King's Lynn Town 3 Stafford Rangers 1 Saturday 22nd September
Lynn progressed to the third qualifying round of the FA Cup with a relatively straight-forward victory over Stafford Rangers.
The Linnets starting line-up saw just the one change to that which drew at Halesowen last Saturday with Ryan Hawkins coming back from injury and Nathan Stewart dropping down to the bench.
Any nerves were soon eased as the home side took the lead on three minutes with a goal from nothing. A throw-in on the Lynn left found its way to Hawkins in the middle of the field and it looked as if his run would be forced out to the right but he had other ideas and shot home from some 20 yards.
The remainder of the half was bossed by Lynn with further chances falling to Hawkins on 19 minutes, which dipped just over the bar, and Rory McAuley and Ryan Fryatt who just failed to connect to a Michael Clunan corner on 34 minutes.
Stafford did get more into the game as play became scrappy but failed to create any real chances as Lynn continued to dominate and finished the half on top.
A run and cross by Frazer Blake-Tracy on 56 minutes found Harry Limb whose flicked effort was straight at Adam Whitehouse in the visitors' goal but nine minutes later
Lynn's lead was extended. A strong Adam Jones' cross towards Michael Gash at the far post was intercepted by Harrison Holgate who could only turn the ball into his own net.
Five minutes later the games was wrapped up with Craig Parker heading home a Clunan corner.
Stafford had only managed a 57th minute Jack Sharratt shot on goal but did manage a consolation on 86 minutes. Just prior to the this Theo Bailey-Jones had forced a save from Alex Street on the goalline
but he could do nothing about substitute Joe Cuff's late goal.
Lynn: Street, Jones, Blake-Tracy, Jarvis, Fryatt (Thomas 81), McAuley, Clunan, Parker, Hilliard (Gash 53), Limb, Hawkins (Richards 67). Subs: Richards, Stewart, Gash, Thomas, McQuaid, Congreve. Booked: Clunan. Scorer: Hawkins 3. Holgate own goal 65, Parker 70

Halesowen Town 2 King's Lynn Town 2 Saturday 15th September
Lynn got a deserved point against Halesowen team who maintained their unbeaten home start to the season.
Lynn, without dead-leg victims Michael Gash and Ryan Hawkins, gave Natty Stewart his first start.
A Michael Clunan free kick from distance on two minutes bounced kindly to Ryan Fryatt at the far post whose looping header cross goal allowed Craig Parker to score from close range.
It was a lead that didn't last as the Yeltz equalised four minutes later, James Roberts scoring from Jack Kelly's cross.
The remainder of a fairly even first half saw chances at both ends. Rory McCauley headed over from a Lynn corner and Sauane Babucar, signed from Alvechurch during the week, curled wide on 13 minutes.
Ryan Jarvis tried his luck from some 25 yards on 18 minutes and Asa Charlton, for Halesowen, from even further away soon after which earned a corner.
Alex Street denied Roberts and Jordan Goddard but the fans had to wait until four minutes after the break for the next goal and that came from the penalty spot.
A ball into the area fell to Lee Hughes whose heels were clipped, Hughes taking the penalty himself and although Street dived the right way Halesowen took the lead.
For a while Halesowen were winning the midfield battle with Goddard dictating and Charlton and Ahmed Ali both had chances but Lynn came back into the game.
Hughes had to clear a header off his own line and then with seven minutes remaining a Frazer Blake-Tracy cross from the left was met by the diving head of Harry Limb to earn Lynn a deserved point.
Halesowen: Platt, Ezewele, Kelly, Rea, Morris, Charlton, Babucar, Goddard (Lawton 74), Hughes (Ebanks-Blake 71), Ali, Roberts (Gilpin 87). Subs: Ebanks-Blake. Bragoli. Lawton, Gilpin, Tonks. Booked: Ezewele. Scorer; Roberts 6, Hughes 60 pen

Histon 0 King's Lynn 7 Tuesday 11th September
Lynn breezed through to the second qualifying round of the FA Cup under the caretaker managership of Neil Fryatt and Robbie Back following the departure on Simon Clark over the weekend..
The Lynn starting line-up saw just the one change from Saturday with Harry Limb being given his second start of the season. Histon made three changes with ex-Linnet Pat Bexfield being given a start and Rob Ruddy and leading scorer Ed Rolph returning from suspension.
Lynn eased any pressure they might have been feeling with a goal in the third minute, Ryan Hawkins locking on to a quickly taken Michael Clunan free kick, his mazy run ending with a shot across goal and into the far corner.
Alex Street produced a double save to deny Dan Brown a home side equaliser and on 14 minutes Lynn doubled their lead with Hawkins' second - a shot from some 20 yards which Stutes' 'keeper Sam Roach managed to tip onto the bar but it bounced down and over the line.
The two goal cushion boosted Lynn's confidence and they went on to score another four before the break.
Harry Limb's good run and cross set up Toby Hilliard to finish inside the six yard box on 23 minutes and goal number four followed four minutes later when Craig Parker was the provider for Hilliard's second.
The Lynn travelling supporters had to wait all of ten minutes for goal number five but it was worth it with Hawkins completing his hat-trick with a swerving ball from distance.
Craig Parker then lashed home number six a minute before the break.
Not surprisingly, the second half did not live up to the goal scoring exploits of the first and, more worryingly for Lynn, injuries enforced changes.
Frazer Blake-Tracy did not appear after the break and Hawkins picked up a dead leg soon after the restart and then Ryan Jarvis had to go off with a cut to his shin that needed stitches.
Limb went close to getting a deserved goal but home 'keeper Roach saved while at the other end Street managed to keep a clean sheet when he did well to deny Rolph.
Natty Stewart completed the scoring with another quality long range effort with seven minutes remaining.
Histon: Roach, Bexfield, McDonald, Smith (Emsden 34), York, Ruddy, Rolph, Swinton (Chivers h/t), Brown, Key, Green (Weinman 75). Subs: Chivers, Emsden, Diejomaoh, Gould, Weinman
Lynn: Street, Jones, Blake-Tracy (Thomas h/t), Jarvis (Richard 53), Fryatt, McAuley, Clunan, Parker, Hilliard, Limb, Hawkins (Stewart 48). Subs: Stewart, Thomas, Richards, Castellan, Rocha, McQuaid, Congreve. Scorer: Hawkins 3, 16, 37 Hilliard 23, 27 Parker 44 Stewart 83
