Lynn 2 Gainsborough Trinity 2
Not for the first time this season, Lynn squandered a two goal lead and thus preserved the unwanted statistics of not taking more than one point from a team above them in the league and have now gone seven league games without a win.Mark Camm with presentation marking 250 first team appearances
Although Lynn took the lead on nine minutes when Luke Graham headed home from a Joe Francis free kick after Michael Frew had been fouled, the visitors had already gone close with a couple of corners - one of which saw a shot blocked on the line.
That was the story of the first half - Lynn looking quick going forward - particularly through Francis on the left - but occasionally making themselves problems at the back.
On 27 minutes Francis broke down the left but his cross went behind the Lynn attack but four minutes later he went for goal and found it with a shot from the edge of the box.
There was little indication of what was to come in the second half as Lynn looked reasonably comfortable until a mistake by Scott Howie let Gainsborough back into the match. A shot from the Lynn left went through his hands and squirmed under his body and Colin Marrison had an easy finish.
This gave the visitors heart and Lynn were on the ropes - the midfield falling back and their passing went astray. It was no surprise when Gainsborough drew level through Lewis McMahon seven minutes from time after a goalmouth scramble.

King's Lynn 1 AFC Telford 1
Lynn got a deserved point and might have claimed all three but for some important saves from visiting keeper Young in a niggly game.
There was little goalmouth action in the first half - the best chance falling to Lynn on 41 minutes when Joachim's header from a Smith free kick was tipped over by Young.
Lynn dominated the early stages of the second half with Jack Defty forcing Young into another fine save.
Telford's best chance fell to Carey-Bertram but he blazed over from six yards with only Howie to beat.
When Telford took the lead on 80 minutes it looked to be rough justice for Lynn. Andy Brown bundled the ball home with his knee from close range. With four minutes remaining in a game littered with free kicks, Defty was fouled and the free kick eventually fell to substitute Turner at the far post whose push-back was put into the net by Graham from two yards.
Lynn: Howie, Graham, Camm, Thomas, Crane, Smith, Fisk, Mitchell (Turner 68), Frew, Joachim, Francis (Defty 10). Subs (not used): Peters, Weaver, Murray. Booked: Smith. Att: 932

Elsewhere Lynn Reserves reached the semi-final of the Norfolk Senior Cup with a 2-0 win at Loddon, Rory Harper scoring both goals. The draw for the semi-final takes place on BBC Radio Norfolk this Friday evening with the semi-final being played on Saturday 7 February.

Farsley Celtic 1 King's Lynn 1
A scrambled injury time goal denied Lynn victory at Farsley.Andrew Fisk and Gavin Hurren celebrate
In an even first half Lynn possibly had the better of the chances - Michael Frew possibly getting the best on 36 minutes but mis-cueing his effort.
Lynn, however, took a deserved lead on 76 minutes when first Julian Joachim and then Frew saw shots blocked before the ball fell to Andrew Fisk who scored with a hard, low drive from 15 yards.
The home side fought back and just as it looked as if Lynn would grab the point a stoppage time melee in the Lynn goalmouth resulted in substitute Scott Broughton getting the final touch as the ball was forced home.
Lynn continue with the record of not having beaten a team above them in the league or losing to a team below. The latter record will be tested next Saturday when Blyth Spartans, without an away win in the league but a good FA Cup run behind them, visit The Walks.
Lynn: Murray, Graham, Chapman, Thomas, Crane, Camm, Fisk, Hurren, Frew, Joachim, Smith (Francis). Unused Subs: Weaver, Kelly, Dwyer, Howie

Elsewhere a goal in each half from Osborn and Nicholls saw Lynn Reserves to a 2-0 win against Woodbridge Town and reach their highest league position of the season. At Marlingford, Lynn A progressed to the semi-final of the Norfolk Junior Cup with a 2-1 win.

One In - One Out
Ben Sedgemore departs
This morning mid-fielder Ben Sedgemore has been released by the club. We wish to thank Ben for all of his efforts whilst with us at The Walks and we wish him well for the future.
Andy Johnson arrives
Lynn have signed former Norwich City, Nottingham Forest, Leicester and West Brom midfielder Andy Johnson.
A former England Youth international Johnson, 34, joined Norwich as a trainee and captained the Youth side going on to make his first team debut against Sheffield Wednesday in April 1992.
In the years that followed he made a total of seventy-five appearances for the Canaries, scoring 14 goals.
July 1997 saw a transfer to Nottingham Forest for £2.2 million and it was while with them he made his international debut for Wales (being eligible via a Welsh grandmother).
In August 2001 financial problems at The City Ground resulted in all the Forest players being transfer listed and Johnson eventually moved to West Bromwich for a £200,000 fee in September 2001 having made a total of 128 appearances for Forest.
The following seasons saw the Baggies promoted, relegated and once more regain Premiership status during which time Johnson made 143 appearances scoring 8 goals.
June 2006 saw Johnson sign for Leicester City where he stayed until the following May having made 21 appearances, scoring once.
Johnson then signed for Championship side Barnsley in June 2007 where he stayed until his release in January 2009 having taken part in five games - his last first team appearance being in September 2007.
Johnson held talks with Blue Square Premier outfits Kidderminster and Rushden & Diamonds before opting to link up again with Lynn manager Keith Webb.
The club wishes to thank Neil Featherby and Sportslink in their assistance in completing this deal.

King's Lynn 2 Blyth Spartans 3
"Dire" and "Abysmal" were words used by manager Keith Webb following this defeat.
Even the magic of a Jack Defty goal could not salvage a point as Lynn conceded three goals before deciding to show anything like a competitive edge in this game.
Lynn had one shot on target in the first half - that coming from Julian Joachim and going straight to the keeper's arms.
One effort hoisted into the area by Crane hit the post but Frew put his chance well over.
Blyth should have taken an early lead when Webster was put clean through but with the goal at his mercy a poor finish went high over Murray's crossbar.
It was no surprise when then visitors took the lead on 16 minutes. A free-kick conceded by Graham resulted in Pell heading home.
Lynn did seem to come more into the game as the first half progressed but when a poor pass from Smith to Chapman resulted in the latter slipping, the way was open for Walton to add a second.
Lynn introduced Jack Defty at half time with Michael Frew taking the right side in place of Andrew Fisk.
Lynn looked more of a force going forward but on 53 minutes they were 3-0 down. Dale crossed low on the Lynn right to give Walton an easy side foot home.
Lynn pulled a goal back on 63 minutes when a Frew corner came back to him and his cross found the head of Jack Defty.
Two minutes later and it was 3-2. Once again Jack Defty was involved - setting up Joachim who took his chance well.
At long last Blyth were on the ropes but Lynn could not force the equaliser and the visitors weathered the storm.
Frustration took over and Crane was sent off in the final minutes after retaliating having been fouled by Pell.
The performance and result somewhat overshadowed the debut of Andy Johnson who showed some good touches - and these will be needed as Lynn face the top two teams in the next week.
Lynn: Murray, Graham, Chapman (Francis), Thomas, Crane, Hurren (Mitchell), Fisk (J Defty), Johnson, Frew, Joachim, Smith. Unused Subs: Camm, Howie. Booked: Thomas, Smith, Francis, Mitchell. Sent off Crane. Attendance 1041.
Greg Crane will be suspended for four matches which will mean him missing the games against Solihull, Southport, Redditch and Harrogate.

Elsewhere Lynn Reserves got a useful point at Kirkley and Pakefield - by all accounts Kirkley's first goalless home draw since they entered the league five years ago.
Lynn: Rix, C Defty, Bush, Harvey, Spittlehouse, Leggett, Kelly, Setchell, Dwyer, Harper, Osborn. Subs: Nicholls, Deadman, Fiddy, Gilchrist, Norris
Lynn A progressed in the League Cup with a 3-2 win over Sandingham, scorers McCarthy, Carrick and Somerton.

Tuesday 27th JanuaryClick for Lynn News Match Report
Tamworth 2 Lynn 0
Lynn had lost seven of their last eight visits to and had only won four of their 24 games at The Lamb.
With Tamworth top of the league and Lynn having not won a league game since 8th November this always looked to be a tough encounter.
So it proved to be with Tamworth being the first side to complete a Conference North double over Lynn.
The home side took the lead on nine minutes when Sheldon's 20 yard free kick found the top corner of the net after Ben Chapman was adjudged to have fouled Pritchard.
Tamworth made sure of the points in the final minute when ex-West Brom player Stuart Nicholson scored on his debut after Sheridan's effort had come back off the bar.
Lynn's best chance was probably just after half time when Frew's free kicks caused a degree of trouble - his second finding the head of Thomas but his close range effort was tipped around the post.
Things get no easier for The Linnets, on Saturday they entertain Gateshead - the division's leading goalscorers!

King's Lynn 2 Gateshead 0
Lynn's recorded their first win of 2009 and it was deserved as they rarely allowed the division's hot-shots a glimpse of goal.
A goalless first half saw Lynn with the better of the goalmouth action. Julian Joachim put over when under pressure and Michael Frew had a good opportunity when presented with a choice of shooting or setting up Jack Defty - and the resultant kick was neither.
Then Jack Defty had a header that went just over.
Gateshead were quick on the break - many of these starting with long throws from 'keeper Paul Musselwhite. Lynn, however, with Mark Peters back in defence for the first time since October, gave the division's leading scorers few chances.
The second half saw more of the same with Lynn showing more passion than against Blyth Spartans the previous week.
The opening goal, on 56 minutes, came from Frew on Lynn's left with the ball first glancing off the head of one Gateshead defender and finding that of a second, Matt Hocking, who put the ball just inside the post.
Gateshead came more into the game and for a time Lynn seemed unable to
their lines - each
ance coming straight back to them, but Lynn weathered the storm.
Musslewhite stopped Lynn going further ahead when he got a hand to Peters close range header but
Lynn made sure of the points on 83 minutes - Michael Frew's free kick fell toward the near post and Luke Graham was the first to react and prod home.
Lynn: Murray, Graham, Chapman, Peters, Thomas, Camm, Frew, Johnson, Defty, Joachim, Mitchell. Subs (not used): Hurren, Smith, Francis, Fisk, Howie. Booked: Mitchell. Att: 966
Elsewhere Lynn Reserves went down 4-2 at Harwich & Parkeston. Rory Harper's 8th minute goal gave Lynn an ideal start but everything changed midway through the second half. Darren Bethell scored the first of his three goals with a over-head kick and then Head's cross was deflected into the Lynn net by Kevin Leggett. Bethell scored his second when Leggett's back header fell short but Lynn pulled a goal back through Kyle Nicholls. Two minutes from time Bethell completed his hat-trick from the spot after a penalty was given for hands.
Lynn A won 7-0 at Terrington, scorers Liam Somerton 3, Rob Carrick 3 and Jordan Penty.
Steve Norris was presented with his England squad number last night at a formal dinner hosted by the Chairman of the England Schools FA. The pleasing news is that he has been awarded the honour of the No.1 shirt which he will keep all season.
Steven's reserve, who gets the No.17 squad number, will be Tom Pass who is on the first team books at Blue Square Premier side Forest Green Rovers. Another testament to Steven's quality!

Lynn 0 Southport 0
Despite the snows of Thursday evening the game went ahead - all credit to those volunteers who helped ready the ground this morning.
For the third time in four meetings at The Walks Lynn and Southport fought out a goalless draw.
It was a fair result. Lynn had the better of the first half chances. Jack Defty's volley on nine minutes was denied by a finger tip save from Southport 'keeper Tony McMillan. The first twenty minutes belonged to Lynn but then the Sandgrounders began to settle but Robbie Booth's header went straight into the arms of Rob Murray.
Further chances fell to Scott Mitchell and Julian Joachim but they were denied by McMillan and Shaun Gray respectively. Just before half-time Steven Daly spurned a good chance for the visitors when he blazed over from six yards.
Second half chances were at a premium. Joachim took adavantage of a miscued goal kick but it went straight at McMillan whilst Ben Chapman headed an Earl Davis' header off the line on 78 minutes as the visitors began to apply pressure.
Rob Murray got a hand to deny a Mark Duffy free kick whilst Mitchell picked up a loose ball and burst through but fired over with just the 'keeper to beat.
Lynn: Murray, Graham, Chapman, Peters, Thomas, Camm, Frew (Francis 60), Johnson, Defty, Joachim, Mitchell. Subs (not used): Hurren, Smith, Fisk, Howie. Booked: Chapman, Frew. Att: 972

Redditch United 1 King's Lynn 2
Two goals from Jack Defty gave Lynn their first away league win since early November.
On five minutes Michael Frew was brought down in the penalty area by fullback Charlton and Jack Defty scored from the spot.
On 12 minutes Lynn added a second. Home 'keeper Lewis handled outside the area in a bid to stop a charge from Julian Joachim and from Frew's free-kick Jack Defty headed home at the back post.
In a disappointing second half the home side pulled a goal back on 78 minutes from the penalty spot - Beswick scoring after Thomas had pulled down Smith.
Redditch were reduced to ten men after Robinson was dismissed after an altercation with Thomas.
Lynn: Murray, Graham, Chapman, Peters, Thomas, Camm, Frew, Johnson, J Defty, Joachim, Mitchell (Smith). Unused Subs: Hurren, Fisk, Francis, Howie. Att: 332
Lynn Reserves' biggest gate of the season saw them take on League leaders Lowestoft Town.
Two goals in the opening seven minutes made it look as though The Trawlerman would be on target for a similar scoreline to that dealt out when Lynn visited Crown Meadow.
On two minutes Russell Stock fed Gary McGee who slipped the ball past home keeper Tom Rix.
And, in a similar move five minutes later, ex-Linnet Stock repeated the act.
It could have been three but Tom Rix produced the save of the season to tip Richard Woodrow's shot onto the crossbar.
Lynn fought back and on 25 minutes Charlie Defty's left footed shot from 12 yards made it 2-1.
Two further saves from Tom Rix denied Lowestoft in the second half but it was a good performance from Lynn given the disastrous start.
Lynn A booked a place in the Final of the Norfolk Junior Cup at Carrow Road with a 4-2 win over Gorleston Reserves.
They meet Norwich St John's of the Anglian Combination Division Two in the final on 24 March.

King's Lynn 2 Harrogate Town 3
Lynn's ability to lose a two goal lead once again showed itself as their mini-revival ended with Harrogate completing the double.
The first half offered little in terms of goalmouth action - Scott Mitchell's 13th minute header from Michael Frew's corner was hacked off the line was one of the few chances that was on target.
Whilst Lynn might have claimed to have shaded the first period the opening 15 minutes of the second half belonged to Harrogate and it was against the run of play when Lynn took the lead.
Jack Defty put the ball behind the Harrogate defence and Frew ran on to it - his first shot was stopped by Harrogate keeper Hedge but Frew was the first to regain his composure to roll the ball home.
Five minutes later Joe Francis extended Lynn's lead. Francis made progress down Lynn's left flank and after a quick pass to Mitchell was on hand to score left-footed from eight yards.
Minutes later Francis had the opportunity to put the game beyond doubt but shot into the side-netting.
Harrogate pulled a goal back on 74 minutes - James Dean out-muscling Peters to score from close range.
Two minutes later the visitors were level - Nathan Peate curling a free kick from the edge of the box over the two-man wall and to the far side of Rob Murray's goal.
An off the ball incident spotted by the referee's assistant resulted in Dean being sent off but the reduced numbers did not stop the visitors.
Richard Marshall got the winner from eight yards with five minutes remaining.
Lynn gave a late debut to Dominic Dwyer who did have time to get a stinging shot on target but it went straight to the keeper as the shell shocked Linnets fell to their fourth home league defeat of the season.
Lynn: Murray, Graham, Chapman (Dwyer 88), Peters, Thomas, Camm, Frew, Johnson, Defty, Francis, Mitchell. Subs not used: Hurren, Smith, Fisk, Howie. Booked: Defty, Chapman, Peters. Goals: Frew (62), Francis (67)
Lynn Reserves won the local derby against Wisbech. Lynn took the lead on two minutes through Rory Harper and this was doubled ten minutes before half time by Ross Kelly. Three minutes later an own goal brought Wisbech back into the game.
An injury to Wisbech keeper Chris Horton resulted in him being taken to Lynn hospital. The King's Lynn FC wishes him a speedy recovery.

Wednesday 25th February
Gavin Hurren Departs
Gavin Hurren has left the club and joined Conference National outfit Crawley Town. Hurren was signed by the Linnets from Mansfield Town in January and made just two starts.

Lynn 0 Hucknall 0
Lynn are still looking to complete their first Conference North double as strugglers Hucknall Town claimed a point in a game low on entertainment and scoring chances.
In a dull first half the highlights were a Joe Francis free kick which required a save from visiting 'keeper Lindley.
It was the visitors, however, who had the most noteworthy of the first half chances. Wilson volleyed over on the half hour and then Ricketts headed over after Smith had lost possession.
An effort from Bacon struck Howie's legs and the follow-up was scrambled away for a corner as the visitors looked most likely (if any) to score.
The second half was almost as dire as the first - although it was Lynn who had slightly the more chances but Hucknall came nearest to scoring.
For Lynn, Adam Smith was just wide of the post and Frew's run down the right wing ended with his cross-shot going over.
Francis' diving header went wide and Jack Defty had an effort blocked by Meikle almost on the line.
For Hucknall, Bacon was denied by Howie who then went on to stop an effort by Ricketts.
The best save of the game came from Scott Howie who tipped Wilson's goal bound curling shot away for a corner.
The introduction of Dom Dwyer for Lynn came as a breath of fresh air and he caused problems in the Hucknall defence setting up Jack Defty who shot over and then putting in a left foot effort which was held by the keeper.
Lynn: Howie, Graham, Smith, Peters, Thomas, Camm (Kelly 82), Frew (Dwyer 75), Johnson, J Defty, Francis, Mitchell (Fisk 68). Unused subs: C Defty, Murray.

Lynn Reserves were without a game whilst Lynn A won 2-1 against Lynn Docklands.

Wednesday 4th March
Club Statement
The club last night had a
-the-air meeting with the players to discuss the club's well documented current financial difficulties.
Back pay and wages going forward were the sole topic: some players who are already talking to other clubs have indicated that they wish to leave whilst others such as captain Andy Johnson and defender Mark Peters have stated that they will stand by the club whilst the directors continue to talk to other prospective investors.
The club wishes to thank those players for their understanding and recognition of the current financial climate and dedication to King's Lynn Football Club.
The club would also like to thank those that leave for their past efforts.
Lynn Reserves ended at the wrong end of a nine goal thriller in this Norfolk Senior Cup final rehearsal. Three goals down in 30 minutes Lynn pulled a goal back through Kyle Nicholls before Andy Key restored the three goal margin early in the second half - completing his hat-trick. Lynn never gave up and two further goals from Nicholls and a Rory Harper free-kick making it four made for an exciting finish.
Thursday 5th March
Kris Renton arrives on loan
Although Lynn no longer have the services of Ben Chapman and Joe Francis to call on, joining the squad will be Norwich striker Kris Renton on an initial month loan.
The 18 year old Scottish striker scored a stunning goal against the Linnets in a pre season friendly at the Walks and is a highly rated member of the Carrow Road squad. King's Lynn Football Club wishes to place on record its great thanks to Norwich City Football Club and their manager Mr Bryan Gunn in their help in bringing Kris to the Walks. Norwich City were very keen to assist us on this matter and we greatly appreciate their assistance in completing negotiations swiftly. All of the necessary paperwork has now been completed and Kris will be in Keith Webb's squad for Saturday's trip to AFC Telford.

Renton has scored nine goals in 11 academy starts for Norwich this season. The Scot was the youngest-ever Norwich debutant when he appeared as a substitute for the Canaries' first team at Leicester in 2007. He signed a two-year professional contract with The Canaries in the summer of 2008.

Friday 6th March
Michael Frew Departs
The club wishes to announce the departure from the club of Michael Frew.
Michael has received a substantial offer from another club which he felt, at this time in his career, was too good to turn down. We thank Michael for all of his past efforts for the club over the last three seasons and we wish him well for the future.

AFC Telford 1 Lynn 1
Lynn got a point against high-flying AFC Telford in what was a drab affair.
Both clubs had to make changes to their line-ups at relatively short notice - Lynn losing two players during the week and Michael Frew on Friday whilst Telford were without leading scorer Terry Fearns.
In a forgettable first half neither side managed a worthwhile shot on target, a Carl Rodgers effort for the home side just before half-time being the closest.
The home side increased the pressure in the second half and when Lynn took the lead it was against the run of play.
A Telford corner on 81 minutes resulted in a scramble in the away goal but Lynn
ed and Jack Defty set up substitute Dominic Dwyer to break free of the home defence and give Lynn the lead.
Lynn's first every away victory in 11 games against Telford was denied, however, when Danny Carey-Bertram equalised in stoppage time from close range.

Lynn Reserves 1 Mildenhall 3
A second half penalty miss from Rory Harper helped Mildenhall to their first win in six matches.
The visitors took the lead when ex-Linnet Stephen Spriggs' cross was eventually turned in by Tom Youngs.
Lynn drew level on 15 minutes through Kyle Nicholls.
Rory Harper was brought down by Matty Paynter at the beginning of the second half but the keeper, making his debut, made amends from the spot kick.
Mildenhall took the lead just past the hour - Spriggs again crossing with John Sands scoring from close range.
On 75 minutes Sands completed the scoring after a long run into the Lynn half.
Lynn A won 3-1 against Narborough to stay second in the league, one point behind leaders Heacham with a game in hand.

Solihull Moors 1 Lynn 1
It isn't that Lynn concede more goals in the last fifteen minutes of the game than at any other time - it is just that they seem to have the ability to do it when the scores are close.
In six games which have resulted in draws this season, Lynn have conceded in the last quarter hour.
And so it was at Solihull. Lynn had taken a 55th minute lead through Bradley Thomas who back healed his first league goal of the season after the home defence had failed to
an Adam Smith free kick.
Then, for the second consecutive match, Lynn conceded in time added on, Solihull substitute James McPike scoring on the counter attack.
Lynn, without Jack Defty (who was working away), had the better of the goalless first half chances with Dominic Dwyer being denied by the home keeper and Andy Johnson grazing the post.
Lynn continue to look for their first Conference North double with Vauxhall Motors (who they play for the first time on Saturday) and Hyde United being their only remaining chances.
This was Lynn's seventeenth draw of the season, currently one less than they managed in their first season of Northern Premier League football back in 1980-81.
With nine matches Conference North matches remaining it looks likely that this record will be broken.

Lynn 1 Vauxhall Motors 1
Lynn have conceded goals in the last fifteen minutes of five of the last six matches - only against Redditch did they manage to hang on to all three points.Vauxhall Motors' stoppage time equaliser - photo Tim Smith
Another record they might prefer not to have is that they have equalled the number of drawn games they achieved when they made their Northern Premier League debut - just one more and it will be a new record, and on today's performance that draw should not be long coming.
This was a match that had little to offer. Two virtually identically goals: the first on 30 minutes when Adam Smith took a free kick and Dom Dwyer got his head to it.
Then into stoppage time Tom Hannigan headed home from another free kick - this time the post helping the ball into the net.
There were a few bright points - Renton's running and his back-heel to set up Scott Mitchell for a run, Dom Dwyer's energy, and his constant threat to the visiting defence.
Kris Renton had a goal disallowed on 57 minutes for a hand ball in the build-up but neither goalkeeper made a serious save all afternoon.
Next up is Hyde United - Lynn's last chance of a Conference North double but against a team fighting relegation - another draw anyone?
Lynn: Howie, Graham, Smith, Peters, Thomas, Camm, Mitchell (C Defty 80), Johnson, Renton (Crane 87), Dwyer, J Defty (Kelly 56). Sub (not used): Murray. Booked: Dwyer
A Robert Carrick goal was not enough for Lynn Reserves who went down 1-3 at Tiptree United whilst Lynn A made League Cup progress with a 2-0 win over Lynn Docklands.

Hyde United 0 King's Lynn 1
Lynn completed their first Conference North double with an injury time goal from Andrew Fisk.
Most of Lynn's first half chances came from Adam Smith corners. Mark Peters had a header
ed off the line whilst Thomas saw his header hitting Kris Renton and being deflected away.
Dominic Dwyer again looked dangerous, his best first half effort coming just before half-time when, through on goal, he was bravely denied by home 'keeper Elliot Bernstien.
Hyde had their chances with Farrell Kilbane heading over the bar and Tom Manship missing a good chance when delaying his shot.
Just before half-time Chris Simm's low shot was saved by Howie.
Berstein was again on hand early in the second half - thus time denying Scott Mitchell.
Hyde began to apply pressure but many of their shots were off target. When their accuracy improved Lynn's defence blocked their efforts.
Johnson's 30 yarder forced a good save from Bernstein whilst Howie was twice called upon to keep out the efforts of Daniel Douglas-Pringle
Then came the decisive goal. Dwyer squared the ball to Mitchell whose shot was blocked - but it fell to Andrew Fisk to shoot home from 10 yards.

Lynn Reserves 0 CRC 1
A 12th minute goal was enough to settle the destination of the league points. It was no surprise when it came as the Reserves had already had two escapes from attacks down their left flank. The remainder of the first half belonged to Lynn but they were unable to penetrate the visitor's defence whilst CRC still looked dangerous on the break.
The second half was an even affair with both sides having chnaces.
Lynn: Norris, Gilchrist, Setchell (Deadman), Harvey, Hyde, Leggett, Fell (Bush), Watts-Sturrock, Harper, Rudd (Carrick), Nicholls. Unused subs: Fiddy, Rix. Booked: Harvey.

Norfolk Junior Cup Final
Lynn A lose in penalty shoot-out
Lynn's A team lost out in a thrilling Junior Cup Final at Carrow Road. With no goals in normal time Lynn had a chance to take the lead in the first minute of extra time when Glen Drawbridge was one-on-one with the keeper - but the keeper saved. Then in the first minute of extra time Graham Carr outpaced Lee Hyde and put the ball past Ally McAnally. It looked all over for Lynn but Glen Drawbridge forced the match to penalties in time added on.
With penalties standing at 2-2 Lynn saw their spot kick saved and they went on to lose 4-3.
The match itself had been one which ebbed and flowed. St John's hit the post, Lynn had a shot turned onto the post. Ally McAnally pulled of some good save, particularly in first half stoppage time, and his counterpart did likewise on a number of occasions.

Martin Rudd got a consolation for Lynn in the closing stages - heading home from close range after Fisk had guided Kelly's corner towards him.

King's Lynn 1 Stalybridge Celtic 0
It all looked a little too familiar . . . Lynn leading 1-0 and into time added on.
Stalybridge won a free kick in a very useful central position just outside the box. It all looked part of a script.
Torpey struck, Howie dived but was beaten - but the ball hit the upright.
Lynn went down the other end and tried to use up the seconds remaining. Jack Defty, trying to hold the ball in the box, was fouled and took the penalty himself - but his attempted chip went over the bar. It was the last kick of the game and Lynn's record is now just one defeat in ten games.
The first half belonged to the visitors and Scott Howie made important stops from a Lee Ellingtyon free kick and a long range effort from Hardicre.
Lynn's first half attacks often ended with an offside flag - the best of their attempts being a Jack Defty shot which went wide.
The second half began with the early exchanges even. Then on 59 minutes Lynn replaced Kris Renton with Julian Joachim and with three minutes Lynn were in front.
A mistake by Celtic centre-half Bowler allowed Joachim to race through to chip the ball over the advancing Phillips.
A chance to double the score came when Hardicre's error allowed Joachim to break through into a one-on-one situation with the keeper but he put the ball just too much in front of him and Phillips dived.
Howie was again Lynn's saviour when he denied Ellington and with time added on arriving Lynn fan's wondered what to expect. But this time, apart from Defty's last kick, they were not disappointed.

The all-important goal came on 35 minutes - Scott Howie being wrong-footed by a deflection which saw Alex Brown's fierce shot find the net.
The home side had the better of the second half whilst, for Lynn, the best chances fell to Andy Johnson and Scott Mitchell.

Fleetwood Town 3 King's Lynn 0
Statistics can be manipulated to prove just about anything. In the space of week Lynn have gone from a six match unbeaten run to having scored one goal in three outings. You have to go back nine matches to find Lynn scoring two goals in the same game - and even then they lost.
Sean Clancy was Lynn's undoing with a hat-trick and but for the heroics of Scott Howie the margin could have been greater. Lynn's best chance came some 15 minutes before the end when Jack Defty's effort was tipped over the bar.
Lynn: Howie, Graham, Smith, Peters, Thomas, Camm, Mitchell (Dwyer), Johnson, J Defty, Renton (Joachim), Fisk (Kelly). Unused Subs: Crane, Murray. Booked: Thomas.
Lynn Reserves 1 Haverhill Rovers 0
Lynn bagged the points in this battle with bottom placed Haverhill but the visitors could feel aggrieved that they did not get at least a point.
The opening 45 minutes lacked goalmouth action with Lynn producing one effort - a Bush shot that was pushed away for corner - whilst Haverhill's only effort of note was headed wide of the post. In first half stoppage time Charlie Defty headed a free kick home from close range to give Lynn a lead they deserved for their possession.
Haverhill were more of a threat in the second half - twice Lynn were saved by the bar and once by McAnally's legs.
Lynn: McAnally, Harvey, Bush, Setchell, Gilchrist, C Defty, Fell (Deadman 83), Carrick, Livotti (Hyde 65), Rudd (Harper 70), Nicholls.

Dom Dwyer went closest for Lynn in injury time but Liam Jones made a good save.

King's Lynn 0 Alfreton Town 4
Lynn slumped to the biggest home league defeat of the season against a strong Alfreton side.
Greg Crane, making his 99th appearance, was selected in a bid to blunt the Alfreton attack that had only lost twice in away league games this season.
It was the visitors who had the better of the first half - Lynn's one effort coming from Jack Defty who, having forced a mistake from the visiting defence, put in a weak shot.
On thirty minutes a corner to the far post found Howell whose header came of the upright and fell to McFadzean who scored through a ruck of players.
Despite conceding three second half goals Lynn were more into the game after the interval.
Two Lynn corners were followed by an Adam Smith free kick which forced Dickinson into a diving save.
Alfreton were awarded a penalty after Peters had fouled by Scott Howie saved Marples' kick.
On 63 minutes Alfreton increased their lead following a foul by Camm. Ross scoring direct from the free kick from some 20 yards.
A strong Kelly free kick for Lynn beat the visiting keeper but McFady was on the goalline to
.
Lynn then won a penalty for a push on Defty but Camm's spot kick was easily saved.
On seventy minutes Alfreton went further ahead - Curtis's shot going through the legs of Peters and Howie.
Lynn looked for a consolation but the best they could manage was an header from Defty that went straight into the keeper's hands.
On 80 minutes Lynn's misery was complete when Clayton raced through a static Lynn defence to put the ball past Howie.

Hinckley United 1 King's Lynn 0
Some 388 minutes have now passed since Lynn's last goal. Some might point to the loss of Michael Frew and Joe Francis for the reason why the goal supply has dwindled to nothing in the last four games. This may be true but in the last time the duo did play Lynn failed to score - and that was against the now relegated Hucknall.
The only goal for Hinckley came from the head of Mark Camm when attempting to defend a 23 minute Connor Franklin corner.
There was little seen of the Lynn attack and Hinckley might have added to their tally but for Scott Howie and the woodwork.
Having equalled the four match goalless run at the start of the 1992-93 season the next unwanted target is the six match goalless run of 1988 - with matches against Workington and Vauxhall Motors to come it is a record that could be matched.
Going back to our Northern Premier League days, Workington have never won in their three visits to The Walks - hopefully Lynn can continue that run on Saturday.

King's Lynn 1 Workington 3
Lynn's home league campaign ended in disappointment.
Bradley Thomas failed a late fitness test whilst Andy Johnson, who passed one, had to be withdrawn at half-time.
Workington had the better of the first half chances and it was no surprise when they took a 35th minute when an error by Greg Crane allowed Andy Cook to take advantage and score from 12 yards.
The Reds went further ahead on 55 minutes when Mark Camm was dispossessed and Jonny Wright set up Cook for his second goal.
Lynn did improve slightly at the beginning of the second half with Jack Defty firing over.
On seventy minutes Workington added their third. Substitute Ruttledge, unmarked, turned in Hardman's cross.
Lynn introduced Dominic Dwyer and he began to make an impact. Lynn won more corners in a 15 minute spell than they had throughout the rest of the game and Collin in the Reds' goal began to look suspect.
First he dropped the ball to give Fisk a close range shot but the keeper recovered to block his shot.
Then, on 81 minutes, a speculative cross from Adam Smith was spilled by Collins and Jack Defty was on hand to score from close range.
For the first time in the match Lynn looked as if the wanted to compete with shots from Camm and Dwyer being blocked and then Jack Defty headed wide.

At this moment in time this is something regrettably and very disappointingly I cannot do. My business Sportlink has recently relocated which has taken up a considerable amount of time and along with all my other interests, especially the 3 boxers who I am involved with that have championship fights this year, for that I have to be fully committed to helping them in their quests.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Walks and if nothing else what an experience during an eventful few months.
"Going forward I wish Carl Heggs and Andy Johnson well in their new roles at the club especially having been instrumental in bringing Andy to the club in the first place.
"I do know that he cannot wait to get started in what is a great opportunity for him.
"I also wish the fans who are truly loyal and certainly patient the very best for the coming season and of course the directors and everyone else at the club particularly Ken Bobbins who for me works tirelessly for a cause that hopefully he will one day be rewarded with.
"I will still get along to as many games as I can and will continue to support the club indefinitely".

Saturday 15th AugustGareth Sheldon,Owen Story and Ryan Beswick celebrate the opening goal
Lynn 1 Stocksbridge PS 3
Lynn's last stint in the Northern Premier League had seen them unbeaten on the opening day of the three seasons they competed in that league.
For the opening minutes of this season's campaign it looked as if that record might be maintained and all the talk and optimism of pre-season was going to be reflected in the result against the division's newcomers who had gained promotion via the play-offs.
On 4 minutes Gareth Sheldon put Lynn ahead from close range following Owen Story's cross from the right.
Any hopes that the visitors might fall apart with the early reverse and the thought of playing one of the pre-season favourites for promotion were short lived and Steels settled and gave warning of what was to come when Jamie Vardy stung the hands of Jason White on 28 minutes.
Ten minutes later the scores were level. Vardy was again the cause of Lynn's woes, easily finding space in the Lynn defence and crossing to Brian Cusworth score.
Lynn might claim to have spent more time in the opposition's half but after the break but few chances were created. Too often the long ball was deployed but not finding its man whilst at the back gaps were created.
When Lynn did get a shot on target it invariably straight at the visiting keeper. Three free kicks for good positions were wasted - two going off target whilst a third was easily saved low to the 'keepers right.
On 54 minutes Andy Ring put Steels ahead after Vardy had again sliced open the defence.
Vardy completed the scoring on 81 minutes leaving Lynn manager Karl Heggs to some up the game as "Shocking".
Lynn: White, Magunda, Murray (Martin 82), Johnson (Smith 58), McAughtrie, Boyce, Story, Lloyd, Sheldon, Birley, Beswick (Green 58). Subs (not used): Webb, Whatsize.

It was a lead that last just two minutes as Hannah levelled. It spurred in the home side and White made a reaction stop to deny Cropper.
The second half started disastrously for Lynn. White denied Ryan Laight's snapshot but from the resultant corner
Haran climbed above Lloyd 10 yards out to head home via the inside of the far post on 53 minutes.
It was Lynn's turn to bounce back and they did that in the following minute, Story latching on to a clearance to score from the 18 yard line.

Lynn 1 Worksop 1

The Linnets continue to look for their first home win of the season following this highly charged encounter against Worksop.
From the start it was fast and furious and the pace and passion seldom relaxed but far too often Lynn were pumping high balls into the Worksop half but getting little reward.
Occasional pieces of individual skill were being were being lost as passes went astray.
Worksop took the lead on 13 minutes with a well worked goal which presented Chris Adam with an easy finish having been set up by Alex Callery.
Prior to that Robinson and Boyce had both had efforts on target as Lynn had the better of possession.
Lynn equalised on 34 minutes with another free kick special from 25 yards.
Three minutes Lynn keeper Jason White collided with Tigers' Andy White and Zak Martin cleared off the line.
White needed attention on his hand and was replaced at half time by Ally McAnally.
Then in the closing minutes of the first half Anthony Robinson attempted to get the ball from grounded Tigers' keeper Jon Kennedy - a challenge which resulted in a 20-man fracas and a lengthy delay as all three officials consulted and Kennedy received attention.
Robinson and Worksop defender Tom Jones were dismissed and a number of yellow cards shown - and it could easily have been more.
The second half saw Lynn have the lion's share of play could not convert this into shots that were on target.
Lynn manager Carl Heggs was sent to the stands after giving the referee's assistant a great deal of earache as the tension remained high.

King's Lynn v Whitby Town
Saturday 29th August
After an even start Lynn began to cause problems for the visitors with their pace down the wings but the best chance fell to Robinson who went close following a Beswick cut-back.
The visitors took the lead on 23 minutes with an excellent goal from Hackworth given debutante Danny Gray no chance as he turned and place the ball in the top left corner of Gay's net.
Lynn still had the best of possession but the best chances fell to Beswick from outside the area and these went high and wide.
The second half continued with the same pattern as the first. Lynn were failing to take advantage of corners which invariably fell to Campbell in the Whitby goal.
Even throw-ins, particularly on the left, were going straight to visiting players whilst Robinson was guilty of being caught offside on numerous occasions.
The goal that Lynn deserved, for their possession, arrived on 55 minutes. Beswick chased a loose ball on the Whitby and crossed for Sheldon to side foot home.
The goal gave Lynn hope but they could not create on target efforts whilst Gay was not tested to any degree. There were claims for a penalty after Lloyd fell in the box with a couple of minutes remaining but if Lynn want to win games they need finish off their chances, not hope that will be gifted them.

Linnets sign striker

Justin Rowe in Sutton Coldfield colours Lynn have signed striker Justin Rowe from Evesham United.
The Birmingham born 26 year old (b. 04/09/1983) has a host of previous clubs including Sutton Coldfield, Gresley Rovers, AFC Telford United, and Hereford United.
Beginning his career with Continental Star he then came to prominence with Grosvenor Park, who he helped to promotion to the Midland Alliance.
A short spell with Hereford United beginning March 2003 was followed by a move to then Conference rivals Telford United in August 2003.
He made eight league appearances that season which also saw a loan spell at Gresley Rovers - a move made permanent in May 2004.
October 2004 saw a move to Sutton Coldfield which saw him score 17 league/league cup goals and then in June 2008 it was reported that he had joined Halesowen Town for a undisclosed five figure fee.
He scored eight times from 29 appearances for the Yeltz before returning to Sutton Coldfield at the beginning of the 2009-10 season.
After three appearances at Coles Lane this season he joined Evesham United in September.

At training in Leicester Thursday evening, Bobby Aisien and Lewis Webb signed contracts that will keep tham at The Walks for the remainder of the season.


Saturday 7 November
Lynn 11 Durham City 0

Lynn recorded their biggest post-war league victory and were just one goal away from equalling the Northern Premier League record as they ran in eleven goals against a young Durham city side.
The margin of victory could have been greater but for some heroics by the Durham 'keeper late on in the game and a period when Lynn took their foot off the pedal having made substitutions.
The goals came at regular intervals in the first half.
The first goal came on eight minutes Owen Story put Lynn in front from ten yards after Gareth Ayers failed to deal with Andy Boyce's deep cross.
Two minutes later Kwesi Appiah headed home Muirhead's free kick.
Two minutes later Carl Palmer powered a header past O'Brien after Story had picked out the midfielder.
Seven minutes later Ben Muirhead hammered home in fine style.
On 23 minutes, four minutes after goal number four, leading scorer Anthony Robinson got in on the act racing onto Appiah's reverse pass before firing past O'Brien.
Goal six arrived on 31 minutes, Kwesi Appiah took advantage of hesitation in the visitor's defence to score having missed an easier chance seconds earlier.
Four minutes before the break Robinson got his second of the afternoon taking advantage of O'Brien's slip.
It as business as usual on the restart Appiah hit the crossbar in the opening minute but Robinson did better on 48 minutes.
Appiah headed home a minute to complete his hat trick and score Lynn's ninth.
Manager Carl Heggs took the opportunity to reshuffle the line-up and it took a while before Lynn scored again.
Justin Rowe on his Linnets debut put Lynn into double figure, the first time since August 1966, on 69 minutes.
This seemed to renew Lynn's appetite and Rowe completed the scoring, although not the chances, 14 minutes from time with a 20-yard volley.
To their credit Durham never game up and their attempts on the Lynn goal were applauded by the home supporters and had it not been for spoiling the Lynn sheet many would have liked to see a consolation goal.
Lynn: Gay, Webb, Rowe-Turner, Palmer, Boyce, Aisien, Story (Smith 56), Magunda, Appiah (Spencer 56), Robinson, Muirhead (Rowe 50). Subs (not used): McAnally, Murray.
Durham: O'Brien, Mounter, Wren, Stevenson, Stoker, Ayers, Watson (Potts 50), Graham, Ayer (James 67), Cutts, Shaw. Subs (not used): Winter.

There was no such luck for Lynn Reserves at Mildenhall. A goal down at half time Jordan Penty equalised for Lynn but the home side ran out 4-1 winners.
Lynn A moved to the top of their league with a 7-0 win over Wisbech United.

Saturday 14 November
Lynn 7 Ossett Town 2

In the 2004-05 season Lynn scored sixteen goals in three games which was very impressive at the time but the victory over Ossett Town made it eighteen goals from two and with Salford City next at the Walks it could be far more.
The demolition of Ossett began in the second minute when Danny Spencer side-footed home.
Ossett then produced one of only two first half opportunities, Lathaniel Rowe-Turner being beaten for speed but the resultant shot going wide of Danny Gay's far post.
Lynn had further chances through Carl Palmer and Owen Story before Story increased the lead on 21 minutes - cleaning up after visiting keeper Liam Sutcliffe denied Andy Boyce's header.
On 40 minutes it was defender-turned-striker Danny Spencer who made it 3-0 with a delightful swerving shot following a free kick into the box which saw Kwesi Appiah provide the flick on.
On 45 minutes Ossett pulled a goal back through Kevin Ryan with their first on-target effort.
Ossett came out in determined mood in the opening minutes of the second half but it did not take long for Lynn to get into their stride.
On 52 minutes Appiah slotted home from close range following a corner and two minutes later Bobby Aisien got his first Lynn goal in a similar manner.
Goal number six from Appiah just after the hour as the swirling rain began to make it difficult for players and fans alike.
Kevin Ryan pulled scored his second of the afternoon with the Lynn defence appearing asleep following treatment to Andy Boyce.
Aisien restored the five goal margin, heading home on 81 minutes, a margin that might have been greater but the woodwork on two occasions and the efforts of Liam Sutciffe in the Ossett goal.
It was a thoroughly deserved Lynn victory with the team not only working for each other and brimming in confidence but also showing signs of putting routines tested in training to good and effective use.
Lynn: Gay, Webb, Rowe - Turner, Palmer, Boyce, Aisien, Story {Murray 90}, Magunda, Appiah , Spencer {Smith 73}, Muirhead{Rose 85}. Subs not used: Heggs, McAnally.
Ossett Town: Sutcliffe, Hay, Fisher {Garland 46}, Clayton, Nettleton, Leight, Grant, Place{Trueman 62}, Ryan, Hardaker,Lee{Hollingdrake 52}. Subs not used: Fradgley, Green.
Booked: Lynn: Magunda. Ossett: Hardaker, Garland.
Referee: I A Dudley {Notts}. Att:812.
There was no goal rush for Lynn Reserves whose defeat at Harwich & Parkeston gave the home side their first league win of the season, lifting them off the bottom of the table.
Harwich's Adam Bloss got the all important goal early in the game.

KLFC Women get tough cup draw

KLFC Women in quarter final of Norfolk & Suffolk Cup
The young Linnets will be taking on their strongest opposition to date since the the squad was formed in 2007.
After successfully coming through the last two rounds the Linnets will take on either Norwich City or Ipswich Town in the quarter finals of the Norfolk & Suffolk Cup.
Norwich City Ladies won the competition last season defeating West Lynn 5-0 in the final.
Ipswich Town won the cup the previous season.
Jess Ibrom (Women's Head Coach) said "The squad has progressed superbly well year on year and to have the opportunity to play against such quality opposition be it Norwich or Ipswich will a fantastic occasion for all concerned.
The current squad has seven players aged 16 years old who have all progressed through the KLCF scheme and the game will provide a good benchmark for the squad.
We will be the underdogs so we have nothing to lose and will certainly be going all out for the win!"


Saturday 21st November
Lynn 1 Salford 0

It might have been the same starting line-up as the team that had scored seven goals against Ossett last Saturday, but this Lynn team was but a shadow of the free scoring slick moving team..
Perhaps it was that Lynn were over confident of defeating a team struggling in a division below, perhaps it was the various financial worries that appear to be coming to the fore, or perhaps it was that the opposition just did not allow Lynn to play their normal game.
Salford belied their lower status and did what most teams do when playing higher league opposition. They challenged, they harried, and they did not allow Lynn time on the ball.
It seemed start alright for Lynn with Kwesi Appiah putting the ball over after a corner in the second minute but a minute later it was Salford who had a corner and from the resultant Mike Flynn shot Lewis Webb cleared off the line.
It was not until 30 minutes later that Lynn had their next shot of note with Appiah shooting over from long range and then wide when just inside the box.
Danny Gay was called into action early in the second half with two important saves as Lynn still failed to find their form.
Manager Carl Heggs introduced himself as substitute on 70 minutes and immediately made an impact but the all important goal did not come until the 85th minute when he combined with Ben Muirhead before seeing his shot blocked by the visiting keeper. Heggs was, however, first to react and put the ball into the net to the great relief of most of the 889 crowd.
There was still time for anxious moments at both ends with Gay making two important saves whilst Heggs was denied at the other end.
So Lynn benefit by £4,000 - a very modest amount considering what the tax man is expecting in the next few days.
Lynn: Gay, Webb, Rowe-Turner, Palmer (Smith 88), Boyce, Aisien, Story, Magunda, Appiah , Spencer {Heggs 70), Muirhead. Subs not used: Murray, Rose, McAnally.
Booked: Rowe-Turner, Story.

Elsewhere two first half goals at Spixworth removed Lynn Reserves from the Norfolk Senior Cup whilst Lynn A progressed in the League Cup defeating second in the table Pott Row.

Wednesday 25th November
KLFC wound up

King's Lynn Football Club have this morning been officially wound up in the High Court. The club has an option of a seven day appeal.

Tuesday 24th November
Lynn 1 Retford 2

The rules for the league cup require eight players from the squad of the previous game to be included. Lynn achieved this with Carl Heggs making the eighth man, although he took a seat in the stand.
Danny Spencer was the only player in the starting line-up who had started against Salford whilst Retford fielded a team thatb was nearer to full strength.
Not surprisingly the visitors started the stronger with Lee Holmes having the best chance in the opening 15 minutes but he put over and then Paul Ellender clipped the bar.
Lynn began to settle with Nelson Morriera causing the visitors problems and Darryl Rose hitting the bar.
On 40 minutes Lee Thompson was adjudged to have pulled back Morreira and Danny Spence scored from the resulting spot kick.
Morriera, however, was not to reappear after half time and the visitors began to get on top - Ally McAnally parried Neil Harvey's piledriver but could do nothing about the 70th minute penalty.
Retford substitiute Harvey tumbled in a back post collision with Spencer and Matthew Gilchrist and Marrison scored from the spot.
Lynn continued to hang on but with extra time looming Stephen Harvey handled Bettney's deep cross and Marrison once agin obliged from the spot.
Lynn: McAnally, Harvey, Spencer, Smith, Gilchrist, Murray, Rose, Fisher (Webb 51), Walsh, Morreira (Penty 95), Wilson. Subs not used: McCarthy, Gay. Goal: Spencer (90)
Retford: Turner, F Smith, Thompson, Ford (Ludlam 81), Ellis, Mender, Bettney, Barwick (55 Smith 68), Thomas, Marrison, Holmes (Harvey 60). Subs (not used): Knapper, Kingston. Goals: Marrison (70, 90) .

That is the first team game at North Ferriby, the Reserves at The Walks against Harwich & Parkestone and the A team at Ingoldisthorpe,
Wednesday 9th December 2009
King's Lynn Football ceased to exist on this day

The following announcement was made.

It is with our deep regret that the club has had to end in this fashion.We have done all we possibly could to find a solution to the problems but unfortunately time was against us. The "cast iron" investor that pulled out just three working days before the court hearing left us no time to redress the situation. In a time of recession it is very difficult task to tempt people or businesses to "invest" in a football club. The only feasible offer on the table unfortunately did not comply with the FA and their decision is final!!!

Thanks to the generosity of a local couple we had raised sufficient funds to pay the tax (three of us had already paid 40k towards the original long standing tax debt) but it would be pointless to pay the tax if provision was not in place to take the club forward.
It should be noted that ALL major decisions both fiscal and otherwise concerning the club were made,agreed and sanctioned by all the Board at any given time and not by any individual person.
Please try and remember some of the many good times over the past few years.Again we are truly sorry that this situation has occurred . We would also like to thank the many people who have assisted and supported us during our time at the club and especially those who have remained supportive over the last difficult months.

Tim Coates and Ken Bobbins
