I'm intrigued by the line-up on the BBC football website: 4-4-2:
                        POWER MCAULEY
Perhaps they know more than we do?

How surreal was that! Watching KLTFC playing at this level with TV coverage whilst sat in my armchair in The Algarve. Would I have predicted all that 5 years ago? A fantastic effort by all concerned and a commendable performance against a decent team. I have followed the Linnets since 1967 but it is a long time since I saw them live. Let's hope we get more coverage as the season progresses and hopefully with some fans cheering us on. Performance-wise I thought that Carey looked extremely comfortable at this level and I think he will play a big part this season. Yesterday was proof that we can play at this level. COYL!

Advice needed. I received an email yesterday to watch Lynn v Kettering on Saturday at 2pm. The question is do you have to buy the ticket to the streamed match on Saturday or can you do it beforehand? I have tried several times but just receive a '404 error'. Cheers :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

On behalf of the football club may I thank each and everyone of you for your kind offers, words , donations and support shown towards the football club at this very , very difficult time. As has been mentioned we have today set up a link on the football club site where you can donate if you wish by  clicking  the match ticket link , then ' Linnets donations ' and the options will then pop up. Thanks again. I will be posting a total to date figure here around 7 pm each evening starting on Thursday.

I will be popping in here from time to time to keep you updated. At the moment the season is only suspended until April 3 rd. We expect to have further information ourselves as to the next steps to be taken around that date. I will also attempt to answer any questions you may have here or you can e - mail me at or call me on 01553 760060 .

Myself and the chairman plan to do a podcast at some stage shortly which will be available to view in the not to distant future.

I continue to be busy on various club business in these very difficult times we are all now facing.

Stay safe, keep well and look after each other.




I now reside in Portugal so being unable to attend any of the matches I rely on these  posts and the Saturday/Tuesday match reports to keep me in touch. I moved to King's Lynn in 1975 and would be devastated to experience the demise of the club. Hence tonight I have made a £100 donation to the club. However, I would like to make the point that this process is not that easy for the non-savvy person using the website. In view of this, would it not be possible to add an easier link to take the potential donator directly to the page instead of having to trawl through the website in order to find it and in frustration deciding not to donate. Long live The Linnets :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: .

All teams in the course of a season have to hit a flat spot and go through a poor spell of form.  Maybe this is ours.   Up to IC to pull us out of it ASAP.  Luckily we have the games in hand  to cover for this downturn.  However just as winning becomes a habit so can losing.

Over to IC to get this back on track.
I know this may sound obvious but I really believe that the next match against Altrincham is going to very important. Two consecutive defeats will demonstrate to the rest of the league that we are not invincible. I think if we had come out of the Chester & Altrincham away fixtures with 2 draws we would have been not overly concerned. A win on Saturday would be better points-wise than the 2 draws so all is not lost (as long as we win!). We are exactly two-thirds of the way through the season with 14 matches to play (6 home + 8 away). Of the 14 remaining matches we still have to visit 5 of the 7 bottom teams but these are all away fixtures and these teams will be trying their utmost to get the points to stay in the league so these will not be as easy as they appear. Basically, we need to regain that winning habit. Easier said than done but I am confident that IC will have the boys in the right frame of mind ready for Saturday. Also, let's hope that the team to whom we lost our home record (Kidderminster) can do us a favour on Saturday at home to York.  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Thatís it Les rub it in why donít you  :laughcry:  Weíve had snow today.

Will be back over to The Algarve in Sept ( fingers crossed), hopefully will meet up this time for glass or 3 of Vino  :cheers:
It is vinho in Portugal. Could be more than 3 if we're celebrating promotion? Do you visit the same place in The Algarve when you come here? Just reading another post on the forum - it sounds as if the Gloucester pitch is being inspected and there is a doubt about the match going ahead tonight.

We have a great squad Les, but after witnessing  the Kiddie home defeat the words chickens  n hatch spring to mind.

 Cold, wet miserable night playing in front of a few hundred people.  We need to be well fired up for this one.
I'm sure IC will get them motivated and the fact that York lost on Saturday and that Gloucester played only 48 hours ago should be motivation enough. As you imply though travelling, the inclement weather and the heavy pitch all come into the equation. However, I think we will be good enough for a 2-1 Lynn victory and I'll be listening to it from sunny Portugal :scarf:

Attached file has remaining fixtures for the current top five but Altrincham and Gateshead could still be involved

footballwebpages predicted final table now has Linnets as champions level on points with York but with a better goal difference of +1
Obviously I hope that the end of the season finds us as champions of this league :cup2:. However, whoever compiles 'footballwebpages' I would suggest that they up their game. Since 1st February (and ignoring the actual scores) they have only 8 results correct out of 22! They have tonight's game at Gloucester as a 1-1 draw. Let's hope they've got this one wrong too and it ends up as a Lynn victory :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Alty 2 Telford 0 presently almost half time.
A win for Alty could see them on 47 points and up to 6th

5-2 up after 71 minutes.

Final Table predictions from footballwebpages

Scroll down to bottom of the page for the predicted match scores
Good to see Chester lose again tonight. With reference to the 'Final Table Predictions' - ignoring the actual scorelines - they predicted wins for all 4 home sides. However, Kettering lost at home to Altrincham so it all falls down at the first hurdle :glum:

That should help you out.

Plus a contribution towards the Pitch covers would be welcome if youíre feeling flushed with cash 😂
Brad, apologies for pestering you with this but I used the link you suggested but the downloaded form requires an amount to be inserted. Any idea how I would complete the form and make the payment?

Assume you just fill the PDF application out, and send to
