Cirencester Town 0 King's Lynn 4
17th October 2007
The Linnets couldn't have asked for a better game to get back on track, as they continued their perfect 100 per cent record against Cirencester and Danny Bloomfield bagged a brace.
Lynn boss Keith Webb said: "There were good performances all over the pitch.
"The back four were solid; the two lads Cammy and Fisk worked tirelessly; the two wide players did as I said; and Jack's starting to get back into the form that people saw before I came here, while Danny's in a rich vein of form.
"Jack has knuckled down and produced what I knew he's capable of.
"People said Danny wasn't the player he was before, but a goalscorer's a confidence player. Once he started scoring, it's become second nature.
"There wasn't a lot of messing around. The players have got to realise I do mean business.
"We got off to a great start, and we didn't take the foot off the gas. It looked as though we could open them up at any time with passing and movement.
"I'm not going overboard. The crux of the matter comes when we play Eastbourne and Banbury.
"Away from home, teams are coming on to us, and there were gaps we had the pace and power to exploit."
The Walks outfit got a dream start after just 70 seconds.
Michael Frew fed Dean West, who put a low cross into Jack Defty, whose sweet first time half-volley from ten yards gave Ciren keeper Matty Bulman no chance.
Bulman did better on five minutes, saving at Defty's feet after the forward was put through after being set up by Mark Camm.
A Frew free-kick was deflected away for a corner, from which the same player headed over the bar.
Bloomfield doubled the advantage on 38 minutes after the forward was put through by Andrew Fisk, carried the ball another dozen yards before beating the advancing keeper.
Before half-time Joe Francis put a decent cross in, which was cleared by Nathan Haisley. Greg Crane headed the ensuing corner inches over.
Cirencester's only noteworthy chance of the opening period had been Alex Stanley's effort going inches wide.
On 48 minutes Francis went on a 30-yard run and sent a cool finish along the floor past the oncoming Bulman for goal number three.
The match was wrapped up after 53 minutes when Fisk was again involved, his pass sending Bloomfield a little wide, but he proved what an expert finisher he is for his first Lynn brace in two years.
Lynn had further chances around a busy hour mark, Frew forcing Bulman into a block and then missing an open goal with an acrobatic kick and hitting the angle of post and bar with a fierce drive.
On 68 minutes came the hosts sole second half chance, Matt Shaxton sending a long-range strike over.
In the final ten minutes substitute Mark Heath-Preston dispossessed Dan Wallington, but was denied by the keeper when one-on-one.
