King’s Lynn Town FC won their first silverware of their pre-season by lifting the Joma Challenge Cup on Saturday.

The Linnets ran out 2-1 victors in Essex, making a winning start to their season, despite falling behind to Harlow in the first period.

The home side took the lead via Alex Read just after the half-hour, but Lynn equalised on half-time when Liam Hurst nodded home a cross from Jackson Ramm.

The deciding goal came from the foot of full-back Ramm who scored a howitzer from some 30 yards.

The match was played in memory of Harlow manager Danny Chapman’s son Jack and in aid of Cystinosis Foundation. More info on the condition can be found at: http://www.cystinosis.org.uk

Lynn’s new under 18 team defeated a Peterborough United U16 team 3-1.
