King's Lynn Town soundly beaten by Solihull Moors in the National League




Solihull Moors 5 King's Lynn Town 0

King's Lynn Town were given a rude awakening as their unbeaten start to the season was ended in emphatic fashion by Solihull Moors.

The Linnets were soundly beaten in their third game of the campaign this afternoon after shipping four goals in the second half.

Manager Ian Culverhouse pulled no punches after the final whistle.

A stunned Lynn boss said: "Unless we learn our lessons really quickly we'll be on the end of a few more of those before the end of the season.

"We're conceding too many soft goals and two of them came from restarts again. We've had a good talk in there and we've got to learn quickly.

"They are a very good side and I expect them to go close to winning the league this season. It's about us learning to play in the right areas of the field and stopping the distances when we can't play."

On-loan Aston Villa striker Cameron Archer was the catalyst for Lynn's humbling with a brace while Joe Sbarra, Jamey Osborne and Callum Howe were also on target as Solihull picked up their second straight win.

The Linnets made changes for their third game in the space of the week, with Archie Mair replacing Alex Street between the posts and Ross Barrows coming in for the injured Simon Power, who was ruled out with a groin strain.

Solihull went ahead six minutes before the break after Archer did well down the right and cut the ball back into the path of the Sbarra, who applied a low finish.

Archer grabbed his first goal for the club two minutes after the interval as he headed home a Jordan Cranston corner.

Substitute Osborne then produced a memorable strike, lobbing goalkeeper Archie Mair from 30 yards, before then seeing a shot pushed away seven minutes later, with teenage frontman Archer on hand to tap in the rebound.

Osborne was also involved in the fifth goal, as his corner was powered home by captain Howe in the 81st minute to put the icing on a thumping win for the hosts.

The Linnets will look to bounce straight back when they entertain Boreham Wood at The Walks on Tuesday night.
