Kings Langley run riot with six second half goals against sorry Amersham Town
A Craig Lynskey double helped Kings Langley record a storming 6-1 victory over Amersham Town last night.
With the score 0-0 at half time, Kings ran riot in the second half to register their first league victory of the season.
Kings dominated the first half and would have led had it not been for the impressive Cart Morley making a string of impressive saves in the Town net.
As the half drew to a close Town had chances themselves with Stuart Bryant firing over, before Ricci Putnam was denied by Kings goalkeeper Dan Rice.
The hosts continued their spell of pressure after the break and it was Amersham who struck first when Shane Thomas eluded his marker to open the scoring.
Three minutes later however Kings were back on level terms when Lynskey coolly finished after finding space in the box.
Soon after, the visitors were in front with Liam James on hand to prod home after Callum Adebiyi’s header had been saved.
Stunned by the reversal, Town fell apart and three goals in eight minutes from Shaun Owens, Gary Coyle and Tom Carter saw Kings 5-1 up and cruising.
A neat move in the last minute, in which Carter and Coyle were involved again, saw Lynskey grab his second and Kings’ sixth to round off a memorable night for the visitors.
Kings will be hoping to continue their fine form when they host Welwyn Garden City on Saturday.
