King's Lynn Town 2 Ramsbottom United 1|
Saturday 20th December
Lynn completed their first double of the season in a match that was bad tempered both on and off the pitch.
After a scrappy opening Ramsbottom took the lead on 17 minutes from a Grant Spencer free kick which evaded the wall and hit the motionless Alex Street's right hand post before crossing back
across goal hitting the other post before crossing the line.
Lynn equalised seven minutes after the restart. David Bell's free kick was half cleared and fell to George Thomson whose shot from the edge of the area
was blocked and the loose ball was slammed home by Michael Frew.
The winner came with four minutes of normal time remaining when Frew latched onto a poor backpass to score from a fine angle.
Rammy ended the game with ten men when Scott Burton received his second booking of the afternoon.
Lynn: Street, Stocker, Yong, Watson, Fryatt, Spriggs (Quigley), Bell, Bridges (Mulready), Frew, Thomson, Jones (Ramm). Unused sub: Pearson

Stourbridge 3 King's Lynn Town 0|
Saturday 13th December
Lynn's league record against Stourbridge was not too impressive going into this game and this result did little to improve it as they failed to score for the eighth time at Amblecote.
The preparations were not helped with Ryan Fryatt being unwell on the trip and having to take a place on the bench and Dan Quigley not arriving at the ground.
Things got worse when the Glassboys went ahead on seven minutes:
Will Richards, the home number 5, eluded his marker in the penalty area to get on the end of George Bowerman's corner to score via the body of Alex Street.
Lynn had plenty of possession but had little show for it in terms of efforts on goal, perhaps missing the aerial power of the suspended Gregg Smith.
Jackson Ramm and Michael Frew had the best of Lynn's first half efforts
but in stoppage time the hosts went further ahead Bowerman being on hand to get the wrong side of Jordan Yong and round Street to score to give the hoists a 2-0 margin at the break.
Stourbridge completed the scoring on 63 minutes through Josh Morgan-Parker who got the better of Henry Eze to lob Street from ten yards.
Lynn tried to get a consolation with a David Bell long range effort being tipped away and Steve Spriggs shooting over from the resulting corner.
Stourbridge: Coleman, Morgan-Parker, Brown (Till 86), Morris, Richards, Geohaghon, Haynes (Ramsey-Dickson 70), Broadhurst, Bowerman (Benbow 78), Canavan, Knight. Subs: Benbow, Till, Ramsey-Dickson, Smikle, Fitzpatrick.. Scorer: Richards 7, Bowerman 45+2, Morgan-Parker 63
Lynn: Street, Ramm, Yong, Watson (Mulready 70), Eze, Spriggs (Stocker), Bell, Bridges, Frew, Thomson, Jones. Subs: Stocker, Mulready, Fryatt. Booked: Jones
Lynn Reserves moved up to sixth in the league table with a 1-0 victory over Debenham LC thanks to a Nathan Daw goal just after the quarter hour mark.
Lynn: Pearson, Palmer, McLeish, Burch, Ward, White, Biles, Stannard, Frohawk, Daw, McQuaid. Subs: Dougal, Setchell, Colman.
Whitby Town 2 King's Lynn Town 2|
Saturday 6th December
Not for the first time this season, Lynn managed to comeback despite being reduced to ten men.
With a strong wind against them, Lynn found themselves under pressure for most of the first half and were fortunate to be trailing by just the one goal at the break.
In the first minute the home number 10 Steve Snaith hit the bar with Alex Street well beaten and on ten minutes Snaith was grounded by
Henry Eze who, as last man, was red carded for the second time this season.
Fortunately for Lynn Dave McTiernan saw his penalty saved by Alex Street.
Street was again the saviour on the quarter hour when he somehow managed to beat out a Matthew Brown effort.
Brown was not to be denied and on 38 minutes he was in the right place to receive a deflected ball off Ross Watson's head to tap in.
Lynn got off to a great The second half saw Lynn off to a great start with Michael Frew scoring on 49 minutes with lob on the half-volley
having been set up by Gregg Smith.
On 62 minutes the Seasiders were back in front when McTiernan put in a curling shot that gave Street no chance.
Lynn introduced leading scorer George Thomson and he got the all important equaliser with virtually his first touch when, on the 89th minute, prodded home a loose ball
to earn Lynn a point and notch his 20th goal of the season.
Whitby: Bland, Hassan, Robinson, Pell, King, McTiernan, M Brown, Hopson, Snaith, J Brown, Shepherd. Subs: Mason, Burgess, Doran, Waters, Williams. Scorer: M Brown 38 , McTiernan 64
