Hope to see a good crowd on Saturday  for the match against newly promoted Holland FC. The reserve support has held up well so far this season but we can always do with a few more people through the gate. Look forward to seeing you there.

General Discussion / Mascot

Mascot Competition

Back in June we announced that the football club would be holding a Mascot Competition for all the local schools in the area, and the winning entry would be made into a life size mascot for the football club. We have had many schools and children from various ages enter the competition, last night all the entries was judged by a panel of Mark Hearle, Robbie Back and Paul Bland the winning entry will be announced at one of the home matches at the end of September and the schools will be invited to attend the game.

The Football club would like to thank all of the schools and children who entered the competition.

Another positive link to the community by the club.

General Discussion / New Groundsman

The Linnets are pleased to announce the appointment of a new groundsman to replace current groundsman Maurice Bunting who is retiring

Martin Skipper was appointed at the weekend by general manager Gary Setchell, Martin is also current groundsman at local Norfolk Alliance Cricket Club North Runcton where he has been groundsman for a number of years.

Should be noted that Setch is still General Manager which I think is significant in the future of the club.

Fair play Mr Chairman, always had a lot of time for the playing staff when I was there.
Does this mean me and Danny 'Beak' Quigley can't get into the speedway for free?
Well done on all your achievements whilst in the driving seat
Jason Lee

Nice one Jason.

The College of West Anglia Sports Campus, based in King’s Lynn, is to launch as an FA (Football Association) and ECFA (England College Football Association) Football Development and Referee Development Hub.

There are 23 Football Development Hubs and 10 Referee Development Hubs nationally. CWA is the only hub in the Eastern Region recognising excellence in promoting and developing football participation, coaching and officiating.

The campus, based at Alive Leisure Lynnsport, has been recognised for its outstanding work over a number of years in developing football in and around Lynn and will now work with the FA and ECFA to continue to improve opportunities for participants aged 12-25 and those who want to develop into a career in coaching or refereeing.

This status provides opportunities for CWA students and stakeholders to contribute to their personal development through volunteering and football qualifications, adding to the value of football development in West Norfolk.

The hub launched on Wednesday (May 11). The day consisted of student activator training, followed by a Team19 small sided football festival delivered by CWA students and closing with CWA’s Elite Football Programme playing Peterborough United at Alive Lynnsport.

The Football Development Hub will work in partnership with representatives from Norfolk FA, ECFA, King’s Lynn Community Football, King’s Lynn Town Football Club, King Edward VII Academy, Alive Leisure and the School Sports Partnership, where all stakeholders are committed to working together to improve football in schools through to adult provision for males, females and those with disabilities.

CWA principal and chair of the Football Development Hub David Pomfret said: “The College of West Anglia is extremely proud to be awarded Football Development Hub status and we are very excited about the opportunities it will create for our students. We look forward to working with our partners to continue to develop football in West Norfolk.”

Lauren O’Sullivan, National Football Development Manager for ECFA, said: “We look forward to continuing our work with the College of West Anglia where football in colleges looks to have a very exciting future and this project should benefit anyone looking to get involved in football in the local community.”

Nice to see this, well done Setch:

Posted on 6th May 2016
King’s Lynn Towns Number One, Alex Street has agreed terms for next season after being one of Lynn’s top performer of the 2015-16 season. Gary Setchell says he is pleased to tie down Alex quickly with his new deal, he will turn out to be one of the best goalkeeper’s at step three level and we are very lucky to have him at the club.

General Discussion / NEW PITCH
« on: May 06, 2016, 02:10:48 PM »
I watched the U18's last night and they lost 1-0 to an excellent and experienced Biggleswade 'Waders' team. The good news it was the last game on the old pitch as it is being dug up today/tomorrow and completely replaced, well done to Setch and Buster. It should be much more durable and give a really good surface. There were some false rumours going about recently that Buster and pulled the plug on this and was only going to put some seed down, obviously not the case.

General Discussion / KEVIN WHITE RETIRES
« on: April 29, 2016, 07:29:28 AM »
Last game of the season on Saturday v. BRAINTREE RESERVES may not attract a good crowd at this stage of the season, however it will be the last game in a Linnets shirt for 'WHITEY'. He has been absolutely outstanding for the Reserves since the club reformed and has had a major influence on the youngsters who have been privileged to play alongside him. As usual last night v. Wivenhoe he gave his usual 90 minutes of all action in very trying conditions. He will be sorely missed by our supporters, players and manager who picked him as 'player of the season'.
Please make an effort to attend his final game and give him a great send off.

General Discussion / LEGENDS HALL OF FAME

The first three members inducted into the King's Lynn Town FC Legends Hall of Fame:


A pleasure to meet Mick Wright who again insisted on going up on his own to collect his award. For photo of the nights winners he again walked up and was as pleased as punch to be with all the young players, big beaming smile. True Legend.
Unfortunately Mal Lindsay could not attend.
Great to see 'Big Jack' being inducted, a modern legend, also a nice touch for Jack to present the award to Mick.
Great night was had by all.

General Discussion / King's Lynn Town Ladies
« on: April 21, 2016, 10:45:18 PM »
Another great step forward by the club.

Posted on 21st April 2016
Lynn ladies are now going to come under the banner of King’s Lynn Town Football Club going into the 2016-2017 season, it is still undecided if the ladies will have to reform and drop down the leagues of the Norfolk Women and Girls Football League or stay in the current division that the occupy.

They hope to play all of their home league games at Lynnsport on the 3G surface but will host Norfolk County Cup matches at the Walks stadium.

The team will be managed by Matt Newman and Louise Coggles will continue to assist with the coaching of the team. Matt said “I see a real good bunch of ladies footballers that need a bit of guidance to improve, I believe with the right coaching and backing from King’s Lynn Town the ladies team could be very successful in the coming season and indeed the future.”

Linnets Reserve manager Robbie Back who has leased with the current ladies them to get them under the King’s Lynn banner is a yet another step in the right direction for the football club, Also with the new link with the King’s Lynn Elite and the new under 16 team it’s important that the club continues to keep making steps into the community and for us to now have a woman’s team gives us more improvements in the structure of the club and the way we want to progress into the future.

First team manager Gary Setchell who was also involved in getting the ladies on board says, “The buzz that the England ladies team is creating after their exploits in the World Cup has seen an increase in women and girls wanting to play the game so it makes sense for us to get involved and have a women’s and girls team, This is something which isn’t going to make the football club any money, It’s all about us linking up more with the community of King’s Lynn it can only bare fruits.”

The Ladies will also wear the colours of King’s Lynn Town Football club, The newly formed team will be holding open trials on Saturday 7th May starting at 12:30, The lowest age you can be to trial out is 16 years of age. Anybody interested can trial on the day or make contact with manager Matt Newman on 07487865738 or via email to

Exciting times
