Hampton 1 Lynn JFC 2

On Sunday the young King’s Lynn boys travelled to Peterborough for another top of the table clash against a team they have never managed to beat.

The two teams have met three times over the last two seasons and Lynn have only managed a draw and two losses against the two-times Division One winners, so it was a big game. From the starting team talk Lynn had their minds set on a win.

All the boys put in 100 per cent and played their hearts out and it wasn’t long before Lynn’s Jo Taylor opened the scoring in the first half. The second half was much the same and Dylan Ess increased the lead.

Near the end Hampton came back and netted but Lynn’s defence stayed solid.

Manager Carl Carter said: “This is the biggest win for us and the lads since we started the club three years ago and we are proud of the whole team.”

Dersingham Rovers 5

Both sides started slowly on a difficult pitch and there were only a few chances created in the first half, but Rovers took the lead though a well taken goal by Cairen O’Brien to lead at half-time.

Kicking downhill in the second half, the away side controlled the game and created several more chances.

Goals came from Noah Handley, Ben Welch (2) and a very rare strike by the impressive Cameron Smeaton.

A good solid all round team performance by Rovers, with Joe Denton having an impressive game at left back and a clean sheet for Luke Batterham.

Hungate Rovers Greens 3, Downham 0

Greens recorded their third clean sheet in a row but were made to work hard for it by an impressive team.

The first half finished goalless with both sides hitting the woodwork. After the break Hungate got into their stride with some great attacking play.

Their efforts were rewarded by three clinical strikes from Kyle Campbell and Aaron Buckley (2). Aaron’s second was the pick with a fantastic first time shot.

Credit to both sides for some attractive attacking football, helped by the ref.
