Tony, I agree with your bit about local business. For years, maybe never, has there been a big local company trading nationwide, with a large advertising budget,employing 100's maybe 1000's of local people for the club to latch onto.
Totally disagree Blue Moon.
Master Foods, Coopers, Bespak,Germains, Fosters, Snap On, Lynn Star, Sandles, Stebbings, MKM, Jewson, Guy Raymond, Palm Paper etc etc etc. to name a few. When approached they are quoted Premier League £SD. quote]
Seemingly if you are prepared to become Commercial Manager you can have a free V.I.P ticket for your troubles! How long did the last one last. DAYS!

Gutted is an understatement. I will still personally support the team as and when i can and that includes the Reserves, Youth and Ladies but since the announcement we have been inundated with some very interesting sponsorship requests. Very interesting times ahead for Double G Clothing.
At least now i will not get the continuos barrage of discussion from supporters as to stock availability in the clubshop. Hopefully in the time ahead there will be ample stocks for people to buy on the  actual matchday. Not everyone wants to buy online.

Time for a change. As others have stated we have more than done our bit over 25 years. Perhaps its time for some fresh at KLTFC and we will find pastures new. Our phone and email have not stopped since it was made official last week. Some very interested propositions out there so in the next 2 weeks i am sure there will be announcements made.

Hi Mac, many thanks for those kind words. I enjoyed every minute of it  but all good things come to an end. Regretably in this case.

As respect for what we have done over the past 25 years it would be nice if OUR perimeter boards were to stay in place.
The club are moving on but at this point in time it is not suitable for ANOTHER sponsorship package from Double G.

It has been a truly sad day that Double G Clothing who have sponsored the Reserves since 2003 and the club since the early 90s (the largest ever sponsor financially) have severed all ties at this present time. We (Gordon and Graham, the 2 partners of Double G Clothing) would sincerely like to thank everybody in the way of staff, supporters who supported the clubshop in our running days, the supporters club and away travel and every single player that we either sponsored in the early days and subsequently that pulled on the DOUBLE G CLOTHING sponsored playing shirts and kit. There are 2 many good people to mention individually who appreciated what has been done for the club but they know who they are and the powers that be and the correct people have been told before this becomes common knowledge.Sincere good luck to the Reserves (they will need it) and who knows one day we may be back but rest assured we will be out there somewhere supporting football in the King's Lynn area.

I thought the Gresham tie up involved Ray Hall.  Is he involved with the New Academy?

Is that a fact that they only have eight signed up ? How can they play games without using kids from other places or bringing in some of younger Reserve team places on an ad hoc basis.

Surely Ian Culverhouse won’t want to put his name to this ?

Chilly are you still sponsoring the Reserves next season ?

After 16+ years what do you think we should do? When Graham is back from holiday we will then discuss and announce it on facebook probably!

Can't think why the club is having difficulty attracting new sponsors...
who said the club were having difficulty attracting new sponsors?

Didn't we have the ex Everton scout who "found" Wayne Rooney! Perhaps someone needs to contact Andrew Gedge at the College as to why the academy tie up never happened. At least you would get a truthful answer.

All fair points KES80.  With promotion the gap down to the reserves is now too wide and with the new academy starting in September that has to be one of the main priorities for the club.  I guess it then depends on the level of games the academy can compete at as to how you then find suitable 'adult' football for those players and those that little bit older who might still be on the radar of the first team.  Personally I think loans to various local sides are a more viable option, yes it takes a bit more organisation and management, but probably a better way to develop individual players, in the way Natty Stewart and Harry Limb were sent out last season rather than trying to run another side that has very little relevance to the first team. 

If someone wanted to go through all the hassle of setting up a King's Lynn based team to compete in the Thurlow Nunn then I am sure the club would gladly look to loan players there but the focus of what is still a very limited infrastructure has to be on the first team and academy.

As for the current Wisbech move for the reserves this season, it smacks as a bit of an afterthought and I certainly wouldn't have thought this is anything more than a short term solution
How can EIGHT yes EIGHT signings be classed as an ACADEMY. at that rate they will play in a Lynnsport 5 a side league. Yet another Whim.
