Ian Culverhouse says he won’t lose any sleep over talent scouts casting their avaricious eyes over his top players at King’s Lynn Town.

The Linnets have gelled quickly, starting their Southern Premier League campaign with four wins out of five.

Culverhouse has added some new faces to the squad he inherited after taking over last season, and it is his full backs – Cameron Norman and Frazer Blake-Tracy, who have really caught the eye.

Norman was released by Norwich City last summer and became Culverhouses’s most recent recruit when he signed just days before the start of the season.

The 21-year-old has been in outstanding form – but Culverhouse is not concerned at the prospect of potential suitors, preferring to regard it as a sign of success.

“That is what we want,” said former Norwich City full-back and assistant manager Culverhouse. “We’d love scouts to come and fill the place, that is what it is all about. We give them the platform and they go and produce.

“But I have two outstanding full-backs who love to get forward and get on the ball. It is all about delivering balls in and they have done that superbly – they get further forward more than I ever did, that’s for sure!

“They are doing fantastic and again they will get better and better and it bodes well for this football club, it really does.”

Culverhouse is having to deal with high expectations at The Walks.

“The expectation level has gone through the roof,” he said. “The reality is we are a whole new team and it will take time.

“You have got to realise where we finished last year – we finished 13th in the league last year and now all of a sudden we are expected to win the league and walk it. But it is not going to happen overnight, it really isn’t.

“We have to be there or thereabouts around about Christmas time and then, as in any league, come January, February that is when the season starts.

“As long as we are in the position and can really give it some force after Christmas then we will do.”
