KING’S LYNN TOWN FC VS MK DONS: PREVIEW

The Linnets face an exciting opportunity, being put to the test against League One outfit MK Dons at The Walks (Tuesday 13th July. 19:00 PM), as part of the club’s opening pre-season fixture. As the new season looms, King’s Lynn have organised a thrilling array of fixtures to prepare for the club’s second season in the Vanarama National League.

The fixture list provides a test from a wide range of sides, with Peterborough United and Norwich City being announced as opponents, the pair will both make their way to North Norfolk later on in the pre-season schedule. On the road, the club has confirmed away fixtures against the likes of: Chelmsford City FC; Alfreton Town; Heacham FC; and Bishop’s Stortford FC.

The fixture will present a familiar face in former Norwich City defender, and now MK Dons boss: Russell Martin, who will lead his side into this clash; having taken on the managerial position in November 2019. As well as former Canary Andrew Surman and on-loan Josh Martin. The League One side also has former Chelsea prospect Josh McEachran on their books, a player who played for The Blues eleven times before having spells at: Birmingham City; Watford, Middlesborough; Vitesse Arnhem; and Brentford.


Nice write up by Sam Plummer.

Sam, Kings Lynn is in West Norfolk, not North Norfolk.

Maybe Peterborough and Norwich have decided to make a day of it, have some Cromer crab and a stroll along the pier en route☺️

You wouldn't want to visit Cromer at moment it's heaving with visitors.

Just back from a trip up to Shannock Town ( in North Norfolk or is that East as Kings Lynn is no longer West).   Not too busy and had a nice Sheringham Crab.

Is it crabs or lobsters that walk sideways?

GS I bought the crab in Sheringham without a birth certificate so as far as I’m concerned it was a Sheringham crab.  They don’t know the difference between Cromer and Sheringham  :laughcry:

Kenny I’ve never suffered with Lobsters

If you turned it over before dismantling, preparing and eating....just behind the third claw on the left hand side there is usually a liitle S or C, denoting it's origin.......they did away with cbc's ages ago.

I know we seem to have strengthened the defence but even so I would hope for a few more goals in two hours of football for those going to watch this eveing

Reading that last night attendance was under 400.   Thats disappointing for the visit of a League Club.

Good to hear that Norwich is a sell out for Friday night. Why the big difference ?

My guess is that Norwich will be bringing a good number of supporters.

400 hundred is pretty good for a friendly. Trouble is the price wasn't friendly.

Bury Town pulled in 645 for a game at Ram Meadow for a game v Ipswich youth.

Can it be all down to the cost.  The prices for Norwich are higher and that’s a sell out.

I think now that Lynn are at NL level, there are names as big as MK Dons every week. People would rather save their denarii for games that matter.

I also think the club need to improve their connection with the fans........ it's just dribbles of information here and there, very few new fan initiatives, limited squad info, nothing from the Chairman for yonks ...  ......    ...until its time to pay for a match,programme, parking space, merchandise etc. You really do have to work hard in all areas.....the commercial side, the fan base .....and player recruitment. I have to say, I really don't feel fully engaged with the club at the moment....infact it is only this Forum with the info and banter that gives me any real connection at all

On that point KES. I just listened to a 7 min plus interview on Twitter from Russell Martin on last nights game.

When was the last interview for the fans done by the Manager ?  Feel we had better PR when we were playing at step 5.   

Who is even head of media these days ?

Have to admit I tend to look at edp and lynn news twitter in fact just seen Southwell talking to other Clubs. Chairman seems to have gone quiet.

Backtrack  from me as IC has done an interview with the EDP’s Chris Lakey which is up on  their website.   Followed by one with Russell Martin who talks in glowing terms about IC and Cameron King.

I guess Chris Lakey is effectively taking on the role of Head of Media for us, by simply fulfilling his EDP remit. Maybe that makes sense, as IC seems reasonably comfortable talking to him.

Nice to see IC doing an interview. Hopefully many more to come  during the season.

I wonder why the Chairman didn't get involved. He's not usually one to miss such an opportunity.

I suppose he's a busy man at the moment.
