Former King's Lynn boss Carl Heggs admits the challenge of leading Lynn back into the upper echelons of non league football could convince him to stay in Norfolk.

“I don't see any club out there at the minute without a manager that is as big as King's Lynn,” said Heggs. “Of course it's unfortunate they went down two leagues or potentially could go down two leagues. But I'm 39. I'm a young manager. You could almost say a YTS manager as it used to be in my playing days. I'm not 54, 55, been doing it for 20 years and I'm running out of a bit of enthusiasm.

“I'm absolutely brimming with enthusiasm. If the board is right and they had the same ambitions that I've got we could be in the Conference North and I could still be only 42, 43 and at a big club like King's Lynn. It's a big ask but if you don't set yourself goals and dreams what is the point.”
