Linnets manager happy after latest friendly win

July 21, 2019

Manager Ian Culverhouse feels that his squad are about where they should be after the Linnets reached the halfway point of their pre-season schedule. 
Speaking after goals from Sam Kelly, Ryan Fryatt and Aaron Jones had secured a 3-0 win at Needham Market on Saturday, the Lynn boss said: "We are still at the stage where it’s about getting minutes into the lads and installing back match sharpness that you can only do by playing games. 
"It gives me the chance to have a look at things without the pressure of a league game and to look at players in a different way than maybe you do in the normal cut and thrust of things.
"Chris Smith has came in today and done well. I’m pleased to have him on board with us and now we are maybe looking at one more player to complete the squad’.
The Linnets went ahead after only three minutes when Kelly tapped home after Adam Marriott’s initial shot was palmed directly to him by the home goalkeeper.  
Kelly then turned provider for Fryatt, whose header was adjudged to have crossed the line by the referee with his assistant unsighted. 
Former Linnet Craig Parker hit the post for the hosts following a free-kick, but the visitors were always in control with Jones rounding off the scoring with a deflected shot on 76 minutes.
