Linnets boss so proud of players after Blyth win

King's Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell's smile was as long as the trip home following his team's 3-1 victory at Blyth Spartans.

Goals from Jake Jones, Andrew Hall and Greg Mills left Lynn's manager a proud and happy man.

'This is not over-hyping things but this is a fantastic performance and result from us today,' enthused Setchell. 'We have come here today, lost two important players (Ryan Clarke and Jordan Yong) at the back, a long ride on a coach with the chips down and it would have been so easy just to roll over and write off the afternoon.

'However, this set of players I have here never know when they are beaten and, again today, they have dug in and produced a performance which makes me a proud boss.

'People can say what they like about my squad but it's full of players who can adapt and play in all kind of positions.

'Look at George (Thomson) and DJ (Dan Jacob). They have both put in magnificent shifts whilst not in their favoured positions but they just go out, do their work and move on. I have an 18-man squad and if they had all been fit today I would have had to leave two out.

'Make no mistake about it, this was top drawer stuff against a team who slaughtered Skelmersdale (top of the Evostik Premier) 6-0 in the Trophy last weekend so yes, I am happy.

'What we now need to do is to push on and keep collecting the points. Grantham (Tuesday evening) is always a tricky place to go but we are capable of picking up points anywhere and with a home game at the weekend we are entering an important phase of the season.'
