Superb Lynn go to top of table

September 9, 2017

It was more of the same for The Linnets as yet another fine home performance was rewarded with 3 points that saw Lynn go top of the Southern League. 


The Lynn fans barely had time to take their seats when visiting keeper Louis Connor was called upon to make a good low save to deny Ryan Hawkins, Michael Clunan latched on to the rebound but his effort narrowly missed the target.


Craig Parker had a chance but moments later when his head missed the target narrowly from a lovely cross from Cameron Norman.


Ryan Fryatt became the next Lynn player to have a chance, Fryatt's header from a well delivered Clunan free kick from the right went past the post.


Micheal Taylor had chance straight after, His shot from the edge of the box missed the target by a whisker.


The first goal for Lynn arrived on 26 minutes, Yet another perfectly judged Clunan delivery from the wide right was headed back across the face of goal and into the bottom corner by Michael Gash. 


That sparked Lynn into life and a foul on Norman inside the box by Lee Thomas resulted in a penalty that was slammed into the top right hand corner by Mr Reliable Clunan.


Just as the clock ticked into the 45th minute The Linnets went further ahead, A driving Frazer Blake-Tracy run ended with a rare misplaced pass from the full back, The pass fell to Clunan who then released Norman on the right who's drilled pass into the box found Leon Mettam who's first time effort beat Connor.


Lynn kept the squeeze on in the opening minutes of the second half, A driving run and cross from Hawkins was cleaned up in front of goal by the Stratford defence with no Linnets player on the scene to apply the crucial touch. 


Match referee Mr Burridge awarded the visitors a very soft penalty penalising Ryan Fryatt for a foul on Jazz Luckie, The resulting spot kick was converted by substitute Ben Stephens sending Alex Street the wrong way. 


Leon Mettam doubled his tally for the afternoon on 78 minutes, A superb piece of work by Gash on the Linnets left saw him turn the Stratford full back inside out and pulled the ball back inside the box and Mettam did the rest slamming into the net from inside the box.


It was also a good day for The Reseves as they picked up a fine 5-2 victory away at AFC Sudbury Reserves, Goals Matty Dye (2) and one each for Jack Frohawk, Dylan Edge and an own goal saw Backies men pick up a fine 3 points.
