I see Weymouth are reducing the numbers to be admitted following Saturday's match

I doubt theyíll be the last. Itís seems the stadium safety group are operating a two strikes policy. 1st incident, capacity reduction. 2nd, stadium bans.

I hope Lynn fans that plan to go the Walks anytime soon take note of this.

will streaming  be allowed if fans are allowed in

Iíd hope so, given clubs are being encouraged to have home fans only policies, to try an limit people in Tier 3 going to matches in Tier 2.

The Sports Ground Safety Authority have added an extra caveat to the number of fans who can attend games.

The number of fans allowed can't exceed 'the socially distanced capacity of the ground'.

The guide to calculating that capacity can be read here:

So one person per usable 1m2 if fans are required to wear masks at all times at the stricter measures are used.

Or one person per usable 2.6m2 if fans are required to wear masks in getting to their designated area, but not whilst in said area.

Leading to anywhere between 17% and 33% capacity in seated areas, and 20-50% capacity in standing areas.

Quite a lot is left to the clubs discretion within the guidelines by the looks of it. I guess it's to spread the blame if something goes wrong.

Will 2000 want to attend?
What health and safety measures are needed?
Face masks to be worn!
Two metre space at the loos!
NO indoor catering. Can we bring a flask, are own multi pack chocolate bar and sandwiches!
After taking care since March I will make do with Radio Norfolk, the Championship on Quest and Match of the Day all of which constitutes an adequate diet of football !!
The live football will be enjoyed by the players/management
starting with the great occasion for them next Saturday- a great reward for their efforts in recent times.
STAY SAFE - Be patient and look forward with optimism to eradication of the virus!

With a 2 metre space in the loo queue, itíll have to lap round the pitch.

Working in education with the high case rate we have, Iím wary to go myself. Not because Iím all that concerned with getting ill (being on the right side of 40), but I worry about being an asymptomatic carrier, having seen the impact such can cause. Having already decided itís too much of a risk to go the mother-in-laws at Christmas (shame), I canít really justify going to matches.

Streams and radio it is for me this season unfortunately.

It needs more detail.
I assume away supporters will not be allowed?
It's bad enough that some home supporters might travel together.
Interesting to see on Ollie Bayliss' chart on Twitter that the Walks has an 8,200 capacity.

Meaning that the York game was only half full?

If itís tier one then more will be allowed in.

Taken from Ollie Baylis twitter page

Small blue diamondIn tier 1
50% of capacity or 4,000 (whichever is lower)

Small blue diamondIn tier 2
50% of capacity or 2,000 (whichever is lower)

Small blue diamondIn tier 3
No fans allowed

How quickly can the terraces be marked out into two metre squares? Itís a big leap up from the 600 that had been allowed lower down.

And you wonder how strictly social distancing will be enforced? Will enforcement be proactive or retroactive? If thereís scenes of mass congregating after the first week of fixtures, will this change be one and done?

As I understand it those Clubs at Step 3 and below who are still in the FA Cup are now not allowed to train ( as a group) or play any games until the 2nd round.

Maybe we would fancy one of those ?

I believe the teams that are still in the FA Cup (as an elite competition) are still allowed to train. But will not be playing any games outside the 2nd (or subsequent) round of the FA Cup.

Shows how arbitrary the rules are, and may give them an advantage, as they can train for 3/4 weeks with their mind on one game, whilst teams above have a full schedule, and other teams in their league are forbidden from training.

I wonder if a viable option to the training venue situation would be to turn the walks pitch into an artificial sutton could then be held at the walks....all of the clubs team could play their home games there...and there would also be the option to hiring it out to the community... :dontknow:
An initial big outlay granted but the long term benefits are there for all to see.... :dontknow:
I dont know how much an artificial pitch would cost but the outlay over recent seasons on the existing pitch seems to be substantial and by looks of it....never ending

Thereís the issue that as the ground is owned by the council, theyíd have to approve it. And with the one at Lynnsport not being utilised anywhere near capacity, they might not want another pitch that can be hired out competing with them.

Plus, if the impossible happened and we get promoted, itíd have to be torn up again.

The mystery to me is, why was he the "second choice" keeper?   :dontknow:

Lynn News report:

The only reason I can think of, is because Norwich said he was. Very disappointed by this. I wonder if there had been crowds in this season, whether IC might have changed his mind about benching Pedro after a good start.

PPG with Pedro = 2

PPG with Mair = 0

Grants without a transfer embargo just feels wrong.

It seemed to me that whilst Mair has proven himself to be a fantastic shot-stopper, his ability to command and organise his defence isnít quite up to scratch at the minute, and no one else in the backline is stepping up to organise it in Pedroís absence.

I think dropping pedro has unbalanced our defence as a whole, and I present not only the 8 goals conceded, but the general sense of being lost from the last two games as evidence for such.

This on SCís Twitter

Stephen Cleeve

Looks to me that the Govt may be backtracking on the amount of money being given to The National League.  £1.6 million to the Arts, hundreds of millions to hospitality but the League can't even get £ 3 million a month! Shifting sands from either the DCMS or The Treasury DANGER

As the unemployment rate creeps up, the government will find it an ever harder sell to justify giving taxpayers money to clubs, many of whom have multi-millionaire/billionaire owners, who were active in the transfer market at the same time as saying they needed a bailout.

It said Ďaroundí 3M, so who is to say it might even be over that figure.  Think Lynn should be looking at 40k plus.   We are around the 22nd best supported club in the 66 team structure.  So should look to be. In the top 33% of payouts.

3m divide by 66 clubs comes out around the 45k mark

Depends if there is divisional weighting applied. Any idea if there will be a transfer embargo linked to these payments. Itís not beyond the wit of man that some unscrupulous owners would use the bailout money for means beyond those intended, and I hope there are some tight restrictions to prevent such.
