More home misery was heaped on King’s Lynn Town as they went down to a 1-0 defeat against Barwell on Easter Monday.

The Leicestershire village club became the latest to complete an Evo-Stik League double over Gary Setchell’s men, who have now gone eight games without a win at The Walks, picking up just a single point out of the last 21 on offer.

Peter Winn stung the palms of Liam Castle from 25 yards and Lee Stevenson should have put Lynn in front when he was played through by Jackson Ramm. But the ball took a horrific bounce off the terrible playing surface just as he was about to pull the trigger.

Peter Winn suffered the same when he tried to shoot across goal but, much like Stevenson, the ball jumped off the pitch causing him to fire high and wide.

The second half did not have many chances and the winning goal arrived for the visitors in the 86th minute.

The Linnets back line was caught out and Jamie Towers pounced to nod the ball past the advancing Alex Street and hold off the covering Ross Watson and Ryan Fryatt to toe poke it into an unguarded net.

No such problems for the Linnets on their travels, though. On Saturday they were 3-1 victors at Trafford.

Lynn took the lead after 23 minutes when Stevenson slammed home a penalty after a foul on David Bridges.

Emergency striker Winn doubled the lead when he bundled home a cross from Stevenson.

The home side came into the game more in the second half but the Linnets went further in front when Jacek Zielonka was bundled to the floor and Stevenson doubled his tally with another well taken penalty.

The home side hit a stoppage time consolation thanks to Jon Pritchard.

Lynn will be playing away to Curzon Ashton on Saturday (11).
