Comments & ID Thoughts

This is a better photo I managed to take of the same spider, found in the back of a draw in my kitchen, I’ve been on many identification websites and can’t find any matches

Looks like a male or baby lace weaver spider. ( females tend to have huge abdomens compared to males so I’ve read? ) Quite common in the UK apparently.
