King’s Lynn Town chairman Stephen Cleeve confirmed following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Chesham United that Grant Holt has departed the club to join Barrow as player/coach.

Cleeve said “We had a phone call from Barrow on Monday to say that Grant’s agent had done a deal with Barrow as a player coach, I’m upset to see Grant leave the football club, I’m shocked more than anything at the moment as I’m yet to speak to him.

“I wanted Grant to stay at the football club, I’m deeply upset, It’s a blow to the town and the football club.”


Barrow, meanwhile, have reportedly denied that a deal has been done, despite admitting their interest in bringing the former Norwich City goalgetter back to the club he represented from 2001 to 2003.
