King's Lynn Town have unveiled their first signing of the off-season.

Former Ipswich Town youngster Ross Crane will join the Linnets from Leiston.

The 21-year-old winger was at Ipswich in his earlier days, and has since played for Needham Market and Leiston at Step 3.

“I’m delighted to have Ross on board," said Linnets boss Adam Lakeland. "From the first time I saw him play I felt he would be a great addition for us.

"He has an excellent work ethic and turn of pace to go with his technical abilities, which make him a player who can both score and create goals. He makes good runs off the ball and travels well with the ball, something that we didn’t have too much of in our ranks last season.

"He is also at an age where he can continue to develop in a full-time environment, whilst having plenty of senior footballing experience under his belt. I look forward to working with him and I’m sure he will be an excellent addition to our group.”

Crane was a regular for Leiston last season, missing just one game at Kettering Town in the league in April. He scored 13 times goals in 47 appearances. Having played for Sudbury and Bury Town, he joined hometown club Ipswich in May 2020, signing a two-year contract.

He joined Needham Market in August 2022, following his release from Ipswich.

“I'm really excited for the season,” Crane told the club’s official channels. “I spoke to the gaffer and I was really pleased with what I heard so I am looking forward to it

“I've been looking to get back into full-time football again.”
