Curson Ashton post match
« on: August 25, 2019, 06:43:43 AM »
After a very nervy start the lads produced a scintillating performance yesterday and well worth the three points :clap: Although it is only six games in, I am confident this group of lads can stay within the top 10 without question barring injuries to the front two....gash & Marriott would be irreplaceable at the moment which is my only concern..slightly surprised by the low attendance on a glorious day, but the only losers was the non attendees...let the good times roll :scarf:

I was also, initially at least, disappointed with the attendance but fans were probably absent because of the good weather rather than despite of it. Norwich at home too. Still, the average home attendance is about 300 or so up on last season which is encouraging.
The B & G bar was a great place to watch the Norwich match yesterday. Standing room only; great atmosphere.
Lynn did start slowly but were very impressive thereafter.

What a great performance from the lads, true they looked second best for the first 15 minutes but what character to come back as they did. They should all get men of the match awards. There will not be many teams in this league that will get the better of Kingís Lynn, true we will have off days but not too many I hope.

It was a hot, long day, but what a day !   Think Iím in dreamland.  I canít think that anyone would have seen this start to the season coming.  We have stepped up a gear.  If anything this League suits more than Northern Prem of last season.

I do feel slightly aggrieved for the Chairman. He has put everything into the Club and with the brand of Football being played at The Walks it got to be worth more than 800 odd supporters. We all need to do all we can to drag people there to have a look at the entertainment on offer.  Itís 15 quid well spent.  Man of the match wise.  Who cares.  Give it to Stephen Cleeve

Curzon Ashton arrived late for The Ball but certainly made an impressive entrance.

All over us and we were on the back foot and slipping all over the place - especially Michael Clunan who might as well been playing in slippers for all the grip his boot gave him (thankfully he appeared to play in running spikes 2nd half). Curzon's goal came quickly and I thought we were in for a thrashing.

Somehow the lads started to keep possession for longer spells and this gave the confidence. We then took the game to Curzon who still looked slick and dangerous. The penalty and Gashy's great headed goal took the wind out of their sails and Lynn finished the 1st half much beeter than they started.

2nd half we dominated but Curzon still looked as if they had the heart to get an equaliser. That is until our 3rd which saw their heads drop and the 4th put the final nail in their coffin. Give them their due, Curzon still played good passing football (they all knew where each other would be). They lifted themselves up and tried to get one back but Lynn started to play "keep the ball" and all Curzon could do was run after it.

Well done lads - my MOM would have been Rory McAuley for how he controlled the backs and cool under any pressure.

Didnít stay for 2nd half as the late start messed up evening plans.  But, have to agree with WestLynn... Curzon looked very slick for much of the first half, and until the penalty looked well capable of giving us a bit of a tanking.  However, glad to read how well the team played 2nd half, and not a surprise as so good so far this season.  Very disappointed with the gate, but those sort of days can increase or decrease an attendance.  Please keep your interest despite the gates, SC - youíve done a great job.

Yesterday was a great result. The real test will come when play the ex league teams away: Chester, York, Hereford Southport etc. Lynn have started much better than I anticipated and I hope we can keep up the momentum that has happened so far. In IC we have a manager who knows what's what to survive in this league, and we should all be grateful we have him. If we are still in the top 6 by Xmas then all will be well. This league is a learning curve for the Linnets and up to now we have adapted well. A mid position by the end of the season will be, by me anyway, deemed a successful season. If we can improve on that then upwards and onwards to the Conference.

I think testís will come all the time away from home throughout the season.  Ian Culverhouse isnít getting carried away by this start.  Bumps in the road ( as IC calls them) will happen and we have to remember we are in there fighting with some big hitters in this league, including a host of ex Football League clubs and most having played at National League Premiership.   We are one of the minnowís now at this level,

I for one am going to enjoy the ride and letís see where it takes us.

 :oldman" I have to agree, we are a minnow in terms of this league and yes there are better supported teams than ours, however we support our team just as fanatically as any other fans. We must remember, these so called big teams are in this league because they were not good enough to stay in higher leagues, so were relegated. There will definitely be stern tests ahead but let them worry about us, Guiseley was possibly the wake up we needed and I don't think we have been shown up by any side so far this season. Big teams do get beaten by smaller teams on a regular basis, so buckle up and enjoy our ride.
Hereford are a big team at this level and over the past few years have found KLTFC a hard nut to crack, so why should York, Boston, Southport etc not worry about our squad, we will I believe fear well in this league, and let's see where we are at Christmas. :farmer:

Looking at videos of York, Chester etc we certainly shouldn't be too fearful. Once we get over the next 4 games (hopefully, with some decent outcomes), then it is mainly Saturdays, which should help a lot.
Tough one today after only 48hrs rest, at Farsley....poor bumpy pitch by all accounts against a big side who frequently pump it long.
Be interesting to see what tactics IC employs.
