KINGFISHERS PIN HOPES ON LYNCH

The Non-League Football Paper - - SOUTHERN LEAGUE CENTRAL & SOUTH - By Dan Lewis

CONOR Lynch’s late goal saw Thatcham pick up a point in their share of the spoils with Winch­ester City.

The Kingfishers started the first half with in­ten­sity and James Tennant went close to hand­ing his team an early lead as he saw his low ef­fort tipped away by keeper Ryan Pryce.

There was con­tro­versy mid­way into the first pe­riod af­ter Josh Harfield brought down Thatcham’s James Tennant just in­side of the box but ref­eree Neil Mor­ri­son waved play on.

The vis­i­tors took the lead as Rob Carr’s well-timed flick put Jamie Bar­ron through on goal, the Winch­ester man find­ing the bot­tom cor­ner first time.

In the sec­ond half, City’s livewrire striker Simba Mlambo poked an ef­fort wide when one-on-one and in the 80th minute, the Kingfishers made them pay as Winch­ester failed to clear a deep throw-in and the ball fell to sub­sti­tute Lynch, who made no mis­take from close range. STAR MAN: Conor Lynch (Thatcham) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
