King’s Lynn Town manager Ian Culverhouse has compared his side’s promotion to the National League to that of a fairytale.

The Linnets came from behind to defeat Warrington 3-2 after extra-time in the Super Play-Off at Cantilever Park to secure their place back in the National League for the first time since 2008.

Having come so close last campaign, only to miss out in heart-breaking fashion against Slough in the final, the former Norwich City assistant boss, who returned to the club mid-season, has successfully completed the job he was brought in to do.

Culverhouse said: “This is a massive achievement for the football club, to do what we’ve done and to come from where we were.

“It started “Robbie (Back) and Neil (Fryatt) taking the job on, getting the players in and back focused on the job and for the players to then go on the run we have is incredible.”
