King's Lynn Town v Stockport County
Lynn entertain fourth placed Stockport County on Tuesday evening with a 7pm kick-off.
County are unbeaten in five league outings and were described by Dagenham & Redbridge manager Daryl McMahon as the best team they had met this season following Daggers' 2-0 defeat recently.
Two summer signings John Rooney (from Barrow) and Alex Reid (Stevenage) lead the scoring charts with Rooney notching his thirteenth goal of the season (in all competitions) against Boreham Wood on Saturday.
Lynn have Rory McAuley back from suspension.
Off the field . . .
Last Thursday, County announced the departure of manager Jim Gannon who had been in the hot seat at the club for five years and, as a player, had made over 400 appearances.
It was his third stint as manager having led them to promotion to League One in 2008 and then to the National League in 2019.
"The decision is not results based but is centred around culture," a club statement said.
It's been a while . . .
since Stockport made their last visit to The Walks. To be precise a mere 108 years, 1 month, and 12 days.
On 14th December 1912 County, a professional Second Division Football League side took on Lynn of the Norfolk & Suffolk League in the fifth qualifying round of the FA Cup.
It was a match that might have been staged at Edgeley Park, Stockport but the Lynn committee declined the offer of £50 plus half of the gate money over £100 to switch the tie.
Lynn, as expected, received a heavy defeat by seven goals to two - but the scoreline might have been closer had Lynn not lost defender J Allen to injury in the first half with Lynn trailing 1-2, Lynn having scored first.
Watched by a crowd estimated to be between two and three thousand, gate money receipts were reported to be around £78.
County were drawn away to Everton in the First Round of the competition - losing 5-1.
