Linnets assistant confirms his departure from club

Departing King’s Lynn Town assistant Hugo Langton says he’s loved every minute of his time with the club.

Langton, who was assistant manager under Tommy Widdrington and then coach alongside new manager Hughes, announced his departure on the club’s media channels this morning.

“If I’m honest, the last 18 months, I’ve loved every minute of it.

“It’s been fantastic and whilst we’ve all worked extremely hard, it’s been so much fun. I’ve laughed so much, but we’ve worked so hard as well.

“Our changing room at Lynn has been unbelievable. To a man I can’t speak highly enough of the changing room.

“It actually runs itself. It’s a room full of absolutely top blokes and I’m just sad that we couldn’t get the job done, we just couldn’t get ourselves over the line, but I don’t think we should take away the fact that we have had a brilliant season.

“Let’s remember as well when we came to the club and I came to the club with Tommy 18 months ago, the club, we felt, didn’t have much of an identity in terms of what the team wanted to look like on the pitch.

“And I like to think that we’ve certainly left an identity behind. We’ve had a great identity this season, it’s been a remarkable 18 months and a time I won’t forget. But for me it’s time to move on.”

Langton has given his blessing to new manager Hughes, who has signed a two-year deal in the dugout.

“I like to think that Mark moving forward now has got a great platform to work on,” he said.

“He’s a great guy and he stepped into Tom’s shoes very, very well and I hope he carries on the good work. I’m sure that he will, and I will definitely be rooting for him.”
