KIng's Lynn Town Football club are pleased to announce the signing of defender Alex Brown from Buxton football club for an undisclosed fee.
The 21 year old England ' C ' international began his career in the junior ranks at Sheffield United before spells at Hallam and Sheffield FC . He then joined Buxton where he has been a regular in the Northern Premier League side for the past two seasons. Alex made his England ' C ' debut in 2018 and was also a member of the England representative squad that played two fixtures on the Falkland Islands in 2019.
Alex has agreed a two year deal at The Walks and would be available to play for the Linnets if the present season were to recommence at any point.
Speaking to kltown.co.uk after the announcement Alex Said ' I have been watching events from afar for a few months now and it looks to be exciting times for the football club. I know Ross Barrows and he tell's me that it's a great group of players to be amongst. I played for Buxton in the two FA Trophy tie's against King's Lynn a couple of seasons back and was very impressed with the set up and stadium . I began as a winger but converted to full back at 15 years of age so I like to get forward as well as defend like most modern full backs do nowadays' .Speaking on his experience with England ' C ' Brown continued ' It was a memorable experience playing in surroundings that you don't see every day and being so far away from home. I spoke with some of the locals there who told me if you order a parcel there you have to wait 8 weeks for it to arrive which seemed unreal!. I cannot wait to get started at the football club and to test myself at an excellent level of football'
Chairman Stephen Cleeve added ' Alex is a player that the manager has been looking at for a long time and when it became clear that their could be an opportunity to agree something now and sign Alex for two seasons it seemed a prudent step to take. There were lots of National League clubs looking at Alex and sometimes even though it is not ideal timing from anyone's perspective at the moment we think with the benefit of hindsight this will be seen as the right action in time'.
