From the Chairmans twitter

Looks like it will be a decent crowd

Lots of calls from Norwich City fans wanting their football fix - you are more than welcome. Come and support Norfolk’s highest Non-League team - a warm welcome awaits
 supporters.  Buy tickets on-line or on the day at the box office

Always nice to see a few Canaries fluttering in the Linnets nest.   :scarf:

Members of the club’s first-team staff travelled to Harrogate Town for a National League U19 Alliance fixture on Wednesday, and thus came into contact with members of Harrogate staff who are now under self-isolation due to COVID-19.

On that note, Guiseley were at Harrogate on Monday for a County Cup game.   :dontknow:

Southport v Gateshead now off.

From Southports website;:

Our home fixture against Gateshead which was scheduled for Saturday has been postponed.

The game has been called off due to the visitors having members of first-team staff who are self-isolating in line with Government advice following the Cvoid-19 outbreak.

The National League have agreed to the postponement.

The club would like to apologise to supporters for the uncertainty surrounding this fixture. The National League confirmed at 3.15pm on Friday that fixtures in its three divisions would be allowed to proceed, only for the club to subsequently learn of the situation at Gateshead.

Chester v Boston called off.

From their website:

Chester Football Club can confirm that tomorrow’s scheduled fixture at home to Boston United has now been postponed.

Earlier today, the National League announced that this weekend’s fixtures in their three divisions would proceed.

We fully respect the extremely difficult choice that they had to make and understand their reasons for doing so.

However, considering our local circumstances, we have taken the decision to postpone our fixture.

Supporter, volunteer, player and staff safety is absolutely paramount to us – especially those in the ‘at-risk’ groups who are most vulnerable.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow KES.  Just reading Harrogate Town have had to call off their game tomorrow as 4 players have self quarantined.

4 days ago Guiseley played Harrogate

Any official mention of this fact from either  Lynn or Guisley? That's if they are aware of the situation.

Good news for the Club. Who knows what the end result would have been if this and subsequent games had been cancelled. Personally, I must admit I am surprised by the decision. I do wonder what the decision was based on and if its a case of  the real experts that made this decision, or the decision makers ignoring the real experts.   :dontknow:

Plenty of hand sanitizer being placed strategically around the ground (toilets, bar, eatng outlets etc)?  Those supporters that are at the game potentially putting themselves at a higher risk than if they stayed at home, need the Club to try and help protect them the best they can.

Regarding the football, prediction is that we will be back on track tomorrow!

So many experts popping up re #coronavirus . Let's just leave it to the REAL experts to guide us. Business as usual at present for
@officialKLtown this weekend but PLEASE follow the #NHS guidelines around the ground and everyday life.

 :dontknow: I thought the REAL experts had already spoken, and its what the supporters are basing their comments on.  :dontknow:

With the next home game ( after Saturday) two weeks away, and everything changing, seemingly on a daily basis I wouldn’t call it ‘doommongering’. Just facing reality.   We have a lot of fans over retirement age, who may  see it that way.

Likely a very prescient comment Mallard Well said

Mallard may well have been over optimistic here. We could hear very soon that last Tuesday was the last match of the season.   :dontknow:

Prem, Championship, Leagues one and two now closed down until next month.

England's two friendly internationals also postponed.

A joint announcement from the Football Association, Premier League, EFL, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship confirmed the professional game would be postponed in England until April 3 at the earliest.

The postponement takes in England’s two friendlies against Italy and Denmark on March 27 and 31.

“This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus,” a statement said.

“It will also apply to all England team fixtures at every level and all FA competitions including the FA Cup and the Women’s FA Cup, along with academy and youth-team matches.

“The decision is being made purely on the number of cases requiring self-isolation and the impact on facilities. Given the steps being taken across clubs, there is no alternative but for today’s action.

“However, all parties are committed at this time to trying to complete this season’s domestic fixture programme and are liaising to establish appropriate options to do so.”

Parts of the UK are already banning meetings of over 500 people.

Being realistic, we have to ask when this will be in all parts of the UK, not if.

Being in the "high risk group" (over 60, underlying health problems, and Fat), I'm not taking any chances (or at least keeping the risk to a minimum).

"Football is not a case of life and death......its much more important than that". What a load of baloney that statement was/is!

Remember we chased coalville down.

Indeed we did!

we are not a bad team overnight

Never quite agreed with this one though. Hopefully not, but as Coalville proved, its perfectly possible that it can happen.

Greg Plummer report:

National League North

Gateshead 1, King's Lynn Town 2

Simon Power was the matchwinner as his first goals for King's Lynn Town gave them a crucial away win this afternoon.

The Norwich City loanee put the Linnets in front after 17 minutes as Ian Culverhouse's side controlled the first period at the International Stadium.

But they were pegged back six minutes after the restart when JJ O'Donnell headed home a leveller for Gateshead, who were unbeaten in 11 at the start of play, from a corner.

And the West Norfolk side found themselves under severe pressure for much of the second half at a ground they had not won on in five previous visits.

But they found a winner eight minutes from time when Sonny Carey found Power, who beat two defenders before firing home.

Linnets boss Ian Culverhouse said: "It's a massive win for us and I can't speak highly enough of the players who keep coming up with the answers.

"I thought first half we were excellent, we bossed the game and kept possession but in the second half they really came at us and we were hanging on in the end.

"We got done from a restart, which I was disappointed about because we are normally good at them, and it became a battle after that.

"Simon (Power) has come back in and took his goals really well. He has got to learn the game but he's got a good future. He's a good weapon to have in your side."

Tensions looked set to boil over amid some altercations between rival supporters on the final whistle and the Lynn team bus was given a police escort away from the ground.

With their main title rivals York City winning 3-1 at Alfreton Town, Lynn remain second in the table, two points behind the Yorkshire outfit with four games in hand.

However, they can return to the top on Tuesday with a win over bottom side Bradford Park Avenue - who recorded only their fourth league win of the season today against Chester - at the Walks

Yes Kes, as Dilly has said, I think you must be missing something.

Agreed nobody should panic, but the potential harm this Corona virus could do is eormous. Basically, if the Professionals are warning us and telling/advising us what to do or not to do, I personally don't think Its worth ignoring what they have to say.

In fact, I would go as far to say that in the UK the official response has been relatively low key compared to other Countries, and that's probably due to those in Power being afraid of the financial consequences a more drastic response would create.

Thanks for that, Lindsay’s boot.  Good luck to IC and the team today.  Considering the serious stuff going on in the world today, particularly the current “nasty” that hasn’t yet hit our corner, talking in depth about our footy fix might be a bit trite.  So only a quickie from me - I just hope IC picks a strongly attacking line-up, because we don’t need the Gateshead form team all over our penalty area for 90 minutes ... COYL !

Apparently the "nasty" has already "hit our corner" with a couple from Heacham currently in isolation due to the hotel they stayed in recently, when in Tenerife.
