The very reason why as a club we leave this sort of stuff well alone. Would like a fiver for everyone of these rumours I've heard. I am interested as to the source of the starting point of this latest tale. You know where I am.....

I would refer you Mallard to the chairman 's notes in the Curzon programme ' One of my big ideas is now no longer going to happen or at least cannot happen in the precise form I wanted it to...' the article concluded ' The second piece of good news is still on and should complete at the start of October  when I hope to release the news'

Hope this of help to you.

As a club we only comment on facts, not rumours.

Not a problem. I just thought that after the two home wins and the general ' feel good' factor we should have had a few more for Curzon. The 750 - 800 figure I touted was based on the start I thought we may achieve in our early games with ' average form. I'm really happy with gate figures at present - the best football I have seen in 30 years from a Lynn team IMO.

Segregation is decided after consultation with the visiting club, Police intelligence and council officials. Our initial contact with Darlington suggested around 300 supporters would travel yesterday to support their team. In fact  all estimates from the visiting clubs have fallen short of the levels predicted where we have used segregation, resulting in what appears ' overkill' on the day.

To answer a few points raised here on the segregation issues.

The permanent area when erected will include an area of covered terrace for bad weather and will have entrance/ exit which will be used only by visitors. The permanent area, as most of you know, will be at the Tennyson end of the ground. the area will also include catering and toilets so all will be self contained.

Visiting supporters in the main stand will be housed at the Tennyson End of the Main Stand in a small area of seats divided by a net mesh. The Darlington fans who were in the stand Saturday were senior shall we say and had been arranged with the visitors ahead of the weekend that they would be ok to sit mixed for the afternoon.

The next fixture needing segregation will be Chester in October or any possible FA Cup fixture that may occur.

Natty Stewart was with the Reserves last Saturday but not in the week. Maybe involved today following Hawkins situation.

Harry still recovering from illness last I spoke with him two weeks ago.

I maybe should have worded my initial post a little better but Tony's post has hopefully made the situation clear.

I agree that Stamford is a well appointed stadium. I would guess that maybe a lot of the work was funded when they sold their old ground for, I would suspect, a hefty price a few years back. My understanding is that some new perimeter advertising has been sold at The Walks for the new season along with many renewals of existing ones.

To clarify the ground works etc.

We will not be relegated, have points deducted or given a fine if works are not complete by the first game of the season. The club has until the end of March 2020 to complete ALL work that has to be done. Work to the dugouts and press box have already been completed to fall in line with regulations. The club and trust are jointly funding the segregation work that involves fencing, toilets, catering point and turnstiles which is on going. Plans and consultation have to take place with various authorities locally and nationally to ensure the work is being carried out to the correct specifications. The plans have been lodged with the correct parties and once the intent is seen by the league etc you are given time to complete the work. If no intent is seen then the trouble begins. Hope this is of help to you all.

It's my understanding that Spennymoor have asked the league to have their first four matches away from home to complete their work etc. If that is the case then as it stands our trip there in September should be ok at the moment.

For Clarity. The season ticket covers 21 first team  league games and ALL home  league fixtures for the clubs other sides.

Cup fixtures will be ALL PAY as usual ( Inc Norfolk Senior Cup).

I understand there is no League Cup competition.
