I'm on the understanding that the covers can no longer be used.

It is Rod when you consider Tommy is more than happy to engage with the fans through a twice weekly interviews.  Well I say twice but itís hard for him to do a post match interview on away games when there is no one there from the Clubs media team.

I can't see the Clubs Media team having to work too hard for their money this week, as I'm sure the likes of Look East and About Anglia will be knocking the clubs door down for a story, without even needing to be invited.

Milly tweeted earlier that he's not being allowed in the Press Box on Saturday as he's being replaced by what he calls a "one game wonder". Guess that must be one of the big National Papers wanting a seat.

Mixed feelings on this one. National coverage for the Club is not to be sniffed at, but equally to relegate someone from the Press Box that represents one of our local publications (and a local business), and is reporting from the games and raising the profile of the Club week in week out, seems a bit harsh.

Apparently this is a Media Team decision, not one made by the Chairman.  :dontknow:

See somebody is clearly lying to me then, As I was told yesterday its a decision made by Mr Cleeve and nothing to do with the so called club media, But still I'm not surprised to be honest, Always quick to oust those that give the club coverage. Just short of 1,000 miles covered this month to give coverage and publicity. But its all good for the one game wonders to come and take peoples places. Shame we didn't see them at Scarborough and Southport, would of saved me a job!

Milly do you actually attend every game, home and away ?  If so makes perfect sense for the club to hand it over.  Reg seems to need all the help he can get.


Canít do all games due to my county darts commitments, Iím the chairman of Norfolk Darts, so once a month I miss a game. But stlll cover more than the current football club media team.

He should give you the log on details to the clubs twitter account acount and pay your entry or give you one one of the complimentary tickets when away.

Simple trade off.

I have to apply for myself for YLP anyway.


OK,  so how about the paper and the club doing a deal where the YLP becomes the official match reporter and use the clubs twitter feed, with mentions?  It has a far greater reach than the papers sports feed,  and you would make it a decent 'live' feed during matches.     

Thatís a conversation that needs to happen between the powers that be.

Let's hope that the Media team gets onto it. Worth a try, even if nothing comes of it.

If anything does come of it, I hope that it's a bit more than just Twitter. That would be no more than we currently have with what Milly is already doing, and just a re-branding of the service.

Iíd quite happily take over the running of the website, and then control the match day stuff.

Like Mallard says, surely a free entry for Milly to home and away matches is not too much to ask?

I assume, due to representing the local Press and being allowed access to the Clubs Press box, that Milly already gets free entry to the Home games.   :dontknow:


Yeah like most I am fortunate enough to get free access and Iím grateful for that privilege.

Praise where itís due Milly.  Shows the commitment you have to the cause.  Shame itís going unrecognised.

Easy fix really.  All SC has to do is get you back onboard to cover the games for and on behalf of the Club.  Win win.

Why not seek him out  Saturday and offer your services ?

The problem is, The Chairman wants everything for nothing and I'm not giving my time up for anything, I done all the socials before and never received a penny, A box a biscuits at Christmas time from Ian Culverhouse.

Everything has a price these days, I have to pay my own way to get to the away games these days with the group of lads I always go with. Got a so called "social media manager" that needs a map and compass to get to games. But still happy to tweet updates like they are there which isn't fair in my opinion on people that put the miles, time, effort and money to supply a service.
Can't believe you have not been shot down yet Milly with your very true comment EVERYTHING FOR NOTHING.  Well done for highlighting it yet again. Another person not afraid to speak the truth.

Itís not that Iím looking for trouble, my opinion is that theyíve got all these youngsters involved for free. Hence why they donít commit to travelling to away games as they probably canít afford it. Just donít appreciate my work being copied for no recognition, if anything the football club should be encouraged to tell people to follow people that attend the games rather then get things wrong pretty much all the time by working remotely.

But like I said thatís my opinion, If Stephen approached me and offered a few quid for my time and efforts then maybe things might change. And I know thereís more than one person to help get the situation sorted.

Thanks very much for the kind words. Returned back to Milsom Lodge at 01:40 to be up again for 5:30am for work.

Another no-show from the incredible club media crew, But still tweeting like they are at the game that annoys the living **** out of me, They get recognition for updates that they aren't actually providing they just copy everybody else.

But thanks to Mallard and Linnet for the messages of thanks, Things like that go along way.

The regular supporters of course will be there.  Itís the casual  fan the club needs to attract to make it a sell out.   Maybe the TV live will put some off as will the cost. 

Think the Clubs media Ďteamí could do with ramping things up to get the casual once season into the Ground.  Feel a bit for SC all season in truth  this area has seemed somewhat lacking.


Steady on Mallard, Asking the clubs media to do something like that is like asking for winning lottery numbers, And that's even with the new made up social media manager job. Who just for the record STILL don't even turn up to games home or away.

Well hopefully SC will increase his hours to get TW and his players the coverage they deserve.  Or has Reg got other things that are filling his time.?

Seen a tweet that Greg Plummer has managed to get 5 ( yes 5 ) pages of Coverage devoted to the Linnets in tomorrowís Lynn News.

Come on SC ( or Reggie) and get Plummer on the phone to help out.

like wise in the YLP

Great interviews on the Club website with TW and Setch.   Gary full
Of praise for Tommy and his team likewise TW very complimentary toward Setch and his boys.

Greg Plummer doing a fine job with the questions. No one seemingly there from the other main paper.


I was there also!

Would love to read and hear Tommyís take on the game today.  Sadly nothing on the Clubs website .  EDP has only an outline of the game today.  Did we have anyone there from the Media team, or donít they do away games.

Still should be use to it.


You moaned about me doing it before if I remember rightly, just donít agree with the football club tweeting things as if they are at the game when they quite clearly arenít.  Very very embarrassing if you ask me!

Youíll do well when I was the only person there!

Maybe they should inviting you to come back into the fold if you are the only one prepared to travel.   I thought Reg was paid to cover games home and away ?
