Marriott returns to former club as Linnets visit Royston

January 10, 2019

King’s Lynn Town are back on the road at the weekend with a visit to one of striker Adam Marriott’s former clubs Royston Town.
Town’s in-form hit man plundered 30 goals for the Crows last season which earned a summer move to Boston United. 
However limited game time saw the Linnets stepping in for the services of Marriott and since his move the goals have returned for the popular front man. 
Marriott said: "I’m looking forward to going back there.
"I hope I get a decent reception as I scored a few for them in my time there. They have used some younger players there this season but have still picked up some good points along the way.
"Really it’s just another game and I want to continue scoring goals for the club."
After the midweek games, the Linnets dropped a place to fourth in the table following Needham Market’s 2-1 victory at Tamworth.
The Linnets collected a hard-earned point last weekend in the 1-1 Walks draw with Leiston.
A clear week has allowed for some good training sessions which manager Ian Culverhouse has enjoyed. 
"It has been good to get everyone out on the pitch without the pressure of a match day," admitted Culverhouse. 
"We looked a bit tired last weekend after the four games in a short space of time but the slower week has helped along with the training and a chance to have a chat about things in general. 
"We are in a good place at the moment and have worked ever so hard to get to this point. We now have to maintain our levels of fitness and our level of play between now and the end of April.
"The league is something still of an unknown quantity this season with the introduction of so many new teams into it. 
"I think that’s why surprise results are still being seen and will continue to be seen between now and the end of the campaign. 
"It’s a very different scenario this year in how the table is playing out with a real handful of teams in and around the business positions. 
"Positions will chop and change for sure over the coming months and everyone at the club is ready for the challenges that lay ahead over the coming weeks."
Royston have had a mixed season to date with plenty of goals being both scored and conceded. 
Heavy home defeats to Biggleswade (6-4) and Leiston (5-2) have been punctuated by commanding wins, including a 5-0 success over St Neots  - a team they lost to by a single-goal margin last Saturday.
Defender Aaron Jones is expected to be unavailable following expected surgery this week on his knee problem.
Apart from a few knocks and bruises Culverhouse should have a full squad to chose from as he club continues to work on potential new signings.
The reserves have home league action with Cornard United on Saturday (the Walks, 3pm).
