Until we know which league we are in for certain could also be a factor?

I wonder.......were the gate receipts from the bumper attendance greater than they would have been if normal prices had been charged and the gate had been around the norm of 100 to 120?

If so this positive marketing initiative is surely worth repeating selectively at first and reserve games next season?

I agree that with such a young team we need that experience / leadership on the pitch - particularly when the going gets tough.

IMO sorting the pitch to encourage decent passing football must be very, very high priority, closely followed by a pitch marking device that caters for those with less than 20/20 vision.

Isn't it what the 2.00 increase in entrance for?, To increase the budget.
Also with the great honourable chairman shooting his big mouth off about  The Trust not handing him money, why don't he get off his arse to actually do something about sponsorship be it shirt, advertising boards, the stand etc. Or employ someone who can do it. And be realistic with prices, this is little non league King's Lynn not Premiership Chelsea. Something is better than nothing, even having a raffle for the shirt sponsor, making contact with local businesses in Lynn and surrounding areas say at 500.00 a ticket and the winner becoming shirt sponsor for the season. Better than bleating about not being able to get a sponsor.

1. Apparently there is a sponsor lined up.
2. The advertising boards are up to date and paid for.
3. The main stand IS sponsored, Adrian Flux Insurance.

I am not a fan of the chairman, btw.

What about sponsorship of the stadium......Think this was mentioned some time ago?

Innovation that deserves to attract a bumper gate and better than average revenue.

Metts could do well with the right service something like big Sam has done with Bentakie can't spell it but it's something like that ,I don't like to see centre forwards chasing after balls the ball should be delivered to their feet

Don't know how Mettam has been performing generally but after initially scoring regularly then getting injured he has not been in any way prolific. Bradley Wells being Spalding's main striker with the second highest goal tally in the league.

So contract list is: Street, Hilliard, Hawkins, Edge, Tom Ward, Warburton, Castellan, Gaughran, Mettam
Ian Culverhouse says there will be a number of players leaving during the summer.
I assume those on contracts will stay, Mettan to be decided, so who will be going?
Yong, Zielonka, Clunan, Marshall?

Out of those not on contract, there aren't actually any in my mind who are obvious candidates for release.

Yong's as good as any full-back in the league, and did a decent job for a lot of the season playing out of position in a back 3.
Marshall and Clunan are very capable midfielders.
And Zielonka has proved himself a consistently performing utility player.

20+ goal a season striker aside, there isn't a glaring weakness. Just need to get the team playing more consistently.

Having said that, I do hope we get one or two class apart signings for next year. I'd be disappointed if they are largely players of a similar standard to what we've already got, as Everington has turned out to be. The performance of the reserves has also shown that we don't need signings to fill out the bench. Just a couple of stars.

Agrre with that in its entirety!!

As a very long standing but inceasingly disillusioned supporter I just do not understand how the apparent 'divide and rule' policy can be anything other than divisive, destructive and ultimately self defeating. Having differing factions amongst supporters seemingly pulling in different directions does not bode well IMO

I have no agenda but do have a perhaps utopian and unrealstic view of our club and that its leadership should be primarily be engaged in harnessing all of the recources at its disposal to bring about the greatest potential benefit to the club and its supporters................We appear to be one hell of a way from that even starting to happen.

Personally I don't want to see a team of locals giving their all to come 17th in the league.  We need to make progress.

I don't think anyone wants that.

What most want is a team of locals giving their all and coming first.....   Now that's the ambitious progress most of us want...  And why not us?

Why not the players from West Norfolk?  Why not us? Under the right leadership we are as good if not better than anyone else....

I'll second that view!!
