King’s Lynn Town chairman Stephen Cleeve has moved to quell rumours that manager Ian Culverhouse is leaving for League Two side Cambridge United.
The former Norwich City defender has led the Linnets on a promotion push in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division during his first full season at The Walks. That has led to speculation that the former Aston Villa and Canaries assistant manager could be heading back to the Football League, regardless of whether Lynn can secure promotion to step two of the non-league pyramid.
Joe Dunne has been caretaker manager of Cambridge since Shaun Derry left the U’s in February and Dunne was on the coaching staff at Colchester when Culverhouse was assistant to Paul Lambert, with online rumours suggesting a reunion could be on the cards this summer.
Linnets chairman Cleeve said: “This is the one and only time that I will ever comment on speculation but I want our club to focus on the job in hand over the next few weeks and not the negativity that some thrive on.
“There is no truth whatsoever in the rumours that Ian Culverhouse is going to Cambridge United.”
