Suspect that might be it for friendlies ...quite a "fair few". Majority of them away for a reason I guess.

It seems to be the way many are moving forward. I see it more of a long term thing and not a whim. I would have thought (if its not already being done) that some scouting should be done at the local schools and colleges. I can remember when I was at KES there would be scouts at our matches (can remember a Norfolk schools guy and a guy from Peterboro) in attendance looking at one or two of our guys when we were at home to Boston Grammar.

Sorry Mallard, your post makes much more sense in the light of the 2nd pitch...apologies for my ignorance......am aware of the facilities at Dereham....pleasantly surprised that Wisbech have something similar.....presumably someone has asked the council on the viability of a training area in the Walks just outside of the ground

Aha Mallard..my apologies.
Suppose that's a possible but if their pitch is being used once or twice every week for matches, plus Wisbech training on it, I wouldn't have thought it would take Lynn training on it also.
Quite surprised Lynn Ressies might use on  Friday and then Wisbech day after.

Nope wouldn't have thought so ...IC has limited time and will need to devote it to 1st team and Academy. As far as I am aware he doesn't get involved with Reserves...why would he ? Think you are misreading the purpose of Reserves playing at Wisbech Mallard my friend.

Some good points there Tony, certainly wouldn't disagree with any of the points you make

Sadly you can't have much sentiment if you are running a football club these days. With promotion comes hard choices....players are let go and arrangements alter..its the way of things. You cant have first team, reserves, under 18s and womens sides all using same pitch. A larger more expensive first team squad is required this year. The Reserves model, currently 4 steps below the first team doesn't now work for what it was originally intended...ie a feeder to the first team. Therefore it really is just a vehicle for local players at that level. So I guess this year is a bit of a transition year for the ressies. I personally think the move makes perfect sense. Should one of the current reserves really stand out this year or be needed in the firsts thro say injury, they will be available eg say Pedro is out for a few and  Congreve joins the squad. It keeps the ressies at a decent football stadium for their level and going forward if the u18s develop well, some of the current ressies may eventually join up with Wisbech where there is already a strong ex Lynn contingent or find alternative teams.
The Chairman has stated his ambitions...as the first team moves forward a step 6 ressies side surely just doesn't work as part of the main set up.
Maybe in time people will enjoy the Academy side at the Walks in place of the old ressies ( ?)

Sporting Lynn FC (if they eventually end up at Lynn Sport) or Lynn Wanderers (if they permanently use Elgoods ground and don't amalgamate with Wisbech).

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 ?

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 !
