Thanks for the clarification B & G.

My personal take on it is this.

The Walks facility cannot now really support a reserves team.

As the first team progress, the club will hopefully attract many new fans and lose a few.

Hopefully people will get behind the Academy side.

If people would prefer to go to watch a rehashed Lynn reserves away from The Walks, then that is their prerogative.

Lost revenue......100at say £10 times 20 matches is £20,000 less salary costs, travel to away matches, kit costs etc...... personally don't think that's a huge financial loss for a successful NL side to bear. If you compare that, to say, the costs already spent on the pitch

Wasn't advocating the club creating anything in termsof the ressies........think someone else from outside will set something up....... unlikely to be in competition with the club as the levels are quite distinct and in any case there have always been alternatives for young lynn players...they haven't all found themselves in the reserves...lots of local teams to choose from.....and btw no need for this to turn into a them and us situation with people feeling bitter for eons........ surely people can see where the club is coming has to pull its limited resources together and adjust to survive.... hopefully any new set up for reserve level players will be on good terms with the club. IMO a bit sad that people seem not to be able to appreciate that...really hope people are not going to remain bitter and squabble about this long term......... it's atime for people to rally around and stay positive

Hi Mall.......... I think that Academy players, playing against lads from other club's academies has been the way of things in the upper echelons of Non league for some time now.
With Lynn's meteoric rise in the last few seasons, we have all been catapulted into a new field...and naturally it takes time for us to adjust....... however we do have to adjust, if we are to survive and be competitive. I have seen a fair share of Ressies matches at The Walks and can recognise the pain that some feel at losing them, but we have to understand that we are about to move into a completely new, full time era.

Local lads need an outlet, a local team to play for and I suspect something will develop, given how passionately people feel about the need. With the intention of trying to get the first team to play a particular brand of football at NL level, comes the need for a decent playing surface and it seems a tipping point has been reached, where there is too much demand on the precious Walks surface.

It seems unlikely that Lynn will leave The Walks anytime soon, so maybe the local lads who are not part of the Academy need a new venue and a new 'umbrella' to move forward under........I have a feeling that there is sufficient passion around the town, for something to form in the not too distant.

I completely agree with your posts Beardsmore and am wading in to help as you seem to be being ambushed by my good forum friends Mall and B & G  :laughcry: :laughcry:

Bottom line guys is that holding on to the past and being sentimental won't see the club survive at this level. This is a time for tough choices and the club has just made one which makes excellent sense on a number of levels.

It's obvious that a Thurlow Nunn side is of little use as a feeder to a NL side ....and to keep something going just because it always used to be there is not realistic.

I feel sure that something will arise out if the ashes to still make parents proud of their lads, as Mallard puts it....but there is no good reason for it to be connected with KLTFC any more.

KLTFC can be very much a Community Club without fielding a step 6 reserve side B & G..... it's time to move on and fully embrace where the club now is........some people still haven't caught up IMHO  :laughcry:

Def improved while with the Linnets, but IMHO, not quite quick enough or tall enough for what we need at centre half

"At the end of the day Saint," it all boils down to change... people generally tend to be resistant to change when it upsets their long established view of how things should ideally be.

A combination of successive promotions and the impacts of Covid are presenting clubs and fans alike with plenty of challenges, as things inevitably have to be "re-set".

I  personally Think that there will be a huge amount of players kicking around soon that would fit our level  as they drop out of the top 4  leagues  so I think the manager is just waiting for the right people. saying that on what I have seen  a fully  fit Simeon Jackson  would be  striker for us IMO.

Yes agree on both counts, but also from what IC has said, it appears Lynn maybe a player's 3rd or 4th choice, so it's a waiting game until the players options decrease and Lynn are suddenly a realistic option

13th of July. Going to be a busy 5 weeks to revamp the entire squad in time for the first friendly.

Yes, I was thinking the same, going to need a couple of newbies a week on average

Think that's fairly comprehensive.

No reason why the Academy set up can't do the same........ it's just a name at the end of the day.

So for the club I think it makes perfect use comparing with the good old days........."the times they are a changing".........indeed HAVE changed

My only concern would be that there needs to be a vehicle for Lynn youngsters who  are around Thurlow Nunn standard to play at that level.........but I am sure something will spring up over time.

However, I don't feel it should be incumbent on the club to provide this. Mr C's comment above about losing talent to the likes of Fakenham etc, indicates to me that maybe something new does need to form..........KLTFC are no.longer a little local entity and probably can't afford to spread their cloth so thinly to cover such bases in current climes, I would respectfully suggest.
