Just 226 witness Linnets reaching second round

King's Lynn Town progressed into the second round of UCL League Cup last night when they beat Raunds Town 2-1 at The Walks.

A late goal from Nelson Moreira settled the issue in front of Lynn's lowest gate for a competitive game since January 2007, just 226.

Moriera gave Lynn a seventh minute lead which they held on to until the 80th minute when Carl King equalised.

Extra-time looked a certainty but Moreira scored in injury time to set up a second round tie against Northampton Spencer.

Lynn gave a trial to Cypriot youth international Alex Konstantinou in a team that was a mixture of first teamers and reserves.
