Linnets progress in Trophy

November 27, 2019

The Linnets secured their passage into the first round of the FA Trophy with this stunning replay victory at Edgar Street, Hereford on Tuesday evening.


With both teams locked in a Walks stalemate at the weekend this time they made no mistake in front of goal  and early strikes from Rory McAuley and Ross Barrows, both from set pieces, saw Town ease into a two goal lead with only seven minutes played.


As was to be expected the hosts came more into the game in the second spell and Lynn had keeper Alex Street to thank for preserving their two goal advantage  when he produced a fine penalty stop to prevent the hosts reducing the arrears. With five minutes remaining substitute Sonny Carey made sure there was to be no sniff of a home comeback with a goal from close range to complete a memorable evening for the Linnets.


Lynn will now host National Conference side Dover Athletic on Saturday December 14th.


Lynn: Street, Jones, Fox, Kelly (Hawkins), McAuley, Barrows, Clunan, Richards, Gash (Payne), Marriott, Henderson (Carey)


Subs not used: Jarvis, Bastock

Attendance: 715
