A Story Worth Sharing ...

... regarding the Kings Lynn v Stocksbridge Park Steels game on Saturday (courtesy of "Salkster" on the Non League Zone Message Board) ...

"One of the craziest game I have witnessed today at Kings Lynn and probably never will see one like it again. [SPS] 2-0 up and should have been 4-0 up. Looks like chances wasted as Kings Lynn pull it back to 2-2 to set up an end to end final 15 minutes. On 90 minutes Kings Lynn get a penalty and [SPS] keeper sent off. An old gentleman in the crowd has a heart attack and with our keeper being a nurse rushes off to help give him CPR as he's coming off the pitch. The match continues with our striker who had been on the pitch 2 minutes going in net. The penalty goes wide leaving the match at 2-2 in stoppage time. 94th minute Kings Lynn score a 3rd and the team and management celebrate like they have won the league. 96th minute our striker now keeper goes up for a free kick and heads the ball to the back post which gets tapped in to make it 3-3 and the final whistle not long after. Absolutely mental scenes.

On a more important note I hope the fan who collapsed is ok. Full credit to our keeper Ben Scott, who had been getting plenty of stick from opposition fans throughout the match, for going out to help the gentleman. Scenes like these are what makes me proud to first of all know Ben, to support this club and to be in the Non League family. Scenes like that today shows there are more important things than football."
Big up to Ben Scott - wouldn't it be nice if the League Management showed a bit of compassion regarding the red card ??

Looks like a lovely day for football today ... a rare treat for a Bank Holiday afternoon !!
