King's Lynn Town 2 March Town United 2
A young King’s Lynn Town Reserve outfit earned a valuable point in their first home outing at Wisbech Town’s Fenland Stadium on Wednesday evening.
First team full-back Ross Barrows was given a full 90 minutes in a side that contained only two players over the age of 20 ( Barrows and Kieran Shipp).
Lynn took the lead on 12 minutes through Joe Taylor who prodded home from close range after ex-Lynn goalkeeper Charlie Congreve had fumbled Luke Johnson’s 30 yard effort.
An experienced March Town side responded and equalised five minutes later and took the lead on 25 minutes through another ex-Linnet in the shape of Jack Friend.
However, Lynn rolled up their sleeves and held firm and right on the stroke of half-time Johnson produced a dazzling piece of individual skill, producing a long and mazy run through the visitors defence before confidently beating Congreve to level things up.
No further goals followed in the second spell but manager Neil Fryatt would have seen enough in this determined display to give him confidence for the season ahead.
The reserves travel to Felixstowe on Saturday for their next league fixture.
