General Discussion / Re: Kings Lynn Reserves

This seems to be the modern way....an academy /u18s/u23 side instead of a "reserve side".
Last season, with the postponements, kind of indicated that the Reserves may not be at The Walks going forward.
Maybe as time moves on there will be a subtle name change to allow the team freedom of movement within the leagues and a continued slackening of the link with the first team/club.

Looks to me like there will be greater emphasis on the scholarship and under 18 system..(u18s still playing at Walks) in an attempt to unearth and develop talent that can make it at step 2 and above.
The difficulty with the Reserves is that they are now 4 steps below the 1st team, so it's a huge ask for someone to jump the widening gap. The club need any youth set up to be a genuine feeder for the 1st team. At least this way there is a vehicle for step 5/6 talent which may also be able to tie in with the Wisbech set up.........it has to be preferable to losing the Reserves completely.

Makes sense on many levels.....hopefully tho it won't affect the support the team gets too much.

Great, will it be an on line auction (a la Ebay) so you get the max for each item and we can all join in from afar ?

General Discussion / Sponsorship

I have just been trawling thro some of the National North websites. It's very noticeable how most have a supporters fund to supplement the playing budget.
Even the smaller clubs eg Guiseley, have 5 or 6 sponsors..home kit, away kit, media, ground, etc etc

Any news forthcoming on how sponsorships are progressing I wonder ?

The "Heed" are staying  a full time professional outfit I see, and staying at "The International Stadium ". Some nice venues to visit this year if you have the time and money to do it !

Absolutely Mike...a good positive opinion. Whilst we need to be realistic we also need to be really positive, passionate and fervent.....The Walks needs to be a cauldron next season...sides have a long way to come to play Lynn and won't relish it, if we get off to a good start. There are a few "big names", but they are in this league for a reason and we certainly shouldn't be over respectful of them. COYL

I also believe the first 6 or so league games will be important....a few points on the board earlydoors and a bit of momentum would be just the ticket....will keep the attendances and expectations high.... hopefully the fixture list will be kind...we could do without many of the big hitters away in the first half dozen games.
I think Lynn will surprise a lot of people this coming season......a settled squad, full of confidence, with a top manager at the helm.....been a while since that was the case.

Same would apply with a centre back wouldn't it ? 3rd choice behind Mc Cauley and Fryatt ?
That's why I think a utility player who can get stuck in and play central defender, defensive midfield or at a push target man, would be the way forward.
Squad doesn't look a lot stronger than last year, picking up on Tony's post, perhaps with the exception of Kelly on the wing and some young legs in the middle.
However, I think it is right that we stick with the current core squad that has got us this far. The likes of Hawkins and Limb have a chance to really stake a claim at this level......and they will need to, to be part of the setup going forward. I personally think they will do well.
I think this current squad will be competitive at step 2. I suspect the top 5/6 will be tough to play and will ask serious questions, but I think Lynn will be fine.
I suspect IC will tinker with the squad as and when it becomes necessary.

Think there will just naturally be more squad rotation than last year due to the demands of the league. Can see 16 being used on a regular basis with another 4 coming into the match day planning at other times.
Another centre half,(who could double as target man ) and a tough tackling, midfield ball winner still required.

Good work there.  If Barrows signs up thatís a squad of 17. Will that be it or maybe one more to come ?

I think the number thatís been banded round is 5, but with Natty Stewart returning that would leave us very heavy.


Still need a bit of steel. It's likely that one of the central defenders and one of the forwards will miss some games due to suspensions or injury. Say Gash and McAuley are out for a handful of games at the same time. Would like to see a utility guy who can mix it who could play central defender/defensive midfield and also at a push treble as target man

Personally, I think this Lynn squad will surprise a lot of people next season, 5 quality signings needed (one as replacement For FBT, one tough tackling, ball winning no nonsense hard chap in defensive midfield, one replacement centre half,as cover, one replacement forward, as cover and a utility squad man.

Might be wrong but thought the quote was something like a couple of signings coming in this week AND we will be looking atthe loan market carefully (?)
