Title: Away Travel

I still cannot believe how there hasn't been proper away travel provided for away games by the club. It's all well and good the minibus going every week (fair play to them) however surely we could fill atleast one coach.

The players performed in front of 4000 fans last week and there will probably be around 30 lynn fans at blyth today. What a come down that is! At such a crucial time of the season with the lads approaching a title run in and closing in on a consecutive promotion, they need all of the support they can get. It would be nice to be given the chance to cheers the team over the line.

It seems to me that because it's not a money maker the chairman isnt too bothered, which is very disappointing. Let's take a leaf out of boston and Yorks book (who both brought an outstanding away following to the walks) and cheer on our team both home and away.

:banghead;  What are u on, York and Boston also saw large followings of KLTFC fans at there stadiums, we take a large following to many matches, we are well supported for the size of the club, we will not take 2/300 to all away matches but do too many. Why are u taking a pop at the chairman over away travel, he has many other items to focus on for the good of KLTFC, usually supporters clubs etc. organise away travel not the Chairman. I just find your post wrong. :oldman" :farmer:

I would think the Chairman is far to busy these days to get personally involved with away travel.

Not sure where you would go with this one.   :dontknow:

Commercial dept/FOTL/ ?

We may have struggled to fill a coach previously, but would think its more likely we would be able to do so now.

I think Matt and Mark are doing a great job and I agree it should be either the TFOtL or the club doing it

I think the lads who sort the mini bus to a cracking job to be honest. It's a big job to sort a coach for all away games.as fans, like what we saw with nick Wiley at york., it's not really possible. It's the clubs Job to sort it really. Just wanted to make the point that it would be nice to have an official away supporters coach each week, I think we could fill it. Dont know why some of  you all have to take offence to everything, it was just a general point. I wont bother in future.

Up the lynn.

Carnlynn, u sure did not upset me, and I am not supporting the Chairman ( the only away travel he needs to worry about is the squads), I just think your statement was totally wrong IMHO, as Marcus says keep posting as it is an open forum, forums are based on opinions and sometimes we will agree or disagree , on this occasion I have to disagree with you but on other occasions I may well agree with your opinions. This is the democracy we live in.  :oldman"

Started bright, but after Mazza's 2 goals seem as if we sat back. Power very good when he got the ball, but unlike last week with Barrows covering left back. Fox was back and was also making the same runs, so Power didn't seem so effective. Power defo played better with Barrows.
Second half, started well and MaCauley great header 3-0, again we sat back, although Blyth offered very little. Southwell came on for Hendo and seemed quite bright, Kelly then came on for Power and his play with Southwell seems there could be a second option there - something that could develop, but Lynn saw out the match.
A good and I think comfortable 3 points. Felt we could have gone up another gear, but great to see the options now on the bench and Ward, Fryatt, Clunnan and Barrows still to return.
Peds had another great game to keep a clean sheet.
One of Blyths stewards (Harry Potter) young lad added that bit of comedy issuing us all the 1st official warning. Good laugh.

Stopped off at Blyth services A1 and we met up with Norwich Fans and Kettering. Norwich fans seeming to want to know of Lynns exploits and shaking hands and Kettering bemoaning the York goal as a foul on their keeper, but wished Lynn well.  :cheers: :scarf: :clap: :clap:

Post by: Brad94 on January 26, 2020, 12:56:26 PM
Weíre only allowed 5 on our bench at any one point arenít we. As itís going to be a struggle to pick the best 5 to put on there when everyone is available. Think we definitely need a defensive option on there. Like a Ward/Fryatt.. then with leaves the whole bench yesterday with Hawks, Carey, Payne, Southwell and Kelly.

I think as the team are so close, whatever players drop out will know theyíll have a part to play along the way!
Title: Re: Away Travel
Post by: Nigel1505 on January 26, 2020, 01:04:08 PM
I think that over the coming weeks, Southwell will have a bigger part to play than he did yesterday. IC didn't bring him in to warm the bench. Rotating him and Gash/Marriot might be an option, we'll see.

I have no idea who Mark or Matt are, is this thought the FotL?  I really don't understand why travel isn't organised through the FotL, it shouldn't be down to SC to sort out supporters and equally shouldn't be individuals running a semi-official service either

Have to say, I don't know these guys either.

Not that I have ever used Club transport (well, not Since Alvechurch in the 70's 😁)but I was not aware that the Club already arranged a mini bus for away travel, until this thread.
