King's Lynn Town have tonight completed the signing of highly-rated defender Jake Kerins from Bury Town.
Kerins, who's versatility has often seen him ply his trade at right-back or in the heart of the defence, was part of the Mildenhall Town FA Trophy team that knocked the Linnets out of the FA Trophy at The Walks back in 2017/18.
Director of football Robbie Back said: "We're delighted to get Jake on board at King's Lynn Town Football Club.
"He's another young, hungry player who will fit into the group well. He will add another dimension to the team and we are looking forward to working with him."
The Walks outfit lodged a seven-day approach for the former Shrewsbury trainee, who was part of the Sky Bet League One club’s academy for two seasons, earlier this week.
Regarded as a quick and strong attacking right-back, Kerins has made 19 appearances for Bury and scored two goals, after he made the switch to Ram Meadow from Mildenhall, for whom he made 47 appearances last term.
Kerins, 20, will provide useful cover for long-term injury Aaron Jones who has undergone surgery on a troublesome knee problem.
The youngster is expected to be in Lynn's squad for their Southern League Central trip to Royston Town on Saturday.
