General Discussion / Re: If the season finishes early.......

Need to look higher up the pyramid.  EFL Div 2 ran one team short this season following the demise of Bury.   This caused issues as every week one team in this League was inactive.  So it should follow a team will move up from the National League.  In turn it would mean one team from either the North or the South National League would move up.

Listening to Stephen Cleeve last night he feels there should be full promotion and relegation based on average points v games played. 

Some important to decisions to be made.  Again the Chairman wants these decisions made quickly.

Anyone know why Bev hasnít done an interview with The Boss.  Normally Bev is bang on with things like that.

Wow where to start on the game today.

Ref total shocker.  Worst Iíve seen in many of Year.   Nowhere near good enough for this level. Was guessing decisions.

As for the game.   Lynn started brightly on what looked a tricky surface.  No idea why the sprinklers were used just before kick off as it made the area near the dugout a little muddy.   We didnít look that comfortable when playing the ball across the back 3/5.

Had a couple of chances, Marriott missing out on a 1 on 1 with the keeper.   The Guiseley  7 looked a handful with pace to burn.   Then disaster as we gifted the visitors a goal with a weak Tom Ward header failing to reach Street.

2nd half saw Lynn really go for it and more chances created for Marriott which before February he would have buried without a 2nd thought,   Subs made and pressure continued thought Guiseley looked dangerous on the break.   The finish just wouldnít come.

I donít think Iíve seen IC so animated as he was on the line today.  Be really good to hear his take on the match in his interview as this could well be the last one of the season. 

Also Was interesting to hear Stephen Cleeve on Radio Norfolk after the game where he discussed the issues facing him and the club going forward.  He said thatís it for the season playing wise.

No full and complete answer to what happens re promotion/relegation.  But does it really matter in the swing of things.
Coach load of Guiseley supporters in the Gatehouse who are in good spirits for the game,

Despite believing the game ( and all others) should be called off we will be attending to give the Club and the Chairman the support he deserves.

Follow the guidelines, stay safe and hope for best and expect the worst.    Football compared to peopleís lives, so brainer.   This is going to touch us all, in some way.

Who else on here is attending today ?

Graham,   I hadnít realised the Government had recommended that all sporting events should be banned.  60,000 turned up to watch Al Bum photo win the Gold Cup yesterday ( nice return there).   So IMHO the National League have just followed guidelines as laid down.   

To me the National League have thrown it back to the clubs to make their own call on playing the games.    Chester decided they werenít prepared to risk the health of their staff and players, while other clubs have decided to press ahead.

How many Clubs at Non League ( and indeed at the lower levels of the pro game) can afford to carry on after this terrible situation goes full circle, remains to be seen.   My hope is that the fans of all these clubs will rally around the owners to allow them to continue, next season.  I will certainly be supporting ours.

Balance from the Press Office at Lynn

Greg Plummer

Iím in total disbelief at the irresponsible decision by the
 not to follow suit and suspend football like other leagues. Tomorrow, Lynn host Guiseley who played Harrogate in a cup competition in midweek. Harrogate have four employees currently under self isolation.

And for balance Chairman comments

Very Interesting article written by a scientist which states that you are more likely to get the virus from a family member in a close environment or a pub than watching an event in a stadium. Looks like this issue could be with us for years.

From the Chairmans twitter

Looks like it will be a decent crowd

Lots of calls from Norwich City fans wanting their football fix - you are more than welcome. Come and support Norfolkís highest Non-League team - a warm welcome awaits
 supporters.  Buy tickets on-line or on the day at the box office

Southport v Gateshead off was because of a trip to Harrogate for a Youth fixture.

Members of the clubís first-team staff travelled to Harrogate Town for a National League U19 Alliance fixture on Wednesday, and thus came into contact with members of Harrogate staff who are now under self-isolation due to COVID-19.

Gateshead Football Club are taking the precautionary measures which have been recommended by Her Majestyís Government, and members of staff who travelled will now be under precautionary self-isolation.

This is a C&P from The Harrogate Town website

It is with regret that we have had cause to apply to The National League for the postponement of our league fixture this evening with Solihull Moors.

We have four employees currently under self isolation and we have a duty of care for the health and wellbeing of players, staff and supporters.
We trust you will support our decision.

This his been accepted by The National League and we have received confirmation this evening's game is OFF.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow KES.  Just reading Harrogate Town have had to call off their game tonight as 4 players have self quarantined.

4 days ago Guiseley played Harrogate

Iím sure Jamie Farr will ensure there are hand sanitizers available around the ground. People supporting the club need to be kept as  safe as possible

Have to agree the toilets were in a disgusting state on Tuesday.

Point taken KES.   Some very valid points you make there.

Anyway the decision has been made letís hope the Club gets well supported, and 3 points are gained.  Be good to see Altrincham do us a favour as well.
