Has joined Leiston on a month's loan.   New body in, or a spot of book balancing ?   New body in, or a spot of book balancing ?

Or possibly just getting him game time?

General Discussion / Re: Who was/is the better striker: Defty or Marriot ?

I was originally going to put Defty or Gash but Gash's goal-scoring not a patch on Defty.

I’d say it’d be a mistake to judge Gash just on his goal scoring record; he’s more of a goal maker than a goal scorer.

We don’t need another Central defender.  Loanees block games for regulars.  Ok, we haveFryatt and Smith injured (real pity, in both cases), but we have Barrows, Jones, and McCauley who all look comfortable there...  Barrows was superb last week.  Still only need 2 against Nantwich, though all 3 should be in the team, Jones or Barrows at Right back...But we must try to win this, to add to the building of this excellent season.....

Have to disagree, I’d say we need at least one defender in, as our bench is all midfielders, and a goalkeeper/coach. When Smith got injured, your right that Barrows was able to move across. But if we get another injury to our back four, who then? At least a short term loan, if only for cover is necessary, unless there’s a defender in the reserves who can step up.

Would just like to say, how disappointed I am with some of the behaviour of ours and Chesters fans today. 99% all well behaved but the other 1% not only shamed the club but also in the middle of it all, a steward was Injured. This isn't acceptable at any level of football. You paid to watch what turned out to be a cracking game of football then some ruin it by their stupid behaviour.
 
Unfortunately with the big games this is usually the case , I personally didn’t see any altercations just over exuberance celebrations ,hopefully injured steward recovers asap

From the stands I could see people pushing against the fence, crushing the stewards in the middle. Saw at least two cans being thrown from Lynn fans at Chester fans, and one going the other way.

That’s not exuberance. It’s reckless, dangerous and damaging the club they say they support.

Which is a shame as it really was cracking game.

Well no great surprise today with the result, though it sounds like Lynn gave a decent account of themselves.
Tough enough playing away to a full time side of 26 pros who have had a full week to prepare for what they see as the most important fixture over the last couple of weeks, but
Lynn with a squad of 16/17 and missing Fryatt through injury and Gash just returning from injury ( both as a result of the cup) only had 3 days off and two really tough encounters with Alfreton in the week.
You just can't have it all at this level with a small squad, however brilliant the coach or talented the players.
Just hope the 'player investment' in the cup run , really pays off now.
Lynn still sit third in the league and have a decent draw for the cup next week ..all to play for....onwards and upwards COYL !

Given that play-off places go all the way down to 7th, think we should realistically expect to be in them, given the start to the season. York this year seems like they might be comparable to Hereford in our league two years ago, with such a spending differential to turn the league into a race for second.

Good news indeed, and thanks to the organiser(s).  We’ll all have ideas for ground improvements, so here’s my two penneth......Better terrace at Tennyson Avenue end, and cover for one of the ends.  Perhaps catering or toilets at corner-ends of Walks terrace.  Then, of course, the turnstiles.  At last we have various opportunities for real progress as a club and a team, and I sincerely hope IC, SC, the groundsman, ( big thank you there), and the admin team, volunteers, and the Trust maintain the interest and ambition that have brought us this far....

Agree with most of that. The plans for development for segregation that have been released, seem to be fairly short-sighted, with the Tennyson End being where the split will be. This seems like it could be an issue if (big if) we go up again, as the home and away entrances will be on the same short edge, and on big games we’ll have crossing queues, which is always a recipe for trouble if tensions are high to begin with.

It would seem to make more sense to develop the hospital end as an away end. With a roof. Keeping home and away entrances separated along the long edges.

(If I’ve misinterpreted current plans I apologise.)

Nice tidy win. Should be favourites in the next round against Leek, and if we find ourselves in the 4th qualifying round, only 1 game from the cup proper. COYL.

Actually looks pretty awful weather forecast for Tuesday...but assuming it all goes ahead then I will go for
3-1 to Lynn if Gash plays and 1-0 to Lynn if he misses out.
Attendance around 500 if weather poor.

The weather as forecast does suggest we might not be playing Alfreton tomorrow after all. I’ll be keeping an eye on the website tomorrow afternoon for sure.

Lynn fans love a cup run, last time was 2006, as well as making money it also puts the club on the map, with business and more fans will come out of the woodwork, £6500+ is not to be sniffed at, ask SC.
Hi Mac and thanks for joining the discussion.
It will certainly bring money in. £6,500 is the reward for winning this round. There is over £2k just for competing in the round, so I believe the win 'bonus' is closer to £4k.
Just to put into perspective, the average Walks gate of around 1050 at £15 gives £15,750.

After factoring Concessions and season ticket holders, I’d imagine the figure from an attendance of 1050is closer to £12,000.

I hope he doesn’t go, but I wouldn’t begrudge him wanting him to work with a full time club. It says something of his calibre, that I think our promotion hopes would dissipate if henleft.

I do wonder if being given a run in first-team too soon effected him long term, or if his promise was never quite there.

Dread to think where the queue will start when the likes of Boston/York  come calling.

If the work on Sutton Bridge gets delayed; in Boston.

Surely the profit margin of buying at the BoxOffice is greater than buying online ?  Every penny counts.  Stephen Cleeve needs to upgrade the BoxOffice to get people through it quicker.  Why can’t there be another ‘BoxOffice’ even if the tickets are pre-printed to bring the numbers waiting down ?

Linked to the new away entrance and turnstiles perhaps? Would at least shift some of the queue elsewhere.

But they will still have to queue to get tickets!

They would but having and additional ticket office booth somewhere else would ameliorate the issue. Wouldn’t solve it, but 4 windows should be somewhat quicker than 3, ( or 2 as it was the other week). Plus if we get to the full segregation heights of Step 1 (still a ways off,) fairly sure that a separate ticket office area is recommended, as well as a separate ingress and seating/standing, toilets and catering. The biggest improvements the Walks needs, is for the non-Lynn fans.

It appeared the Alfreton no10 was having a tug at McAuley and the  he tried to swot him off and caught him.  The 10 made a right meal of it and the ref bought it.  Rory did give him a decision to make mind.

How long is the ban for violent conduct and when does it kick in ?

3 games minimum for violent conduct. Could in theory be more if the league thinks it warrants it, but don’t think that’ll apply in this case.
