Chris Henderson was the hero as the Linnets netted a vital three points at The Walks on Saturday to secure Town’s place in the end-of-season play-offs.
It’s as you were in the Southern Premier, Central Division table with Lynn’s rivals Stourbridge, Alvechurch and Stratford Town all winning.
Lynn maintain third place in the table while Kettering Town were confirmed champions following a 1-0 victory at Halesowen Town.
Town began quickly and strongly and went ahead after only 11 minutes when Ross Barrows headed home at the back post from Frazer Blake-Tracy’s curling centre.
The home side then had a huge let off when Tyrell Waite intercepted Alex Street’s pass out but somehow fired wide of an open goal from 12 yards.
Michael Gash headed wide and Jas Singh produced a fine save to thwart Adam Marriott as Lynn continued to dominate the half but were unable to convert their pressure into goals.
The second half continued in much the same way with visiting keeper Singh keeping the Linnets out on numerous occasions.
With eight minutes remaining it looked as if the Linnets may rue their missed chances as Tamworth equalised on the break.
This time Waite made no mistake as he swept home from close range.
Lynn, though, were not to be denied and in the 85th minute Henderson kept his cool inside the visiting penalty box to calmly slot the ball beyond Singh for an important goal in what is turning out to be an enthralling play-off chase.
