The Linnets face an exciting opportunity, being put to the test against League One outfit MK Dons at The Walks (Tuesday 13th July. 19:00 PM), as part of the club’s opening pre-season fixture. As the new season looms, King’s Lynn have organised a thrilling array of fixtures to prepare for the club’s second season in the Vanarama National League.

The fixture list provides a test from a wide range of sides, with Peterborough United and Norwich City being announced as opponents, the pair will both make their way to North Norfolk later on in the pre-season schedule. On the road, the club has confirmed away fixtures against the likes of: Chelmsford City FC; Alfreton Town; Heacham FC; and Bishop’s Stortford FC.

The fixture will present a familiar face in former Norwich City defender, and now MK Dons boss: Russell Martin, who will lead his side into this clash; having taken on the managerial position in November 2019. As well as former Canary Andrew Surman and on-loan Josh Martin. The League One side also has former Chelsea prospect Josh McEachran on their books, a player who played for The Blues eleven times before having spells at: Birmingham City; Watford, Middlesborough; Vitesse Arnhem; and Brentford.

Nice write up by Sam Plummer.

Sam, Kings Lynn is in West Norfolk, not North Norfolk.

A fairly comprehensive statemment from the club. Credit where credit is due, telling supporters not to buy a season ticket if they would want their money back in the event of a further lockdown. Streaming will be offered as an alternative if needs be. Combination of cost, experience of last two season, and caution going forward will have an effect on season ticket sales imho.

I'm still not sure about this "frozen ticket prices" for this sesson as there will be a £1 "donation" added to the cost. If the £1 is mandatory, which it appears to be, then its an increase whichever way you look at it.

Theres also the little matter of tax. Admission prices attract VAT, donations don't. If this was allowed, why not charge £1 to get in and have a mandatory £19 "donation" (I say this in jest). I just can't see it being permitted by HMRC.

What's the point or benefit of doing it this way? The £1 increase is apparently being ring fenced to go towards repaying the debts that the Club has incurred, but it wouldn't  have to be a donation for this to happen. A £1 is a £1 wherever it comes from.

I know there's quite a few accountants that follow this forum so maybe one of them could kindly  give their opinion on this.

General Discussion / Squad for next season

Squad building time for next season.

Obviously we don't know who IC intends to keep from the current squad but with the possibility of 2000 league players looking for clubs very soon, who would supporters like to see at Lynn? Let's keep it realistic but ambitious and restrict it to players that we know are available.

Where do we start? Looking around, there already appears to be quite a few players available that fit the bill.

General Discussion / V Boreham Wood

Boreham Wood v King's Lynn Town

The Linnets make their first visit to Meadow Park on Monday (3 pm) looking to avenge the 3-0 defeat inflected on them at The Walks in October, which saw Lynn playing the second half with ten men having had Jamar Loza sent off seconds before half time and Archie Mair the hero for his saves and unfortunate villain for conceding a penalty.

Having reached the play-offs last season, 15th placed Wood have become the league's draw specialists this campaign with 16 matches ending all square, 6 of the goalless. Goals, or lack of scoring them, seem to have been a problem for both teams of late. Lynn having not scored in 298 minutes and Wood for 360. Wood having failed to find the net in seven of their last eleven league outings.

While Lynn were losing to Stockport last Tuesday and getting a point against Maidenhead on Saturday, Wood have been without a fixture for eight days having lost 3-0 to Stockport on 24th April.

The main source of Wood's goals is Kabongo Tshimanga who scored twice against Lynn and has notched 17 so far this season bring his total since joining the club to 31 goals from 65 appearances. Along with Tshimanga is the physical presence of Matt Rhead scorer of the other goal against Lynn.

Lynn will hopefully have Elkan Baggott available following his FA Youth Cup exploits with Ipswich Town.
