Ian Culverhouse has suggested Simon Lappin could be the man to continue his good work at King’s Lynn Town this summer.
The Norwich City legend brought in former Canaries players Lappin and Grant Holt ahead of this season, although Holt moved up two levels to play for hometown club Barrow in the National League after just four games. Scottish midfielder Lappin has remained though and played an integral part in Lynn’s promotion push in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier, scoring three goals in 37 games in all competitions.
The 35-year-old also assists outgoing manager Culverhouse – who has surprisingly announced he is leaving this summer ahead of the play-offs – with coaching and could be considered as his successor.
“I asked Ian’s opinion and he did suggest Lappin but I don’t know if he’s interested or not,” Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve said. “We’re going to advertise the position and if Lappin’s interested he’ll no doubt let me know.”
