In every League there will be teams that are more physical than others - Leeds Utd of old, Wimbledon of old were two of those who were known as "Dirty". Some of those clubs who we saw at The Walks last season could throw their weight about - some were downright thugs.

Being a teenager in the 70's, I still hate Leeds!!!!!

I will apologise in advance, if I offend anyone.......it is unusual for me to go off on one, but some of this negativity is tedious.....Given grants are available for much of the work it would surely be senseless to spend the money on that. Without someone like SC fans would never get to experience this standard of football and excitement. Left to its own devices the club could probably manage Eastern Counties or a step higher at best..... so if it ever should come crashing down you would be back to that level anyway. Given the amount of time and money the Chairman has put in together with the great efforts from all the people he employs, I really do feel its time for people's fears and anxieties to be put aside while this journey is happening.....just enjoy the fact that Lynn may actually progress and play at a really good level.
It seems to me, some people would be happy with a no risk strategy, play at step 6 in front of 200or 300 and just stagnate for a life time.....enjoy the local derby with Yarmouth and Swaffham and coiff the odd jar at half time, while moaning about everything that could be better and doing damn all about it


That is the scenario for an unprogressive large village/small town team I M O and sadly that reflects the mindset of many in West Norfolk...too afraid to stick their heads above the parapet and get things done and always unsettled by change......not surprised it has taken the energy of a number from outside the area, along with some very good, positive and dedicated local people to get things moving........

No need to apologise for a genuine post, in the interests of balance I would take issue with a couple of points.  My view is probably closer to Frontmans although that doesn't mean any of us want the club to stagnate or play at step 6 - absolutely no reason for that if the club is well run imo.  People who are concerned about the longer term are not just being negative, I for one never want to stand on a terrace feeling the way I did that night against Retford. 

I don't doubt that SC has thrown loads of money at 'the problem' that is KLFC and we have seen some damn good football in the past two seasons but for me that doesn't justify the debt that the club is now saddled with.  Next season is a real worry for some of us, while its great to go up a level there are some real fundamental cost increases that I just can't see being covered other than directly from SC, the issues around the upgrading required to the ground are small beer in comparison and history has shown us that this sort of one-man, unsustainable 'benefactor' model tends to end in tears.  There may still be time to set things up for a more financially stable future and SC did start to make more positive noises in that direction in his programme notes towards the end of the season and I would like to think the possibility of working with the Trust on the ground upgrading could be the start of a new partnership where trust is built up on both sides.  I for one am not unsettled by change, I just hope it comes quickly enough.

A well balanced and sensible post. Well said!  :scarf:

Jefferson airplane, blimey thatís going back.
 Maybe we will have an A Jones at Right back and a C Jones at left back. He wonít have to travel far up the A47 either.
Its certainly a lot closer than Eastbourne, so that's got to be in our favour!

Don't want to see Hawkins go sponsored him for 2 Seasons now and if he stays injury free will be a massive asset to the team..Don't forget the cracker he scored against Stratford to get us back into the game. Most of the team we have will be able to compete at the new level apart from Harry Limb who just hasn't fitted into the set up with the way we play, bring in a few more quality players and I think we'll be good enough to have a good Season.

Keep The Faith  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

I heard he was going to big spending Peterboro NS.   :dontknow:
Hawkins or Limb?

 I don't think either of them will be going now!   :laughcry:

Lynn News article:

King's Lynn Town have announced their season ticket prices for the 2019/20 season for their return to the National League.

Depending on age and season ticket category, season ticket prices range from £20 (under-16s) to £290 (adults).

Following their promotion to Step 2 football, the charges represent a slight increase on last season's prices.

Manager Ian Culverhouse saw his side clinch their place in the National League with a 3-2 extra-time victory in the Super Play-Off final at Warrington Last Saturday.


Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve said: "We have attempted to keep increases to a minimum and have done our best to balance this across our pricing structure whilst budgeting for a higher level of football, which will bring increased operating costs to the club next season.


"After much thought, we have introduced, a small charge to under-16s for the new season. I would encourage youngsters to purchase a £20 season ticket, which represents great value, as half of the games will be free to what our are future generation of supporters.

"Also a purchase of an adult season ticket produces a great saving spread over the season.

"We have what looks a very exciting season of football ahead of us and I look forward to your continued valuable support."

General admittance will be: Adults £15 (terrace) £17 (seat); concessions 65+ £13 (terrace) £15 (seat); students and 16 and 17-year-olds £9 (terrace) £11 (seat); under-16s £2 (terrace or seat).

Season tickets (to cover terrace and seating): Adults £290; concessions 65+ £250; students and 16 and 17-year-olds £165; under-16s £20 (to include birthday card signed by favourite player).

Executive VIP season ticket: £775 (includes pre-match buffet, programme, directors seating, parking, programme, complimentary tea and coffee pre-match and half-time). Prices are frozen from previous season.

Season ticket holders will also receive 10 per cent off club shop products, free seating and the ability to reserve seats.

Linnets boss Culverhouse and the club are expected to announce some player movements within the next fortnight.
