Simon Lappin insists he and Grant Holt have not joined King’s Lynn Town as an easy option in the twilight years of their football careers.

The Norwich City favourites have turned heads throughout non-league after joining the Linnets for the rest of the season and could make their Bostik Southern Premier Division debuts against Hitchin Town at The Walks tonight (7.45pm kick-off).

“I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the country and I’ve stayed in Cardiff, Sheffield and back in Scotland, and I’ve just never felt as settled as I do in Norfolk – and my wife feels the same,” the 34-year-old Scot said.

“We’ve got young children and we want to bring them up here, and while I’m here there’s an opportunity to play football so it ties in hand in hand with that.
