Thurlow Nunn League Division One
King’s Lynn Reserves 1 Debenham LC 0
King’s Lynn Town Reserves boss Jonathan Hawes saluted his young-guns after they accounted for top-ten opposition for the second successive week.
A Nathan Daw goal just after the quarter-hour mark separated the two sides as Lynn moved up to sixth in the table.
Hawes said: “It was probably the best performance we’ve put in this season and both teams played their part in a great game of football.
“It was a tough, competitive game and the young players who came in did really well.”
Lynn went into the game without four players through suspension and Hawes admitted they will have a battle on their hands to get their shirts straight back.
“If the younger players are all available for our next game, they will probably keep their shirts,” said Hawes.
“It wasn’t as if we defeated a team struggling at the foot of the table, we beat a big, strong and physical Debenham side.
“Young Eoin McQuaid had a great game, Jack Frohawk terrorised their defence with his pace and Luke Biles is getting back to full fitness and has been like a new signing for us.”
