FOOTBALL: The Linnets lost their 100 per cent record on Monday at Stamford where they came second for the fourth consecutive visit. 

Lynn failed to get a point, but had started brightly and took the lead in nine minutes when Sam Brooks had a free header from David Bell’s corner.

The half-time introduction of a certain Ryan Robbins, gave the home side inspiration and they drew level on 49 minutes when a long ball found Robbins who ran to the byline before pulling back for ex-Linnet Jordan Smith to hammer-in.

Seventy minutes were on the clock when Smith received a long corner. Several Lynn players were guilty of not playing to the whistle and Smith pulled the ball back in for Nabil Shariff to give Stamford the lead and it finished with a 2-1 scoreline.

The result was better on Saturday when Lynn made it three wins in three games as Michael Frew’s first goal of the season helped a third successive win and a start Gary Setchell would be over the moon with.

It was a scrappy start and the visitors began to create chances of their own with Alex Street diving to his right to deny the visiting Sean Geddes.

Jackson Ramm had a good chance as the second half opened, but the shot was fractionally past the far post.

Less than a minute later Lynn scored the only goal of the game when George Thomson crossed for Michael Frew to bundle the ball home.

Further chances fell to Thomson, Ramm and Chris Ward hit the bar with three minutes remaining Street did well to keep the scores level denying Billingham
