A mainly reserve-based squad will be the order of the night when King’s Lynn Town travel to Caister in the Fourth Round of the Norfolk Senior Cup tomorrow.

First-teamers Shaun Stocker and Chris Ward will join the Reserve squad in what appears to be the first meeting between clubs representing the two towns in the competition.

Caister are currently 11th in the Anglian Combination Premier Division and have reached this stage by virtue of wins against Harleston Town (3-2) and Reepham Town (4-2).

The game will be played at Emerald Park, home of Thurlow Nunn Premier Division side Gorleston.

Linnets boss Gary Setchell said of the weekend’s 3-2 defeat at Blyth Spartans: “I’ve got no complaints with the result and Blyth deserved the win.

“We had players missing through suspension and injury, but we’ve conceded three goals. There are no excuses.”

Meanwhile, King’s Lynn Town Reserves secured back-to-back league wins for the first time since September with a five-star performance at home to Leiston Reserves

A brace from Jack Frohawk, plus strikes from Gino Livoti, Nelson Moriera and Alan Burch secured a comfortable three points in a 5-1 Thurlow Nunn Division One triumph.

Reserves boss Jonathan Hawes said: “It was a good win. It was a good performance and we scored some excellent goals.

“We had a couple of 16-year-olds involved with the squad in Kiaran Shipp and Danny Setchell (son of first team boss Gary), but we are going to integrate them in slowly.”
