St Neots Town 0 King's Lynn Town 5
Saturday 20th April
Lynn kept their sights on a second place finish with a comfortable 5-0 victory
St Neots went into this game almost certain of relegation (they would have to win their final three games with Lowestoft losing all theirs) and at the end of ninety minutes their fate was secured.
It has been a tough season for the Saints with budget cuts, managerial changes and senior players departing leaving them dependent on the youth set up.
Going into the game Saints’ cause was not helped with a season ending injury to on-loan Jordan Norville-Williams but Dan Trendall and Joe Hood, who missed the mid-week 6-0 Hunts Senior Cup defeat against Godmanchester, were available.
Lynn made a couple of changes with Aaron Jones and Craig Parker starting at the expense of Ross Barrows and Chris Henderson.
Lynn took just three minutes to take the lead, Frazer Blake-Tracy’s cross-cum-shot from the right found the net with Adam Marriott getting the slightest of touches to enable him to claim the goal.
Marriott then tested James Philip in the home goal with a snap shot on eight minutes having been played in by Michael Gash before adding a second on 20 minutes.
Jordan Richards winning the ball and setting up Marriott to tap in from two yards.
Richards then crashed a shot against the crossbar and on 25 minutes Gash looked to have scored with a header only for Craig Parker got in the way but Lynn were in complete control.
Lynn added a third on 53 minutes, Gash smashing home Richards’ low centre at the far post. Goal number four arrived three minutes later when Rory McAuley
headed home Michael Clunan’s corner.
With virtually the last kick of the game substitute Will Mellors-Blair got his first goal for the club from a tight angle which went in off the far post.
Although the five goals weren’t enough to equal Stourbridge’s goal difference the likelihood of it being a deciding factor on who clinches second spot is not high - Stourbridge would need to lose at Rushall on Monday and Lynn draw against Needham Market.
