So have the club received the test results??

I believe the results will be available on a stream, for a fee, for fans to see once they're announced.

WLM.  Not my words.   The Chairman said on a podcast there would be no season ticket refunds as this would bankrupt the Club.  Reading about Macclesfield and Southend today should that ring alarm bells ?

Any news on when the next Podcast is due?

Yes Blue and Gold. When we severed our ties with the new KLTFC in april 2019 we were immediately contacted by numerous local clubs who were aware of the commitment we had with King's Lynn more so since 2002. Along with my partner Graham we decided to sponsor Heacham Fc, King's Lynn Community Football (that according to O'Neills was Kings Lynn Town FC)and also The College of West Anglias Sports Campus. Knowing what we know now this has been an amazing near 18 months for Double G and the feedback has been amazing.
Again we are appreciated just like the old days at the Walks.All of the new sponsorships are for a 3 year term and hopefully this can be extended.
Senior football at Heacham, seeing the youth of the King's Lynn area thriving at KLCF despite attempts to scupper it and seeing the students at the sports campus getting further education and the opportunities to go with it. HAPPY DAYS.

With the idea that 1000 fans will be allowed in for the opening game v Yeovil.  Will the remaining tickets go on sale anytime soon?  How will it be determined who will
Get the tickets ?   Ballot,  first come first served.

If the Club are not convinced the game will be on, I don't really blame them for not having the tickets on sale yet.

Yes, I agree with that.
But everyone has to be sensible.
You can go grouse hunting, or banger racing, but not to some football matches.
There is no consistency in all of this.
The government is mostly to blame, but so are some individuals that refuse to follow the rules.

.................and then when you get someone asking people if they are jealous because they are at the game when others are not!   :banghead;

An example of what the Govt is up against when it comes to testing and going down the correct route. Numerous such Companies all claiming to have the silver bullet. This one could be as good as it sounds, or maybe not. Some serious claims there and of course, some serious money talked about. I wonder if Heathrow airport and Leidos, a $13bn US software company who's names have been mentioned and linked to it, even know anything about it. :dontknow:

Posted 7 hours ago:

Rapid and reliable coronavirus tests have so far defeated the combined research skills and financial firepower of the richest countries and corporations.

Yet a company with four employees, whose head office is registered to a ground-floor flat in the village of Toddington, 40 miles north of London, claims to have developed a saliva test that takes just 20 seconds to process.

If it works, it could offer a route out of the coronavirus crisis and prove a remarkable testament to the ingenuity of a man with no formal scientific education.

But the early excitement also shows our collective desperation for a silver bullet and willingness to suspend disbelief.

The “Virolens” test was unveiled last week by an obscure British tech company called iAbra. People take a simple mouth swab, which is dropped into a black box. Inside the box — iAbra says — is a digital camera attached to a microscope that can examine the sample and see if it contains any Covid-19. It displays the answer within seconds.

The device is manufactured in Hartlepool, in the north-east of England, by a listed UK company, TT Electronics, whose share price rose more than 40 per cent on last week’s announcement, valuing it at £439m.

Heathrow airport and Leidos, a $13bn US software company, were touted as the test’s “launch customers”.

Greg Compton, iAbra’s 33-year-old chief executive and the lead architect of the test, last week said the company had also seen “huge demand from universities in the US” and declared the test “a significant step forward in the battle against Covid-19”.

I’m with KES on this one.  Haven’t disagreed with a word, so far.  But unfortunately, nationwide, we have far too many people who put “what they want” at the top of their agenda.  We absolutely must put the safety of all ahead of the natural desire to be entertained. 


And shame on those that don't!

I suspect people who have bought season tickets won’t be perturbed at having to pay a fiver foe access to streaming.  On the fixtures front, it must be a concern that Solihull, one of our early opponents, are experiencing Covid spread enough to be high up the Government’s watch-list.
Same position as Norfolk was last week, but thankfully we have slipped back down the list again.

Southend on the brink?

Southend United have been given more time to clear tax debts after a winding-up petition against the club was adjourned for a fourth time.

The League Two side now have until 28 October to pay the remaining £493,991 owed to HM Revenue and Customs.

The Shrimpers aim to settle the debt through refinancing, with 502 homes planned to be built on Roots Hall when they move to their Fossetts Farm site.

In April they said an agreement to build a new stadium had been reached.

The latest winding-up petition is one of a number Southend have faced amid financial turmoil in recent seasons.

The news comes as National League club Macclesfield Town were wound up in the High Court on Wednesday over debts totalling more than £500,000.

Macclesfield Town Football Club has been wound up in the High Court over debts totalling more than £500,000.

Judge Sebastian Prentis made a winding-up order during a hearing in the Insolvency and Companies Court after being told £190,000 was owed in tax.

In addition, a solicitor for John Askey said the National League club's ex-manager was owed £173,000, while a financial lender was owed the same sum.

The club's owner Amar Alkadhi had asked for a further eight-week adjournment.

The petition, which had been adjourned for a 12th time last week, began in January 2019 and was scheduled to be heard again on Wednesday after Alkadhi claimed that a sale to Robert Benwell was at an advanced stage.

Benwell, who previously tried to buy Bury, was not mentioned in court on Wednesday by Alkadhi's lawyer, who asked for a further eight weeks to allow a sale to go through.

The judge later said that a business plan from Benwell had not been put forward to the court, however.

The court was told that Alkadhi understood the amount due to creditors was actually just £4,000, had made a late offer to pay an initial £20,000 of the debt owed to HM Revenue & Customs and had made available a screenshot of a bank statement with £1.1m of funds to show that creditors could be paid.

However, Judge Prentis said he would grant a compulsory order, saying "nothing gives me comfort that the club can pay its debts in a reasonable period" and that there had been "ample opportunity" for Alkadhi to pay off creditors.

He went on to say that he did not been told by Alkadhi where the £1.1m had come from or why outstanding debts had not already been paid.

The simple fact is B & G that the test and trace system should be THE most important thing on the Government agenda.....if we have a reliable system, then everything can open up.. ... without one we will be over run. (again). The Government has had 6 months to get something reliable in place. Some other European countries have got something suitable in place. I suspect energies are being so dispersed by Brexit, that ministers have let things slip and the country sits in a precarious position. I work in 'close contact services'
and the last 2 months have been an absolute nightmare due to regular changing of advice and no reliable test.
Our neighbours are teachers, both with rasping coughs, who can't get a test... apparently 230,000 people are waiting for test results....I would wager at least the same again who need a test and can't get one....... it's very concerning

Of course its a fact that the test and trace is a joke.

The point I was trying to make is that we get reports that other Countries systems are working fine, whereas the truth of that can be in doubt. Money on it if you looked hard enough you would find the people of some Country somewhere in the world saying they should look at the wonderful system the UK has. As always, the Media don't help matters.

One of the problems is the Billions of pounds that will be earned out of this. So you have PharmaTech Companies up to all sorts of tricks to sell their products and they are more than capable of influencing the Press. Add to that the fact that some of these Pharma Companies are also state owned!

Yes we need an effective track and trace system as ours is inadequate and this virus will never go away with out one (along with a Vaccine). I just don't believe that other Countries are as far ahead as it may seem when it comes to track and tracing.

Like our Govt they will be trying to  balance their Economy with the safety of their population and to some Countries the importance of people visiting their Countries is more important than it is to others.

Whatever the case and whatever the truth, never's all one big Conspiracy!  :laughcry:

saw a post from UK person in Rome...."swift accurate covid test on arrival at airport, result in 30 minutes.......but UK can't manage it."

I don't quite understand how they will know if they have flattened the curve, when their systems and info are so unreliable and tardy

In fairness Kes, there is more than one test available with quick turn around times and the Govt have said they are aware of them.

Their concern is how accurate these tests are and they have said "an incorrect test is worse than no test at all". It serves nobody's interest to have an unreliable system of testing.

I'm sure if there was a 30 minute test available that was deemed accurate enough, it would be used in the UK. I can't think of any reason for the Govt not to do so.

Apparently there is a testing system developed by a BioTech Company called Coyote which is looking good and is under review.

NHS website:

Getting your test result

You'll get a text or email when your result is ready.

Most people get their test results the day after taking the test. Some results might take longer, but you should get them in 72 hours.

There are 3 types of result you can get:

unclear, void, borderline or inconclusive

It does seem crazy that speedway can have a thousand supporters into a stadium and football can't, but it is what it is.

At the moment I think  all we can do is try and keep our own house in order and not do anything stupid. If we don't, no matter how unfair it may appear, we are in no place to complain about the rules and whats fair and whats not.
