 :oldman" :farmer: Local lad, but sad to say out of his depth, and he will be found out quickly by the better quality of player at the present level we play at. More beef needed in the middle of the park.  :farmer: :oldman"

All good ideas. Certainly a need to decrease prices for oaps and under 18s. I know several regular elderly attenders who are not going anymore due to a combination of factors in part fear of covid, increasing ill health but also due to high prices. Perhaps a scheme could be introduced for regular fans a 3 match ticket. Buy tickets for two  matches at full price and get third free. Surely it is better to have more home fans in ground they will spend money on drinks etc

 :farmer: :oldman" Pricing needs reducing for all, not just a few, l stayed away due to price yesterday. I could afford to attend but have decided not to attend due to total amount needed to fund my afternoon at the Walks. I await all the comments about not buying food or drink or a programme,I live out of town so need transportation to matches and car parking charges and I consider this all part of the experience but there is a ceiling as to what I am prepared too pay and KLTFC have now passed that mark.  :farmer: :oldman"

Dazzle - Have something to eat and drink at home.  Saves money AND queuing Ö.

 :oldman" :farmer: When attending matches,food and drinks are all part of the day for me and my family, Iím not saying I canít afford the prices , Iím just saying  I donít feel I can warrant paying it.  :oldman" :farmer:

Very much so, those that can't and those that won't.

 :oldman" :farmer:  I have been supporting Kings Lynn FC, since the early Seventies and I must say I am firmly of the opinion that the pricing structure this season is too expensive, I have not been able to decide whether to attend matches this season. At this moment I am swaying towards not attending, I really have supported Mr Cleeve in a lot he has done for KLTFC, however I feel that I can not justify the money it would cost me in travel, entrance, program and possibly food and drinks. I am really undecided, only a few days before the season starts, but PRICING NEEDS LOOKING AT.
    GOOD LUCK TO IAN, PAUL AND THE BOYS ON THE PARK FOR THE SEASON.

 :farmer: :oldman" I have to say that I have not been over impressed with the players we have recruited, all the talk of players from the league being available for a lot less money, seems to have passed KLTFC . We seem in most cases to be recruiting from lower leagues. I am not saying that this is wrong as we have benefitted in recent accusations, but I really thought with all these players available we would have seen mostly NL standard players arriving maybe with an odd league player. In Ian we must Trust.

Hi Dazza, is July the 16th not before the possible next lifting of restictions which i work out as being the 19th unless there is serious drops in infection rate which doesn't look good at the moment.
Hi Gordon , I did state hopefully we will be able to sell out all the tickets we are allowed, subject to COVID-19.
Things change daily at the moment with this government and Covid-19, letís wait and see.

Hartlepool return to the EFL.  They beat Torquay 5-4 on pens after a 1-1 draw aet.   Torquay drew level in the 95th min when their keeper came up for a corner and headed the flag kick in.

The first 4 penalties were also missed or saved.

Dazza surely we have to thank Stephen Cleeve and his deep pockets for getting us to the pinnacle of Non League Football.    So letís be careful what we wish for.   Without his input and financing we could well still have been at Step 3

I see recall he has put in somewhere around 150k a year.   A real drop in the ocean compared to the likes of Man City and Chelsea, but he still put it in.

Agreed Mall, but in each season we have been promoted since the UCL,there have been bigger, better supported and better financed clubs than ourselves. York City and Chester City are the first two I can think of at this moment for example.

I know it's a ruthless, dog eat dog league dominated in more ways than one, by the wealthy clubs, but I am not a fan of sides that spend absurd amounts and effectively buy their way up the leagues...

Agree with you Kes, although I don't mind the clubs spending big if the money has come from what the Club has generated themselves. That way, they will naturally find their own level.

Sooner or later the Clubs that buy their way up the league, run out of steam. Usually big fish in little ponds to start off with, but within a couple of seasons they become small fish in a bigger pond.

Even if the amount of money being put into these Clubs each season remains the same, it will be insufficient to maintain the momentum the Clubs have had in previous seasons.

This can then lead to the floating supporters losing interest, so gates fall. The Benefactor (s) issues the "use it or lose it" warning, loses interest when the Supporters don't respond and the penny finally drops (or runs out of money themselves), and the Club is then on the slippery slope.

Clubs are hungry beasts. Once they have been fed, you can't just stop feeding them without experiencing an adverse reaction.

 :oldman" :farmer: I have to agree with you guys, but this happens in all the leagues from premier down. Chelsea and Man City were 2nd division sides who flouted with odd spells in the top flight of football when I was a child, now they are massively benefactor funded clubs, buying trophies for the cabinet. Closer too home Histon, St. Neots, AFC Hornchurch all had money too burn at one point but then the bubble burst. Hornchurch are now rebuilding again but will they have as much money as before?  Blackburn won the premier league with Jack Walkerís money, where are they now ? at a level more suited too them, I would say. As you say, self funded clubs are no issue for me either, but just buying trophies to me takes away some of the joy and pain that football meant to me as a child. :farmer: :oldman"

 :scarf: Daniel Farke will be bringing his 1st team players to the Walks on July 16th with a 7pm kick off.
Hopefully this will put a few pennies back into the club. This will be Norwichís first pre season friendly and hopefully a sell out match for KLTFC. I feel confident we will be able to sell all the tickets we are allowed to sell with these being near neighbours, hopefully COVID-19 restrictions will be easing and a good evening can be had by all.  :scarf: :farmer: :oldman"

 :oldman" :farmer: Ryan Jarvis has returned to his old stomping ground at Lowestoft, a quality player who I am sure will still have a big influence on games.  :oldman" :farmer:

Name some players over the years who came through  reserves.

Mark Howard 80s Andy Hunt 90s both went on to play football league.

Defty bros would have played a lot of res football before breaking into the first team.

We've also seen many reserves step up to effectively become the first team for short or not so short spells over the years when a manager has left and a large swathe of his first team have followed him!

But as others have said never has the gap between first and reserves in terms of divisions been as great as it is now. How many other full time National league sides have a second string playing in a step 6 league? The times are a changing at the Walks for sure.

 :farmer: :oldman" Shaun Frowhawk, many reserve games and a few for the 1st team.

 :oldman" :farmer:  Nice to see GASHY has found a nice local club close to his home . I feel he is better than the level he is going to be playing at , but he has been there, done it and collected the medals too prove it. Peterborough North Stars gain in a big way.  Good luck GASHY and thanks for the memories, you will always be welcome at KLTFC and hopefully we will get to see you again soon. :oldman" :farmer:

 :farmer: :oldman" I would definitely be happy to see a fit Cameron back next season, however I do feel there is more to this. It is easy to say a role with the academy or scouting or indeed any other role but, this all costs money and money is what we are struggling to generate at this moment in our history.  A fit Cameron lining up at 14.55 on a Saturday in front of the main stand is what I think we would all like too see, but personally I have my doubts. Come on Cameron prove me wrong. :oldman" :farmer:
