St Ives 1, King’s Lynn 0

King's Lynn Town suffered their second semi-final defeat in the space of a week when they tumbled out of the UCL League Cup on Thursday night.

Still smarting from their FA Vase exit at the hands of Coalville, the Linnets succumbed to a single second-half goal at St Ives in a match that was nearly called off because of a poor playing surface.

Chances were few and far between in the opening period. But the match came to life after 55 minutes when the Saints took the lead, Scott Fielding applying the finishing touch.

The hosts had a chance to stretch their lead five minutes later when Ryan Fryatt's foul on Washington led to a penalty, but keeper Matthew Hails made a brilliant save from Ozzie Foster to keep Lynn in it.

The visitors finished strongly, with Niall Conroy-Owen called into action to keep out Luke Thurlbourne's free-kick, but they were unable to find an equaliser.
