Linnets beaten by Stourbridge

September 1, 2018

Southern League Central Premier Division

King's Lynn Town 0 Stourbridge 1

King's Lynn Town's miserable start to the season continued as Stourbridge went home with all three points from The Walks.

Aaron Forde netted the the only goal of the game two minutes before the interval to leave the Linnets without a goal for 324 minutes.

In the seventh minute, a jinking run and shot from Luke Benbow was well saved by Alex Street down to his left.

Lynn's first effort four minutes later saw Michael Clunan's fee-kick just evade the outstretched leg of Ryan Fryatt.

That was all the hosts offered in the first period and two minutes before the interval it was Stourbridge who took the lead when Forde drilled home from the edge of the area.

Stourbridge failed to make the most of an opening early in the second period as they looked to kill the game off.

The introduction of Nathen Stewart finally breathed some kind of life into the home side as the substitute fired into the side netting after bursting through into the box.

Midway through the second half, a Ryan Hawkins pull-back summed up Lynn's afternoon after his pass evaded three colleagues in the Stourbridge penalty area.

The dangerous Benbow should have doubled the Glassboys' advantage ten minutes from time but the frontman was denied by the legs of Street.
