I guess with it being Blyth on Saturday there will be no need to have them in use.  When segregation is in place the away teams will now take over The Tennyson Road end of the Ground. Dover the first to have use of it next Saturday
Not sure if they will be up and running by then. I suppose we will know more after tonight.

Hereford did us a big favour tonight.

Interesting tweet from them after the game. Although they "only" had 1500 there tonight, the winning pot for their 50/50 was £460!

I have no idea how much we usually raise on our 50/50, but with gates of around 1100, guess (when comparing it to Herefords figures) we should be aiming for circa £375 to £400. That's no small amount when added up over the season. Anyone know if we achieve that or even beat it?

If we only have one person selling tickets, could we not have two (or if we have two, maybe try three)?
Worth a try?

[Sadly I think the current Trust board are setting themselves up to be seen as 'part of the problem'.

 :dontknow:   May I ask why?

It's only a personal opinion.  The GDF 'proved' that the Trust could do something practical to help the football club rather than being seen (by some) as 'anti' any owner of the football club (if it wasn't the Trust).  Fundraising events were held and the money raised has been used as a down payment on the turnstiles however, given that the funding for the ground improvements is still work in progress, I would have expected to see the GDF to continue.

Now if, hypothetically, funds can't be found to complete the required work in the timescale required to get FA approval for step 2 next year SC could point to a) the suspension of the GDF and b) the other funds held by the Trust and ask if the Trust is really there to help the club.  I appreciate (probably more than most) what is and isn't in the B&G Trust's constitution and how monies can be spent but the GDF was an ideal opportunity for the Trust to prove it is relevant and not just a protest group.

It takes two to Tango.

The Club have been told that if they wanted the Trust to be involved in further ground development fund raising, the door is open.

I understand there has been no response since the Trust handed 4k over and made the offer.

On a slightly different note, apparently 10 "older supporters" who sit in the Stand have got together, and pledged £50 per month each, to go towards the playing budget.

Firstly, well done to these supporters. Secondly, it shows that Supporters don't have to be a member of either the FOTL or Trust to be involved in fund raising.

Even if Cleeve, FOTL and Trust are doing something (or willing to do something) with regards to fund raising, it doesn't mean that individuals or a few friends can't get together and do their own thing, should they wish to support the Club in a different way.

On a slightly different note, I too thought the next part of the ground funding was coming from a grant. It’d be devastating to be in the playoffs, only to be relegated on technicalities.

My understanding is that certain works have to be started and approved as satisfactory before the Grant money is handed over.

They would have to be a member of the T F O L  but Iam not aware of any time limits

Many thanks again.

If you could find out for certain, and let me know, it would be very much appreciated.

King's Lynn Town send Northern Ireland youth international out on loan to Boston Town

 By Greg Plummer-
King's Lynn Town have sent striker Harry Limb out on loan to United Counties League outfit Boston Town.

Limb, 20, has yet to feature in a Linnets shirt this season after being sidelined for Lynn's return to the National League North through a mystery virus.

The Northern Ireland youth international, who was also on the books of Premier League Burnley, scored two goals in 21 appearances (12 as substitute) at The Walks.

The youngster spent some of last season out on loan to Pinchbeck, scoring four goals from 10 starts.

Poachers boss Gary Edgley told the Boston Standard: "I would just like to thank Kings Lynn Town and Stephen Cleeve for making this happen and wish them all the best in their bid for promotion this season.

"I'm really pleased to be able to bring in a player of Harry’s calibre to the club.

"It’s definitely a boost for my players and the club in our tough run over the Christmas period.

"This is the first time I will have worked with Limbo but he was at training this week and he has a real hunger to do well for us and to get back to the level he needs to be at.

"He will come straight into the squad for Tuesday's game against Oadby."

Limb came through the Boston United academy before joining Wisbech at the start of the 2016-17 season.

He scored 22 goals in 40 games for the club and caught the eye of Burnley's youth set-up.

Limb made his debut for Northern Ireland under 19s in a 2-1 European Championship qualifer defeat against Poland in 2017.

They are elected at the A G M proposed and seconded if that answered your Question
Thank you.

Do prospective committee members have to be FOTL members for any set period before they can apply to become committee members, or can they just turn up at the AGM and put their names forward.

Are the committee members elected these days, or is it the same as it was when first formed?

If the officials are elected, being a Supporters Club sounds good to me. If not, I'd stay with FOTL.
