Impressive Lynn came from behind to extend their unbeaten pre-season programme to four matches.

Jordan Blackwell gave Sudbury an early lead – after Luke Callander had left Sam Gaughran for dead in the build-up – by rounding Lynn keeper Alex Street and rolling the ball into an empty net.

Lee Stevenson equalised for the Linnets following industrious work from midfield compatriot Conor Marshall. The hosts' excellent play was rewared further after the break when Stevenson, teed up by Gaughran, doubled his account. And Sam Mulready soon made it three when he followed up Marshall's saved effort to net from close range.

Michael Clunan's penalty in time added on capped a fine personal display as he and a host of his team-mates showed their class during a what was, at times, a fiesty affair.

The Walks' faithful were rightly appreciative of their troops' free-flowing play at the final whistle as they continue to build up a head of steam before the big Southern League Premier Division kick-off on Saturday, August 8.

Gary Setchell's side are back in action on Tuesday when they visit Brackley Town in their fifth warm-up fixture of the summer.
