King’s Lynn Town ended 47 years of hurt against Kettering Town in the league – before manager Ian Culverhouse delivered a stinging attack on the club in his post-match interview.

Before celebrating a magnificent comeback against their promotion rivals, Culverhouse took time out to talk about the lack of preparation on the deteriorating playing surface at The Walks. It came after goals from Michael Gash and Ryan Fryatt clinched a dramatic victory over the Poppies, who had taken the lead through a Brett Solkhon penalty early in the second period.

A furious Culverhouse said: “I want to get something off my chest first. I think this club let the players down tonight.

“To turn up tonight and to have a pitch in the state that we’ve got it, I don’t think it is right. After what those players have done for the club this season, they deserve better than that.

“For the team to come out and have a pitch that hasn’t been worked on for five days is shocking.”
