Alex Street selects his best Lynn XI

April 7, 2020

Record-breaking King's Lynn Town goalkeeper Alex Street has seen his career flourish with the Linnets during his 11 years with the club.
Street has made more than 450 appearances in a Lynn shirt after breaking Billy Bedwell’s 378 appearance milestone on the all-time goalkeeping list at the Walks.
The 29-year-old, whose sporting hero is Peter Schmeichel, has won the Northern Premier League Division One South (2012/13), the Norfolk Senior Cup (2016/17), the Southern Midland Premier Play-Off and is a Super Play-Off winner (2018/19) with the Linnets. 
Here, the shotstopper has picked out the best players that he has played alongside since breaking through as a youngster at The Walks.

 

Alex Street's Best King's Lynn Town XI (formation 4-4-2)

 

Goalkeeper

Danny Gay: There hasn’t been many goalkeepers at the club in my time but the only one who stands out is Danny. A great goalkeeper who was a big part of the league winning side at step four.
Left-back

Frazer Blake-Tracy: Fraser is one of the best fun backs I have ever played with. An all-round modern defender, he is closely followed by Jordan Young, who is another quality ball playing full-back.
Centre-back

Phil Gulliver: Phil was a fantastic centre half and the main reason Lynn enjoyed success at step four. 
Centre-back

Rory McAuley: A natural born defender who wore his heart on his sleeve.
Right-back

Cameron Norman: Hands down, it has to be Cameron, who has so much ability in attacking and defending. 
Left midfield

Dan Jacobs: Dan could play anywhere you told him and still wouldn’t look out of place. Great player.
Right midfield

Stephen Spriggs: The easiest decision of this team. Stephen's goalscoring record from this position speaks for itself. Great person on and off the pitch. 
Centre midfield

Ryan Jarvis: He is an absolute pleasure to watch and play with. I would have loved to see him play live when he was younger. I’ll just have to do with him scoring a worldy against Liverpool.
Centre midfield

George Thompson: A quality player who is still doing his thing at Harrogate in the National League. 
Striker

Michael Gash: He is by far the best number nine I have ever played with, his work is rate is second to none. 
Striker

Adam Marriott: I don’t need to say too much about this man. His goals for Lynn this year and his partnership with Michael Gash has made them the most feared pair in the Conference North. 

 

Substitutes
Chris Henderson
– I didn’t know a lot about Hendo when he joined lynn but what a player to watch.
He has so much technical ability and I would recommend any aspiring young midfielders to watch this man!
Richard Bunting – This man was captain when lynn won the league. He was a leader and the team respected him because of his work rate and passion he brought to the pitch.
Jack Defty – I don’t need to say much about the “Bear”. His goal record for Lynn is incredible and everyone knows he is a King's Lynn legend.
Mike Clunan – Like Richard Bunting, Michael's work rate is fantastic on the pitch.
He probably goes unnoticed a lot of the time because he is surrounded by quality players. Has done a great job as captain and has everyone's respect in the squad and at the club.
Paul Cousins – Paul is what you would call a horrible defender. No nonsense, and would be in your face the whole game. Put his body on the line every time he was out on the pitch.
