I think that's a great opening fixture !



It certainly is. Couldn't have been much better.

Good Boxing day game as well, and also going into next year and the April Bank holiday.

And if we need a result on last game of the season, this could be regarded as a useful fixture (if you want some   :laughcry: ).

Unfortunately, that is apparently often the case.

If Steve Curtis has now retired, he may have some spare time on his hands.

Could he not be persuaded to act as a consultant (avoiding the physical work) to the Volunteers?

If it worked and all parties were on board with it, it coukd  keep the cost down by not having to employ a groundsmam  :dontknow:

The pitch is in very good order , there has been upto 3/4 inc of grass on it and a very
good covering, and there are also groundmen doing a good job on it . all in good hands.
Why on earth don't of you who are commenting on the pitch go and have a look, its feel
no charge.

General Discussion / Lynn News article on pricing.

https://www.lynnnews.co.uk/sport/linnets-announce-rise-in-admission-prices-due-to-loan-repaym-9206245/

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.

I think that's the way forward.....nettles and thistles about 5 inches high at the Walks every home game  to greet these NL sides(They don't like it up em !!!)........freshly watered on the match day morning, of course ! 😉

As someone on here used to say, "be careful what you wish for".   :watching:

With just a few weeks to go I have seen or heard nothing regarding the pitch. With no groundsman wbhat has been happening to it.

I heard that a couple of volunteers were tending to it at the moment.

On the plus side tho, he was wanted by Wrexham.


No mention of Wrexham offerering him a contract though (as far as I can see).
