A little further back R Doughty and Son with George Mallett one of the main drivers. Also recall when Mick Wright was manager the club used Dacks buses 😲

I believe a lad named Pooley used to put the scores up on the scoreboard.

Also vaguely recall another set of alphabet letters down the Tennyson Avenue end of the ground, was it on the wall of the covered standing area opposite the main stand towards the corner flag or in the vacinity??

A couple of great posts there Colin. Its nice to reminisce......also recall Lynn playing Boston United. Hillingdon Borough were another difficult opponent at the time but sadly they didnt fare quite so well

Also remember Bobby Laverick, although I was a small lad at the time I cried when Bobby decided to leave Kings Lynn. The point however regarding Bobby Laverick was that he lived in Vancouver Avenue.............please correct me if I am wrong but I was always under the impression that the football club owned the property together with several other houses in Kings Lynn to include a detached house in York Road where Malcolm Lindsay lived.

When were these properties purchased and could Lynn attract better players with the promise of living accommodation, part time work, whilst also receiving a wage for playing football? Did one or two players run pubs?

Really really sad news.

I always spoke to Ronnie whenever I saw him, he always looked fit and well. I usually asked after Kevin and his wife as I worked for the same company as them and later lived near them in the late 1980s.

I recall Ronnie decorating and wallpapering my parents house when I was young and also remember him playing for Kings Lynn.

My sincerest condolences to you and your family.

RIP Ronnie.

Extremely sad news. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this present time.

Great footballer and a great person too. My memories stretch back to the mid 1960s, I especially recall an evening match when the ball went out of play opposite the main stand, a young lad ran as fast as he could to retrieve the ball but Mick had beaten him to it, the sad look on the young lads face said it all but Mick handed the ball back to the young lad so he could throw it back to Mick again...........absolutely made the young lads night judging by the smile........what a kind and thoughtful gesture from Mick. TRUE GENTLEMAN.

Thank you for all the memories.

R.I.P Mick you will be dearly missed.

Has just left Grimsby

One of the original Heggsy ladderless window cleaner defenders if I recall correctly, still relatively young at 27.

Anyone remember a tall striker called Whittacker he signed whilst Lynn manager, allegedly looked good whilst warming up on the opposition bench!

John Whitney played about five games for Lynn back in the 2001-2002 season. A very accomplished central defender as I recall but I vaguely remember a serious knee injury accounting for his brief stay with Lynn.

Now in charge of Walsall
