General Discussion / Re: new signing
« on: January 06, 2021, 02:39:51 PM »
Have to say it’s a brave decision by the Chairman to add two new bodies in a week when the whole country goes into lockdown and at the same time as the initial 3 months of Gov money ends.  The Chairman must be confident that the new offer of money from Sport England is going to come through in decent numbers in the form of a grant and not a loan.   If not is he thinking he will find it all himself ?

Fair point. Guess all the other clubs in this league who have signed players in the last week are confident of the money coming through as well.


Seemingly not all.   Chester seem somewhat concerned.

"not received any communication".

"NL asked to engage with its members".


In a way, that's quite ironic coming from a football club.

where has it been said that the signing has cost us anything.

You don't think he'll want a weekly wage?

Oh and a new lady has been appointed as Club Secretary, ex Macclesfield.

With this Lady’s history and as she has been looking for employment, I would assume that the post of Secretary at Lynn has now become a paid position.   :dontknow:

IMHO, any clubs that accept the grants or loans should not be allowed to sign additional players.
Weekly testing of all players, and the staff that mix with them, should be compulsory.
Clubs need to show they are doing as much as they can to help the situation. If some just carry on as they have been, they can’t really complain if it all grinds to a halt!

You would think that as Jan games have started to be played, that the clubs would need to know what funds they are getting by now.  :dontknow:

Covid has halted the non-league season at Step 3 and below.

Conversations will take place between leagues over the coming days before the FA Council meets to discuss the situation.

There is increasing acknowledgment that completing the season as planned may not be possible.

General Discussion / Re: Norfolk in Tier 4 from 0001 Boxing Day

"The football club has begun this week the refund process for the postponed Notts County fixture, due to have been played on Boxing Day at The Walks. However we have been contacted by supporters, of both clubs, who wished for us to keep their ticket money as a donation to King’s Lynn Town Football Club.



Supporters of both Clubs? I can't keep up with all this. Were away supporters allowed to attend the game?  :dontknow:

Under English contract law, if a contact is impossible to complete, then the contract can become void.

I wouldn’t think that would apply at the moment, but could be the case if season is abandoned.

i.e. players are under contract to play football but there’s no football to be played.

No fault of either party to the contract.

A “no fault” situation.

Have to agree.

Govt pot is not bottomless. Everything has to be paid for sooner or later. Funding does not come from a magic pot of Gold that they found at the end of a rainbow.

Far more important things that need funding than football.

Food on the table, roof over peoples heads is surely far more important.

Locally, we have organisations such as Kings Lynn Foodbank and Purfleet Trust as examples, who must look on with envy at the money these Clubs have already received.

It's a time for necessities rather than luxuries!

I think the next 2 months might see a return to the strictest lock down conditions, with things being moth balled for a couple of months......when that happens we may see further emergency funding....it may also be that players will just be  paid a retainer across the leagues, until competitions resume.

Kes, thats a far too simple solution!

Majority of other people have seen income reduced, but not the majority of footballers. Seems crazy to me, especially when its a second income for quite a few of them.
