Lynn's interest in the CSS League Challenge Cup ended at Latimer Park against a strong Kettering Town team.
The Poppies fielded five players that were in their starting line-up on Saturday plus Dan Holman who was making his debut following his transfer from Aldershot Town earlier in the week. Lynn fielded just Alex Street and Rory McAuley from their starting eleven from the weekend.
The more experienced side had little trouble dominating Lynn for long periods and won three consecutive corners in the early exchanges.
Lynn, however, took a surprise lead on ten minutes when slip by Dion Kelly-Evans allowed Jack Frohawk to run through and score.
It wasn't a lead that lasted long as two goals in a minute gave a scoreline that reflected play.
First Declan Towers got on the end of a free kick to turn and score and then Aaron O'Connor put in a neat finish beyond Street.
Kyran Stannard went close with a long range effort on 18 minutes but the home side went further ahead through Brett Solkhon who headed home after a Holman shot deflected into his path.
The first half ended with a couple of chances either end with Towers hitting the bar and Dylan Edge shooting wide for Lynn.
The second half produced very little with the tie seemingly over. Lynn tried to get going but lacked any effectiveness in the final third while Kettering bossed the game but were frequently being caught offside. The better scoring chances fell to the home side with Street doing well to save from the impressive Holman and Andrea Borg shaking off the attentions of two defenders but then shooting over when well placed.
Solkhon then had a 25 yard curler that went over but Holman wrapped up the game with two goals to crown his debut. On 78 minutes he shot home off the post after a pass from Lindon Meilkle and he completed the scoring six minutes later.
Lynn ended the game with three sixteen year olds on the field who did themselves credit and never stopped running.
