I was at the Spalding game. Although he didn't score he made some nice touches, as you expect at this level. Interestingly Kern Millar was in the side as well

Banbury take on the game, very fair.

A Toby Hilliard goal fifteen minutes from time give Lynn the win

It was an unchanged side for United for the fourth game running.

There was an early opportunity for Kings Lynn in the fifth minute when Michael Clunan passed the ball through to Toby Hilliard but the striker’s shot from the edge of the penalty area was comfortably saved by Jack Harding in the Banbury goal. The home side were now beginning to have the better of the game and in the 16th minute Lee Stevenson’s header from a right wing cross was saved by Harding when the Lynn man should probably have done better.

United’s first promising move would come in the 23rd minute when the lively Darius Browne’s cross from the left went right across the six yard box but no one was on hand to direct the ball home.

However, Lynn would go very close to taking the lead in the 26th minute when Leon Mettam’s shot from just six yards looked bound for the back of the net but Harding pulled off an excellent save low down to his left.

Lynn were now dominating the game even more and looked the much more likelier to make the breakthrough but credit to Banbury they defended well as they were put under a lot of pressure in the final ten minutes of the half.

Banbury in a rare forward move in the closing stages of the half did have the ball in the back of the Lynn net in the 41st minute, a one-two between Browne and Eddie Odhiambo led to the former slotting the ball home but the assistant referee’s flag was up for a clear off-side.

Banbury were improved in the first ten minutes of the second half. It was a much more equal game at this point with both sides showing promise going forward.

However, King’s Lynn would begin to dominate the game once more as the hour mark approached and again Banbury were forced to defend well to keep on level terms.

However, in the 75th minute the home side would score the goal that they had been threatening for some time. Good play from substitute Ryan Hawkins saw him take the ball in from the right along the bye-line before crossing low into the centre where Toby Hilliard had the relatively easy task of knocking the ball home from close range.

United had just one opportunity to get back on terms in the final quarter of an hour when in the 85th minute a George Jeacock cross from the left was glanced goalwards by Zac McEachran from 12 yards out, the ball taking a slight deflection and going just wide of the far post.

Overall, though Banbury defended well, they can have on the balance of play no complaints about the result against an impressive King’s Lynn Town side.

King's Lynn Town: Alex Street, Jacek Zielonka (Ryan Hawkins 65), Jordan Yong, Sam Gaughran, Dan Quigley, Lee Smith (Shaun McWilliams 52), Michael Clunan, Lee Stevenson, Toby Hilliard, Leon Mettam (Dylan Edge 79), Sam Warburton. Subs (not used): Danny Emmington, Dylan Edge.

Banbury United: Jack Harding, Jack Westbrook (Callum White 72), Marvin Martin, George Nash, Luke Carnell, Eddie Odhiambo, Zac McEachran, Jack Self, Ricky Johnson, Conor McDonagh (George Jeacock 56),Darius Browne (Mark Bell 79). Subs (not used): Andy Gunn, Jacob Blackstock.

This cannot be bad

Stamford's players are hoping to earn enough money from their FA Cup run to fund an end-of-season trip to the US.
The Lincolnshire side reached round one for the first time by beating National League Wrexham 3-2 after extra-time in a fourth qualifying round replay.
Stamford, who play in the eighth tier Northern Premier League Division One South, now face League One Hartlepool.
"We're on a bonus for the FA Cup and we're determined to go to America," manager Graham Drury said.
"At the minute we've got nearly £2,000 and if we beat Hartlepool in the next round I'll be saying to the chairman I want another £5,000 to go into that players' pot.
"That's our goal, our dream, to send the boys to America."
Drury, who led Conference North side Corby Town into the first round of the FA Cup five years ago, took over as manager of Stamford last season but was unable to save them from relegation from the Northern Premier League Premier Division.
And he said was delighted to make club history by giving them some cup success.
"When I came into Stamford at the back end of Christmas last year they'd won one home game in 18 months," Drury told BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
"We've turned that round and made Stamford a bit of a fortress. We've lost one game here this season and we've played some top-quality sides.
"We've stuck at it and we've got our rewards, and to take them to the first round proper, I'm a very proud man."
