Title: New kit
Post by: Linnet1993 on July 01, 2019, 07:37:38 PM
A thing of beauty in my opinion.

Looks very classy, loving the fact that itís blue and gold after so many seasons in yellow.

Looks well designed...really nice touches on the reverse side with the emblem and "linnets". If the numbers are in gold and  the socks contain some gold it will be a really nice, well balanced kit.

Certainly different....not sure what to make of it at first glance. Can't ever remember Lynn turning out in green before. Maybe it will be a "grower".
Title: Re: New kit
Post by: KES80 on July 02, 2019, 04:16:10 PM
Again, I guess with dark blue numbers and green and blue socks it could as The Chairman suggests look quite cool.
It certainly should stand out under floodlights !

I see a number of teams in the league have a white home kit, so maybe something similar to last year wouldn't work. Not aware of any teams in the league playing in full green (Blyth are green and white stripes.) Must mean that both goalies will need to avoid green in our away games.

That has to be one of the worst kits Lynn have had ( the green one).  I hope it looks better in the flesh than it does an image.  Canít see them queuing for that one.

I so agree with Uncle Tupelo - always seems daft describing ourselves for years as Blue and Gold, when there was no Gold !

Will we be having a different shirt sponsor? Best not buy a shirt yet!
Title: Re: New kit

Maybe an opportunity for the Club to approach Gordon Chilvers and see if a deal could be done on the first team shirts?

Where does SC keep finding these people?  Not sure where the club would stand if it was a multi-year deal, I guess it depends on what has happened to MYT, could be a number of reasons for 'striking off'
Title: Re: New kit

Always thought it strange that they didn't have a website and when you Google them the only thing that seems to appear is an American company.
I suppose they could still exist as a sole trader?
Title: Re: New kit
Post by: Mallard on July 11, 2019, 03:05:57 PM
Does seem rather strange for the club to announce the new home shirt ( including sponsor) to be closely followed by the said Sponsor name to have an application for the Company to be struck off.  Company under a year old. Begs the question did they actually trade ?  Makes you wonder  :mystic:

I wonder if Stephen Cleeve will have a few options on the infamous table?  Have many replica shirts been sold ? 

Iím sure Mark Hearle will clear everything up.
Title: Re: New kit
Post by: Paul47 on July 11, 2019, 03:13:42 PM
Iím not expert in businesses, but maybe the company has already paid the money for the shirt sponsorship for this season?
Title: Re: New kit
Post by: Mallard on July 11, 2019, 03:48:50 PM
Likewise Paul, I know little how these things work, but if we have been paid does that now make us a debtor of MYT Sports ?

Obviously will be down to the contract terms but can't see how we can be a debtor - if they paid in advance then that will have been the terms, if they are unable to benefit from this years sponsorship that is their problem, the problem for us is if the payment terms were annual.  Maybe if there is a break clause we might be able to find a more lucrative option now we have achieved step 2 but lots of ifs, buts and maybes.

I think the basis of the deal was a 3 year contract, terms to be reviewed after each season?  :dontknow:

Sad to report that our home shirt sponsor from last season has gone bust - this means there will be a delay to the home replica shirts being delivered as will need to find a new sponsor.  Away shirts are ordered and hopefully will be in the club shop for the first home game

Just to stop the conspiracy theorists we were fully paid by MYT Sports for last season although we were not paid the promotion bonus - clearly not paid for this season but I do hope to be able to announce a new sponsor very soon

Maybe Stephen Cleeve could tempt Walt Disney into sponsoring the Club. Seems a good fit.

Thatís a blow. Was looking forward to getting me new shirt, looks like Iíll have to wait a bit longer.

No doubt some will try & blame the chairman for this!!??

Have the Reserves managed to find a replacement for Double G ?  If not then thatís two main shirt sponsors to be found. 

How about MKM ?  They do a fair bit of Sport Sponsor in Lynn

That's unfortunate news.... hopefully S C can find a new sponsor before long.

Do we not have a commercial department who deal with these matters?  Or does everything fall on the Chairman ?

SC has Tweeted that the club haven't been paid for this season, so I guess we are free to negotiate with a new sponsor, but also said we hadn't been paid the 'promotion bonus' from last season, for me that would have started alarm bells ringing and may be an indication that we weren't in close enough contact with our main sponsor as we perhaps could have been.
Title: Re: New kit

The very fact that admission prices were going to go up regardless of whether we achieved promotion or not should have suggested something? :dontknow: :dontknow:

Inflation???   
The club had a deficit for 2018/19 that was unsustainable so a step towards to balancing the books???   
The club were paying over the odds for the manager/players for step 3 particularly compared to the fan base???

Delete any of the above as applicable but not really sure what admission prices has to do with the new kit unless you think the O'Neills contract is particularly good or bad financially for the club?

MYT Global the company apparently behind MYT Sports, MYT Flashy, MYT Training, MYT Media and Super Hyper applied  to be struck off the register back in January.
Had it not been for the news appearing on here I wonder how long it would have been for the club to realise they had lost their sponsor?

So if the management knew the sponsor had gone bust and would therefore lose a promotion bonus and struggle to find a new a sponsor at short notice, the only way to recoup any money was to raise prices. As luck would have it we gained promotion, if we hadn't then I think you would have seen lower crowds next season at the higher price,the big selling points for the raise were watching a higher level of football,and if you purchased a season ticket watching the reserves for free? One of those carrots has gone with the reserves being shipped out,can't see many fans forking out to watch them in Wisbech, even if they do get in for free,and hopefully Mr Cleeve will find a way to sustain the other one? Luckily the Trust are there to help a little bit with the ground improvements? :dontknow:

Well done Mr Stephen Cleeve.  The guy has found a new sponsor and hopes to announce it in the next few hours.

Now thatís what you call fast work.  All credit to the Chairman

Be an idea to get the new sponsor on the Clubs website rather than leave a company on there who owes the Club money ( unpaid promotion bonus).

I'm a bit of a "portly chap" and football shirts don't look good on me, but I'd like to wear the shorts when I'm on holiday and show people I'm a linnets fan!!
