General Discussion / Match preview v Dorchester
« on: August 18, 2017, 07:31:59 PM »
Lynn make the long trip to Dorchester on Saturday with every hope of extending their winning streak.
Despite finishing one point above the relegation zone the Magpies gave Lynn two close games last season ending with the points shared on both occasions.
Summer has seen major changes at The Avenue Stadium with assistant manager Trevor Senior telling the local newspaper that "It's basically a completely new squad" as they try to recruit young, local talent.
It is a squad that includes two loan players from Exeter City and a number of players recruited from Wessex League side Portland United.
Other arrivals include Thomas Blair, a former youth player at Yeovil and Dom Panesar-Dower from Weymouth. Dropping out of full time football to join Dorchester is 35 year old 'keeper Chris Weale who has made nearly 300 appearances in the football league having appeared for Yeovil, Hereford, Shrewsbury, Bristol City and Leicester City.
The season started with a trip to Banbury United which ended in a 5-1 defeat with thee goals conceded in the opening 22 minutes.
For both their opening matches the Magpies were without the injured trio of Phil Ormrod, Tom Blair and Luke Winsper although Blair and Winsper could be available.

General Discussion / Match preview v Bishops Stortford
« on: August 15, 2017, 08:18:07 AM »
Lynn travel to Bishop's Stortford on Tuesday looking to continue their good start to the season.

Finishing one place and nine points below Gosport Borough last season the Blues lost 2-1 to promoted Tiverton Town on Saturday having taken the lead early in the second half.
Like Gosport, the Blues' squad has seen a number of new faces arrive during the summer.

Amongst those making their debuts for the Blues on Saturday was goalkeeper Nicky Eyre in his fourth spell with the club. Eyre announced his retirement in 2014 when he was with Chelmsford City but seems to have had a change of heart - signing for Leiston last season and now back with the Blues.

Defender Joe Robinson will no doubt be acquainted with Lynn's Harry Whayman as both spent time with Ipswich Town, in Robinson's case eight years. Robinson did make a debut for the Tractorboys - an 89th minute sub in the FA Cup against Portsmouth.
Also making their debuts were Sanusi, Jason Williams, George Casey, Christian Owusu, Darren Foxley, Zak Guerfi, Dipo Akinyemi, Aaron Tumwa and Mark Hughes.
Pre-season results saw two draws and four defeats for the Blues.

Sam Gaughran is the only player remaining from Lynn's last visit to Bishop Stortford when, as a 16 year old unused substitute, he watched Lynn progress to the second round of the FA Cup thanks to a brace of goals each from Adam Smith and Michael Frew plus one from Matt O'Halloran. The goals coming after Mark Warren had missed a penalty for Lynn.

Ground: ProKit UK Stadium, Dunmow Road, Bishop's Stortford, Herts, CM23 5RG
Admission: Adults £11, Cons & Students £7, Under 16s £6, Under 12s free

Just as I was going to donate I was beaten to it.

You can still donate Mike.

The exact cost of running it depends on exchange rates as its billed in US dollars, so cost could increase.

Also, they have not increased the cost for a while so a price hike is expected at sometime.

General Discussion / Match preview v Gosport

Lynn begin their Southern League campaign on Saturday with, understandably, a degree of optimism as they look to have their largest squad for some seasons, possibly ever. With nine new signings in addition to the sixteen players from last season who were involved in at least three Southern League matches it does look as though the club are adopting the "speculate to accumulate" approach and an interesting season awaits us.
Manager Ian Culverhouse appears to have been careful in his summer signings selecting, cherry picking, players from level 3 or lower rather than going for "big names" with just Cameron Norman and Michael Gash having experience with higher league clubs last season as the squad look to have a blend of youth and experience.
 Relegated Gosport Borough are the visitors on Saturday, a club that have had financial worries for the past two seasons and look to establish themselves at level three and avoid freefall down the leagues.
 The club faced its fifth winding up order in twelve months at the beginning of July and have a playing budget that has been slashed by around 90%.
Gosport began their pre-season with three players remaining from last season's squad and have had to go for a youthful line-up. They have added striker Chinedu Vine to their squad, a former academy player at Portsmouth who went on to play in Portugal. His hat-trick against Bognor Regis Town gave them their first pre-season friendly win. 'Keeper Sam Gray is another new recruit who was previously with Maidenhead United's youth team.
 Alek Prezpelowski is one of their more experienced summer recruits, the Isle of Wight based striker having Havant & Waterlooville amongst his previous clubs.
 In their final pre-season friendly on Tuesday evening against Steve Claridge's Salisbury City they ran out 2-1 winners thanks to a last gasp winner from former Cardiff City academy player Tyler Roche. Their other goal came from the penalty spot scored by another new signing, former QPR youth player Tyrell Mitford who played for Team Solent last season.
 Technically this is the first meeting between the teams, but clubs from Lynn and Gosport have met before in the Southern League with Lynn's visit to Gosport in November 1985 being memorable for nine goals and substitute Paul Hooton's second half hat-trick.

@officialKLtown boss Ian Culverhouse is delighted to add defender @CameronNorman95 to his squad. Culverhouse said: "He's an exceptional young footballer. He's a good size and has had a good grounding at Norwich City. His arrival fills another part of the jigsaw for us."
On more signings Culverhouse said: "There could be another one. You want all the sweets in the candy store, but I know there's a limit."
