He helped Premier League club Everton nurture talents including Wayne Rooney and Ross Barkley - but now Ray Hall wants to help King's Lynn Town to become a non-league powerhouse.

Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve has persuaded Hall, who worked as academy manager for the Toffees between 1990 and 2011, to join the club as a football consultant.

The 66-year-old is now looking forward to lending his skills and knowledge to Lynn’s hopes of mounting a promotion push in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division.

“I came down and spoke to Gary Setchell and said if I could help in anyway then I’m just a Skype call away or on the end of a phone call,” Hall said.

“As far as development of football goes, which is my bag really, making King’s Lynn Football Club the hub of football in west Norfolk is what we want to do.

“The club has a terrific stadium which belies the club’s situation and if we can continue to improve the club’s facilities then there’s no reason why the club cannot become a force in non-league.”
