King’s Lynn Town were beaten 1-0 at home by old rivals Kettering Town at The Walks.

A goal deep into injury-time by Ryan Fryatt - who joined the Poppies after leaving Lynn at the end of last season – settled the issue.

Lynn’s summer schedule has been interrupted by a cancellation of their opening game, at Bishop’s Stortford, and then a week ago by a Covid-19 scare.

Thankfully, the latter has not proven to be serious, and Saturday’s game goes ahead.

Lynn boss Ian Culverhouse is likely to follow his usual practice and use as ,many of his players as possible. The squad could include Simon Power foe the first time. The Norwich City loan player has shrugged off a niggle and returned to training.

However, striker Michael Gash is still absent because of illness while Adam Marriott is recovering from an ankle ligament problem.
