Three wins on the bounce for Lynn's second string in Thurlow Nunn League First Division North

Joe Taylor bagged a brace as a rejuvenated King's Lynn Town Reserves outfit made it three league wins on the bounce at Felixstowe and Walton United Reserves on Saturday.

Asa Milliard opened the scoring in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North encounter to give the hosts a 1-0 interval lead, before Taylor struck twice after the break for Lynn's second string.

The result leaves Lynn Reserves sitting 16th in the table ahead of their midweek home clash against Diss Town.

Fakenham Town moved up to third in the league standings thanks to a 1-0 victory at league leaders Harleston Town.
