perhaps their arms were not twisted far enough up their backs to sign on, with the threat of never playing for King's Lynn if they didn't.
Surely they should be dual registered if they are also helping out Downham reserves.
£7 concession, no thanks. There will be football league grounds AGAIN cheaper than that.
God help us if we get through and draw Manchester Utd youth. We will have to win the lottery to pay to see it.

One of the legends of the KLFC in the 60's. Often bumped into Ronnie at Whites newsagents getting his daily newspaper but not seen him lately although i only live 150 yards from his home.
R.I.P Ronnie and thanks for those for me early days memories.
Sincere condolences to his family.

General Discussion / FA YOUTH CUP

I see that on the home page that the Youth team are at home next tuesday to Cambridge City. Spectators are allowed and adults will be £7 children free.
Best i get my old KES short trousers out see if i can get in for free!
I wonder if the teams have agreed this seemingly rather high amount especially if the Lynn team is made up of players helping out Downham Town Reserves in the Anglian Comb where i would imagine the entrance for league games is ZERO.

I had the pleasure to see Hendo make his debut for KLTFC in a midweek game for the then RESERVES.
He was head and shoulders the best player on the park despite knowing nobody, you would never have guessed that he had not been their  long prior to that game.
Hendo you will be sadly missed and clearly Gorlestons gain. I can imagine your weekly mileage will drop by several hundreds of miles.
The most important thing is to enjoy your game and hopefully the new circumstances will allow that to happen.
All the best.

Good idea, if it is about the club, staff and the players and not full of adverts.  Possible £3000 profit or more so why not.
Have you ever seen a programme without adverts? Its the sponsorship of the adverts by the said businesses which will also be forthcoming as well as the customers paying X£ for it.

Well Gordon has to do something to show he is worth that salary.


I donít think this issue should be clouded by what Keith Rudd has given to the Club.  His dedication and loyalty to Kings Lynn Football Club has been immense over the years.  This was recognised by his elevation ( attempted or otherwise) to the high office of President.

He might not agree with the way the club is run, but should he then take it upon himself to write letters to KES slating the club and itís senior members.?
Surely There can be no better organisation than the Towns football club to run the Academy and Youth structure within the area.    A path forward to the first team is there now.   Whether players will be good enough to climb those steps is another matter.
So what was wrong with the KL Community Football set up that over the years has supplied a massive amount of players that went on to play for the King's Lynn Youth Team, Reserves and subsequently the first team. The same Community Football programme that had a now USA international player in its ranks.
So someone comes along and threatens last years crop that if they don't jump ship and join King's Lynns Academy then they will never play for any of the King's Lynn teams. BRIBERY.
The same KLTFC that slagged off the coaches at KLCF to then take 2 of them on board! HYPOCRISY.

Did I not read that the said person who turned up didnít inform the club that they had changed their address. I suppose the club should of hired a private investigator to find out why they didnít respond to any notifications that were sent.
Allegedly the mother must have changed her email address!!!!!!!!!!!

Keith Rudd has been long distanced from the club and as he said it was a title made up previously that has never been set in stone.
Therefore although it has been spouted off that he is no longer President he never held that title.
As for not wanting the youth of the area to be given opportunity one thing that Keith has been involved in for many years is bringing on the King's Lynn Community Football scheme to where it is today for KLTFC to then AGAIN start up their own academy threatening certain players in the past that if they did not sign up for the latest scheme or the abandoned one they would never play for KLTFC.
KLCF is not an academy so therefore would not benefit from the financial handouts that a club receives for each player signed on.
Going back to Keith he remembers what happened 13 months ago when the Academy was folded 24 hours before the youngsters that had been signed up were due to start their education and academy duties.
One even turned up on the monday morning with his suitcase as his parents had paid for lodgings for each weekday, having not been informed it was CANCELLED.
If only the HONEST truth was to come out and listening to the Likes of Keith being as worried as he is that this is not about education and coaching this is about HOW MUCH MONEY CAN WE GET FROM THE FA!

And finally Loopy Linnet very concerned that you have come out from hibernation knowing exactly what Keith Rudd has done for KING'S    LYNN FC in previous guises, the youth of the area and football in general.

I have had nothing to do with chasing sponsors but yes there are lots of sponsors over at Heacham including the company that were approached to be main sponsors at KLTFC at an exhorbitant cost.

Yes Blue and Gold. When we severed our ties with the new KLTFC in april 2019 we were immediately contacted by numerous local clubs who were aware of the commitment we had with King's Lynn more so since 2002. Along with my partner Graham we decided to sponsor Heacham Fc, King's Lynn Community Football (that according to O'Neills was Kings Lynn Town FC)and also The College of West Anglias Sports Campus. Knowing what we know now this has been an amazing near 18 months for Double G and the feedback has been amazing.
Again we are appreciated just like the old days at the Walks.All of the new sponsorships are for a 3 year term and hopefully this can be extended.
Senior football at Heacham, seeing the youth of the King's Lynn area thriving at KLCF despite attempts to scupper it and seeing the students at the sports campus getting further education and the opportunities to go with it. HAPPY DAYS.

Why not? Their supporters club went over the 100 applications on Saturday. Not bad for less than 4 weeks in the making. Yes over 100 for little old Heacham.

Perhaps the tie up came about because little old Heacham have 3G facilities as well as 2 full size pitches.
Well and truly used now with the amount of teams using it.
Lynn Ladies will be playing their home games at Heacham this season.
In respect of saturdays game, ex Linnet Nathan Daw had a great game and the evergreen Jack Defty took advantage of the keeper spilling in the ball to calmly blast home.
Club also supplied a great programme for their first shot at senior football.
And yes a bottle of water is 50p and the pasties looked like pasties.
