King’s Lynn Town chairman Stephen Cleeve makes a bitter dig at Wrexham after suffering defeat to them on Saturday afternoon.
The Linnets found themselves 2-0 down at the break, and although they were much better in the second half, the visitors held on for a much needed three points.
It took just eight minutes for Jamie Reckord to break the deadlock, before Adi Yussuf doubled the Welsh outfit’s lead just under 20 minutes later.

The result seems to have left a bitter taste for the hosts’ chairman, as he took to Twitter with a jibe having watched his side lose.
Cleeve wrote: “It shows just how far Wrexham have fallen that they are so delighted in beating Little Old King’s Lynn – they are after all the longest serving members of The National League and have ran it themselves for several years and screwed it up”
“First half – shocking, shocking,” said the Lynn boss. “We just rolled over. They were more physical, came out quicker. There was a desire to be on everything and we were the opposite.
“Second half it just changed round. We didn’t play any football, we just asked questions of them and created a few chances.
“But we can’t start games like that, it is ridiculous.”
“We didn’t deal with it, “added Culverhouse. “We didn’t stop the balls into them. We were way off of it – we can’t start games like that otherwise we are going to be in big trouble.”
Dean Keates of Wrexham also spoke after the game, you watch the interview by clicking play below…
The result leaves King’s Lynn Town 20th in the National League table, leaving them three points ahead of the drop. Wrexham sit 9th and three points from the playoffs.
