King's Lynn Town v Barwell
Saturday 19th January
Having defeated the Crows with a late goal last Saturday, the Linnets look to complete their first league double of the season when the Canaries of Barwell visit The Walks.
Barwell appear to be going through something of a rebuilding process with a number of new arrivals since the start of the year.
Striker Anthony Dwyer has joined from Leamington and Reece Blackmore and Anthony Dwye from Bedworth United.
Amongst the departures is former Linnet Massiah McDonald who moved onto Rushall Olympic.
Barwell gave a debut to Aiden Print from Rugby Borough and had another new signing, Justice Campbell, on the bench when they lost away to Rushall 3-1 last week. Suspended for that match was ex-Linnet Henry Eze who picked up two yellow cards on New Year's Day against Tamworth.
Eze joined Lynn in September 2014 making forty appearances, scoring twice. He went on to play for Romulus, Chasetown, Rushall and Stamford before joining Barwell in December, and has made seven appearances for them, scoring three goals.
Barwell played the home league match again Rushall five days before Saturday's away match and had striker Jamie Towers receiving a straight red and he will be suspended on Saturday.
For those unable to make the game there will be live match commentary on BBC Radio Norfolk.
Lynn Reserves travel to Wisbech St Mary who sit one place above them in the league.
Wednesday 16th January
The club have announced the departure of Matt Castellan whose contract has been cancelled by mutual consent.
Signed from Swaffham Town in September 2015 he made fifty appearances that season, scoring seven goals.
The following season saw him suffer a serious head injury playing for Lynn at St Ives in October 2016
which kept him out of the game for a long period.
His appearances this season have been limited and he departs with a record of 3 goals from 58 appearances.
He has joined Dereham Town.
Royston Town 0 King's Lynn Town 1
Saturday 12th January
Lynn clung on to third spot in the table thanks to a last gasp winner at Garden Walk.
Without Aaron Jones, recovering from a knee operation, and the injured Jordan Richards and Michael Gash, the latter rested as a precaution as he has a tight hamstring.
Lynn gave Jake Kerins his debut following having signed from Bury Town on Thursday.
The match lacked goal mouth action with defences being on top through out. Lynn had the better of possession in the first half without making calling upon Joe Welch in the home goal. The Crows had the better of the first half chances the first, on 32 minutes saw Vance Bola shoot wide from Josh Castiglione's cut back and the second saw Alex Street pull off a superb point blank save to deny Castiglione just before half time.
Lynn's best chance was Ryan Jarvis' centre on 20 minutes to the waiting Frazer Blake-Tracy but Gus Scott-Morriss made a timely intervention.
Royston came more into the game in the second half Joe Newton's cross just evading Castiglione just after the hour while Lynn replied with Ryan Hawkins striking the base of the post on 76 minutes.
Sam Corcoran and James Potton then had efforts that were saved and wide respectively as the match looked to be heading for a draw.
With the match into time added on Hawkins dispossessed Adam Murray and centred for Blake-Tracy to slide home his first league goal of the season to give Lynn all three points and extend their unbeaten run to eighteen.
Royston: Welch. Scott-Morriss. Newton. Thomas. Murray. Joseph. Mentis. Corcoran. Bola (Potton 76). Castiglione (Gallin 86). Gordon. Subs: Oswick. Potton. Gallin. Crowther. Brathwaite
Lynn: Street, Kerins, Blake-Tracy, Jarvis, Fryatt, McAuley, Clunan, Robinson, Marriott, Parker, Henderson (Hawkins h/t)). Subs: Hawkins, Castellan, Bastock. Booked: Marriott. Scorer: Blake-Tracy 91
