FOOTBALL: It has been a tough few weeks for new King’s Lynn Town Ladies boss Alec Marshall.

But things are starting to look up on the pitch after being on the receiving end of a few heavy defeats during his first few weeks in the dugout.

On Sunday, the Linnets delivered a vastly-improved display in their Eastern Region Women’s League encounter at St Albans.

Spirited Lynn lost a tight affair 1-0 at Clarence Park in a game they could have got something from.

After the game, Marshall said: “Yesterday proved to me and everyone else that this team are willing to fight until the very end.

“Yes, a loss is a loss, but off the back of 13-0 and 14-0 losses away from home, we were disappointed that we didn’t win.

“This just shows what I wanted to see.”

On Sunday, Lynn host their counterparts from Royston Town in the League Cup.

In the Norfolk Women’s League, King’s Lynn Soccer Club Ladies shared the spoils with a 2-2 draw against Bungay Town at Alive Lynnsport.

Leeanne Smith and Ellie Panks were on target for KLSC, who travel to high-flying Caister Ladies at the weekend.
