It's back-to-back wins and clean sheets for Lynn's second string

Just like buses, you wait forever for one win to arrive and then two come along at once.

That has been the case with King’s Lynn Town Reserves who made it back-to-back league wins and clean sheets in the space of a week with a 4-0 success over Wisbech St Mary.

Lynn’s young second string produced an excellent display at The Walks – much to the delight of their management team – to continue their climb up the Thurlow Nunn Division One North table.

Manager Neil Fryatt said: “Although we hadn’t won a game for a long while, the lads have been equal with the majority of sides between both boxes in most games.

“They played well. It was a competitive game but we enjoyed the majority of possession. It has been a big ask for several of the players with a number of them playing for the youth team on Thursday night as well.

“Confidence is high, we scored four good goals. The team should be proud of what they achieved. They got their just desserts on Saturday.

“I’m pleased for them as they’ve never lost belief in the way that Adam (Seal) and myself want them to play.

“The confidence and belief has never dropped with this group as a lot of them have been winning games for the youth team.

“It bodes well for the future but there is still work to do. The real tests will come at the back-end of the season when we play the likes of Downham and Swaffham.”

Lynn's goals came from Charlie Rudland (2), Luke Johnson and Joe Taylor.

The only slight disappointment for Fryatt, on an afternoon when Dylan Edge made his return to the team following a recent injury, was the size of the crowd.

“We had 89 there on Saturday, an improvement on recent weeks, but I still think we should be getting more,” said Fryatt.

“Hopefully a few of the people who were there at the weekend will go away and tell others about the good football we played and it might encourage a few more to come along.”

Elsewhere, Ben Baxter-Hunt scored a hat-trick and also turned provider for Matty Calvert to score a fourth as Downham Town also turned on the style with a 4-2 success on their travels at Ipswich Wanderers.

The results leaves eighth-placed Downham a few points clear of the chasing pack.

Fakenham Town also found the back of the net four times as they won by the same scoreline against Felixstowe and Walton United Reserves at Clipbush Park.

Connor Charlesworth, Callum Brain, Alex Walpole and Ryan Curtis were all on target for the Ghosts, who remain fifth in the league standings.

Swaffham Town, who were without a fixture at the weekend, turn their attentions to the Norfolk Senior Cup on Wednesday night.

The Pedlars face a tough ask against higher-league Dereham in the semi-final at the Football Development Centre (7.30pm).
