Strikers get their thrill from scoring goals, defenders from shutting out top forwards. But King’s Lynn Town centre back Tom Ward has been achieving both of late as the Linnets close in on promotion. ADVERTISING Going into tomorrow’s game against Merthyr Town at The Walks, Ward has got the taste for goalscoring again. He was arguably the star during the Linnets’ 5-1 victory at Stratford Town last Saturday, netting with a header and a finish from close range.

It took his tally for the season to four and Ward said: “As much as Ian (Culverhouse) wants us to play attractive football, he also wants us to score from restarts.

“I do tend to find when I score they do come in a bit of a run. Once I got one last Saturday, I always fancied myself to get another.

“We’ve got so much quality going forward, but we are capable of scoring goals all over the field and that’s why so many players have chipped in. As a team we are not relying on a number nine or ten to score all of the time and we are hard to defend against as we’ve got so many threats.”
