General Discussion / Mills in, Bridges out
« on: May 27, 2016, 09:31:59 AM »
Gary Mills (the other one) returns to the club on the coaching staff.

Leaving the club is David Bridges after calling time on his playing career.
Bridgo has given everything for the team over the last two seasons, and a shame to see him go.

Welcome back Gary. Thank you and best wishes for the future David.

From kltown site:

Now his retirement has been announced, thank you to Maurice for all your hard work and dedication for the club and the pitch. Many times you've got games on against the odds and I hope you enjoy your retirement.

General Discussion / Liam Hurst departs?
« on: May 07, 2016, 12:30:27 PM »
Think it's safe to say from Liam's Twitter feed he will not be a King's Lynn player next season.

"Thanks for having me @officialKLtown it has been a pleasure, all the best for the future 👍"

All the best Liam.

General Discussion / Lowestoft relegated
« on: April 30, 2016, 05:01:24 PM »
Looks like Brackley's 1-0 win over Tamworth has kept them up as Lowestoft could only draw at home to Gloucester. Wonder if that is likely to keep us in the Southern Premier?

Tamworth have announced he will be leaving the club at the end of the current season.

Scored 3 goals in 5 games for us in a loan spell January/February 2015.

General Discussion / Cambridge City away
« on: April 20, 2016, 10:38:08 AM »
Our final away game of the season takes us to St. Ives for a second attempt to play Cambridge City tonight.

Can't help feeling the 'derby feel' of this fixture is somewhat muted through a combination of the game being a dead rubber and City playing in exile from Cambridge at the moment.

Hopefully we can turn out in numbers for the final two games of the season and show our players a last deserved round of support. Two wins from our final two games will ensure our best finish at Step 3 since we returned (11th with 68 points in 2013/14).

I'm going to miss it all after 5pm on Saturday.

I do feel like I'm saying it every week but yet another game where the outcome could have been very different if we had taken our chances while we were on top.

We started slowly with Slough missing two very good chances in the opening minutes, before we had a couple of good chances of our own, firstly Sands hitting the post after one of his trademark turns in the box, then Hurst having a strike from the edge of the area headed off the line.

Slough's number 9 was a constant threat all afternoon and they had lots of pace going forward. He slid in their first goal from a tight angle 30 minutes in. We had chances to level for the rest of the first half when Sands latched on to through balls twice but managed to fire both chances just over.

Second half was very much end to end with both teams piling forward then trying to hit the other on the break. Clunan was eventually withdrawn limping as he was kicked all over the place in a bid to nullify the amount of time he spent on the ball. A story of more chances created and missed before Slough eventually settled it in the last minute with a second goal from their number 9.

Yes the game had that end of season feel about it, but the only real difference between the two sides was a player that could put chances away. Slough's goalkeeper got man of the match although one of their central defenders or their number 9 caused us problems all afternoon and were just as worthy.

General Discussion / Predictions for Weymouth?
« on: April 08, 2016, 09:24:56 AM »
The next two games could give us a massive say on the play off positions, as Weymouth and then Hungerford come to town. Both will be desperate not to drop points with an in-form Kettering side pushing closer to the play off places.

Weymouth are on a decent run at the moment, conceding just 4 goals in their last ten games. I think we will get a creditable 1-1 draw from this game.

General Discussion / Biggleswade 2 Lynn 4
« on: April 02, 2016, 06:00:27 PM »
Very exciting game today as the scoreline might suggest.

We didn't get going in the first ten minutes and soon found ourselves a goal down from a corner.

Clunan levelled matters a few minutes later slamming the ball in off the right hand post from the spot. The referee called a rather soft handball on the right back under pressure from Friend.

In the following minutes Sands showed his deadly nature in the box with a volley and a header to put us 3-1 up. Special mention to Jack Friend who had a hand in all three goals causing them all manner of problems down the left hand side and linking up well with Jordan Yong. Clunan also showed what we have been missing in the last couple of games.

Second half Biggleswade were a lot more threatening going forward, but we managed to draw first blood when Hilliard fired in at the back post for 4-1. On the hour mark Biggleswade pulled a goal back with a ball over the top and a simple finish for their striker. Chances were created and missed at both ends in the final minutes.

Decent performance by Lynn, again second half performance lacked the intensity of the first but this time we had built up the lead our performance warranted by half time. Matt Castellan came off injured at half time and Sam Gaughran was limping for the final minutes after we had used three subs.

General Discussion / Hitchin (h)
« on: March 23, 2016, 09:40:07 AM »
Not the most exciting game I've seen this season, but nevertheless produced a result that I doubt many were expecting.

Lots of tests for us, Hitchin moved the ball around very well in the first half, and we also had to cope with two enforced changes. Could be extremely light in midfield on Saturday now with Clunan's ban starting too.
Hitchin's number 4 I thought was an excellent player, loads of energy and seemed to cover every blade of grass on the pitch.

Fantastic finish by Sands for the goal. His composure to turn and shoot showed his instinct for goal and what we have been missing this year - taking chances!

Officials were dire - an inconsistent referee that pulled up petty challenges but let some worse ones go. Got in the way a few times but didn't notice a single handball of which there were a few particularly in the second half. He also let too much dissent go which made things worse for him later on. Both their full backs spent most of the first half berating the ref and the lino, the number 8 was also spoken to more than once. How many times can you warn someone?

General Discussion / John Sands signs
« on: March 15, 2016, 07:05:11 PM »
Taken from the official site

King's Lynn Town have tonight announced the signing of frontman John Sands from Boston United on a season long loan deal. 29 year old Sands has made 13 appearances finding the net on 2 occasions for this season since joining the Pilgrims from Ryman Premier Divsion side Leiston back in November last year. Manager Gary Setchell spoke about the signing tonight before training, "John is somebody that I have I tried to sign the last 3 or 4 seasons but I've failed every time, I believe John can score goals for the football club and help us get back on the playoff trail, He's fit and ready to go at Frome on Saturday he's not come here to use his time to get fit like other strikers that I've signed in the past which will please the supporters"

General Discussion / Leamington (a)
« on: February 26, 2016, 11:51:37 AM »
Even though we're only at the end of February, this is a huge game for both sides. Leamington currently trail us by three points, with three games in hand. They sat top of the league in October when they came to The Walks and committed what could only be described as a smash and grab raid to nick a 1-0 win in a game where we did everything but score.

I'd consider our team to have grown into this division considerably since then, but they're also coming off the back of a sticky patch themselves with some good recent results, particularly away from home.

Who's going?
