Ryan Barnes receives his Captain Vancouver Man Of The Match award from team coach Michael Baker.

RINK HOCKEY: Reigning England National Premier League champions King’s Lynn suffered an early shock before hitting back in incredible style.

Lynn made a shaky start at home to struggling Manchester and fell a goal behind in the early minutes from a penalty.

Gradually, however, the hosts recovered and by half-time had pulled 5-1 clear. 

They burst out of the gates in the second half and romped to a 12-1 win with Josh Taylor grabbing five of the goals.

Matthew Baker helped himself to a hat-trick with the other goals coming from the sticks of Harvey Dugdale 2, Jack Tucker and Owen Norris.

The Captain Vancouver Man Of The Match award went to Ryan Barnes.
