Stifling temperatures greeted the players of King's Lynn Town and Fakenham Town as they began their pre-season schedule at Clipbush Park on Saturday.

With numerous substitutions and refreshment breaks as well as the absence of senior players from both sides, there was little to read into the final result.

'It was a good training session, that was all it was ever going to be,' said Linnets boss Gary Setchell.

'Results are not important, performance is not massively important. It is just about good habits and trying to work on one or two things and having a look at one or two things.'

Northern Premier League Lynn fielded new boys Andy Hunt and Ryan Clarke and they linked up well down the right flank.

'They played very, very well,' said Setchell. 'The most pleasing thing is both new signings came in and played very well and Dan Jacobs after his operation came through unscathed, which is another massive plus.'

Wayne Anderson, manager of Thurlow Nunn First Division Fakenham, fielded new signing Robbie Harris up front alongside Kyle Plumb and they did well against opponents from a higher level.

'The result wasn't what I was worried about, it was the fitness of the boys,' he said.

In front of a crowd of 236, Lynn went ahead on 22 minutes through Lewis Gibson, 16, with James Page levelling before George Thomson scored the winner just before the break.
