Not sure if I can make New Years Day, who is doing the collection for the pitch. Trust or FOTL?  Will they take a cheque, or Bacs payment, payable to who?

I think Mick held the record for most appearances for 1 club , after we signed him from Northampton, well over 1000 games for Lynn, old fashioned inside forward, or half back. Top player. Very nice bloke. R.I.P Mick.

Please see my former post about the 3rd of the pitch in the shadow of the main stand this time of the year. It will not dry out until March, frosts will not thaw like the rest of the pitch. I offered a 3 figure donation to help to pay for a cover of some type, greeted with a stony  silence from all fronts. The money is out there, and I am not talking about SC paying out again.

Its strange that we all have different opinions on todays game, I suppose it depends on where we sit/stand etc. Mallards review on Gash is different to mine, I thought he was off the pace today from the 1st minute, ok the pitch was heavy but for some reason in the last couple of months he thinks he can dribble past every defender, well he does not have the speed to do that, also he is getting caught offside even more than Marriot, now that is an achievement. Its not just my opinion, its many in the main stand. I would like to see Hawkins more upfront, defenders do not like players with real pace running at them, Hawkins has the lot, a game changer.  No Kelly today, anyone know why, or have I missed something?

It's that time of the year when we are prone to getting the part of the pitch in the shadow of the main stand frozen when ever we get 2 or 3 days/nights of heavy frost. It does not get any Sunlight. It has cost us money with postponements in the past. Let's get some sort of cover for this. Perhaps the trust would be willing to help with a few quid, I shall put in a 3 figure sum. What do you think?

Don't forget the wooden rattle, my grandad gave me his, painted blue and yellow, with A.R.P. etched on it. I knew the war was good for something.

B and G, adults a shilling (5p) for me it was sixpence, 2 1/2 p, the programme was a sickly yellow colour and was 3p, this was 1960. And we would have  3P cup of tea from one of the small tea bars on each end of the small stand.

Nigel, you are not wrong, I used to go with my father in the 50s and early 60s, we would stand behind the goal at the hospital end, which in those days  was well banked, with a huge scoreboard, at times to would climb the ladder onto the score board and sit on the walkway, great view! At times it would be so packed, the children were allowed to sit on the grass, at their own risk of course. while we are talking about attendances the last full season we had in the northern section, Blue Square , our average attendance was 987, which was second best, and we finished 17th! We do have 2 big paydays to come, Boston and York, but if we stay in contention there is no reason we should not get 1200/1400 most games, for 15 its great value. Quick comment on last night, we have to find room for Kelly and Carey. Well done lads.

General Discussion / Sam Kelly
« on: November 11, 2019, 07:49:44 PM »
I am becoming a fan of Sam Kelly, when he came on against Altrincham he made the difference, by running at their defence and put some great balls in the box, in fact he made the second goal. He was harshly given a yellow card in the last minute (right in front of me) for a foul where their player just fell over. he has also provided assists in the last few days. I think he is a talented player and he does not look out of place in our midfield. Carey is another player who can do the business, Some of our players are predictable with their passing, if we are looking for a make shift striker when Gash is suspended, what about Ross Burrows, he looks like he can play anywhere, and can head a ball, as well as a good passer.  Just ideas.  Brett McNamara has been mentioned on other posts, well he was a full back, came to Lynn as a striker, scored a hat full of goals.  Does anybody agree?

This post is getting silly, if you have an account on E-bay or Amazon, or similar sites, do you give your proper name to these? You are asking for trouble if you do, account hacking comes to mind, and also there is such thing as data protection, but if that doesn't bother you then good luck.

Well done the youth team, it would be great if they could get a league outfit on the walks. Is there cash involved in the youth cup, does anybody know?
