Also remember Bobby Laverick, although I was a small lad at the time I cried when Bobby decided to leave Kings Lynn. The point however regarding Bobby Laverick was that he lived in Vancouver Avenue.............please correct me if I am wrong but I was always under the impression that the football club owned the property together with several other houses in Kings Lynn to include a detached house in York Road where Malcolm Lindsay lived.

When were these properties purchased and could Lynn attract better players with the promise of living accommodation, part time work, whilst also receiving a wage for playing football? Did one or two players run pubs?

From notes on 1951-52 season: "Lynn's problems with finding accommodation for their players continued. A house in St Edmunds Avenue, Hunstanton, that had been converted into two flats, was occupied by Walter Price and Cecil Heydon neither of whom played for Lynn anymore. Lynn resorted to court action to try to remove them but although it might have been logical to assume that the players would vacate the premises when they no longer played for Lynn, there appeared to be no written contract."

Club statement:
"As part of a restructure process within the football department the decision has been taken to withdraw the club’s teams from both the Thurlow Nunn Football League (step 6) and the Thurlow Nunn Youth League competitions with immediate effect.

The football club formally informed the Thurlow Nunn League of it’s decision to withdraw it’s teams from both of their competitions by e-mail late on Monday evening, with the club receiving formal acknowledgement by return e-mail from the league late Tuesday afternoon.

The decision has not been taken lightly, with the lack of a venue to both play and train for matches being a major stumbling block. Another reason is the fact that most of the players for both teams either are or will be enrolled in the club’s highly successful Academy partnership with KES which will see an Under 19’s team competing in the National League’s Under 19 Alliance competition, meaning we wouldn’t have the resources to compete in all competitions in a way which would effectively benefit all players. The Academy side will represent the club in next season’s FA Youth Cup competition.

The club will ,of course, do all they can within their powers to assist the small number of players who are left without a club following the decision made."

Thank you, gentlemen.
I was inspired to write something after listening to the live stream where the commentary referenced the Hospital End and I just wanted to put forward the case for the Seven Sisters before the name is lost forever.
