FOOTBALL: King’s Lynn Town have been selected by the BBC to host Football Focus ahead of their FA Cup game against Walsall on November 6, writes Sam Plummer. 

The BBC have asked the club to invite around 100 fans to attend the filming of the programme at the ground. 

To attend, fans are required to have purchased a ticket for the game and to be at the ground from 10.45am on matchday. 

Earlier in a doubleheader of action, the Linnets buckled up for the 600-mile round trip to Torquay on Saturday, before returning to The Walks in order to welcome third-placed Boreham Wood Town. 

Against Boreham Wood Lynn welcomed Jayden Davis – a young midfielder who signed from Championship side Millwall, on a one-month loan deal. After having only 13 players on Saturday, Dan Bowry returned to the starting lineup, while Junior Morias made a substitute appearance against his former side.

Lynn started in the worst possible fashion as after eight minutes Scott Boden opened the account for the visitors. 

Starting the game with high intensity and a high pressing style of play, Lynn were caught out in their own half with Tyrone Marsh having the time and space to spot Boden in the middle with an unchallenged cross down the right flank. 

The Wood went close to doubling their lead when Marsh found himself one-on-one with Paul Jones, but the veteran goalkeeper came out on top, before earning the club’s Man of the Match award. 

The Linnets showed fight and determination to get back into the game; however, they are still searching for a first home win of the season.

Goals from Torquay United striker Sinclair Armstrong, on loan from QPR, on 40 minutes and Joe Lewis in the 75th minute had condemned King’s Lynn to a 2-0 away defeat at Plainmoor on Saturday.
