General Discussion / Researching former players
« on: May 29, 2020, 09:13:32 AM »
I have had a couple of enquiries recently from people researching former players.
If anyone has any information please can you DM me and I will pass it on?

First: Graham Thomson. He is, as far as we know, Lynn's youngest first-team player making his debut on  Tuesday, May 3rd 1955 against Bradford City Reserves at the age of 15 years 9 months and 5 days.
He went on to sign for Spurs as a youth team player. Does anyone know of him?

Second: Peter McCall. He had a successful career with Oldham and Hereford but is said to have attended KES in Lynn.
Peter passed away in February.
An article in the Bristol Post suggests he was scouted playing for Lynn and joined Bristol in 1952 - which means he would have been 15-16 years old.
I doubt that this was for Lynn first team but might have been for the Reserves or at schoolboy level. Unfortunately, the lack of access to the library rather hampers any research.

Clubs have until May 7th to vote on whether or not all remaining fixtures should be cancelled.
Then if that is approved it is a matter of voting on the options, which I don't believe have been published yet, on how to end the season.

“Null and void won’t be on the table. It will not be an option”  according to Harrogate Town managing director Garry Plant, quoted in the Yorkshire Post.

Interesting view from Dover Athletic Chairman:
"Dover Athletic chairman Jim Parmenter has spoken of the ‘staggering self-interest’ from some quarters with regard to the possible fate of the current National League season.
With the COVID-19 outbreak suspending the season with the majority of games played, Parmenter said in an official statement: “Many of you will know I am involved in the governance of the National League, so my thoughts on how league matters should be brought to conclusion must remain my own for the time being, but I do intend to speak out when the time is right.
“All I can say is that I find the staggering self-interest being displayed by those who can afford to continue to pursue gain from the season by threatening legal action if they don’t get their own way against good people trying to do their best in unprecedented circumstances disgusting beyond further words.”

To quote the home page:
"To raise funds to enable the Trust to be in a position to purchase a stakeholding in the club, thus ensuring democratic supporter representation in the running of the club and that funds raised are used appropriately to benefit the long term stability and future of KLTFC for its supporters and the community."

Saying that it was interests of the Trust that the club does not survive was without foundation.

I didn't delete the part of the text that you refer to. It must have been admin which raises the question as to why would they delete it?
The post was moderated because it seemed to be a deliberate attempt to provoke.
Obviously it was not moderated soon enough.
