Four-some Linnets boost play-off hopes by beating Coalville.

March 3, 2019

King’s Lynn Town produced one of their best home performances of the season as they saw off Southern Premier Central play-off rivals Coalville Town 4-1 at The Walks.
Chris Henderson registered stunning efforts in either half while there was one apiece from Michael Gash and Adam Marriott for Lynn, who could even afford the luxury of skipper Michael Clunan missing an early penalty against the Ravens.
Despite missing from the spot, Lynn calmed their nerves with a beautifully-crafted goal in the 27th minute as Marriott threaded the ball through to Henderson to open the scoring.
Andrew Wright thumped home an equaliser four minutes later before Frazer Blake-Tracy put the ball on a plate for Gash to restore the home side's lead two minutes before the interval.
Any hopes the visitors had of getting back into the contest were ended by Henderson 30 seconds into the second period when he converted another Marriott pass in emphatic style to knock the stuffing out of the visitors.
Marriott deservedly added his name to the scoresheet from the penalty spot to take his tally for the campaign to 17 after Ryan Hawkins had been upended by former Linnet Kalern Thomas.
Meanwhile, King's Lynn Town Reserves continued their recent good form in Thurlow Nunn League Division One North.
Joe Taylor bagged a brace as Lynn's second string came from behind to make it three league wins on the bounce at Felixstowe and Walton United Reserves.
Asa Milliard gave the hosts a 1-0 interval lead, before Taylor struck twice after the break.
The result leaves King's Lynn Town Reserves sitting 16th in the table ahead of their midweek home clash against Diss Town on Wednesday.
