Southern League Premier Division
King’s Lynn Town 4 Royston Town 0
King’s Lynn Town turned on the second half style at The Walks last night to remain top of the Evostik League Southern Division.
After a goalless first half, three goals in a ten-minute spell put the game to bed against Royston Town
The Linnets broke the deadlock in the 62nd minute when Ryan Hawkins played a precision pass for Michael Gash to find the back of the net.
It wasn’t long before Hawkins took centre stage himself when the youngster doubled Lynn’s lead with a well-struck shot three minutes later.
Midfielder Michael Clunan converted from the penalty spot following a foul on Craig Parker.
Hawkins completed the scoring with the best goal of the night in the 90th minute after a wonderful curling strike from just outside the box.
The home side played some delightful stuff in the second period and Hawkins could have easily helped himself to a hat-trick with another effort coming back off the post.
