Former Football League defender Ian Culverhouse has made a dramatic return to South League Premier Division Central side King’s Lynn Town – just 5 months after leaving the club.
Lynn chairman Stephen Cleeve admitted the relationship between him and Culverhouse had broken down, but in a remarkable about-turn, Culverhouse – who quit his job as Grantham manager in the middle of last month – is to return.
Veteran goalkeeper Paul Bastock will be his assistant.
A statement on the club’s official website on Thursday night said: “The club wishes to announce the appointment of Ian Culverhouse as the club’s new first team manager.
“He will be assisted at The Walks by former Boston United goalkeeper and UK appearance record holder Paul Bastock.
“They will take charge of the team at Alvechurch on Saturday, replacing the joint management team of Neil Fryatt and Robbie Back who have taken up new positions within the club.
“A full statement will be released here in the morning.”
