Weekend preview

October 31, 2019

There really is no place like home and on Saturday, for the first time in three weeks, The Linnets sample once again The Walks atmosphere with the visit of Altrincham in the National League North. In fact it  has been a meagre  two previous  home league fixtures in the past two months for the home fans to enjoy with a run of away FA Cup ties taking away the continuity of walks Saturday afternoon’s. The in balance of fixtures and last weekend’s Kidderminster washout means  that Town will be looking for their first league victory since early September  when Alfreton were defeated by a  3 – 2 margin. Despite their lack of recent league action Lynn are still very handily placed in fifth position in what is a tight top half of the table.


Altrincham arrive at The Walks in eighteenth place in the league table and still in search of their first away league victory of the campaign.  However their home form is better having sampled victory on three occasions , scoring thirteen goals in the process. On the road however it’s a different  with four goals from seven fixtures.


Early team news suggests that Ryan Fryatt will again be missing , along with  Chris Smith who continues his recovery from a dislocated  elbow meaning that Rory McAuley remains Town’s only recognised centre back. Ryan Jarvis continues to receive treatment for a troublesome groin injury.


Saturday’s has been christened ‘ Armed services day ‘ at The Walks with free admission being offered to all armed services personnel  to watch the game on production of their ID. A collection will also be taken for the Royal British Legions poppy appeal .  


The Reserves have a local derby on Saturday with Fakenham Town at the Fenland Stadium, Wisbech  and on Sunday Lynn Ladies have a ERWFL Cup fixture away at Leigh Ramblers (1:30pm kick off).
