and a chance of promotion.

Saturday 24th February Tiverton Town 1 King’s Lynn Town 0
Leon Mettam, having been on the field a matter of minutes, picked up a three match suspension when he was red carded for a two footed tackle on Ben Mammola at Ladysmead on Saturday as Lynn went down to a 87th minute goal from Tom Bath to give Tiverton hope in their quest for a play-off place.
Tivvy's on-loan Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Alexis Andre Jr was awarded the man of the match.
He had been the first 'keeper in serious action tipping over Simon Lappin's header. At the other end the Lynn defence failure to clear the ball gave Jordan Rogers a chance but his lob wet just wide.
Further chances came and went with Cameron Norman testing Andre and Bath trying his luck from long range for Tivvy.
The home side created the better of the early second half chances but just as it looked as through ten man Linnets would leave with a point Bath finished Jamie Short's cut back in style
