King's Lynn Town bring in striker Dayle Southwell

January 21, 2020

King's Lynn Town have bolstered their striking options for the remainder of the National League North season with the signing of Dayle Southwell.
The former Boston United frontman arrives at The Walks on a two-and-a-half year deal after being released by FC Halifax.
Linnets director of football Robbie Back said: "Dayle's a really good signing for this football club. He's a proven goalscorer at this level and it has taken a lot of hard work from Ian (Culverhouse), Stephen Cleeve and myself to make it happen.
"We've been looking to bring in a striker in the last few weeks just to bolster the squad. 
"Dayle is only going to improve it even more and he'll also take some of the workload off Mazza (Adam Marriott) and Gashy (Michael Gash).
"We just needed a bit more strength in depth and I'm delighted that we've managed to get it over the line, especially after the weekend we've just had."
Lincoln-based Southwell, a former Grimsby Town player, has also featured for Wycombe Wanderers, Lincoln City and Guiseley.
Southwell said: "It feels brilliant to be here. I've just been in with the manager and having spoken to several people around the club it seems like exciting times ahead.
"I was made aware by my agent that King's Lynn were interested. I was very keen to speak to them and explore that avenue. It all happened so fast."
The 26-year-old featured against the Linnets twice while on loan at Boston United over the festive period.
"The way Lynn played was very encouraging and it looks like a great team to play in," said Southwell.
