Linnets set for tough test in Wales

December 21, 2017

The Linnets begin their festive programme on Saturday with the long trip to South Wales to take on Merthyr Town on their 3G surface. 


Lynn have been inactive for the past two weeks as games with Gosport Borough and Slough Town fell victim to wintry weather. With the cold snap having released its grip manager Ian Culverhouse cannot wait for the action to get underway again.


Speaking to the official Linnets website Ian had this to say.


“It has been a frustrating spell said the Lynn boss, The games were flowing nicely then suddenly the weather turned and we have lost some fixtures. 


“People have said to me it’s a bit of a trip being so close to Christmas but believe you me I would much prefer going on the Saturday as to a wet night in January. 


“We will travel on the day on a comfortable coach , hopefully do a job, and then jump back on it and come home , I have no problem with the situation at all. 


“The lads have trained well over the last week or so and maybe the little break may well have freshened some of the lads up a little bit and allowed some knocks and bruises to heal, We will be without both Ryan (Fryatt) and Michael (Clunan) so I will have to shuffle the pack a bit and change some things. 


“That’s what I am paid to do and to date really we have been lucky with injuries and suspensions so again we will take it all in our stride, I am expecting a tough fixture with Merthyr and with all of their recent problems off the pitch I am sure that will have further galvanised them on the pitch even more. 


“Some players who left them a few weeks back have now returned which will strengthen them further, The surface I am sure we will enjoy as we do like to try to get the ball down and play so it should be a good contest’.

Both fixtures between the teams ended in 1-1 draws last season with Lee Stevenson being the Linnets scorer on both occasions.

Closer to home the Reserves face Needham Market Reserves at The Walks (3pm).
