General Discussion / Re: Cameron King
« on: August 24, 2020, 04:29:28 PM »

From the Clubs website:

The Linnets have today pulled off a massive transfer swoop with the signing of midfielder Cameron King. The 24 year old was released by fellow National League outfit FC Halifax at the end of last season on the completion of his two year contract.

Locally based King joined Norwich City’s Academy at the age of 8 and made his debut for the Canaries in 2014 in a League Cup tie with Shrewsbury Town. In November of the same year Cameron made his international debut for Scotland’s Under 21’s in a match with Switzerland where he scored the equalising goal. The following season was punctuated by injury which resulted in Cameron being released by Norwich and deciding to link up with his local club Thetford Town where he enjoyed a productive season. A move to Shamrock Rovers followed before he enjoyed a brief loan spell at The Walks which included a memorable strike versus Weymouth in a Southern League play off semi final. In the close season he agreed a deal with FC Halifax and has been a regular in the team ever since.

Speaking on the news of King’s arrival at the club Director of Football Rob Back said ‘ Cameron is a class act and one who we have been chasing for a while. When it became clear that he was available we pulled out all of the stops so we could get the deal done and bring him into the football club. He has gained a lot of experience at this level of football and that will be invaluable to the team for next season. He is a very creative player who has an eye for a pass and enjoys being a pivotal player in a game. His arrival also creates even more competition for places in the manager’s starting line up which can only be good for everyone.

B&G I was somewhat baffled by your response. With that I rushed next door to our neighbour who is a IT Expert. He was able to explain the situation immediately, you have what is commonly known as the keyboard zero glitch. This is when, for example a biscuit crumb or other foreign body falls through the keyboard buttons  and makes contact with the circuit board, therefore adding a zero to any number entered. I know this must be true as when I was able to see the linnets on one of my rare visits to the walks I was sat behind WestLynnMike. Whilst making a post on the match blog on the trust page I heard him say F**  and shaking his tablet to dislodge a crumb that had fallen from his pasty. If you still have any problems please let me know. Up the linnets :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

They do Pasties at the Walks?

You sure it wasn't a crumb from a packet of Walkers Crisps?   :farmer:

Just mentioned there are problems didn't elaborate.Search Steve Curtis groundsman you wouldn't think there was a problem.

Hi GS.

Thanks for the info.

You previouskly mentioned you were at the ground a few weeks ago. Have you any  plans to visit again soon? If so, it would be nice to hear what's really going on.

Judging by the state of the pitch in Thurs I would think there is a certain amount of re-seeding or turfing to do.   Thankfully it’s now coming into the growing season, but I doubt it can be used anytime soon.   Wasted opportunity there and one that could have made the club a much needed few K

When the Chairman said there were problems with the pitch, did he elaborate on what the problem is?

How about this for a crazy situation....

Oxford City who play in the National League South ( step2) have to play all their home Friendlies behind closed doors.

Long Crendon who are a tenant at Oxford City’s ground and play in the Hellenic League can of course welcome supporters into the gound for Friendlies.

It will be interesting to see if our under 21's/Reserves play a few games at Walks.

There's been appeals for financial help, and due to the current Pandemic and supporters starved of their football fix, they could get a really good response to it.

Balanced of course with the problems that the pitch currently has. Does anyone know if the pitch is actually playable, or how bad the "problems" are?

Lost by the single goal today.

20 players used by Lynn, including 3 Reserves.

Who was missing from the 1st team squad?

(Reserves lost 2-0 at Heacham).

As a Linnets and Leicester City fan, I note that the Membership Scheme are exactly the same price. :dontknow: :dontknow:


In that case, someone needs to act fast and put the Linnets scheme up to £40!

Amazing that some people complain about others who are just backing one of the Chairmans plans.

Surely the 50p-£1 per item was somewhat tongue in cheek, by whoever said.?

You think?

If, as someone mentioned on a previous thread, someone at the Club claims that team shirts can be purchased between 50p and a £1, why are the Club replica shirts the only item that the 10% discount does not apply to?
