King’s Lynn snatch dramatic winner to secure first victory of campaign
New-boys King’s Lynn secured a first National League victory as a last-minute goal from defender Aaron Jones gave them a dramatic 3-2 win at Maidenhead.
The home side, who lost their opening game 3-0 at Sutton, went ahead in the eighth minute through a penalty from Sam Barratt.
The Linnets, promoted last season, had fought back to draw 2-2 against Yeovil on Saturday and were level five minutes before the break when Simon Power curled a free-kick into the top corner.
Maidenhead were awarded another spot-kick in the 54th minute following a handball, with Barratt again slotting home from 12 yards.
Ian Culverhouse’s men looked to have salvaged a point with seven minutes left through a long-range strike from Dayle Southwell.
There was, though, time for more late drama when a fumble from Magpies keeper Taye Ashby-Hammond saw Jones knock the ball in to snatch victory.
