Lynn bowed out of the league cup at the first hurdle with a 3-1 defeat at Kempston Rovers.
Manager Ian Culverhouse made a number of changes with first starts being given to Liam Fryatt, Thomas McLeish and Eion McQuade while Craig Gillies, Sam Gaughran, Toby Hilliard and Tom Siddons were also included in the starting line-up.
Lynn could have been ahead as early as the sixth minute when Siddons was pulled down in the area by home 'keeper Tom Wyant but Wyant made amends for his actions by making a superb one handed save from Siddons' resulting spot kick.
The Walnuts gave Lynn warning of what was to come when, on 15 minutes, Alex Street did well to tip over Jake Newman's half volley from the edge of the box.
Siddons had the ball in the net a couple of minutes later but it was ruled offside. The home side went ahead on 29 minutes when Nathan Tshikuna set up Newman who took advantage of sloppy defending with a 20 yard drive that gave Alex Street no chance.
Lynn were awarded a second penalty ten minutes later when Wyant grounded Hilliard, the home custodian was booked for his trouble. This time it was Cameron Norman who stepped up to take the kick and he made no mistake, putting the ball to the 'keeper's right. With the scores equal at half time Lynn introduced Ryan Hawkins for Hilliard who was suffering concussion resulting from being on the end of the penalty incident.
As the hour approached Tshikuna went just wide of the post but three minutes later Newman scored again racing through and brushing off the attentions of Fazer Blake-Tracy to score.
With time added on approaching it was the Tshikuna/Newman combination again which led to Newman completing his hat-trick. The winger pulling the ball back to give Newman an easy finish making his tally ten goals from twelve appearances this season.
