KINGS LYNN SALFORD CITY
 

Star date: 22nd November 2009

LAST MINUTE HEARTACHE FOR SALFORD

FA Trophy
King's Lynn 1 Salford City 0

Norfolk club, a full league above Salford, squeezes through to next round of the non league FA Cup in the final minutes of a match that the Ammies never deserved to lose.

On the King's Lynn fan site they've been laughing all week, guessing how many goals they'd stuff past Salford… 10-0? But the team that had rattled in 18 goals in their last two games weren't laughing for most of this match, as Salford frightened the lives out of them and their pin-drop quiet crowd.

With Rhodri Giggs injured and only 13 fit players available, Salford had chances to win this game - one effort was hacked off the line, another hit the post and there were a couple of near misses and flowing counter attacks that could have produced killer goals. 

King's Lynn, meanwhile, failed to live up to their goal-fest fan boasts and rarely threatened the Salford goal, particularly in a first half that ended even at 0-0. In the second half, when King's Lynn did get through, they found Andy Robertson in great form yet again, making some breathtaking flying saves. But five minutes from the end Rubes could do nothing as the ball ricocheted from his block to King's Lynn's player manager Carl Heggs who knocked in the winner. 

A Salford City win wouldn't have been unjust and a draw was the least this battling display deserved. But, just like the Blyth tie in the FA Cup, it was last minute heartache and the Ammies go out to higher league opposition with their heads held high.

Now Salford City have only the minor cups and the league to concentrate on – while King's Lynn have a visit from the tax man to concentrate on, we understand…How much will he stuff them for - £10,000… £20,000… £100,000?
