FOOTBALL: I know you shouldn’t look too far ahead, but wasn’t it written in the stars that the paths of King’s Lynn Town and Peterborough Sports would clash in the FA Cup?
Much has already been said about the return of Michael Gash to The Walks for next Saturday’s final qualifying round encounter, but don’t forget Ryan Fryatt. He served the club so well over many seasons and will also be returning to the scene of so many memorable afternoons and evenings.
It will be a sentimental afternoon for many, especially with a reduced price admission in force.
However, the tie has provided Lynn with a great opportunity to progress to the first round proper of the biggest and most famous cup competition of them all for the second year running.
Nothing can be taken for granted on what should be an entertaining afternoon of football.
Lynn head into tomorrow’s home game with Solihull Moors still looking for their first home win.
That really should have come in midweek against Barnet. The Linnets fought back from going a goal behind to level in the first half and then controlled most of the second half without finding the net.
Having a penalty saved did not deter a positive home performance and there was still time to see a late chance cleared from the visitors’ line, who will also point to hitting the bar with almost the last kick of the game.
Hopefully those among the crowd of 1,007 were suitably stirred and not shaken by the evening’s entertainment and will be back tomorrow for more of the same.
