Downham Town 3

King’s Lynn Reserves 1

In-form striker Karl Tansley led the way as Town on Friday beat rivals King’s Lynn at The Memorial in a eagerly awaited West Norfolk derby which was witnessed by a bumper crowd of more than 200.

Downham again put in an a fine team performance and rose to third spot with goals from Pat Yates, Tansley (his fifth in two games) and Connor Walker; with Lynn only replying the once through Jack Frohawk.

Tansley owed a lot to Andy Willmott who produced an inch perfect cross after a fine run down the wing. It was an great team performance from the hosts against their tenth-place local rivals.

Attendance: 208.
