King’s Lynn Town shared six goals with Yaxley last night as they drew their first game of pre-season.


Adi Staffieri put the hosts in front with a fine run and finish before Lynn’s Jason Turner equalised on the stroke of half-time.

Jamie Forshaw’s first goal in Linnets colours and a sublime 25-yard chip from Jamie Thurlbourne put Gary Setchell’s side in control.

But two goals in as many minutes from Staffieri sealed his hat-trick and ended a topsy-turvy encounter.

Lynn return to action on Saturday when they host fierce rivals Wisbech Town.
