Looks like it hasnít taken long to start spending the windfall.   My Crystal ball
Is giving me the name Mitchell.... Kairo.  Although of course he wonít be ready to go again Saturday. 

Will the ball prove to be right ?  I think Iím close to the Mark with this one
Well done Mallard now announced, but who is the Lynn player shown the door?

On Notts C Twitter the are showing a Link to KLTFC Streaming. They also mention that they (Notts C) are getting 50% of the Stream money.
With an 84K monthly windfall starting next week might i suggest that streaming is now FREE as a thank you to the loyal supporters.
I will get my hardhat out ready for the flack!

Well...I am sorry to say that...whilst people are fighting for their lives fighting for their livelihoods, the fact that football clubs will now come out with a handsome little profit....while all along the people that would normally ensure that they made that profit cannot get through the disgusting.
I wish no team any harm or administration....but this Is taxpayers money being harnessed in the wrong direction.
Spot on Dilligaf. How the government can justify this amount of money to so many clubs that were on the brink way before Covid(and not for the first time) when coach companies,(unless transporting football teams) theatres, cinemas etc are on the verge of extinction through no fault of there own.
The number of businesses that had a strong business prior to Covid , now seeing the rug being pulled out.
Perhaps Cleeve will now leave his Mickey Mouse political party and jump on the Boris bandwagon!
On the other hand if this is also part lottery funding i think that if the general public are aware they will be disgusted and possibility think of placing there money elsewhere.
I suppose the only good will be in football in general that all the little suppliers will be paid ON TIME. They won't hold their breath.

From my experience of hiring the Corn Exchange for my charity events, unless there are 100 tickets sold it will not be cost effective.
Yes drink prices are not cheap but i would think on a par with KLTFC. They will have to have stewards whatever the head count is. With staff costs to serve on tables, stewarding etc this could possibly be a red herring and i suppose YOU council tax payers will pick up the bill.
Hopefully for the supporters sake i am proved wrong.

Wasn't aware of that.
Downham have lost several of the previous committee including the lady chairperson, several players who have left and gone to Gayton etc and all does not sound rosey over there at the moment.
I actually went to the Swaffham V Fakenham FA Vase game as a neutral as they are both good customers of mine. game ended 2-2 and Fakenham then won on penalties. Very entertaining afternoon and certainly personel from both clubs made me very welcome.

General Discussion / saturday v Solihull Moors

ex linnet flying winger Ryan Beswick(was he a Heggs player) was at Solihull. Any ideas if he still is as there seems to have been a big clear out

believe what you want Mallard but one of us is telling a pack of lies, not for the first time.

I am in contact with Mark Hearle and he is getting back to me about cost. (See, they do answer.)

I shall buy at least one, possibly two if price is OK.

I think you will find that the cost of these flags is similar to the cost of replica shirts. Therefore working along the Chairmans logic, it should only set you back by a couple of quid.

If so they will be between 50p and a £1 as spouted in the Royston clubhouse early 2019?

Biggest, 2nd biggest. Does it matter a whole heap of beans Gordon ?  Itís all extra going into the pot.

Despite your indifference to SC and Club did you tune in ?
Of course! Why would i not. I have no problem with the team.
Listening in on Radio Norfolk tonight also. Been going through that gate since 1962. I and many others have seen it all but not everybody  has had the pleasure/displeasure.
Yes there is a difference between biggest and second biggest. I was just stating that it is again incorrect to say this sponsorship is the biggest.

Do you believe everything you read .
The only thing BIGGEST was the amount that was asked of numerous potential sponsors. 36% of that was allegedly agreed, so take it from me i know one company who sponsored for more.

Great to see the amount of sponsors that Maidenhead list at the end of the email. Very impressive.

perhaps their arms were not twisted far enough up their backs to sign on, with the threat of never playing for King's Lynn if they didn't.
Surely they should be dual registered if they are also helping out Downham reserves.
£7 concession, no thanks. There will be football league grounds AGAIN cheaper than that.
God help us if we get through and draw Manchester Utd youth. We will have to win the lottery to pay to see it.
