The Linnets are planning to pay tribute to a club legend before their match today (14th Dec). 

They announced yesterday that Mick Wright passed away at the age of 77.

He was affectionately known to a lot of people as Mr King's Lynn 


Mark first played for the team in 1961 at just 19 and overall played a whopping 1152 games for them. 

He played football until he was 39-years-old when he left the Club having played 1,152 and never getting cautioned (yellow carded).

He was also placed in the King's Lynn Town FC's inaugural Hall of Fame.

Back in 2016, he won the KLFM lifetime achievement award for his dedication.

In a statement the club said:

"The club, have today, been deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mick Wright.

Mick’s loyalty to the club will, almost certainly, never be repeated.

Mick was also an inductee to the club’s ‘ Hall of Fame’ and , along with another Lynn legend Keith Rudd , re opened the ‘ Blue & Gold Sports Bar ‘ at the beginning of the current season and was affectionately known to many as ‘ Mr King’s Lynn’. 

The club will be remembering Mick on Saturday afternoon ahead of our FA Trophy fixture with Dover Athletic at The Walks.

We also wish to send our deepest sympathies to all of Mick’s family and friends at this particularly sad time."
