King's Lynn Town have added to their central defensive stocks with their second signing for next season.

Tom Wilson - who left FC Halifax Town at the beginning of May - has signed on the dotted line as preparations continue for the National League North resumption. Wilson joined FC Halifax last summer from Belper Town.

"I’m really pleased that Tom has joined us," Lynn boss Adam Lakeland told the club's official channels.

"Having enjoyed a consistent run of results since January playing with three centre backs, it’s clear that’s the system that suits our personnel best, but we needed to ensure we go into the new season with four quality central defenders."

Wilson, 23, joins Josh Coulson and Kyle Callan-McFadden as centre-back options.

"Tom fits the profile of centre backs I like, committed, aggressive, brave, vocal and competent with the ball," said Lakeland.

"He’s at an age where I feel we can continue to develop his game and he has experience of being a captain in the past, of captaining a team which achieved promotion and last season played some games in the league above.

"I look forward to working with him and it’s another player who makes the group stronger than last season."

Wilson added: "I'm delighted to be joining King's Lynn. After meeting the manager and the (assistant) Sam (Walker), listening to what they’re building and the style of play, it felt like it suited me and was the best opportunity for me to take to go and play football to the best of my ability.

"I’m excited to meet the lads and to knuckle down through pre-season, to prepare for what I’m sure will be a great year for this club.

"To be given the chance by the manager to stay in full-time football is an excellent opportunity for me and one I’m grateful for.

"I’m looking forward to getting out on The Walks, and meeting all the fans."

Lakeland's first signing of the summer was Ross Crane, from Leiston, while Tom Clifford left by mutual consent and midfielder Cameron Hargreaves turned down the offer of a new contract.
