Kings Lynn Town

The Canaries took the honours against the Linnets last season. The 2-1 win at The Walks saw a "goal of the season" contender from Ben Walster and a Matt Lench effort, while new manager Ian Culverhouse was given a tough baptism at Top Field as Hitchin romped home 5-0 (Callum Donnelly, Burns 2, Lench, Kirkpatrick). The Linnets eventually finished 13th on 60 points after a season of transition, following a 9th place finish on their return to the Southern League Premier Division in the previous campaign.

Hitchin's encounters with Kings Lynn Town in 2015-16 were the first since the Linnets reformation in 2010, after Kings Lynn FC were wound up. The Linnets moved across from the Northern Premier League having progressed through the divisions since 2010. In that time they also embarked on a number of cup runs, reaching the Vase Semi-final in 10-11, and the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup in 11-12 and 14-15.
