Yes but you do have to be able to defend solidly and win the ball in the first place otherwise your slick midfielders won't get a touch ..... possession is key, slickness comes after

I am really enjoying trawling around the various websites for the teams in National North. Many have a couple of 27/28 year old forwards with past league experience. Am thinking that Lynn could do with another body to back up our centre halves.

Having a busy time with transfers, including 2 new forwards I see.

Yes , all laudable. I was really referring to Commercial Sponsorships....hopefully we will hear some news soon. I have just read that Elgoods are sponsoring Kettering's TV coverage  again this year. It occurs to me, that with the current Wisbech connection on the Elgoods Stadium  maybe there is a deal to be done with such local breweries in return perhaps for selling their products in the football bar ?

Disappointing  Academy numbers......I happened to see that Alvechurch had 150 turn up for their U18-21 Academy trials and had to extend the event to run over two days. Obviously their catchment area is vastly diff, but I wonder what they are doing that is drawing them in

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 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 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 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 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 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.
