The Linnets moved into second place in the Vanarama National League North with this convincing win over sixth placed Curzon Ashton.
The visitors day had got off to a bad start with their team coach breaking down two hours from The Walks resulting in a delayed kick off at 3:45pm. However any fatigue they may have felt didn’t show early on and after a sharp start Callum Saunders ( son of former Liverpool striker Dean) pounced to give his team the lead. This appeared to give Lynn the prod they needed to get themselves into gear and Adam Marriott levelled things up from the spot after a defender was adjudged to have handled in the box. The momentum was now with Town and they had the lead when Michael Gash rose high to power home Aaron Jones’s precise cross just before the break.
The Linnets were now a different proposition controlling the game all over the park. Gash got his second midway through the half with almost a carbon copy of his first with Nathan Fox this time providing the ammunition. Marriott was on hand for his second and Lynn’s fourth minutes later as he took full advantage of some tired defending to send the majority of the 833 crowd home happy.
Lynn: Street, Jones, Fox, Jarvis (Richards), Fryatt, McAuley, Clunan, Payne (Carey), Gash, Marriott, Henderson (Kelly) Subs not used: Barrows, Stewart
