Chris Henderson hassles and hustles and is a breaker up of play who then storms off with the ball and turns defence into attack. Well placed to toe-poke home the loose ball for a poacher's goal - 1 - 0. Hendo found himself in the box on a run but thought the goalie was covering too wel on a tight angle a made very unselfish pass to Michael Gash to score a long awaited goal - 2 - 0. Nathan Fox was my MoM as he kept tabs on No10 and in the thick of all the action. Jordan Richards was a bit quiet by his usual standards but still effective, more as a play maker than defensive. Agree that Gash and Adam Marriott (Player of the Month) were in offside positions waiting for the ball far too often in the first half and Ian Culverhouse (Manager of the Month) must have talked about it at HT.

Rory McAuley, Ross Barrows and Sonny Carey, Nathan Fox and Aaron Jones held the defence fairly well but ball passing between them in the first half led to too many interceptions due to under-hit balls, sticky ground at the Seven Sisters end and Blyth pressing the defence high up the pitch - we were lucky to get away without conceding at least twice. Blyth were pretty ineffective first half but were a changed team after HT. Much better in attack as they chased a 2 - 0 lead. 

The introduction of Ryan Hawkins brought pace and spark up front and he had several attempts on goal, one of which fell kindly to Adam Marriott who slotted home - 3 - 0. Alfie Payne also came on for Michael Clunan late in 2nd half (resting or tactical?).

Good result and improved GD and with York held 0 - 0 at Kettering and Chester losing it was a "Good Day at the Office".

Still worrying that Ryan Fryatt is still not fit, Tom Ward with 2weeks off with a concussion issue, Sam Kelly with a slight groin strain. Chris Smith still not fit with arm injury. Nathan Stewart still at Leiston on loan for a month from 15 November  and Harry Limb at Boston Town(?).

General Discussion / King's Lynn v Blyth Spartans on Saturday 7th December

Lynn are flying high but must swoop low down against Blyth who are flapping away just above the bottom of the table.

We all know that such matches often have a twist in the tail as feathers fly and how the mighty can fall and be brought to the ground.

Looking forward to a battle royal and Lynn improving their Goal Difference with a win and a clean sheet. 3 - 0 and 1000+.

Gateshead's solid defence and some dubious decisions by the Refereee really broke up sequences of play. I have never seen so many "drop-ball" situations in a game.

Lino's were obviously there to follow the ref's throw-in indications and flag as many off-sides as possible whilst being blind to any shenanigans going on, especially the manhandling of Gash and anyone else in a tight spot with the ball - only seen so many "holds" and "throws" in a wrestling ring  :laughcry:

Gateshead's No9 was a handful all afternoon. Hard tackling and going for the ball was the order of the day by both sides - it certainly was a man's game and not for  "boys".

Pedro was again at his best, saving Lynn several times from point blank range. Jordan Richards had a good game and doesn't pull back from anything - he was hacked down near the sideline and his "attacker" was lucky to see  :yellow card: rather than a straight  :red card:. Chris Henderson had his usual hard running, tackle anything and attacking play and was again subbed - some comment that it's always Hendo that gives way for fresh legs, I wonder he has any legs left after 60-70mins  :worship:.

Very impressed with Ross Barrows who has really settled into his role alongside Tom Ward and Rory McAuley. Nathan Fox was in the thick of it making some timely tackles but less effective up the wing than normal. We played one of our "narrow" games rather than wide wing play.

It took a cool finish by Adam Marriott to settle things and both teams "had it in the net" but both ruled out by a pretty awful Referee whose whistle was the centre-piece of the afternoon.

Norwich are Away at Everton so we may pick up some non-travelling fans who might like to see a big(ish) club play Hereford  :laughcry: :laughcry:

The "Make-Up" of the Back Line might well depend on what IC has learnt about Hereford's capabilities of attacking tactics - are they a narrow or wide playing team, stronger on the right or left wing etc.

Who will line up at the Back?        Street - Jones, Barrows, McAuley with Hawkins, Jarvis, Clunan, Richards, Fox and then Henderson, Gash and Marriott. Kelly, Carey, Stewart as preferred Subs getting a decent game time of 30, 20 and 15mins in that order.

Do Lynn try for a strong run in the FA Trophy (make some money in the process) and consolidate a Top 7 spot or throw everything at a tilt at Top Spot?

The game is not a high interest event albeit FA Trophy.

If Hereford were "High Flying" in the League and Lynn were in the mix as well there would be more at stake and a higher Away following.

Bevan Asher brilliant video, thanks. What a game. Both sides going hammer and tongs with some fantastic footwork by all the players. What a build up to Adam Marriott's goal! Pure joy to watch the slick passing and cool control against a very good team. Alex Street made some great saves - thanks Pedro. Chris Henderson works his socks off and you can see why he gets subbed a lot as he must be knackered.

Club statement
November 15, 2019

Following a meeting between the King’s Lynn Town football club safety advisory group and representatives of  the local authorities, including Norfolk Police, a person has been given a banning order from attending all fixtures at The Walks stadium for the remainder of the 2019/ 20 season. This is in relation to an incident that took place during the fixture with Chester, played at The Walks  on Saturday October 12th 2019 and another  incident prior to this date. A second person has also been issued with a ‘ final warning  ‘ letter in relation to events that took place , again during the match with Chester. 

During the fixture at Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday November 9th 2019 two King’s Lynn Town supporters were ejected from Bradford’s stadium for incidents that occurred during the first half of the game. These two individuals have been identified by the club and are also (in the process) of receiving ‘ final warning ‘ letters in relation to their actions.  All three persons issued with ‘ final warning’ letters have been told that further repetition of their actions will also result in banning orders from attending all fixtures at The Walks.

The actions of the persons above has seen the club being fined by the Football Association and warned of their future conduct. Indeed an investigation regarding last weekend’s incidents  are still ongoing. It is with all of these factors taken into account  that the club are now adopting a ‘ zero tolerance ‘ stand on such misbehaviour and actions. The club also wishes that all supporters read and are aware of a ‘ safe guarding statement ‘ that appears in every home match programme covering supporter behaviour whilst in the ground.

As a club we value and appreciate your support of the club and team greatly. However we do ask that your support is given correctly and not in a way that could cause offence to others. We will be monitoring  behaviour even more closely from now on, beginning at Southport  on Saturday  ,  to ensure this happens. Further incidents and allegations this season could see serious consequences  for the club in the future.

 The club will be making no further comment on this statement.
