Spot in WLM.  Inch perfect ball from Carey to Jones. Mazza half a yard on the defender.   Back of the net.

Think we got away with one though for the first goal. Suggestion of a hand and defo Southwell was way offside.

Reading in yesterdayís NLP the suggestion is that the monies will be spilt 55% to the National League with 45% going to the North and South.   

Monies given will be based on attendance levels ( based on last year ?). However there will
Allowances made ( and uplift) for the Promoted Clubs.   This should put us around halfway in the adjusted attendance League table.

The average payout per Club will be circa 80k per month.  As we are right in the middle of the table thatís what we can maybe expect to receive.

If you amortise that over a complete 9 month season then thatís around 720k. Factor in things like Shirt sponsorship ( biggest in clubs history) TV, Streaming (£12 a pop) Board sales, Prog Adverts and sales. Etc.   Then maybe not short of the magical £1m mark.

I think on a recent podcast SC stated it took 650-700k to run the Club per annum. Will the suggested extra 300-350k give the Club the chance to mount a serious promotion challenge?   All thanks to Boris.

The above Figures obviously donít include any amount that SC sticks in himself.

Very fair summary Tony.  Still think the ex Norwich  Centre Half Is coming in from Sligo when their season ends in 3 games time. With   The Squad numbers We are missing a No 4.

On the subject of Hendo I wonder if he is having any regrets.  Two 4-1 defeats since he joined The Greens.  Have a feeling he would have enjoyed himself last night.

Yes I noticed that Mac.  Seemed to show that weather beaten flag every time they went to a break.

Did you watch it on BT M Hill or do you get another ringside Seat ?

Dilly, strange how people see the same game through different eyes.   I thought  Jarv had an excellent game.   He did what he always does and made the game look simple.  As for  King, great player at this level but if anything he tried to do to much.  Looked over eager to make his mark.

Be interesting to see who becomes our regular keeper.  Street didnít do much wrong.  Think Mair will get the nod at some point and will make the Jersey his own.

Arron Jones, for me was outstanding.  Best game Iíve seen him have in Lynn colours.  Ditto Brown on the other side. Quality.   McAuley gave his all and was a rock. Smith... jury is out for me on him.  Got caught a couple of times with long punts down the middle.  Badly at fault on the 2nd goal.  Never looks  that comfortable with the ball at his feet.  The new lad from Sligo Rovers is needed.

Richards  ran his gonads off for the cause but was badly matched up in the box for Yeovilís first goal and never even got off the ground.   Power never really got the chance to use his pace, but we all know what he has in his locker.  Kelly put a decent shift in.  Couple of efforts from distance.  Did ok.

Southwell was certainly the man on the spot for our first goal, even if he was yards offside.   Not a huge fan.   Carey coming on made a massive impression with the game stretched.   Should have scored with just the keeper to beat.    Marriott did what Marriott does. One chance, one goal. Quick brain, quick feet.  2-2.

We certainly missed a fit Gash.  He would have held things up for us and brought others into play in the final 3rd.  Plus I would suggest he would have been the one to pick up their centre half for the first goal.  I would bet money he wouldnít have had that free header.

Loads of plusís and plenty where we can and will improve.   We will grow into this League with experiencing a few games.

What a great evenings entertainment.  Well done to the players, the Manager, his backroom staff and of course Stephen Cleeve for making it all happen.

Wow.... where do you start with our first game at this level.

Loads to admire and Iím sure loads to work on.

The one big thing that the night showed was we can compete at this level.

Ollie Bayliss

The National League has secured £10 million of funding for the first 3 months of the season.

After that, the situation will be reviewed.

The League believes this "is to allow for the possibility of crowds being allowed back into stadiums on some basis as the season progresses."

Have to be more than happy with that.

Thanks New.   I think itís the Trophy we play in.

If this programme proves a success it Might be good to see a bumper one produced every couple of months, if the lockout of supporters continue.

Great fund raiser for the Club.  Great initiative from the Chairman. 

Will this be a one off as itís the first game at National League,  or will there be one for each home game ?

Be good to hear people thoughts on the programme.

Having just read that IC is looking to bring another new face then donít think that there will be any restrictions on players joining clubs tied to the Government hand out

It said Ďaroundí 3M, so who is to say it might even be over that figure.  Think Lynn should be looking at 40k plus.   We are around the 22nd best supported club in the 66 team structure.  So should look to be. In the top 33% of payouts.

3m divide by 66 clubs comes out around the 45k mark

The 10k figure was mentioned on an SC podcast in response to Tony Mís comments on the forum.

Optimistic KES in terms of what the Government handout will be or that the Club will get 47k per month ?
