Reigning Premier League champions Lynn started their campaign with a 2-2 draw against Soham.

Lynn started the game off strongly, moving the ball around well and their early efforts were rewarded when Owen Norris found some space on the edge of the penalty area; a precise ball played from Josh Taylor allowed Owen to finish first time, leaving the keeper no time to react.

A few minutes later, Lynn doubled their advantage with a Jack Tucker far post finish, initiated from a well-executed move assisted again through Taylor.

Lynn were unable to add to their tally before going into half-time despite having the majority of possession and hitting the post and bar on multiple occasions.

The second half was the opposite to the first with Lynn allowing Soham to dominate possession.

Soham had a few chances early on which were swiftly denied by keeper Tom Allander.

Unfortunately one too many mistakes from the Lynn defence ended in a goal for Soham.

This energised the visitors and they took this momentum into the remainder of the second half.

Lynn, unable to dominate possession as they did in the first half, didn’t have an answer and allowed Soham in to score an equaliser.

The rest of the game was quite uneventful up until the last minute.

Soham were determined to hold on to their draw, but a frustrated Lynn outfit committed their 10th team foul with four seconds left on the clock, giving Soham a direct free hit.

The dramatic end to the game saw Tom Allander deny Soham’s direct free hit.

Thanks to all of the supporters that came to watch, and to club sponsors Hog House Kitchen & Tropics Two and All Signs.

Lynn, who won ten consecutive Premier League titles before Covid struck, will look to bounce back from this draw when they take on London on November 27.

The club are running roller skating sessions with a coach every Friday between 6pm and 7pm at Alive Lynnsport.

The cost is £2 and this includes skate hire.
