Grantham Town V Kings Lynn
Grantham Town welcomed Kings Lynn to the Meres for the final game before Christmas with both teams are fighting near the top of the league it was built up as a game to watch and the boys from both sides didn't disappoint with a wonderful game of football. The first quarter was very even with Kings Lynn shading the first 10 mins and Grantham the 2nd 10 mins with no major chances fslling to either side. Manning, Warren and Wedgewood tested the keeper but pulled off some fine saves.
Into the 2nd quarter and Grantham started to dominate and that came fruition when good work from Henton and Thorngate-Vega put Manning through and he slotted past the keeper to put the Gingerbreads 1-0 up. The Gingerbreads stayed on the front foot and Henton had a goal ruled for offisde after good work from Perry- Burdett found him unmarked but the flag was up and the score stayed 1-0
Into the 3rd quarter and it was Kings Lynn who started the better and that was shown when they won the ball back very high up and they finihsed very well from 20 yards out into the bottom corner. Kings Lynn had a couple more chances to put themselves into the lead but didn't take any and the scores stayed level.
Into the 4th and final quarter and the game was very even with chances happening at both ends. It was Grantham who made it 2-1 with 11 minutes to go when great work from Burwinge-Jones and Stokes found Manning who crossed in for Warren to finish from 6 yards out. Grantham then continued after great work from Warren as he won the ball back high and ran into the box and was brought down. Warren then stepped up and scored to make it 3-1. Kings Lynn still had chances to reduce the deficit but failed to do so and Grantham saw out the game to record a 3-1 victory.
We wish Kings Lynn all the best for the rest of the season
