Same Post as on another Thread:

"After a thrilling game, King's Lynn managed a 3 - 1 win over Stratford and now entertain Alvechurch at The Walks on Bank Holiday Monday - 6th May 2019.

In the Northern Premier League Warrington came from behind to win 2 - 1. The winners of Monday's game travel to Warrington on Saturday 11th May for the Super Final and Promotion.

Lynn went behind in the 1st half in a game that was more Stratford's than ours. Both started evenly but Stratford bullied us and we showed too much respect and surrendered the midfield. Neither wings were used effectively but Stratford made the best of their chance on the break and scored.

In the 2nd half a different Lynn team soon started to play as we know they can and Ryan Hawkins thunderbolt from all of 25yards left to goalie rooted to the spot and all he could do was pick the ball out of the goal. Stratford were still dangerous and No9 was always ready to pounce. Stratford had the ball in the net twice but ruled out by a handball and offside. Then a penalty was blazed high and that rattled the visitors and Lynn scored twice more via Michael Clunan curling one in from outside the box and past an unsighted goalie. Rory McAuley then thumped a cross from the left with his head and it was game over. Stratford kept going but we defended in depth and saw the game safe.

Onwards and Upwards - I wonder how much Alvechurch had to work against Stourbridge to come back from a goal down? Fortress "The Walks" beckons!".
