Match preview v Mildenhall
« on: October 27, 2017, 12:13:50 PM »
King’s Lynn Town v Mildenhall Town

Saturday 28th October

FA Trophy Lynn set out on the Buildbase FA Trophy trail on Saturday with the visit of Mildenhall Town to The Walks in the First Round Qualifying.
Mildenhall were Thurlow Nunn League champions last season and promoted to the Bostik League Division One North where they currently sit in thirteenth place and have lost their last three league games. Saturday will see their Trophy debut.
Managed by former Linnets' 'keeper Dean Greygoose, the club lost the services of two other former Lynn players in August.
Stephen Spriggs helped Mildenhall to promotion last season with 24 goals from 45 appearances whilst Chris Bacon added 14 goals from 36 appearances.
Both players moved on to Newmarket Town, Spriggs scoring 9 from 16 appearances and Bacon 1 from 8. Another former Linnet in the Jockey's squad is Jamie Thurlbourne.
Back at Mildenhall one of their August signings was that of Daniel Crow, a former team mate of Lynn's Ryan Jarvis when both played for Norwich City at Under 15 level in a team that went on to win the Northern Ireland Milk Cup.
Signing for "Hall" last week was Jack Wilkinson a defender/wing-back who started the season with Harlow Town although his debut in the team last Saturday could no prevent a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Heybridge Swifts.
Lynn have Toby Hilliard available after suspension.
If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

Dean Greygoose, good servant in Peter Morris's second spell I think. Unfortunately my abiding memory is of his red card at home to Histon on Boxing Day that preceded us conceding 8 goals.

Hope for progress tomorrow of course however if we lose let's hope Hereford do as well as there's a tasty looking league fixture at the Walks looming on Trophy first round day.
