I donít think this issue should be clouded by what Keith Rudd has given to the Club.  His dedication and loyalty to Kings Lynn Football Club has been immense over the years.  This was recognised by his elevation ( attempted or otherwise) to the high office of President.

He might not agree with the way the club is run, but should he then take it upon himself to write letters to KES slating the club and itís senior members.?
Surely There can be no better organisation than the Towns football club to run the Academy and Youth structure within the area.    A path forward to the first team is there now.   Whether players will be good enough to climb those steps is another matter.
So what was wrong with the KL Community Football set up that over the years has supplied a massive amount of players that went on to play for the King's Lynn Youth Team, Reserves and subsequently the first team. The same Community Football programme that had a now USA international player in its ranks.
So someone comes along and threatens last years crop that if they don't jump ship and join King's Lynns Academy then they will never play for any of the King's Lynn teams. BRIBERY.
The same KLTFC that slagged off the coaches at KLCF to then take 2 of them on board! HYPOCRISY.

Did I not read that the said person who turned up didnít inform the club that they had changed their address. I suppose the club should of hired a private investigator to find out why they didnít respond to any notifications that were sent.
Allegedly the mother must have changed her email address!!!!!!!!!!!

Keith Rudd has been long distanced from the club and as he said it was a title made up previously that has never been set in stone.
Therefore although it has been spouted off that he is no longer President he never held that title.
As for not wanting the youth of the area to be given opportunity one thing that Keith has been involved in for many years is bringing on the King's Lynn Community Football scheme to where it is today for KLTFC to then AGAIN start up their own academy threatening certain players in the past that if they did not sign up for the latest scheme or the abandoned one they would never play for KLTFC.
KLCF is not an academy so therefore would not benefit from the financial handouts that a club receives for each player signed on.
Going back to Keith he remembers what happened 13 months ago when the Academy was folded 24 hours before the youngsters that had been signed up were due to start their education and academy duties.
One even turned up on the monday morning with his suitcase as his parents had paid for lodgings for each weekday, having not been informed it was CANCELLED.
If only the HONEST truth was to come out and listening to the Likes of Keith being as worried as he is that this is not about education and coaching this is about HOW MUCH MONEY CAN WE GET FROM THE FA!

And finally Loopy Linnet very concerned that you have come out from hibernation knowing exactly what Keith Rudd has done for KING'S    LYNN FC in previous guises, the youth of the area and football in general.

I have had nothing to do with chasing sponsors but yes there are lots of sponsors over at Heacham including the company that were approached to be main sponsors at KLTFC at an exhorbitant cost.

Yes Blue and Gold. When we severed our ties with the new KLTFC in april 2019 we were immediately contacted by numerous local clubs who were aware of the commitment we had with King's Lynn more so since 2002. Along with my partner Graham we decided to sponsor Heacham Fc, King's Lynn Community Football (that according to O'Neills was Kings Lynn Town FC)and also The College of West Anglias Sports Campus. Knowing what we know now this has been an amazing near 18 months for Double G and the feedback has been amazing.
Again we are appreciated just like the old days at the Walks.All of the new sponsorships are for a 3 year term and hopefully this can be extended.
Senior football at Heacham, seeing the youth of the King's Lynn area thriving at KLCF despite attempts to scupper it and seeing the students at the sports campus getting further education and the opportunities to go with it. HAPPY DAYS.

Why not? Their supporters club went over the 100 applications on Saturday. Not bad for less than 4 weeks in the making. Yes over 100 for little old Heacham.

Perhaps the tie up came about because little old Heacham have 3G facilities as well as 2 full size pitches.
Well and truly used now with the amount of teams using it.
Lynn Ladies will be playing their home games at Heacham this season.
In respect of saturdays game, ex Linnet Nathan Daw had a great game and the evergreen Jack Defty took advantage of the keeper spilling in the ball to calmly blast home.
Club also supplied a great programme for their first shot at senior football.
And yes a bottle of water is 50p and the pasties looked like pasties.

General Discussion / Saturday at Heacham FC
« on: September 10, 2020, 07:43:06 PM »
For those looking to get to watch some football, saturday is a great opportunity to get down to see Heacham FCs home debut in the Anglian Comb Premier against Gorleston Reserves. Heacham started off last saturday away to very established Bungay by spanking the home team 7-1. Heacham have a few ex Linnets on the books including Jack Defty, Nathan Daw, Alex Clunan and the likes of Ross McNeil in the dug out.
Look forward to seeing some of you there. You won't be diussappointed and for example a bottle of water is 50P NOT £2!!!!!!!

General Discussion / Saturdays 1st team and Reserves fixtures-any feedback?
« on: September 07, 2020, 07:55:13 PM »
Looking at the forum there is nothing about the 1st team game at Royston and also the Reserves/U21 first home game against Framlingham.
Anyone go to either?

Adrian Flux have actually been sponsors of the ladies team for several seasons. This NOT a new sponsorship. I take it as renewal.
No doubt it will cost them substantially more than previous seasons.

Call me naive etc but I see the good in everything our club is trying to do to take it forward etc
But as a season ticket holder and non drinker I canít see  why joining would benefit me  , I know itís hard to see forward regarding Covid etc but other perks could of been discounted away travel or  off a meal before a game , or off any events the club may hold ... shame as it potentially can be a good idea

BB, I don't think it is naÔve, more a case that I don't think this scheme is marketed at you, or rather season ticket holders in general. 

I would imagine there are a number who haven't renewed / purchased season tickets this season who can still see the value in paying 'something' to secure some reassurance that they can still get in on a match day in the likely event that attendances are restricted throughout the season.  For me I think it is priced 'top end' (big surprise for KLTFC!) but that is maybe because I won't benefit from any of the discounts but in all likelihood will still buy one. 

Fully take KES80's point that it makes a match ticket a bit more pricey but (without wishing to open another debate about the current regime's capability / business plan) the club needs fans to back it and this is one way that we can do that.  Going back to KES80's early point about what else could be offered in the membership scheme - maybe now is the time to ask how many are prepared to give to the club without something material in return?
TOP END (big surprise!
 Really?
According to the last podcast,yes my first time to actually listen in before i fell asleep, bored), tickets prices are HALF what they actually should be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I new Burnham Market was the Chelsea of Norfolk but sounds like KLTFC are the Chelsea Fc of Norfolk.

Stowmarket ask for no Linnets fans to attend tomorrow, hope people are responsible enough to follow the request

The U18s and U23s are both at Heacham FC tomorrow (2pm and 2-30pm) if people want to see the Linnets of the future (or so i have been told).

Well who would think a garment would cost that on the low volumes the club would be able to purchase.
He who thinks he knows everything but knows nothing. Strange that the new training shirt is £45 when it is the same fabric as used for all football shirts, polyester!

Unless i have missed something it is very quiet on the forum regarding why the 1st team game did not go ahead on saturday at Bishops Stortford or any details regards the U21s defeat at Norwich United.
Yes i know they are billed as friendlies but a little detail for those who have not seen the EDP today would be helpful as to what sort of team was put out at Norwich.

Well I'm going along with a lot of the other posts. I am not going to buy a season ticket. The club seems to be making up its own laws.
Getting rather fed up with , Give, Give, Give, all the time. Time the club started to show some respect for the fans, and stopped thinking they are made of money.
Don't hold your breath Mac!
