I have not seen the Sutton accounts but wonder how much they generate via sponsorhip as their match day income would not be anything special.

Match sponsorship            1,800
Miscellaneous sponsorship 61,650
Sponsors' Club                  9,300


Gate receipts
Senior team league matches  34,447
Senior team cup matches       3,700
Senior team friendly matches 11,409
                                            49,556

The senior team gate receipts don't add up!  Is that per home match? They get around 1500 for a home game. If you assume that the average ticket price is 10 then that would = 15,000 per home game. Where does 34,447 come from, I wonder? I'm not expecting you to know Adam...

In the Desborough team tonight against Corby. Seems he is player-coach there.

Jack Defty in the first season after reformation,over 50 I believe in the first season?
That is impressive Grissles. Is part of the Defty legend built upon the fact that he stayed around to play at step 5 after the reformation?

Confused.com here. What is the difference between a 3G pitch and a 4G? Is there even such thing as a 4G surface ?
I just got a large Vodafone bill for my son's mobile data usage 
So 4G probably still on my mind!

The simple answer to generating revenue to build a team capable of reaching the dizzy heights to which some aspire is increasing the size of the attendances. The people of King's Lynn need to get on board with the project. The club need to do more to get people through the turnstiles. Putting the onus on the team to be successful first is to make the players and management solely responsible for the success of the club and assumes that the potential supporting community have no part to play in this.

Wow 6.5k a week based on a 40 week season. Unless our new owner is going to put his hand in his pocket 12 admission is not going to cut it to compete at that level
Ticket prices at Sutton are 15 for an adult. I couldn't locate the accounts on their website but presumably they also generate revenue through the use of their 4G?

hmm i wonder if salford city (7) will apply the same logic. seeing as stockport  and halifax charge 15.

That's a fair point Marcus.

Salford are, however, probably  better placed than Lynn to attract funds from elsewhere.
Their attendances are also more than double the size of Lynn's.
Some might say that attendances are higher because of the lower ticket prices but demand from football supporters to watch matches is generally inelastic and insensitive to ticket price changes.

If more fans came to watch Lynn, it would be easier to attract a more lucrative sponsorship deal. These two increases in revenue would mean that the club could keep the ticket prices as they are.

So, the solution for me is that the club needs to do far more to increase its fan base - everyone knows this of course but what is the club actually doing on this front? There have been loads of posts about this issue over the years, I realise, but this is clearly an area where the club needs to be more active.

In conclusion, I probably feel that actions to increase the fan base should precede ticket price increases.

Weymouth charge 11 for terrace and stand; 8 or everyone else unless under 16.

My 16 yr old son and I currently stand at Lynn for 10 + 4 = 14 - this would be 19 at Weymouth.

Even with the proposed increase at Lynn of 2 it would still at ( 12 + 4) = 16 be cheaper than Weymouth.

Don't see how this is relevant Stan. Weymouth is Weymouth. I want to see my team, Kings Lynn, play.

However, whilst you're on the subject. I see Weymouth's gates are down 12% this season. A premonition maybe ?!?



Barmy - it's relevant to this post as some are contending that a 2 ticket price increase seems unreasonable. I'm just pointing out that, within the context of the ticket prices of other clubs at our level, 2 doesn't seem as unreasonable as some are suggesting. No one wants to pay more if they don't have to - I certainly don't either but if the current market price for tickets at our level is higher than we are currently paying you can see the club's logic here.

Assuming that Weymouth's attendance drop could be due to their current prices is a bit tenuous Barmy.

Who could forget his 9 minute hat-trick against Lynn when playing for Wellingborough in Dec 2011. Lynn signed him soon afterwards and he went on to score 26 goals in 42 games for Lynn. Whilst I acknowledge that his goals were scored at steps 4 & 5, does any Lynn striker have a better goals per game ratio?

The match highlights appeared to show that it was a penalty and and that their keeper did handball it.

Could the ref have been certain about the handball? No - the hand was on the far side of the ref - impossible for him to be 100% confident.

Was he in a position to give a penalty? Their 7 put his arm across Revan who went down very easily in the box. Ref would not have been able to see the arm and so wouldn't have been able to give the penalty.

I thought the ref was poor however and let Leamington get away with far too much.

Boston Utd charge 13 to stand and 15 to sit.

Slough Town charge 10 to stand and 13 to sit.

Perhaps Lynn should increase the seating prices and leave the standing prices at 10.

I'm quite often critical of Gaughran but thought he played well yesterday. I enjoyed watching him flatten that Leamington player.

Chatting to a Leamington fan, he felt that they are in a false position in the league: they weren't that good. He said the best team that he's seen this season are Hitchin. Hitchin are definitely the best Southern Prem side I've seen at The Walks this season.
