King's Lynn Town Reserves off to a winning start
King’s Lynn Town Reserves manager Adam Seal lavished praise on some of his youngsters following their 2-1 win at big-spending March Town United on Tuesday night.
Seal’s young-guns got their Thurlow Nunn League First Division North campaign off to the perfect start by claiming the bragging rights from the derby clash.
Jack Frohawk humbled the Hares with a brace while there were a string of fine performances across the pitch for Lynn, who had Owen Gilbert, 16, sent-off 15 minutes from time.
A delighted Seal said: “We were absolutely magnificent. We went there with a game plan and had to be strong and very disciplined at the back.
“March are a very, very big side but we dealt with them really well. We had two 16-year-olds playing at centre-half and both of them were excellent.
“Jack Frohawk ran his socks off and scored two good goals and we had good balance all over the pitch.
“You have to remember that these lads weren’t just playing against an average side, they were up against a team who will do well.
“There won’t be too many teams who go there and pick up points. I fully expect March to be up there challenging.”
Gilbert and Freddie Collison were outstanding at the back for Lynn.
Seal also had special praise for goalkeeper Charlie Congreve who, after making an error for the home side’s equaliser, pulled off some fine stops.
“Yes Charlie made a mistake for their goal, but he put it behind him and made two or three great saves to keep us in the game after we went down to ten men.”
Seal believes the future is bright for the crop of youngsters coming through the ranks at the Walks.
“We’ve got lots of good youngsters coming through at the club who will only get better through playing,” said Seal.
