I can name one NL club that have streamed their last three away games direct to their clubhouse for supporters to watch on various large screens with offers on food and drink.

I haven't bought the Lynn News for years, nothing like it was and expensive.  I always pick up a copy of the YLP when in Lynn. I may have picked up my last free one on Friday.

A must win game on Saturday with Scarborough v Brackley up against each other.

A chance to pull back some points on title rivals, fail and the pressure is on.

I'm with you on what Barrie Pierpoint said regarding poor value with regard to season tickets.  Didn't Mr Flannegan who was at the meeting report back and inform the supporter's what was actually said?  My recollection was that the prices had already been fixed and this was Cleeve's doing.

I said before the season started that pricing was going to be critical and this has been ignored again by Cleeve.  As you said he conveniently fails to recognise Lynn were relegated and is thinking he's doing the fans a big favour. It's unbelievable, when I mentioned to him it's laughable that a child is charged 22 to sit in the so called Premier seating he gives an example you wouldn't expect a child travelling first class on an aeroplane to travel at a discount. If he actually sat in the Premier seating he would realise that the view is blocked by posts just like in the wings of the stand.

Again as you said, prices need to be reduced by a meaningful amount not a pidly 2.  He's put himself in an impossible position as any price decrease will impact those who purchased season tickets making them even worse value than they already are.  The time to sort pricing was at the beginning of the season not into the season when he realises fans aren't going to be taken as mugs and vote with their feet resulting in pitiful attendances for a team that currently sit top of the NLN.

Cleeve also fails to grasp that to charge 10 for a child to sit in the wings of the stand is beyond insane.

Cleeve also asked me when was the last time I bought a season ticket.  I informed him that I've never bought a season ticket at Lynn.  I didn't have the heart to tell him that I actually bought one for Bromley for 97 which included having upto six U/11 season tickets absolutely free of charge and also entitles you to sit in the stand at no extra cost should you wish to.  Admittedly this was a special offer after they won the FA Trophy where supporters had 97 hours to buy at that price.  I haven't actually been to a game yet due to either being in Lynn or working, but for 97 i'm not going to out of pocket come the end of the season as I only have to attend 7 games to be in profit.  As you know though Nigel, Lynn is my team but Cleeve offers nothing in the way of incentives for Lynn fans.

On Saturday it's Non League Day, Bromley have reduced their prices for the game against Oldham, 15 Adults 10 Concessions down from 20 and 15 respectively.  Has Cleeve ever done anything like this to show appreciation to the Lynn fans. Well he did drop the price for Bedford by 2 and the gate went up.

Cleeve also said that fans are not bothered if they pay 17 or 20 admission as it's less than a cup of coffee at Costa! It's unbelievable what he says. 

Anyway, here's hoping for a Lynn win tonight, i think the prize money is needed, who knows Mr Cleeve might even buy everyone a coffe e at the Kettering tie if they progress.

I've been having a bit of a conversation with Mr Cleeve on this subject on the King's Lynn Town FC Supporters Group.  My stance has always been the price he charges for Concessions and Children.  He asked one supporter to name another club that charges 11 admission for Concessions, the same as Boston Utd. I was able to name 15 yes 15 National League North clubs that charge 11 or less!

Mr Cleeve has also denied that Barrie Pierpoint said that Season Tickets were poor value, he said that Pierpoint wanted better value and incentives.  I have asked what better value and incentives as I haven't seen any.

As yet I have received no response from Mr Cleeve. Another supporter also said pricing was too high, Mr Cleeve's response was that he reduced the price of season tickets and general admission this season so the supporter's point was not arguable.  I replied that it was arguable when Lynn are the most expensive side to watch in the NLN.  I challenged him to name a NLN club that is more expensive than Lynn.  Again I am still awaiting a reply.

Bedford fans as it stands should prepare themselves for a 70% price hike for adults and over 100% for concessions, more if they want to sit. I don't think Bedford would object.  Potential for a bumper crowd if priced right.  Over to you Mr Cleeve.

Non League day is 24th September, as Lynn are away why don't they celebrate it against Bedford on the 17th?

Some clubs are reducing their prices for Non League day, Bromley for instance are reducing their prices, 15 adults (25% reduction) 10 concessions (33% reduction) Youths 5, under 12's Free seating no extra charge. Mr Cleeve would do well to take note of other clubs initiatives.  We wait and see.
