Tom Ward believes the arrival of Grant Holt and Simon Lappin will be invaluable if the club are to fulfil their aim of promotion this season.

The King’s Lynn Town defender was nothing but impressed with the input of the former Norwich City pair during Tuesday night’s 2-0 victory over Hitchin Town at The Walks.

Ward said: “When you get big names like that come into the changing room you don’t necessarily know what it’s going to be like, but they were both very approachable.

“We’ve seen a bit of Lapps in training and he is very keen to share his advice, which for someone coming down from the level he’s played at, is brilliant for me.

“Even at 27 I’ve still got things to learn, so having experienced players like them will only benefit everyone.

“There are senior lads at the club who can learn from them and also the younger players and the young lads in the reserves.

“If they don’t take the opportunity to learn from them they would be daft as they won’t get a better chance than that in football.”
