Linnets prepare for final friendly as two players are released

August 2, 2018

The Linnets conclude their pre season schedule on Saturday when near rivals Spalding United visit The Walks (3pm).
To date manager Simon Clark has rotated his squad, getting valuable minutes and fitness into his players, as well as using the games to cast an eye over potential new signings who have played for Town on a trial basis. 
However on Saturday it is expected that Clark will possibly play has favoured starting line up with the club's opening Southern Central Division fixture with Biggleswade Town only seven days away.
Clark said: "We will go super strong against Spalding as we need the cohesion going into our first league game against Biggleswade.
"We will also train twice next week before the Biggleswade game. We've still got bits to work on but are getting better."
Lynn secured a 2-0 victory at Yaxley Town on Tuesday evening, following on from the 1-1 draw achieved at Basford Town on Saturday, thanks to second half efforts from Toby Hilliard (penalty) and Nathen Stewart.
"We worked hard and dominated the ball," said Clark.
"There were some good individual bits but at times we turned the ball over too cheaply. We were a lot better in the second half."
Saturday’s visitors The Tulips are expected to provide The Linnets with a useful workout and include ex-Lynn striker Tom Siddons amongst their ranks.
The only player missing for Lynn will be injured midfielder Ryan Jarvis.
Clark has since confirmed that striker Dylan Edge and summer triallist Kieran Higgs had parted company with the club.
Edge made 34 appearances (16 starts) for the first team, scoring seven goals.
He was leading scorer for the reserves last season with 20 goals from 36 appearances.
Decisions have still got to be made on defender Matty Castellan and triallists Jordan Nelson and Aaron Jones.
