King's Lynn 1 Great Yarmouth Town 0
2nd August 1997
Simon Mead, one of a flurry of substitutes, used by Morris, scored Lynn's goal nine minutes into the second half when he volleyed home Martin Matthews' cross.
Lynn were almost denied their second pre-season friendly win three minutes from time when Martin Woolsey scrambled the ball home from close range. Thankfully the offside flag was already up.
The good news for Lynn was the appearance of Steve Lewis in goal. The Downham based keeper who has been sidelined since February with a groin injury, came on as a second half substitute.
Former Ipswich Youth keeper Jamie Hollman is expected to sign whilst Mark Hales has been released. Hales made 29 appearances in goal for Lynn since joining a couple of years ago from Shirebrook Town and has already been linked with Gainsborough Trinity.
Lynn: Hollman (Lewis), Pascoe (Sherlock), Sherlock (Skelly), Wright (Stock), Hoyle, Spearing, Roberts, Matthews, Williams (Hopkins), McNamara (Mead), Hudson.
