Frome were missing Kyle Phillips, Marcus Mapstone, Sam Teale and Ollie Knight from their line up as they travelled to Norfolk on a Bank Holiday Saturday, and with Kings Lynn safe in 14th place and Frome only having a very remote chance of making the play-off positions, this could have been an “end of season” affair, but it turned out to be anything but. On a dry pitch with a stiff wind and in front of a good crowd of 505, Crabtree was forced into action as early as the 1st minute as he saved well from Ryan Hawkins and the home side were obviously up for the challenge as Sam Gaughran headed a free kick wide a few minutes later. With Frome getting into the game after the long journey, the match turned into an open, attractive affair, with Crabtree again having to be alert in the 10th as he came quickly out of his goal to clear a through ball that threatened danger, but as the home side ramped up the pressure, they went close in the 21st as Chris Ward just failed to connect with a header and then Mike Clunan let fly with an effort that just cleared the bar. Frome’s first real chance fell to Darren Jefferies in the 30th after good work by Kris MIller and Jake Jackson, but with the shot clearing the bar, Crabtree performed heroics in the 33rd to save (apparently with his face) a close range shot from Chris Ward with the Kings Lynn twitter feed describing it  as “the save of the season”. However Crabtree could do little to deny Kings Lynn opening the scoring in the 33rd as a mix up in the defence allowed youngster Ryan Harnwell to “pass” the ball into the net from 8 yards for his first goal in the Southern Premier League and make the score 1-0 to the hosts. Another blinding save from Crabtree in the 45th denied Kegan Everington from giving the hosts another goal, and with the score 1-0 at half time, it was all to play for in the second half, which opened with a shot from Jackson being saved by Alex Street at the near post, but Crabtree was again in action in the 56th as he saved well from Kieren Ship. However, Frome were starting to apply more pressure to the home defence, but it was hard to see where the goal would come from until up popped to Jackson in the 78th minute to shoot home from close range, thus scoring his 20th of the season and his 16th away from home. Kings Lynn went very close to getting the winner in the 84th as athrough ball from Clunan found Sam Warburton in a possible offside position, but no flag was shown and his shot cannoned back off the base of the post to safety, and Frome had a half chance right at the end as a header from a corner was just blocked, but at the end of the day, the visitors would probably feel quite content to come away with a share of the points. Carl Crabtree  was awarded the  H&B Tyres Man of the Match Award and kept up his 100% record of getting this award, with two games and two awards and both times being instrumental in earning his side a draw.
