King's Lynn boss Keith Webb confirmed before last night's game former Norwich City striker Alex Notman had left the club.
The 27-year-old ended his second spell at The Walks after becoming frustrated at the recent lack of first-team opportunities. Notman had made only six starts since the New Year following his return to the club in September's goalless draw against Merthyr.
“He wasn't enjoying his football and it was in his best interests to leave,” said Webb. “I think he'd had enough of trekking all over the country and not starting games. Alex had come to me and said he wasn't happy but I asked him to give it a little bit more time.
“Being left on the bench Saturday was probably the straw that broke the camel's back. From my point of view we've got plenty of forwards so that is one area where we are covered.”
Notman made 28 appearances in his second spell at The Walks after an aborted comeback during Lynn's 2004 Eastern Division-winning season from the ankle injury that forced him to quit the professional game.
The last of his four goals came from the penalty spot in December's 3-1 league defeat at Clevedon.
