Following their super-play-off success during 18/19, Kings Lynn Town will be one of Harriers’ new opponents for the upcoming season.
The Linnets finished in second place in the Southern League Premier Division Central, fourteen behind title winners Kettering Town – who also enter National League North for 19/20 – on 80 points.
Entering the play-offs, the side from The Walks progressed past Stratford Town in the semi-final, winning 3-1, before emerging victorious against 3-0 in the final against Alvechurch.
However, due to ongoing league structural changes, for one season only, the play-off final winners had one further hurdle in the way before promotion was sealed.
The super-play-offs saw Kings Lynn face the play-off winners from the Northern Premier League Premier Division, Warrington Town, and won 3-2 after extra time to gain promotion.
Managed by former Norwich City defender Ian Culverhouse, The Linnets squad includes former Harrier, Michael Gash, who netted the promotion winning goal against Warrington in May.
Harriers last faced Kings Lynn at The Walks in an FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round tie in October 2008, winning 5-1 – newly appointed Harriers assistant Russ Penn getting his name on the score sheet.
