King’s Lynn Town v Spennymoor Town
National League North
Saturday 11th November 2023, 3pm
The Walks Stadium

The Opposition
King’s Lynn Town are beginning to show signs of recovery after suffering a slow start to the new campaign which saw them win just one their first 11 National League North games.

That run of form spelled the end for former boss Mark Hughes who had stepped up to manage The Linnets following the departure of Tommy Widdrington to Aldershot in the summer.

The appointment of former Curzon Ashton chief Adam Lakeland has prompted a revival though, and the Norfolk outfit are unbeaten in four and have tasted victory in three of their last six.

Previous Meeting
King’s Lynn Town enjoyed an emphatic 3-0 win when Moors last made the trip to The Walks Stadium back in March, thanks to goals from Adam Crowther, Jordan Ponticelli and Gold Omatayo.

The sides shared the points at The Brewery Field in the previous month as Paul Blackett and Reece Kendall were on target for Moors in a 2-2 draw.

Team News
James Montgomery will hope to recover from an ankle injury which kept him out of Tuesday’s game against Curzon Ashton, while Michael Ledger and Reece Staunton will also hope to prove their fitness.

Ben Pollock remains unavailable for selection this weekend as he completes a three-game suspension following his red card at Scunthorpe United.

Match Officials
Luis Griffiths will take charge of Saturday’s National League North encounter at The Walks, and he will be assisted by Murray Grant and Karl Donaghey.

Moors fans are advised to buy their tickets online in advance, if possible, though there will be availability from the King’s Lynn Ticket Office prior to kick-off on the day.
