General Discussion / Street departs
« on: October 30, 2020, 11:16:13 AM »
From Home page:

Linnets 'keeper Alex Street has left King's Lynn Town after finding himself second choice to the on-loan Archie Mair.
The 29 year old joined the club when it reformed in 2010 and although not always forst choice 'keeper in the early years he persevered and went on to make 466 appearances for the Linnets, keeping 139 clean sheets, picking up the Southern League Golden Glove Award for the most clean sheets in season 2018-19.
Archie Mair's league debut in the 5-0 defeat against Solihull ended Street's run of first choice for league games that started on 19th March 2017, and lasted 129 league games.
He leaves The Walks with the record of having made the most appearances for a Lynn goal-keeper, beating Billy Bedwell's record of 378 that was set in the period 1922-33.


The biggest (or maybe the 2nd biggest) loss to the Club since its been reformed.

I've not seen anything in our new signing to justify this, but then again I'm just a supporter and not the Manager.

So what happens if City call Mair back, or when he's on international duty?

Bastock, or have we got one coming in?

General Discussion / Mcfadden

From Home page:

It has been announced online that Kyle Callan-McFadden has apparently agreed to sign for Lynn from Sligo Rovers when the Irish Premier Division fixtures reach completion, the final matches set to be played on the 8th of November.
The 25 year old (b. 20.4.95) who can play as a centre-half, right-back and in midfield joined Norwich City's Academy at the age of 16 as a first year scholar in the summer of 2011 having impressed in trials.
McFadden began with Irish side Swilly Rovers with whom he was capped at Republic of Ireland Under-16 level and he then received further caps with Norwich at Under 17 level.
He helped the Canaries win the FA Youth Cup playing in both legs of the final against Chelsea.
He made his first team debut for the Canaries on 28 July 2014 in a friendly against OGC Nice and his professional debut in Norwich's 3–1 League Cup second round victory against Crawley Town in August 2014, playing the full 90 minutes.
He was released by Norwich at the end of the 2014–15 season but later played for Ireland's Under-21s.
He moved on to join Orlando City B in October 2015 moving on to Sligo at the beginning of December 2016.
Apart from playing for the Canaries, McFadden also has links with Norfolk via his wife who has family in Tasburgh.
It is reported on loi-gc.com/ that his family have already moved to the UK.
“If fans come to see me they can expect to see hard tackles, powerful heading, and a player that’s good with the ball at his feet,” Callan-McFadden is quoted as saying in an On The Ball City match-day programme.


Well, he's certainly told us what to expect! 

I'm not sure if Sligo are still in their Cup Competition, but if they are, then 8th November may be a bit optimistic!

General Discussion / Game for a laugh.

When 84k a month and a 9k FA Cup bye is not enough.

I don't do Twitter, but just had this sent to me. I guess it's just showing that the Chairman has a sense of humour and is enjoying a laugh with the County supporters.

Such a Wag!

General Discussion / Double signing for Lynn
« on: October 22, 2020, 07:38:58 PM »

King’s Lynn Town are pleased to announce the signings of central defender Danny Lupano and forward Kairo Mitchell.

Belgian born Danny, who is 20, joins the club on loan from Hull City, initially for one month, after a similar spell in Northern Ireland with Derry City last season. Moving to England at 16 Danny joined Solihull Moors before joining Birmingham City in 2018. After leaving Birmingham he joined Hednesford Town before having trials at Wolves, Leicester and Hull where he put pen-to-paper on a professional deal.

23 year old striker Kairo joins after a brief spell with Dartford in the National League South. Kairo started his career with his hometown club Leicester City and on release he joined Nuneaton Borough and then Coalville Town before joining Dartford on the eve of the new season after impressing as a trialist in pre-season. Kairo has made 7 appearances for the Grenada national team, scoring 3 goals.

Speaking on the signings, Director of Football Robbie Back commented “We are really pleased to bring in both Danny & Kairo. We have been looking for a front man now for a few weeks after losing Gashy with illness and hearing he could be out for a few more months. Kairo will bring in something different to the other strikers we have and gives us another attacking option. He played well against us for Coalville a few years ago so we know what he can do.

We wanted to bring in another defender with Aaron Jones picking up a knee injury but thankfully this is not as bad as first feared. Danny did very well for Derry last season and there were keen to take him back again on loan. We would like to thank Hull City for their assistance in the signing”

The club would also like to place on record their thanks to Jake Smith and all those at the Dukes Head Hotel in King’s Lynn for their assistance with the signing of Danny.

General Discussion / Financial help from Govt looks unlikely
« on: September 24, 2020, 06:32:18 PM »
Have to say that this from the BBC seems strange when NL statement is taken into account. 
:dontknow:

Elite sport will be expected to "look at ways in which it can support itself" through financial difficulties arising from the absence of fans, the UK sports minister has told Parliament.

Nigel Huddleston said the government understood the recent restrictions put in place would "cause financial difficulties" to sports, but that the focus would be directed to "those most in need".

Football governing bodies have warned of "profound" and "severe" consequences from the loss of matchday revenue.

The Chairman has just released his latest, extra long, Podcast.

There's lots in there for Supporters to consider.

One of the subjects was the decision made by the Chairman, apparently backed by Mark Hearle and Rob Back, is to remove Keith Rudd as the President of the Club. By listening to it, I believe that it appears that the decision was made by the three of them due to what is apparently seen as a negative attitude towards the Club's Academy and their tie-up with Kes.
