Malc raising £750 on a night won’t pay a decent strikers wages for a week.  That’s why SC’s idea of big outdoor concerts must be so appealing to him.  He is the man with the vision.   It be Will interesting to hear who he has signed up for next year. 

I can well imagine some thinking this is yet another Cleeve scheme which will put Lynn on the map.  He has to do something to fund it.
In them days it was more than enough and it was not one offs there were regular events. Blue and Gold was fully booked every friday and saturday night (including my functions). Bar take average friday and saturday evening (not saturday matchday takings) if i remember was £3K. asically averaged out 300 people minimum over the 2 nights at a tenner a head). Christenings sundays, wakes etc in the week when it was sensible money to hire.
I did ring SC on one occasion as one of my embroiderers wanted to hold his 60th there. He quoted £650, i said way to expensive. He said includes my (his) DJ which i replied he has his own DJ. SC replies well that is an extra £50 as plugging in to his electric supply! No booking.
I wouild think he has LOST more bookings than he has hosted all because of COST.

Were you ever asked for advice regarding the planned concert's at the Walks?

You're the only one that I know of who has experience of staging such an event at the Walks, and I know you have been involved in other events locally in the past over the years.

As a valuable font of knowledge on this subject, was it ever tapped into?
Yes approached and answered that i would not do them myself but would help anyone interested in doing them. Andy from Ikon then discussed to start with smaller events in the Blue and Gold with all profits going to the club. SC came up with a FEE to hire the B&G (although putting on for the club) so subsequently knocked on the head and a non starter.
On another occasion i asked SC, on an employees behalf ,cost to hire the B&G for his 60th. Substantial fee quoted which i said was far to much. The reply was that includes MY (SCs) DJ, to which i said he has his own DJ thank you. Answer was wel,l that is an extra £50 for using the required DJ to plug into the electrics. Subsequently NOT booked.
For my B&G events, average evening would raise minimum £750 less cost of DJ. Special nights such as NYE £1500 less DJ. The club kept the bar take. Noi charge to use the B&G.
Marquee saturday night minimum £4000 less cost of DJs or DJ and band. Club had the bar take. The marquee was paid by the club who only were going to use it on a friday night so i asked if i could use on the saturdays so as not to stand empty. Sundays i did do one all dayer following on from the saturday but apart from that were used for END OF SEASON Presentation days charging supports £5 that included a buffet. When the Presentations were later held in the Blue and Gold supporters paid £5 but no food/disco instead.

Doesn't he also own a company that sells football memorabilia?

SC's were more concise than David Hilton's official statement at Scunthorpe -

Lots of very worrying figures in there for a step 2 club which looks like it has fallen too far, too quickly without adjusting to it's circumstances.  Whilst many here, myself included, have long argued for more development of off-field infrastructure at the Walks, not sure any of us would want to see those sorts of figures, in terms of number of personnel or £s.  Leaving aside Mr Hiltons past, really just another indication of how football is 'broken'.
Blimey what a read.

To confirm I stepped down from the role as programme editor in June. And now very much enjoying Saturday's pleasing myself what I want to do after 20 odd years of mostly having little choice! Regards to all .
Heard you have also resigned as a trustee of Linnets in the Community.
You seen the light?

Gary Setchell coming back in next season. That could be a touch of irony.    Lynn relegated back to step 3, back to part-time.  Setch coming back in where he left it previously.  Budget slashed.  A balance sheet showing a 7 figure sum on the wrong side.   Could the Chairman’s self esteem really take all of that ?

CV could read....I came, I saw ...... I ????
I had the chance to load the bullets to sack Gary the last time. Myself and SC on the way to visit Joma at Harlow FC.
Gordon what is your opinion of Gary as a manager. Do you think i could sack him. My reply (not a lie) i have known Gary since the day he was born. I used to play football alongside his father Keith. Am i likely to answer YES. NO!
Yes that was the same day i paid the entire fuel bill, food and drink bill of his choice at his choice McDonalds on the A11 at Barton Mills because, his words, Gordon i have no cash or cards with me!

Just give the budget, which I’d say is much higher than when he was in charge, to Gary Setchell love or hate the lad he had passion imo wasn’t given a decent chance at all
Sensible quote Loopy. BTW how is brother Richard?

Be interesting to see what gate the next home game pulls in.  No good Mr Cleeve moaning about it.  It’s his Club, his call.
Well he told ex player Lee Hyde 'IT'S NOT MY PROBLEM'. Shrugged his shoulders and waddled off.
So who's problem is it then. The bloody coach driver?

BTW i've been blocked. I won't be able to sleep tonight. Nigel 1505 whoever you are behind your keyboard and M.A Hill with your brilliant ideas, you need to take your blinkers off. I support KLTFC and have from 1962 but this owner is the first since possibly Dolimore that is a walking disaster going from pillar to post with substantially less people on board than the past 7 days.
If i could only show you the piles of paper in the hands of solicitors.
The weekends twitter re the Academy/Elite child football was the absolute icing on the cake along with the match programme who's editor might need to check their emails in the next few days?
Interesting time ahead.

MA HILL its a Forum for all things football not just crossing the white line.
If you are frightened of the TRUTH then don't read it and until i am banned by the Forum i will continue to post the TRUTH. Lies and blasthemy are the bullets i need to load the gun. (Started loading) Solicitors is now tomorrow, not today because of the vast amount of paperwork handed over that they are going through prior to face to face tomorrow.
Finally i thank the massive messages of support that i have received so far. There are some good people in this world.

Can I just say that i have known GC for 60 years , and he is one of the most trustworthy men you would ever meet. With reference to SC, I dont know him hardly at all. But he does need to improve his skills on they way he goes about things. Ask an Australian!
Appreciate those very kind words. Only about 10 people maximum know what happened to me on friday so i was in a very bad place. (Nothing associated to KLTFC). But the support i have had since from so many people is amazing.

It seems with posts on I he is not only alienating the local business community ( Match sponsors seemingly as rare as Rocking Horse manure) but judging by today’s attendance he is doing a fine job of doing the self same thing to the supporters.

One question.   Where does Stephen Cleeve and the Club go from here ,?

With around 50 years in business locally, Chilly has supplied hundreds of business's based in Norfolk, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire (and further afield).

Due to the nature of the business he is in, he would have dealt with them on a repeat basis over the years.

These businnes's would not have continued to deal with him if they didn't think he was fair and honest when conducting business with them.

They also wouldn't deal with him if they didn't like him on a personal basis. Therefore, how do all these LOCAL business's feel when they see someone continually trying to drag a friends name and business through the mud? Not rocket science to understand that they are hardly likely to be knocking on the door offering sponsorship when they continually see such things on social media.

It's nice to see that it's understood that part of Chillys business is to sell shirts.

The important word here is "sell". Its not "give away".
Many thanks for the reply but it is actually 56 years of selling clothing within the whole of the UK that includes the NHS, RAF, Police Force, numerous clubs around the whole of the UK, last week kits to the Cotswolds etc etc. numerous kits that have been supplied by Double G have graced the Walks in the way of childrens matchday mascots. Are they now to be banned from being mascots if they are wearing such like?
I have never KNOWINGLY screwed anybody in my life and the price that i sell kits and every other type of clothing that we can supply  reflects in the fact that we are still going strong and have no thoughts of going away anytime soon.

I notice that Mr Cleeve has two of the clubs, historically, biggest supporters in his sights today.
First and only response before solicitors meeting Monday. Yes SC the same solicitor still as you took the P**S out of their surname leading to your apologies in the past.
TRUTH. Stephen Cleeve and KLTFC did NOT stop buying kits from Double G. Double G on receipt of payment of £780 in the february 2018 (prior to the Joma contract ending in the April) for an invoice from the previous June 2017, the invoice being the cost of the printing and/or embroidery to the thousands of pounds of FREE kit supplied and paid for by Joma/DoubleG as part of the contract. The same invoice that for at least 6 months SC insisted he had paid but could not remember OR PROVE how he had paid!  On receipt after me threatening to go to the ENGLISH FA i immediately went to business partner within Double G and said we have received the overdue monies, I want out of KL,TFC. His words what when the contract expires, my words no immediate, today and since that day DOUBLE G have refused to supply KLTFC subsequently there being the same balance of £0.00 outstanding as there was after eventual payment.
Now call me a LIAR again. More ammunition!

As for M A Hill no not in modern times but when i first went from 1962 there were hundreds of kids without parents or guardians. I have NEVER been to a football match with my parents.

Gordon, that's fair enough, but in 1962 you were already 23!

Ha bloody ha! Now ban me for swearing. LOL.
