General Discussion / 856 Foundation
« on: September 11, 2021, 10:13:34 AM »
I'm assuming someone at the club will be mentioning the 856 foundation on camera today?

Yesterday was suicide prevention day. (according to twitter)  and i see no better place than a football ground to highlight this cause that is so personal to so many of us.

Lee was my friend as well.  From breakfast club at BNI, to a pint in the Nap many a year ago and a few away days when i first moved up here. Like you,  I found friendship on the terraces at The Walks.  Lee was one of the blokes in the group i made friends with when i first started going to watch King's Lynn. They turned out to be collectively called the 856, yes I had to ask.........

For many of you, it was for much longer and your friendships will be much stronger, but what i do know is that today could be an extremely fitting tribute to Lee and show the club and therefore the Town in an extremely good light.

The town has shown it's love for him in it's outpouring of grief when we lost him,  today, the football family can show the football world not just what Lee meant to us, but also that's it is ok to be not ok. And it is,  good to talk.

It is good to talk and talking with mates at football has saved many a soul over the generations.  It's where we bond, we come together and get behind our team. We can forget our worries and let it all out for an hour or two. 

I'm not sure what would look like at The Walks today,  it could come in the form of banners at pitchside and a few words from the chairman in one of the televised snippets,  it could at 8 minutes and 56 seconds,  applause rings out throughout the ground....... It may come as a chant, in UNISON,  all I know is that today is an opportunity to honour a friend and highlight a bloody good cause and the 856 foundation that has been launched in lee's memory.

General Discussion / Football Injuries
« on: August 24, 2021, 11:22:38 AM »
Hi

Every Saturday from around 11am through till around 4.45pm and again on Sunday Mornings, hundreds, if not thousands of local people are in parks, fields and stadia watching or playing football and other high impact sports.

Every weekend, without fail, the A & E department will see quite an influx of visitors with sprains, breaks and fractures and head injuries sustained by people playing the beautiful game.

Our hospital however, regardless of how brilliant the staff and service provision given, is crumbling and is now very dangerous with over 200 props holding up the roofs in public access areas.

Wards have had to close to be made safe and it's getting worse.

There is a petition that requires 10,000 signatures to get a response from the Government. 

This petition needs just 380 more signatures to get that response.

Can i ask, that as a club,  we help push this over the line today. If you haven't signed, please do so.

Then share the petition link via email, WhatsApp, Fb, Linkedin etc and get this done today.

If you administer an email group, or FB group,  share this YET AGAIN with a personal plea if that's what it takes.


Thanks in advance

Let's just get this done.

General Discussion / Everton Away

Can't believe this hasn't had more views.

FA Cup, 1961/2

And it was never a penalty.

General Discussion / BT Sport coverage
« on: October 04, 2020, 09:23:48 AM »
Sitting watching the game and watching what happened to social media trends when you searched for #kingslynn all I can say is that the club were an absolute credit to the town yesterday.

To see so many nice things being said about the football played and the  match in general was genuinely heart warming.

Congratulations to everyone who made yesterday what it was, and to Ian Culverhouse, you legend.
