....Lynn Town, has vowed to “freshen-up” his squad over the summer – whatever level the club find themselves playing at.
The Linnets’ 4-1 demise against St Ives Town in the final of the United Counties League KO Cup last Monday left the club without a trophy for a second successive campaign.
And despite going so close to success on a number of fronts in the past two years, Setchell has finally realised the need for change.
Setchell said: “There has been a lot of continuity over the past two seasons but there comes a time when you need to freshen things up.
“It’s the same at every club and we’re no different. Changes need to be made if we are to move forward.
“I didn’t learn anything new about us on Monday - it just enforced what I already knew.
“We should have been 3-0 up, but once St Ives scored the players’ heads dropped and we didn’t recover as a group.
“Although the difference between the two sides on the day was Conor Washington, we needed to be mentally stronger.”
Reflecting on the season as a whole, Setchell said: “The supporters are upset but I can assure you there is no one more disappointed than the players and myself.
“Nobody could have envisaged that we’d end up 106 points and it still wouldn’t be good enough to see us win the league.
“A lot of clubs would have liked to have the season we’ve just had, but there are a lot of clubs who don’t have the same level of expectation as King’s Lynn.
“Last season St Neots Town were an exceptional side but this season with Long Buckby I felt we had a genuine chance and when you look back there was only a goal between the two sides in both games.
“It’s only the last three weeks where the season went horribly wrong but let’s hope we are still fortunate enough to get promoted.
“If we do, I believe the club will go from strength-tostrength.”
The Football Association confirmed that the FA allocations meeting will take place on May 15th with an announcement for the 2012/13 set-up to be made on May 25th.
