Wealdstone 2 King's Lynn Town 1

There was no winning National League swansong from King's Lynn Town as they ended their campaign with defeat on the road at Wealdstone this afternoon.

Gold Omotayo scored his sixth goal in as many games to give Lynn a half-time advantage before efforts from Josh Umerah and Ira Jackson saw Wealdstone fight back to take the three points in the second half.

The relegated Linnets ended the season in 21st place with eight wins and ten draws from their 44 games.

Tommy Widdrington's side were good value for their interval lead and perhaps the only surprise is that they didn't take a bigger advantage into the break.

Omotayo broke the deadlock nine minutes before the interval after the frontman reacted the quickest to head home after Josh Barrett's free-kick came back off the woodwork.

Sixteen minutes into the second half Connor McAvoy played in Umerah who was allowed both time and space to equalise for the hosts.

After some prolonged home pressure, Wealdstone get their reward by netting the winner with three minutes left on the clock.
