It was a bad week for Lynn Reserves with two heavy defeats and two players being dismissed from the field.
On Wednesday evening at Histon, the Reserves were seeking to reverse the result of the recent meeting at The Walks when Histon had won 2-1.
Unfortunately they came up against a much strengthened Histon side who had included several players seeking to impress Stutes' manager, Steve Fallon and be taken on for Conference, not E.C.L. football.
Not surprisingly the result was a 5-1 win for the home side and it could easily have been several more. In stopping one of these attempts, keeper Ally McAnally denied a clear cut scoring chance to a Histon forward and was sent off.
At Leiston on Saturday, always a difficult game for the Reserves, they went down to a 4-0 defeat, Lynn's cause not being helped by conceding two penalty kicks, both of which were converted. To cap a miserable afternoon, Nelson Moreira was dismissed late on in the game and will now be suspended.
The reserves will be hoping for a better result on Tuesday when they travel to Plantation Park to meet Norwich United in a re-arranged Eastern Counties Premier Division fixture, k.o.7-45 p.m.
In was better news from the A-team camp as they set out on the route to Carrow Road in the Norfolk Junior Cup.
As last year's runners-up they hope to go one better this time. In their First round tie the A-team faced North Norfolk side, Gimmingham United.
They went through to the second round by virtue of a 7-2 victory with goals coming from: Martin Allen 2, Tom McLeish, Kevin Leggett, David Howlett, Jordan Penty and newcomer Ty Wilson.
On Thursday Lynn return to Histon, this time to meet the formidable Histon Youth set-up in the FA Youth Cup first qualifying round.
Kick-off at Bridge Road is at 7.45p.m. Any support would be much appreciated.
