Busy Bank Holiday weekend for the Linnets

August 23, 2018

There will be no Bank Holiday break for the Linnets this weekend with the traditional hectic Saturday and Monday schedule ahead of them. 
The Linnets go into the weekend buoyed by their first win of the season at Tamworth last Saturday.
A couple of victories to round off the opening month of the campaign could see them take some significant steps towards the top half of the Southern Premier Central Division table.
On Saturday, Lynn entertain close rivals St Neots Town (The Walks, 3pm). 
The Linnets and Saints have a keen rivalry which dates back to the titanic tussles between the two sides when they battled for the United Counties League title following Town’s reformation. 
In recent seasons, the spoils have been shared between both teams with the last Walks meeting ending in a draw as Lynn pushed for the Southern Premier Division title. 
St Neots currently sit 14th in the table - a place above Lynn on goal difference - and last weekend slipped to a single-goal home defeat to Rushall Olympic.
On Monday, the action switches to Crown Meadow, home of Lowestoft Town, as non league's answer to the Suffolk v Norfolk derby takes place (3pm).
The clash has all the makings of a spicy encounter with the likes of Rory McAuley, Ryan Jarvis and Frazer Blake-Tracy lining up against their former club.
Former Linnets Adam Smith, Andy Fisk and Jacek Zielonka are all likely to feature for the Blues. 
Lowestoft also gained their first points of the season last weekend with a 3-2 success over Hitchin Town, which lifted them to 13th place in the league table.
Manager Simon Clark is looking for his side to build on last Saturday's victory in Staffordshire.
"We trained well on Monday and are keen to build some momentum," said Clark.
"The weekend is one little step towards where we want to get to and it would be nice to put on a performance for the fans. The first goal on Saturday will be massive.
"We want to play every game for our supporters, both home and away, and give them something to shout about. Both games will be tough for different reasons.
"Monday is a derby and they are never easy fixtures. It will be all about using our squad depth over the two games."
The Linnets have no new injury worries ahead of the weekend. 
Michael Gash is getting closer to a return to the squad and could be involved on Monday. 
The club are still awaiting to receive international clearance for Portuguese striker Valter Rocha before he is available for selection.
Lynn Reserves will be looking to bounce back after last weekend’s 4-0 home defeat to Norwich CBS when they travel to Ipswich Wanderers in the Thurlow Nunn Division One North (3pm).
