Linnets produce fine pre-season performance

Stamford AFC 0-3 King’s Lynn Town

Only in their second pre-season game of the campaign but The Linnets put on a fine display at The Zeeco Stadium.

Much like Wednesday night, Manager Ian Culverhouse was able to get minutes into all of his squad as he rotated his players to get valuable minutes under their belts.

Lynn dominated possession from the very first whistle and it was Craig Parker that tested the reflexes of home keeper Dan Haystead, Parker created a chance that Michael Clunan fired over from the edge of the box.

Lynn fielded trialist Tom Siddons and he had the next chance, The big striker latched onto a through pass from Clunan and cut inside his marker before curling an effort towards goal that was again well saved by Haystead.

The first goal arrived on 34 minutes a delightful strike from Ryan Jarvis from the edge of the box that was deflected but still carried enough power to find the top corner.

Culverhouse changed 10 of his starting 11 at the half time break, Only Sam Gaughran featured at the start of the second half that played the first half, He was later replaced by Ryan Fryatt.

Lynn doubled their lead on 58 minutes, Kieran Shipp slipped the ball through to another trialist Jair Minors who made no mistake in finding the net with a confident finish.

Youngster Ryan Harnwell got his name on the score sheet with a powerful strike from inside the area that left the home keeper with no chance after the striker had held off the attention of the Stamford defenders to create the space.
