King's Lynn Town concluded their pre-season preparations with a 2-0 victory against Spalding United at The Walks on Saturday.

The Linnets dominated possession against their Lincolnshire visitors but only had two goals to show for their efforts.

Midfielder Mike Clunan opened the scoring with a neat finish inside the box 10 minutes before the interval.

Lynn doubled their advantage midway through the second when a Fraser-Blake Tracy cross was turned into the net by a Spalding defender.

Manager Simon Clark was delighted with the win and the side will train twice this week ahead of Lynn's Southern Central Premier Division opener at home to Biggleswade on Saturday.
