For the eighteenth time since the beginning of the competition the name King's Lynn appears in the draw for the First Round Proper of the FA Cup following a narrow 2-1 victory over Peterborough Sports.
Lynn struggled at times against the Turbines team flying high in their league, albeit two step lower than the Linnets and but for some poor finishing from the visitors they could have taken the match to replay.
With only three players on the substitutes bench, and none of those recognised defenders, Lynn lined up against two former Linnets and a team full of confidence.
The first real chance of the game fell to the home side on seven minutes, Michael Clunan sending Joe Rowley clear who tried to lob the onrushing Lewis Moat but the ball went just wide.
The visitors were not overawed by the occasion and took the lead on eighteen minutes when a Luke Warner-Eley cross was misjudged by Luis Fernandez giving ex-Linnet Michael Gash time to chest the ball down and score.
Lynn had a chance to level matters three minutes later but Michael Clunan's diving header from Rowley's cross went just wide. Minutes later another header, this time from
Gold Omotayo, found the side netting, Aaron Jones being the provider.
Moat then denied a Rowley header and a Brett McGavin long-range free-kick while at the other end Dion Sembie-Ferris headed straight into the arms of Paul Jones
With the first half clock running down McGavin had two corner kicks in succession.
The first saw Ethan Coleman's header tipped over and from the resultant follow-up Omotayo was on hand to head home his first competitive goal for the club.

The first attempt on goal after the restart fell to the visitors but keeper Jones denied Sembie-Ferris's close range effort.
At the other end Rowley clipped a Linton cross just wide and collided with a defender in the process resulting in lengthy treatment and the Chesterfield loanee being stretchered off.
Within a minute or so after the restart Lynn went ahead. Substitute Josh Barrett showed just why Lynn have put their faith in the former Reading and Bristol Rovers midfielder. With a neat bit of skill the ball found
Linton, then Clunan who, in turn, found McGavin to finish across Moat putting the ball into the far corner.
Sports fought to the very end only to rue their guilt-edged missed chances.
Luis Fernandez made amends for his first half mistake by clearing leading scorer Jordan Nicholson's shot off the line and then Jones did well to keep a Richard Jones effort out from the resulting corner.
A mistake by Linton allowed Nicholson another shot which he put wide and then Richard Jones put a close range effort over the bar.
