Marriott breaks 20-goal barrier in Halesowen win

March 31, 2019

The Linnets secured a comfortable Walks win over lowly Halesowen Town on Saturday afternoon. 
The victory ensured that Town remain third in the Southern Premier Central Division table, four points clear of fourth-placed Stratford Town but now only two points behind second-placed Stourbridge who were held to a home 1-1 draw with St Ives Town. 
All three teams have played 37 games and have five matches left to play.
Lynn took the lead within ten minutes of the start with the in-form Adam Marriott firing an unstoppable 20-yard shot beyond Daniel Platt in the visitors goal. 
Marriott quickly doubled both his and the Linnets tally when he converted from the penalty spot after Chris Henderson had been upended in the penalty area. 
The goal was Marriot’s 21st in all competitions for Town this season.
Indeed the striker could have had a 20-minute treble and was only denied by the post with a close range drive. 
Michael Clunan drilled a shot just wide from fully 20 yards and Ryan Fryatt smashed a header onto the woodwork following a Frazer Blake-Tracy corner. 
Marriott completed a one-sided half with a glancing header which was inches wide of the target.
The game was over as a contest within a minute of the restart as Marriott played in the busy Henderson who produced a composed finish from the edge of the box. 
The Linnets then proceeded to see out the game comfortably and collect a huge three points, much to the delight of an almost 800-strong crowd who gave their team a standing ovation on the final whistle.
Lynn: Street, Barrows (Hawkins 70), Fryatt, McAuley, Blake-Tracy, Richards, Jarvis (Jones 61), Clunan, Henderson (Parker 66), Marriott, Gash. Subs not used: Limb, Mellors-Blair.
