Title: Reserves
Post by: Nemesis on May 19, 2021, 12:01:18 PM
I see King's Lynn Town Reserves are listed as being in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One North for next season.
I thought I heard somewhere we were going to have an Under 23 team that played in the Norfolk Senior Cup and friendlies against the Academy teams of league clubs and not in the Thurlow Nunn.

I seem to recall SC saying this when he use to do Podcasts.   Maybe itís a change of direction and now they will be staying at Step 6, or maybe a decision to withdraw will come in the summer ?

I'd have thought the players would want to know which direction the Club is going on this, before committing themselves for next season.   :dontknow:

It might be the players know, it's just that the league doesn't!
I think a club wishing to withdraw must give notice by 31st March otherwise they could get a fine of £1,000

For a club who has just borrowed X 100ísK the little matter of a grand shouldnít be too much to worry about.

I see that the likes of Fakenham, Mulbarton, Lakenheath etc have been moved upwards to the ECL Premier.   What teams have joined into ECL Div 1 North ?

Has to be a mistake, surely....no point in having a feeder team ti the first team, if the feeder team is 5 rungs below.

There's some journeys in there for step 6 football. Huntingdon to Sheringham, Bourne to Great Yarmouth

Swaffham,Fakenham and March are able to offer a higher level of football than a Lynn Thurlow Nunn side, not to mention Heacham coming up fast behind. It would make sense for Lynn to tie up with another club or two and get these youngsters use to playing competitive men's football.
As it makes sense I doubt there's a lot of chance this happening.

Bourne to Ipswich. What an horrendous journey.

Where do UEA play?  Last time I saw them was a park pitch down near the hospital.    I wonder ( or not) how they will be funded at this level.

Post by: Wingwizzard on May 19, 2021, 09:07:34 PM
Donít they play at Derehamís. ground  as there ground is going to be where Norwich rugby club is going to be based so a Hugh amount of money available I would think. I may be wrong
Title: Re: Reserves
Post by: Gordon Chilvers on May 20, 2021, 08:06:00 PM
Yes at Dereham Town FC. I saw them play at Heacham a few weeks ago and they are  definitely capable of holding their own next season.

I guess being a Uni team then their squad will be quite fluid.

Bourne to Yarmouth could be a decent trip.   They wonít want to put that fixture into Aug/Sept

Evidently there was too much wandering for the Wanderers!

I see King's Lynn Town Reserves are listed as being in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One North for next season.
I thought I heard somewhere we were going to have an Under 23 team that played in the Norfolk Senior Cup and friendlies against the Academy teams of league clubs and not in the Thurlow Nunn.
Under 23's need a ground that's graded to at least grade 6. They won't need that if they just play against other Academy sides.
I think that decision may be made once they know exactly what facilities they have access to.I've been told that Backie and Joe are working hard behind the scenes on this and that a bullet had to be bitten before a meeting took place with KLCF. Maybe KLCF have some facilities the Club would like access to such as more access to Lynnsport as an example.
Backie and Joe would know more than most that KLCF have the ability, coaches, facilities and experience to make an Academy work. It would make sense if differences were put aside and they could work together for the common good. At least the two sides are now talking and discussing things.
I have no idea if the Club Chairman is on board with the idea of having closer ties so anything could happen with U23's!
I'm guessing on this one but I wouldn't be surprised if the Chairman would prefer that the under 23's don't enter a league with the cost being a factor, but the likes of Backie and Joe and other people involved with under 23's  would prefer them to play in the league.
