One of the greatest of the greats.

"People talk about legends sometimes very loosely. With Jimmy, you can use that word consistently because he was that wherever he played - his sublime goalscoring ability, his finishing and the character that he was".

"It's a shame and it's hard because the world is still a little bit in recovery mode at the moment. It has been hard on people to fork out to come and I understand everyone's problems....................".

Maybe you should consider discussing this particular point with your Boss then Ian.   :dontknow:

"Beyond London, swathes of the east coast of England, near Scu*thorpe, Hull and Grimsby, south past Skegness to King’s Lynn are all at threat from flooding in the next 10 years".

We're definitely going to need a bigger boat!

It’s been looking like a Ghost town at Walks recently. but that’s all changed today.

Chairman is there and it looks as if he must be entertaining some visitors. Some nice looking cars parked there.

Another White Knight?

Hearing that Lynn Lad Taylor is tearing Wroxhams opponents apart today, with 2 goals in first 15 minutes (Wroxhsm 3 up).

I don't know him myself but reports are that "he's a real handful for a little one".


General Discussion / Match preview for Alfreton
« on: August 07, 2021, 10:03:05 AM »


Alfreton Town have had a pre-season to remember, thus far. Managed by Andrew Clarke, the side recorded a valuable 3-2 win over fellow National League side, in Chesterfield FC. The side went on to better that scoreline by overcoming the challenge of League One side Burton Albion, by winning 2-1.

Their other results during the period include a narrow 1-0 defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Grimsby Town. Despite suffering losses, the side have shown their ability to compete with established football league sides. Showcasing the importance of this fixture for Lynn, whilst the fixtures against Peterborough United, Norwich City, and MK Dons will be the standout games, this will be a tough test for Ian Culverhouse’s men.

King’s Lynn will face a familiar face, in the way of Dayle Southwell, who recently made the move to Alfreton Town this summer

As the season draws near, King’s Lynn Town FC put their pre-season efforts to the test, welcoming the newly-promoted Championship side, Peterborough United to The Walks Stadium (August 3rd, 19:30).

In a home schedule that has previously welcomed MK Dons and Norwich City, the final home game of the pre-season schedule will be marked by a third fixture against Football League calibre for The Linnets. The pre-season campaign will later be concluded with away visits to Alfreton Town and Heachem FC, ahead of the season opener, against Southend United (August 21st, 15:00).

The summer transfer window has presented eight new signings to King’s Lynn, where all have been put through their paces as the club turned announced their full-time status. Ian Culverhouse’s side have had fixtures against teams from a wide range of divisions; from Premier League Norwich City, to Eastern Counties League Premier side Gorleston FC, allowing King’s Lynn Town FC’s newest acquisitions to have had the opportunity to shine in a wide variety of tests.

Most noticeably, having signed from the Scottish Premiership side: St Mirren, Junior Morias has become one of the most eagerly anticipated stars for The Linnets. Formerly of National League side: Boreham Wood Town, Morias, 26, has been able to register goals-against Gorleston FC and Stratford FC, whilst only the woodwork denied the Jamaican from outside of the box, against Norwich City. 

Excitement has escalated around the town as fans have been given a glimpse of what they can expect from Morias’ striking partnership with fellow new signing, in the way of Gold Omotayo. Omotayo, 27, leaves fans dreaming of the perfect ‘big-small’ strike force. The pair will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Yorke and Cole or Defoe and Crouch. Lynn fans have left fans drooling, having shown a telepathic chemistry at times during this pre-season campaign, Omotayo and Morias’ partnership will be put to the sword with the visit of Championship quality, in Peterborough United. 

Beyond Junior Morias and Gold Omotayo, new goalkeeper, and former Posh ‘keeper Paul Jones will be searching for a solid performance in this fixture. The veteran Lynn shot-stopper played 35 times during the 2011-12 campaign with Peterborough United, before going on to play for the likes of Portsmouth FC and Crawley Town.

Peterborough United finished runners-up in League One last time around, ending the campaign with 87 points, to earn a first return to The Championship, since their relegation 2013.

Much of their success last season will be accredited to the goal threat of Johnson Clarke-Harris. The 27-year-old scored 33 times in League One for The Posh, and is reportedly ready for action in King’s Lynn, before the season opener on Saturday.

In the build-up to this clash in West Norfolk, the club confirmed the signature of Ghanaian attacking midfielder Kwame Poku, the 19-year-old joined from League Two side Colchester United, and could make his unofficial debut in this game. Prior to Poku, the club announced their return to England’s second division with the signings of former Derby striker: Jack Marriott, whilst also recruiting Lincoln City FC’s star man Jorge Grant, a player who has received high praise for his performances in League One last season, after securing 13 goals in his 39 games. Additionally, King’s Lynn-born Aaron Powell could feature for Posh after signing a new deal during the summer.

In a look at their pre-season run, The Posh have had a mixture of results. Their campaign began with an 8-0 victory against Bedford Town. Since then, Darren Ferguson’s side drew 2-2 with Oxford United, before overcoming the challenge of Swindon Town (1-0), to then suffer their first defeat of pre-Championship run, in a 2-0 loss to Portsmouth FC.
