The Linnets started 2021 with a deserved point against Halifax Town in the cold and fog of The Walks.
Lynn gave a debut Alex Kiwomya signed earlier in the week from Chesterfield but were without COVID isolating Aaron Jones whilst Dayle Southwell and Ross Barrows lined up against their former club.
The visitors also had players making their debuts in the form of loan signings of Lewis Mansell (Accrington Stanley) and Jean Leroy-Belehouan (Sheffield United).
It was a game that ebbed and flowed with each side having periods of dominance, the Shaymen bossing the opening period culminating in efforts from Jeff King who was first denied by the leg of Archie Mair and then saw his follow-up blocked.
Martin Woods had an effort which went over while, for Lynn, the runs of Simon Power and Alex Kiwomya were causing problems for the visitors.
Lynn took the lead on 38 minutes when Jordan Richards supplied the ball to Southwell, on the right side of the penalty area, he raced forward before putting the ball back for Kiwomya to score from 12 yards.
Michael Gash had a chance soon after the restart but put the ball over and soon after the Shaymen equalised when King's cross was headed home from close range. The goal being credited to Mansell in the after match interview.
There were chances at both ends but neither keeper was seriously troubled. On 70 minutes Lynn manager Ian Culverhouse, now on a contact that will last until the summer of 2023, replaced wide men Power and Kiwomya
for Adam Marriott and Sonny Carey with the latter hitting the post and both players managed to get the ball in the net only for their efforts to be ruled offside and a similar fate waited a Halifax effort late on.
In all, good point in difficult conditions against a well organised Halifax team.
