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?

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!

News of former Linnets / John Whitney

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
