General Discussion / Researching former players
« on: May 29, 2020, 09:13:32 AM »
I have had a couple of enquiries recently from people researching former players.
If anyone has any information please can you DM me and I will pass it on?

First: Graham Thomson. He is, as far as we know, Lynn's youngest first-team player making his debut on  Tuesday, May 3rd 1955 against Bradford City Reserves at the age of 15 years 9 months and 5 days.
He went on to sign for Spurs as a youth team player. Does anyone know of him?

Second: Peter McCall. He had a successful career with Oldham and Hereford but is said to have attended KES in Lynn.
Peter passed away in February.
An article in the Bristol Post suggests he was scouted playing for Lynn and joined Bristol in 1952 - which means he would have been 15-16 years old.
I doubt that this was for Lynn first team but might have been for the Reserves or at schoolboy level. Unfortunately, the lack of access to the library rather hampers any research.

We have completed our research into “fans” that have bought Under 16 and kids tickets it turns out that many of them are well over 18 and in some cases have been using Carer passes when going in alone.  We have a list and those who are guilty have one chance now to DM me
The list is around “20 fans” many of them well known to some of you anyway we won’t miss the revenue
agree to pay off what they should have paid (we may agree a payment plan) and promise never to do it again.  If you don’t we will name and shame those fans in the York programme and you will be denied entry to that game and future games.  It is not fair on loyal fans who pay

From Ossett United's GoFundMe page
"On Tuesday 12 November 2019 a court in Manchester found in favour of a semi-professional player who suffered a broken ankle playing for Radcliffe Borough in a game against Ossett Town. The league recommended insurance policy did not protect Ossett from damages or legal fees for the claimant should this case be lost, which it was, now leaving them with a £135,000 court order.

Not only does this put the entire club and the future of football in the town in jeopardy but also opens up the floodgates for all injured sports participants to successfully sue and win substantial money from the person who injured them and their club. This can then filter down to recreational sport like 5-a-side football where an individual can sue an opponent should they receive an injury during a game. This will change not only football but sports participation throughout the country at every level. Can you afford to pay a player injured at your club £135,000, because Ossett cannot."
