General Discussion / Re: Stewarding at game v S.Moors
« on: May 28, 2021, 11:09:16 AM »
There appears to be Stewards and Security.

Stewards are Volunteers who man the Gates, checking Tickets, marshalling fans and reminding fans of any restrictions and rules and attempting to enforce said restrictions/rules.

Security are Paid personnel who arrived late on Tuesday Evening, resulting in the Stewards at the Gates not being able to open up on time (1845), wave "Magic Wands" over fans and stand looking important. They are also there to protect players, officials etc. and keep the peace between Home and Away fans (when Away fans are permitted).

The fact that many fans cannot understand simple instructions or purposely infringe those restrictions (standing too close, not wearing masks etc.) is a concern. However, if anyone has a problem with these COVIDIOTS then move away and explain to Stewards/Security why, if they ask.

IMHO I believe you cannot do harm to a willing person (idiot) who catches COVID from someone (another idiot) they were standing too close to who was not adhering to official restrictions.  If this applies to you, the reader, I make no apology.

Great News. Thank you, whoever you are.

On Mallardís Cup Final point, I shared his enjoyment, apart from the Neanderthals who booed the taking of the knee, and the commentator trying to talk louder to hide it.

Great day for both teams coming out to cheering fans.

Then, to paraphrase Frank Sinatra, "And then they went and spoilt it all, by doing something stupid, like taking the knee".

As a Season Ticket Holder I shall be there for both games. Nothing like live football vs Stream.

I do realise that we are playing for nothing but physical support is needed at this time to give the players and management to give meaning to their endeavours this Season.

Attelborough Doug is spot on it has got a covernant on the ground and should
only used for football or sport. As for the car park being laid at Hospital End that would
be up to the club not the Council.

I wonder if Stephen Cleeve still has that "illegal" Parking Meter  :dontknow: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I wonder how much the council value the land The Walks is on? Prime real estate where houses could be worth a small fortune. Park views, walking distance of train station that's straight into London. Developers dream.

Ideal for me if money was there to do a good stadium with council backing after selling the stadium land, locate it Greenyard Way, where the road infrastructure is already there. If logistically possible, have the main stand moved over from existing ground, have two terraced ends, and a brand new main stand that has top hospitality facilities. Giving size of land, can even build a few houses on there to recoup some of the money for the council (or go commercial to bring in jobs/investment to Lynn). There's also already a foot bridge going over the trainline so you can walk to the ground from Gaywood area (plus in future big games, links with the schools can see parking used at their places with a small fee going to them so the car network is distributed more away from the actual ground).

Logistically ideal, just unsure if council have that area/land earmarked for housing development. Fylde I always see as the template for new stadiums in the top level of non league if you want to go the full works.

An idea that has been around for a number of years, in one form or another.

A great chance to build something for the club and the local community. Sooner or later something serious is going to have to happen with the Walks, irrespective of the level the club plays at.

As long as a new stadium doesn't have a bloody running track between the supporters and pitch.

With regards to cost, could it even be self funding? Selling an attractive piece of real estate and using the money to buy and develope agricultural land sounds good.

Saddlebow as a location?

Stick it on the Speedway Arena land  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:
