Cinderford Town 1 King’s Lynn Town 2



The Linnets completed their first double of the Evo-stik season thanks to a brace from hero Ryan Fryatt, the winner coming in the 90th minute.

The home side went ahead thanks to a 34th minute penalty.

Keeper Alex Street was sent off, but ten-man Lynn somehow conjured up an away win against the odds.

The first chance of the match fell to the visitors’ recent on-loan capture Kegan Everington, but his shot was blocked by Cinderford’s Isacc Kelly.

The next minute saw a ball in from Shaun McWilliams to find Walks forward Toby Hilliard but home goalkeeper Cameron Clarke was quickly out to block his attempt.

Karnell Chambers, who had forced Street to save for a corner, netted the opening goal after he had been hauled down by Lynn centre-half Tom Ward, making no mistake from the spot.

The Walks outfit came close to equalising just before the break when Tom Ward got on the end of Michael Clunan’s corner but the effort was just wide of the target.

Seconds before the break Jarred Welch had a one-on-one opportuntity versus Street, however the Lynn shotstopper denied him.

The Linnets levelled five minutes into the second half when McWilliams’ ball out to Sam Warburton resulted in an pinpoint centre which found the head of defender-turned-scorer Ryan Fryatt at the back post whose thumping header gave Clarke no chance.

A talking point took place on 68 minutes when Street came out of his area to make a tackle on Elliot Ford but his challenge resulted in a straight red card, reducing Lynn to ten men with stand-in keeper Charlie Congreve coming on for his first team debut.

With the game seemingly destined for a draw, that man Fryatt at the back post nodded home Clunan’s free-kick to net Lynn’s late winner.
