King's Lynn Town under-18s travel to Hitchin Town in FA Youth Cup

October 14, 2019

King's Lynn Town's under-18 side travel to Hitchin Town in the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday night knowing that victory would see them emulate their feat of reaching the first round proper from last season.
Lynn's youngsters are just 90 minutes away from a potential clash against a Football League outfit.
Last season, the club’s young-guns eventually went out 4-0 to Northampton Town in the First Round Proper, but were far from disgraced during a memorable night at the Sixfields Stadium.
Under-18 boss Neil Fryatt said: “It’s a big game for the lads because if they can win this then they might get to play a club from the Football League.
“It would be a real fillip for the football club to get to the first round proper again. In the end we were beaten at Northampton, but for 75 minutes we competed well.
“Doing well in the competition also helps you attract good young players to the club.”
The young Linnets have come through qualifying games against Mildenhall, Brantham Athletic and Bury Town to book a meeting against Hitchin.
“I don’t really know much about them but all I’m worried about is how we play.
“They’ve got a couple of young players who are in and around the first team so it will be a tough game, but if we approach it in the right manner then I know that we will be competitive.
“I’m looking forward to the game and playing a side we don’t normally play.”
