Linnets lose Norwich City friendly

King's Lynn Town 1 Norwich City 2
Two goals in as many second half minutes from Norwich City's young guns condemned King's Lynn Town to defeat this evening.
Substitute Toby Hilliard converted a Ryan Hawkins centre to give Lynn the lead shortly after the restart before the Canaries hit back through Devonte Aransibia and Adam Idah to claim the friendly spoils.
The Linnets fielded Harry Limb, Rory McAuley, Kalern Thomas, Jordan Richards, Kieran Higgs, Nathan Stewart and Aaron Jones against their Championship visitors in the first half.
A strong Norwich side enjoyed plenty of possession but Lynn gave an excellent account during a goalless first half.
The hosts had goalkeeper Alex Street to thank for an excellent save down to his left while Dennis Srbeny dragged another effort wide as the half-time whistle approached.
Other than Street, Lynn made ten changes for the start of the second period and Norwich followed suit by making nine of their own 20 minutes after the restart.
By that time Hilliard had fired home at the far post to give a hard-working Lynn outfit an unexpected lead.
Srbeny struck the woodwork for the Canaries who introduced a raft of youngsters to give them some fresh legs on the pitch.
Aransibia slid the ball under Street to equalise on 71 minutes before Wildschut set up Adam Idah to smash home the winner from close range shortly after.
