King’s Lynn Town are back in pre-season action on Monday night when they head to Chelmsford City (7.45pm). 

Lynn have had three pre-season games, losing to MK Dons and Norwich City, but then thumping Gorleston 7-0 in a hastily arranged match last week. 

Manager Ian Culverhouse gave his new strikers 90 minutes together and they rewarded him - Gold Omotayo scored four goals and Junior Morias one at Emerald Park. Kyle Callan-McFadden made his first appearance since an injury at the end of last season, but Lynn were without injured defender Dan Bowry and midfielder Ethan Coleman. 

There will be a few familiar faces for Culverhouse: Elliott Ward, a Norwich City centre-half during Culverhouse’s time at Carrow Road, is assistant to manager to Robbie Simpson, while striker Simeon Jackson is back with the Essex aside after a loan spell with Lynn at the end of last season. Another former Canary, Micky Spillane, is Chelmsford’s Academy manager. 

Entry is £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and free for under-12s.
