He lost his job, possibly, because he is his own worst enemy.

Could it not be said that he's not the only one?  :dontknow:

Culverhouse does seem to be the common denominator.

Or Chairmen.   :dontknow:

John, what you are attempting to do is very positive, and you know I wish you every success with it.

How good really is Tommy Widrington and is he the right man for next season. In Tommy’s 27 league games we got 26 points. That is 0.9629 points per game on average. Based on that, if he had been here all season, we would have got 42.37 points, so ok under what Aldershot got. Would we have still been relegated? Well maybe, maybe not, I’m just pointing out that his 27 league games (result wise) were not overly impressive.
The one thing that i would question is why he didn’t bring in a goal scorer. Had he have done so, we may have gained that extra place and avoided relegation. Next season will be against teams of a lower quality than we faced this season, so how will we judge him. A lot of people are expecting us to at least be in the play offs and some even think we will win the NLN. Tommy will obviously want to win it, so good luck to him, I just hope he can find a better strike partnership.

My personal opinion is that its worth given him the chance to prove himself.

The .9629 points he achieved could well have been more if he had a full season, as its unlikely he would have let Joe Taylor slip through his fingers.

I've followed Lynn for nearly 60 years, but we do seem to have a small minority of so called supporters who badly let down the club. Like most, I enjoy the wit from the Lynn crowd but these people are scum to be quite honest. They disgust me.


Only one person that can do anything about it as far as the Club is concerned.
But he will look at how many £20+s he will lose if he bans them, not at how many might come back if this matter was dealt with.
I will gamble that it will be allowed to continue and fester.

From what has occurred in the past, I fear that you could be right.

Time will tell.

Anyone going?
Please support any events put on to help the club.
Or just sit back and say the friends do nothing to try to raise funds.  :welcome:

I take the point and would agree that it would be great if events were well supported but maybe bands are not the thing people want to support?  Hopefully a change in genre will provide a change in fortunes but if not then maybe alternative events are the way to go.  Appreciate it is still a bit 'chicken and egg' - the FotL needs to expand it's membership / relevance but without successful, well attended events, whether they be band nights, quizzes or whatever, it will struggle to do so.  Unfortunately the current financial situation for many households, that is only likely to get worse during next season, isn't really going to help things.

I agree, its a difficult one. All the Fotls committee can do is to keep trying.

As you mention, the current financial situation won't help. I believe it could well have a bigger impact on people's lives in the coming months than some currently  realise.

Hopefully these events are well attended and people such as John are supported in their efforts. If that's not the case, I don't think it can just be put down to people not supporting the Club. Many will have more important things on their minds at the moment.

Not very easy to read.

Is that £14 admission for adults?

Can't see what this has got to do with planning permission surely this is an extension of the premises licence that's being requested. Starting to look like a political fight.

Dear Jade

At this time, there is insufficient information included within the submitted documents for this
application to allow this team to accurately and fairly assess the proposal. We have to weigh up
the reasons for this application (clearly to provide additional financial support to the football
club) with the impact of the proposed events, given the location of the stadium in a residential

No elevational plans have been submitted to show the height and design of the stage, likely
heights and locations of speakers and lighting rigs etc and whether any existing structures on site
will aid with attenuation of noise and lighting.

Some idea of the likely events would be of help in our assessments, as these can vary greatly in
terms of bass music (usually the main source of complaint) which comprises low frequency noise
and vibrations. It would have helped if some details had been included in a document, including
some basic considerations of how the impact of such events on the surrounding residents could
be mitigated. Noting the open car park to the front of the site will be used for artists and crew,
this is also likely to be a source of noise and there are currently no physical solid barriers to
reduce noise and lighting.

The hours of opening are listed on the application form as being from 12 noon until 12 midnight
Monday to Saturday inclusive. What are the likely event times? We would recommend having a
maximum end time of 22:30-23:00 hours, given the ‘open-air’ nature of the events and proximity
to dwellings, as consideration is also needed as to the impact after the event closes of persons
leaving the site, waiting to be collected, congregating etc. By reducing the end time of the
event, this would lessen the overall event impact, and ensure the premises was
closed/completely vacated before midnight.

In addition to the above, the applicant should note that this team will require a robust Event
Management Plan document (adherence to which we would require via a planning condition) so
I strongly recommend that they seek professional guidance on how to control noise from
outdoor events, including the preparation for these and likely after event occurrences, and
consideration of the artists area outside the stadium and event goers leaving the site. This
document should include layout of the stage, speaker blocks, lighting, noise mitigation and
attenuation, event types, duration and hours.
Clearly an afternoon event is likely to have less impact than an evening one, and it’s likely a 10+ hour event would have more impact than a 3
hour event. Events requiring crowd participation in any form are also more likely to have a
greater impact. Noise levels for music will need to be controlled, so that at the site boundary
they are at acceptable levels. Such levels would be guided by a noise assessment undertaken by
professionals, and can be discussed with this team following the assessment.

There are gaps where there are entrance/exit points to the site, which will allow noise break-out
at ground floor height. It is possible these could be re-designed to retain noise whilst still
retaining their emergency escape status.

At this stage, due to the lack of information to allow an informed decision, please accept this as a
holding objection. I am not prepared to support approval with conditional requirement for an
EMP; at this stage, whilst there are only four events proposed per year, the open air nature and
close residents are of significant concern.

It is also possible that, if we can reach the stage of having sufficient detail, we would still
recommend a temporary approval ie for one year, allowing ongoing monitoring of events and
giving the possibility of improving issues or preventing further events if they cannot be suitably
controlled to protect residential amenity. I note the NCC Highways Officer would support a
temporary permission.

Thank you.
Kind regards

Article from the Norwich paper:

King's Lynn Town boss in council spat over concert plan

Published: 5:26 PM May 11, 2022
Updated: 6:58 PM May 11, 2022

A bid to use King’s Lynn Town's ground to host concerts has descended in to acrimony after the club’s owner accused a councillor of trying to block the plans.

The Linnets, who were recently relegated, are seeking permission to use The Walks stadium as a concert venue in an effort to help their finances.

The club has lodged the plans with King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Council and has learned that the proposal will have to be considered by the authority's planning committee.

That decision has sparked an online row, with Stephen Cleeve, the club's owner, criticising Christine Hudson, a local councillor.

He accused her of "trying to stop the club in its tracks" and costing it thousands of pounds, by 'calling in' the scheme to be scrutinised by councillors.

Mr Cleeve said: “Local residents have been excellent, however, one councillor, Christine Hudson is trying to stop the club in its tracks.

“Christine Hudson, by calling in the application, has cost the club thousands of pounds on extra legal fees that we cannot afford, her actions speak volumes as to how out of touch she is with the local people of King’s Lynn.”

Mr Cleeve also posted the councillor's publicly available contact details online, and encouraged supporters to contact her directly to show their support for the scheme.

This move was criticised by another councillor, Jo Rust, who urged him to take the details down.

Ms Hudson has been contacted for comment. She told the Lynn News she was not against the application and was willing to help Mr Cleeve if asked.

A petition has now been launched by the club to show support for the planning application, which would see the club permitted to host up to four 'non-football related' entertainment events at The Walks each year. 

In a statement on the club’s website, it said: “It is very important that the club continues to remain economically viable, is able to expand in order to offer more opportunities for both football and other activities to take place.   

“This will enable the club to continue to form an important part of the local community.”

The club has called on the public to visit the ground on Thursday between 9.15am and midday to sign the petition, or to complete a form of its website.

The planning application has said the plans will bring an addition 25 part time jobs, bringing the total number of employees to 45 part-time and one full time.

Can't see what the problem is all  that's being asked for is the stadium to put on 4 concerts a year that they are not requesting events to be held for 365 days a year.

Reading it on the Councils portal, it looks to me that the only problem is that sufficient information has not been supplied. All looks very encouraging apart from that.

It even seems as if they will consider a temporary change of use 1 (year), to see how it goes before committing to a longer term. That seems reasonable to me.

The ball is firmly in the applicant's court. They need to provide additional information to support the application if they want it passed.
