Mike.

Did the Club get back to you regarding your kind offer of buying a new flag to replace the tatty looking one?

It would be nice to look posh rather than tatty if we were lucky enough to get a draw that appealed to Sky TV.

When 84k a month and a 9k FA Cup bye is not enough.

I don't do Twitter, but just had this sent to me. I guess it's just showing that the Chairman has a sense of humour and is enjoying a laugh with the County supporters.

Such a Wag!

Getting lots of emails from Notts County fans asking about streaming refunds - this of course we will do or you could donate the money to our war chest to help with our player budget - do let me know which you would prefer!

General Discussion / Double signing for Lynn
« on: October 22, 2020, 07:38:58 PM »

Kingís Lynn Town are pleased to announce the signings of central defender Danny Lupano and forward Kairo Mitchell.

Belgian born Danny, who is 20, joins the club on loan from Hull City, initially for one month, after a similar spell in Northern Ireland with Derry City last season. Moving to England at 16 Danny joined Solihull Moors before joining Birmingham City in 2018. After leaving Birmingham he joined Hednesford Town before having trials at Wolves, Leicester and Hull where he put pen-to-paper on a professional deal.

23 year old striker Kairo joins after a brief spell with Dartford in the National League South. Kairo started his career with his hometown club Leicester City and on release he joined Nuneaton Borough and then Coalville Town before joining Dartford on the eve of the new season after impressing as a trialist in pre-season. Kairo has made 7 appearances for the Grenada national team, scoring 3 goals.

Speaking on the signings, Director of Football Robbie Back commented ďWe are really pleased to bring in both Danny & Kairo. We have been looking for a front man now for a few weeks after losing Gashy with illness and hearing he could be out for a few more months. Kairo will bring in something different to the other strikers we have and gives us another attacking option. He played well against us for Coalville a few years ago so we know what he can do.

We wanted to bring in another defender with Aaron Jones picking up a knee injury but thankfully this is not as bad as first feared. Danny did very well for Derry last season and there were keen to take him back again on loan. We would like to thank Hull City for their assistance in the signingĒ

The club would also like to place on record their thanks to Jake Smith and all those at the Dukes Head Hotel in Kingís Lynn for their assistance with the signing of Danny.

Grants without a transfer embargo just feels wrong.

I have to agree.

Are we certain this figure is a monthly and not to cover the next 3 months.


BBC Sport yesterday:

The National League is to distribute the government's £10m support package on an average attendance basis, meaning seven former Football League clubs will receive a larger sum.

Chesterfield, Hartlepool, Notts County, Stockport, Torquay, Wrexham and Yeovil will receive £95,000 a month, with the 16 other clubs receiving £84,000.

To my way of thinking in a crisis like this all people should get is enough to tread water and survive..and when it becomes that basic, the sum each person/club requires should be calculated to be the same or very similar.



I wouldn't completely disagree with that Kes. I think the vast majority of players in North and South are part timers and derive their main income from their other employment. This would also apply to the vast majority of Lynn players. Why should these people be entitled to all, or indeed any, of their second income being funded by Grants, when other people are only getting 80% of one income or have lost their jobs completely?

All Clubs need is sufficient funds to keep going. If you take players wages out of the equation,  where they don't rely on the pay from their Clubs as their main source of income, then its less money paid out in grants with more available to be given to far more important areas of the community.

If Football itself was to say we want to give you 10 million, then fair enough. I really don't see why part time, second jobs should be funded by Grant money.

On top of that, if new signings appear as soon as the money arrives, we will know the grant money was not really needed. That would really be taking the p***.

Taking rather than giving...........how's that being the heart of the community.

It's all nonsense.

National League clubs get UK£10m bailout

British government and National Lottery partner to help English soccer's fifth and sixth tiers.

Posted: October 20 2020

National League clubs get UK£10m bailout

Clubs in English soccer's semi-professional National League will each receive a share of UK£10 million funding to ease the financial impact of coronavirus restrictions.

The 66 clubs who play in the fifth and sixth tiers of English soccer will benefit as they continue to play behind closed doors after the return of fans was postponed due to rising infection rates.


UK culture secretary Oliver Dowden announced the emergency support as part of a partnership with the National Lottery.

ďThis UK£10 million fund will provide a bridge to help clubs survive this immediate crisis whilst we work together on the safe return of fans.Ē

Funds will be distributed to clubs in the National League, National League North, and National League South via the Football Association, English soccer's national governing body.

Isnít the money coming from the National Lottery? Therefore no tax payers money involved?

Taxpayers money is involved as it's a partnership between Government and National Lottery.

Government owns the National Lottery, although its currently franchised out to Camelot, who are in turn owned by a Canadian Teachers Pension Fund.

I agree.

I'm all for any Club receiving money so they can survive but 100% against it being tax payers money, especially when there is so much money sloshing around in the game itself.

Are there any restrictions on how the money is spent, or will we see Clubs now splashing out on new signings at the tax payers expense?

Hospitals, Doctors surgery's, Mental health, children with no food during school holidays.........the list is endless, yet our money goes towards football clubs, with the majority of the Clubs in NL having part time players, meaning they have other employment/earnings elsewhere.

Any money given to these fortunate few is money that could go towards the unfortunate masses.



Total wage bill of Premier League in 2020.

This is where the money should come from, rather than hitting the taxpayer.


Manchester United   £332 million   Liverpool   £264 million   Manchester City   £260 million   Chelsea   £244 million   Arsenal   £223 million   Tottenham   £148 million   Everton   £89.5 million   Leicester City   £72.62 million   Crystal Palace   £66.8 million   Southampton   £60 million   West Ham United   £57.46 million   Watford   £45.91 million   Burnley   £41.70 million   Bournemouth   £40.44 million   Newcastle United   £37.96 million   Brighton   £36.21 million   Wolves   £32.65 million   Aston Villa   £23.8 million   Norwich City   £13.8 million   Sheffield United.

A crazy world has just got a bit more crazy.
