The only name on Tuesday's team sheet that also appeared on the sheet for the first match of the season was that of Sonny Carey - he appeared as a substitute against Yeovil back in October last year.
While the team that took on Stockport County was much changed, it produced a first half performance that was a pleasure to watch.
The Lynn line-up showed two changes to the team that narrowly lost to Chesterfield, Michael Clunan and Elkan Baggott starting with Tai Fleming dropping to the bench and Cameron King out injured.
Stockport fielded an unchanged starting eleven to that which won 3-0 at Wrexham on Saturday.
The opening twenty minutes belonged to the home side although Lynn had the first shot on goal with Carey's low drive being smothered by home keeper Ben Hinchliffe.
The Hatters first chance fell to recent signing Paddy Madden whose header from Tom Walker's cross was tipped onto the bar by Theo Richardson.

A minute later the home side took the lead although there was an element of good fortune about with Madden's volley looking to go wide but it was in the path of Alex Reid who was able to head it home for his 14th league goal of the season.
Reid had another headed effort that went just wide but Lynn came more into the game and began to boss midfield with Carey and Ethan Coleman looking particularly impressive but they were unable to create many clear cut chances.
Tyler Denton had a shot blocked by Macauley Southam-Hales and Alex Babos had an opportunity after neat work by Carey put him through but his shot was deflected by Ash Palmer and went over the bar. Michael Gash had appeals for a penalty turned down after being grounded by James Jennings.
The second half was a different affair with Stockport adopting a more direct approach.
Michael Clunan had an early effort go just wide but Stockport replied with pressure and won three quick corners, Liam Hogan going close heading just wide from one of them.
Stockport were awarded a penalty when Southam-Hales was brought down by Coleman but John Rooney (younger brother of Wayne) put his kick low and to the centre and was kept out by the legs of Richardson.
Richardson's good work was undone five minutes later when a goal kick from the Lynn stopper fell straight to Rooney who returned it with interest from some 25 yards to put the Hatters two up.
Two further goals followed from Madden in the 71st and 84th minutes to give a score line that didn't reflect the fine performance from Lynn in the first half.
