Midfielder Chris Henderson can’t wait to get started at King’s Lynn Town as he looks to help the club achieve their goal of promotion.
The 28-year-old attacking midfielder admits it was a hard decision to leave Leiston, but being wanted by Lynn was too good an opportunity to miss.
Henderson, who almost joined Lynn under previous boss Ian Culverhouse, is set to make his debut for the club tonight when the Linnets host Peterborough Sports in the Southern League Cup at The Walks.
“I’m happy that I’m finally here,” admitted Henderson after completing his move on Saturday.
“I know the club is fourth bottom but it doesn’t really reflect the quality we’ve got in that dressing room.
“You can tell just by walking around the place what a big club this is. I’m looking forward to playing a small part in getting it back where it belongs.
“I’ve always been at clubs where we are challenging for titles, cups and in and around the play-offs and that’s the target coming here.
The Linnets are expected to field a mixed team against their Evo-Stik League South Division One Central visitors who have made a great start to the new season.
Prices for the League Cup fixture have been reduced to: £8 adults, £6 concessions, £4 students (16 and 17) and children under 16 free.
