King's Lynn 1 Chasetown 0
18th August 2012
SUMMER signing Russell Dunkley was on target as the Linnets began life in the EvoStik League with a welcome three points.
Striker Dunkley was on target midway through the second half in front of 599 spectators - Lynn's lowest opening-day crowd for ten years.
On a sweltering afternoon, the Linnets put a nervous start behind them and grew in confidence as the game wore on.
The introduction of Steve Spriggs, ten minutes into the second period, gave Lynn a much-need injection of pace, while both Phil Gulliver and Jamie Forshaw had outstanding games for the hosts.
