Leaders King's Lynn let three-goal lead slip at Chester





King's Lynn Town seem set on producing their own Goal of the Season competition in the National League North – but let a three-goal lead slip at the Deva Stadium in a dramtic 3-3 draw this afternoon.

Midfielder Theo Widdrington scored a stunning effort from the halfway line in the opening few minutes after Gold Omotayo had put the Linnets ahead from the penalty spot a minute earlier.

Jordan Ponticelli made it 3-0 just before the interval before Lynn collapsed in the second half.
