I would think 600k would be the benchmark for the National League.  Some of the really Ďambitiousí clubs are paying out much more than this.

Going on MH saying 1500 would not cover our wage bill I presume we come far over 600k? :dontknow:

No offence to contributors on this forum as they all have the stability and progress of the club at heart.  However, I donít believe that schemes such as cigarette-style cards of the players, photo-ops, etc., would appeal to the wider area of people that we should now be able to interest and attract.  SC has run this club better than any other Chairman, and in a way that a fan-rum club would never be able to better.  We should now be able to attract people who in the past would never have thought of coming to a game, and that is where our attentions should be aimed.  We therefore need reps for all the villages to round up and enthuse new supporters, and THAT is where our efforts should be made to help finance the club.  We must think bigger.....

We are already a fan run club as the bulk of the money taken to run the club is taken from the fans! We have failed over the last few seasons to attract a major sponsor,who will be our sponsor this season,will we attract an actual sponsor or a sponsor that is owner owned? I brought a football club, but actually I  didn't,the fans did!

Fantastic news.  More season tickets options will, I am sure, will now be taken up.

Main problem with Season Tickets is the "No Refund" policy.  :red card:

Not transferable either, meaning if you can't get to a game, for whatever reason, nobody else can use your ticket.

You mean other teams allow this?  :dontknow:

Griss Iím not sure we ever had three offers on the table.  In fact Iím not convinced we even had a table. :laughcry:

Oh how I long for the infamous table to reappear. :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

To me it seems that listening to the latest podcast it would seem that Mr Cleeve is basing he season on what comes through the gate? Not a single mention on the commercial side of things, doesn't even seem to be a quest for a major team sponsor,thought they would have been knocking the door down? Seems a long way from the days when we had three major offers on the table? Mr Cleeve has often spoken out in the past about fan supported clubs, seems King's Lynn is becoming just that,but with a board of just one? :dontknow:

So i read somewhere that he has said even if he sells 1500 season tickets it still wouldn't be enough to pay the way? That would be nearly £600,000,must be some sort of budget, or s it a case of making the fans pay so they don't have to rely so much on the commercial side? :dontknow:

Obviously by whacking the price up by that amount it shows he has little confidence in his commercial team to bring in income? Last season he increased the price,crowds doubled and still not making enough to run? :bankrupt:

Just wondering,as we are moving up the leagues can we fall into line with many clubs and make the season tickets transferable? So that if I have a season ticket and can't make a game I can allow A.N. Other to use it? :dontknow:

Would it be possible to make it so could join online rather than download a form and post it. A lot more would probably join if it was easier.

Maybe contact one of the committee members through the facebook page?

The membership of the fotl  for a club our size is pathetic we need to attract more members to join the F O T L we need a drive to recruit more members

Soon be time for the AGM won't it, maybe some ideas could be thrown around there, after the members meeting perhaps non members could come in,and chat? Also throw a few more pennies behind the bar? :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

That last exchange between Mallard and Blue and Gold, had me smiling.... was a little like an old club sets it up, the other knocks it off......... don't suppose you have any other positions in mind where Lynn need strengthening Mall.....then B&G can let us know who's coming in to fill them, he he !

Talking about double acts Kes, who's your straight man these days now Stan no longer posts? Didn't he move home and go into rented accommodation?


I heard he had moved into cellar under the stand,plenty of room for his buckets. I swear I heard someone singing the Phantom of the opera when I walked past the other day. :cheers: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I would like to donate on a monthly basis, but not until I know that there will be a full and transparent remit as to where the money is going.  :scarf: :scarf:

I think there may be a few of us in that position SL, that is why I have suggested the War Chest (and any fan contribution fundraising) should be a FotL campaign - the club would still get the cash (as that is the whole MO of the FotL) but it would then be clearly reported, as a minimum, at the Friends AGM and any questions about (any) scheme's operation could be brought up at the AGM and at £5 membership isn't financially prohibitive.

I have mentioned previously thar maybe they put the price of membership up to £10,and become a social club. :dontknow:

Griss, sorry but I don't understand the logic of changing the FotL from it's current format - everyone know what it is there to do and whilst there may be differing opinions about how well it achieves its aims, those aims are reasonably well understood - what would a 'social club' do?  Personally if the FotL moved away from it's stated aims of co-ordinating supporters to help raise revenue funds for the football club then I probably wouldn't renew my membership.

As we are a far bigger team than when the FOTL was brought in to being,and I feel it needs to grow with the club? And a way to do that would be to increase the size of the committee slightly,raise subs to £10 a year,form a sub committee to organise social club events? :dontknow: :scarf:
