Surely Adam that was the target at the start of the season.  Nothing has changed.  All that's happened is The Chairman has given the main man more tools to make it happen.   Reach for the Moon, if you miss it you will hopefully land amongst the Stars.

Do you mean Saddlebow?

General Discussion / Match report v Weymouth

Weymouth 3 King’s Lynn Town 1
Saturday 7th October

Weymouth had just the right tactics against Lynn, allowing them the possession but having the discipline and organisation to give Lynn few chances and then having the speed to hurt them on the break.
Lynn fielded the same team that defeated Biggleswade.
Both teams took time to settle with Lynn have a free kick which came to nothing and Weymouth having the first corner which had the same result.
Then in the twelfth minute Cameron Norman's cross found Ryan Hawkins who was judged to have been pushed and Lynn were awarded a penalty. Michael Clunan tried to place his spot kick but home 'keeper Gareth Stewart guessed the right way to pull off a good save.
Four minutes later Weymouth had their first shot Calvin Brooks dragging the ball back for Brandon Goodship who forced a good save from Alex Street.
Lynn continued to dominate with Norman proving a handful for the home defence but resolute defending and blocking gave Lynn few chances in the final third.
Weymouth took the lead against the run of play on 28 minutes Goodship getting on the end of a ball over the top to round Street and score.
Ten minutes before the break a foul by Terras' McCarthy on Gash gave Lynn a free kick from some 25 yards. Hawkin's looping kick went over the wall but hit the base of the upright.
Lynn lost Leon Mettam with a suspected hamstring injury and then Norman ballooned over having been picked out by Clunan's corner.
The second half began in much the same vein as the first with Stewart pulling off a number of saves and it was no surprise when Lynn equalised on 67 minutes, Michael Gash scoring after exchanging passes with Craig Parker.
It should have been the goal that inspired the Linnets to victory but on 75 minutes a moment of hesitation in the Lynn defence allowed Goodship to score his second of the afternoon.
Stewart then pulled off another good save to deny Gash who was on the end of Toby Hilliard's cross.
With six minutes remaining Lynn's defence failed to clear their lines when Harry Baker crossed and the ball fell to Charlie Davis whose dipping 25-yard volley beat Street.
Stewart, who was the Terras man of the match, then parried an angled shot from Norman to end Lynn's hopes.

Weymouth: G. Stewart, Brooks, Cooper (Tubbs 72), Wells, Buckley, Carmichael, Davis, McCarthy, Thomson (Baker 72), Goodship, Wakefield. Subs: Tiago Sa, Prodomo, Baker, Harvey, Tubbs, Booked: Thomson, Carmichael, Goodship, Davis, McCarthy. Scorer: Goodship 29. 75 Davis 83

Lynn: Street, Norman, Blake-Tracy, Fryatt, Ward, Jarvis, Clunan, Parker (Gillies 82), Mettam (Hilliard 33), Gash, Hawkins. Subs: Gaughran, Siddons, Gillies, McQuaid, Hilliard. Scorer: Gash 67

Was told last Saturday it was being swapped due to first team so must have been true as it’s happened  :banghead;  :nilpoints:
So why when the club put out its weekend preview did they say the match was at home only for them to say it was an urgent fixture change two hours later.
Does that mean there will no further reserve home fixtures on a Saturday when the first team are at home the following Tuesday?

When's the next Tuesday night fixture for 1st team?

Lynn have a tough task ahead of them when they travel to Weymouth on Saturday - recent meetings show it is a club they have managed to score just the one goal against 495 minutes of football. However, Lynn have the best defence in the division in terms of goals conceded per game and Weymouth have yet to manage a home clean sheet.
The Terras occupy tenth place in the table, the positioned they finished in last season, and have had mixed results, defeating current league leaders Kettering 3-1 but losing by a single goal at home to lowly St Ives, giving the Saints their only league win of the season.
On Saturday they bowed out of the FA Cup going down 2-1 to National South side Chelmsford City.
Weymouth added much travelled striker Matt Tubbs to their squad on Tuesday.
The 33 year has joined the Terras on a month's loan from Havant & Waterlooville which makes Weymouth his 16th senior club. Born in Salisbury he played for his home club against Lynn in 2004. His stay with Salisbury saw him net over 100 goals in 248 appearances.
His career saw him play twice for England C and he went on to play for Bournemouth and Portsmouth amongst others.
He made his Weymouth debut on Tuesday evening, scoring twice in the 3-1 league cup win against Wimborne.

Ground: Bob Lucas Stadium, Radipole Lane, Weymouth. DT4 9XJ

Admission: Adults £11, Concs £8 , Children £3, Unemployed £8.

General Discussion / McQuaid given contract
« on: October 04, 2017, 08:41:13 AM »
King's Lynn Town are pleased to announce that talented young midfielder Eoin McQuaid has been rewarded with a one year contract.
 
20 year old McQuaid has recently become a regular with Ian Culverhouse's matchday squad and played 90 minutes against Kempston Rovers in Lynn's league cup defeat on Saturday.
 
Eoin spoke to the official club website after Saturday's defeat and had this to say.
 "It's my first contract, I'm happy to sign for my local club, I've been working hard in pre season and at the start of the season and the gaffer said he would reward me with a contract.
 I've been playing for the reserves for 4 years now and I've dipping in and out of the first team but it's nice to be involved more regularly now.
 It's nice to put pen to paper as I supported the club when I was younger and to pull on the shirt is something I always dreamed of.
 I'm delighted to of signed a contract as I've now got the security of staying with the club".

Kempston Rovers 3 King’s Lynn Town 1
Saturday 30th September

Lynn bowed out of the league cup at the first hurdle with a 3-1 defeat at Kempston Rovers.
Manager Ian Culverhouse made a number of changes with first starts being given to Liam Fryatt, Thomas McLeish and Eion McQuade while Craig Gillies, Sam Gaughran, Toby Hilliard and Tom Siddons were also included in the starting line-up.
Lynn could have been ahead as early as the sixth minute when Siddons was pulled down in the area by home 'keeper Tom Wyant but Wyant made amends for his actions by making a superb one handed save from Siddons' resulting spot kick.
The Walnuts gave Lynn warning of what was to come when, on 15 minutes, Alex Street did well to tip over Jake Newman's half volley from the edge of the box.
Siddons had the ball in the net a couple of minutes later but it was ruled offside. The home side went ahead on 29 minues when Nathan Tshikuna set up Newman who took advantage of sloppy defending with a 20 yard drive that gave Alex Street no chance.
Lynn were awarded a second penalty ten minutes later when Wyant grounded Hilliard, the home custodian was booked for his trouble. This time it was Cameron Norman who stepped up to take the kick and he made no mistake, putting the ball to the 'keeper's right. With the scores equal at half time Lynn introduced Ryan Hawkins for Hilliard who was suffering concussion resulting from being on the end of the penalty incident.
As the hour approached Tshikuna went just wide of the post but three minutes later Newman scored again racing through and brushing off the attentions of Fazer Blake-Tracy to score.
With time added on approaching it was the Tshikuna/Newman combination again which led to Newman completing his hat-trick. The winger pulling the ball back to give Newman an easy finish making his tally ten goals from twelve this season.

Kempston: Wyant; McNulty, Simpson, Goodman, Mercer (Lyon 73), Boland (Shepherd 83), Heneghan, Moussi (Fryer 72), Tshikuna, Fuller; Newman. Subs: Ivy, Shepherd, Fryer, Lyon, Johnson. Booked: Wyant, Fuller. Scorer: Newman 29, 60, 88

Lynn: Street, Norman, Blake-Tracy, Gaughran, T Ward, McLeish (Clunan 76), McQuaid, L Fryatt, Siddons, Gillies, Hilliard (Hawkins h/t). Subs: Hawkins, Clunan, R Fryatt. Booked: L Fryatt. Scorer: Norman (pen) 40

Maybe an opportunity for all those fans who don't want to spend their hard earned cash on an away day to come and see what the reserves have to offer?  From what I have seen you won't be disappointed.  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Kempston Rovers v King’s Lynn Town
 
Saturday 30th September

 Lynn set out on the league cup trail with a visit to Kempston Rovers on Saturday.
 Sixty five of the 68 teams in the league are taking part in the competition this season with Northwood already having been removed in the preliminary round leaving sixty-four for the first round.
 Three teams have opted not to take part in the competition, the most notable being Hereford and they are joined by North Leigh and Mangotsfield United.
 The amount of potential travelling, particularly in midweek, and the lack of enough prize money has been cited as the reason for Hereford's decision.
 It is a cup that Lynn won in 2005 but in recent seasons, when taking part in league cups, they have preferred to field a team that included fringe players, many of them making their first team debuts via this competition.
 However, with the match switched to a Saturday and the reserves in action at The Walks against Diss Town, it looks likely to be a very strong team facing the Walnut Boys (it seems Kempston is well known for its walnuts!).
 Lynn have met Kempston three times in the days when both were playing in the United Counties League and have won all three meetings without conceding. Kempston were promoted to the Southern League Central Division in 2016 finishing in sixth place last season. This season they seem to be continuing that form with their 4-0 victory over Aylesbury United on Tuesday moving them up to eighth spot and leaving them unbeaten at home in the league.
 In the FA Cup they defeated Newport Pagnell and Wisbech Town before going out 4-0 to Hereford.
