Thanks again to Bevan Asher (nicked from Facebook) -

General Discussion / King's Lynn v Blyth Spartans on Saturday 7th December
« on: December 04, 2019, 09:39:51 AM »
Lynn are flying high but must swoop low down against Blyth who are flapping away just above the bottom of the table.

We all know that such matches often have a twist in the tail as feathers fly and how the mighty can fall and be brought to the ground.

Looking forward to a battle royal and Lynn improving their Goal Difference with a win and a clean sheet. 3 - 0 and 1000+.

General Discussion / Fans Ban-Final Warnings
« on: November 15, 2019, 10:25:26 AM »
Club statement
November 15, 2019

Following a meeting between the King’s Lynn Town football club safety advisory group and representatives of  the local authorities, including Norfolk Police, a person has been given a banning order from attending all fixtures at The Walks stadium for the remainder of the 2019/ 20 season. This is in relation to an incident that took place during the fixture with Chester, played at The Walks  on Saturday October 12th 2019 and another  incident prior to this date. A second person has also been issued with a ‘ final warning  ‘ letter in relation to events that took place , again during the match with Chester. 

During the fixture at Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday November 9th 2019 two King’s Lynn Town supporters were ejected from Bradford’s stadium for incidents that occurred during the first half of the game. These two individuals have been identified by the club and are also (in the process) of receiving ‘ final warning ‘ letters in relation to their actions.  All three persons issued with ‘ final warning’ letters have been told that further repetition of their actions will also result in banning orders from attending all fixtures at The Walks.

The actions of the persons above has seen the club being fined by the Football Association and warned of their future conduct. Indeed an investigation regarding last weekend’s incidents  are still ongoing. It is with all of these factors taken into account  that the club are now adopting a ‘ zero tolerance ‘ stand on such misbehaviour and actions. The club also wishes that all supporters read and are aware of a ‘ safe guarding statement ‘ that appears in every home match programme covering supporter behaviour whilst in the ground.

As a club we value and appreciate your support of the club and team greatly. However we do ask that your support is given correctly and not in a way that could cause offence to others. We will be monitoring  behaviour even more closely from now on, beginning at Southport  on Saturday  ,  to ensure this happens. Further incidents and allegations this season could see serious consequences  for the club in the future.

 The club will be making no further comment on this statement.

General Discussion / Kidderminster Harriers Away.
« on: October 21, 2019, 02:26:40 PM »
What will this week bring in the shape of "Good News"  :dontknow:

Saturday bring us a trip Away to Kidderminster who languish near the foot of the Table with only 1 x home Win (better Away with 3 Wins). Better than Kettering who are Bottom o' 't League  :glum: :glum:  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Here's hoping for a Jarvis return at least.  :scarf: :scarf: :comeon: :comeon: :comeon: :scarf: :scarf:

Predictions: 3-1 Win for Lynn and a mediocre attendance of 503

General Discussion / Tactics On The Pitch
« on: October 10, 2019, 09:18:01 AM »
Each game needs preparation to meet the perceived threat and tactics of the other team. How the Manager sets up formations, attacking strategy and defending policies will be determined by their information on the way the other team tends to perform.

Ian Culverhouse will have watched video, sent watchers and spoken to many others to glean what he can about each team. Half time talk and "hair dryer" moments will be based on how both teams are performing in the first half.

Fans watching the game will have many differing thoughts of what should be happening and changes to formations, players, positions and tactics.

Are there any tactics that Lynn should be (in our humble opinions) using  :dontknow:

I will start you off with my old chestnut - a player wide on the far side from the attack, waiting for the overhit/long ball/ball squirting out. There always seems to be lost chances for that 2nd ball into the box.

General Discussion / FA Cup Replay v Alfreton Tuesday Evening
« on: September 22, 2019, 04:25:57 PM »
I am going all out and expect a 4-0 win with Attendance of 945.

Start with an All Out Attack and then sub a few for York on Saturday.

General Discussion / Rory McAuley's RED Card
« on: September 05, 2019, 03:15:14 PM »
A lot of speculation going on about the "rights" and "wrongs" of Rory's straight Red Card against Alfreton on Tuesday evening.

From my position in the Stands looking at the incident from behind I initially thought they were closer together and Rory had caught him with his elbow. The video clearly shows there was space between them and Rory was much further in front. As such there was no physical threat and Rory was getting away from No10. Why would Rory flail an arm back to intentionally hit him - purely accidental.

The BIG Question  :dontknow: Are King's Lynn lodging/have lodged an Appeal  :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:

90 minutes to Kick Off and this is the first mention of the Game  :dontknow:

Come On You Linnets  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :comeon: :comeon: :comeon: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

My prediction is a 2 -0 Win for Lynn and a Bumper Crowd of 800+ (They don't usually have large attendances.)

General Discussion / Large Crowds and Queues
« on: August 08, 2019, 12:03:26 PM »
Lots of comments about Queues stretching out to Tennyson Road and along the Fence Line. Seems to be a blockage at the Box Office.

The problem is at the Ticket Box Office. A speedier way of paying and issuing tickets is needed. I remember on one occasion they had printed off several hundred tickets so less of a wait for printer to print off ticket when there was a queue.

Also they could filter the queue into 3 lanes rather than one lane that then splits at the Box Office - Lane 1 Correct Money, Lane 2 Need Change, Lane 3 More Than One Ticket (1 person queues).

Also Filter arrival at Entrance to 1, On the Right Access to Season and Online Tickets Only (Keep the Person with Scanner There) 2, On the Left Ticket Holders who have been to the Box Office and have bought a Physical Ticket.

General Discussion / No Smoking - New Policy at The Walks.
« on: August 03, 2019, 02:57:21 PM »
From the "Other Site" news of a slight change to the Smoking Policy:

King's Lynn Town announce new smoking policy
August 1, 2019

The Linnets have announced a new smoking policy that will come into place at The Walks on Tuesday, August 6, the evening of the opening home fixture with Kettering Town in the Vanarama National League North.
The main stand seated area has been a non-smoking part of the stadium for a number of seasons.
As from Tuesday that area will be extended to cover all of the terrace below the seats, the area at either end of the main stand including the entrances to the Blue & Gold Sports Bar and the cafe and turnstiles and all of the covered area of terrace on the opposite side of the stadium.
The open terrace at both the Tennyson Road and Hospital End will be areas where smokers can still enjoy a cigarette.
Club media officer Mark Hearle said: "It’s something that has been discussed for a while now and it’s been decided to bring it in for the start of the new season.
"We will be erecting signs to remind people and be making various announcements to the crowd via the PA.
"Our stewards will be briefed and instructed to implement the new ruling in a firm but friendly and sensible way."

Now I will be able to watch all of the action without the Smoke Screen rising from in front and below. Hurrah.  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

General Discussion / The Friendlies are Over - Now the Season Begins
« on: July 31, 2019, 09:02:13 AM »
Last night saw the last of the Friendlies with a 3-3 Draw against a useful Charlton Under 23's.

Lynn went 2 - 0 down in 4minutes with a penalty and being cut wide open by some very fast passes and a non-existent defence.

The Team took some time to settle down and then started to pass the ball around and gain some composure. I feel that Charlton sat back to soak up some pressure to give their defence and midfield something to do. It was good for us as well to be able to work some good moves together. Crosses and free kicks got the ball into the area but nothing until Clunan fouled and Kelly slotted home a penalty. Hawkins then smashed home a cross from our young 17year old No2 (??) who had a good game.

 2 - 2 at halftime.

Mass changes for the 2nd half with Marriott, Henderson, Jarvis, McAuley, Jones and others coming on. We used both wide players to good effect and our No4 made some good attack link ups with Hendo and McAuley (who was giving instructions, encouragement and praise - lovely to see and hear! - to No4 (???).

It went a bit flat for periods as the "new" team settled in but Lynn continued to build attacks and the defence line was better maintained by Rory McAuley et al.

Charleton were organised and slick but we tackled well. A great cross from the left was met by Aaron Jones bullet of a header and Lynn were 3 - 1 up.

The gears were moved up by Charleton and attacks came thick and fast. Michael Gash missed a sitter going just wide of post. A couple of "Handbags" occurred but overall Ref handled the game well. Finally Charlie Congreve (Pedro subbed about 20mins into 2nd half) was beaten by a tight angle bullet shot from 10yards on the left.

Final Score 3 - 3 - A fair result and a good work out for both teams.

General Discussion / Dream Team for 2019/20

Midfield from Clunan, Jarvis, Jones (again), Henderson, Kelly, Richards, Hawkins.

Clunan, Henderson, Kelly
Gash, Marriott

Subs: Hawkins, Barrows, Richards, Carey, Jarvis
