Widdrington, Scott, Barrett, Hargreaves,Jones.....all in a side that finished second to Fylde, who then had to make wholesale changes to their squad to stay in the NL. Will be interesting to see how things turn out for the Shots.....

I was encouraged to hear Mr Hill has purchased a season ticket, with a number over 200- hopefully that's from a book just for the coming season. Would be good if the club could tell us how many season tickets have been sold to date. Many of our league rivals are boasting record season ticket sales and new sponsorship deals from local businesses, which must be encouraging for their fans. With Lynn there is always so little info given out, that I regularly end up wondering what is really going on behind the scenes and whether the club will be financially viable going forward.

This is the most important time of the season......for building a squad  ......AND for building fan participation and allegiance and for getting local business on board.


Unfortunately it's the same old same old.............presumably there will be the usual complaints about crowd numbers as the season progresses  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

So two months till the opening day and around two weeks before training starts (he said, trying to whip up some enthusiasm in the absence of much coming out of the club). Still feels like quite a lot of business to be done. :Sherlock: :watching:

Just strange that Sports announce he has left, the local Peterborough paper announces he has gone to Lynn, but the Lynn club don't announce it till after.......

Seems to take a long while between a player giving notice of leaving a club and then finally being announced these days....is it the paperwork, agents ?

Two other possibles, I guess are Alfie Bates, midfielder Brackley (left Brackley a good few days ago now) and as previously mentioned McCammon at Sports.

I wonder if we will renew our interest in Connor Hall and also look at getting the two loanees again from Fleetwood ?

For me, season ticket sales are a true measure of where a club is at. Any club, ultimately is just its fans....owners come and go. This is where the emphasis has to be , in building a club and connecting with the community. For as long as I can remember, Lynn's fan attendance has been erratic.......many only there if the club is doing well or for the big games. Hoping to build the club on the basis of throw money at it, get it promoted and the fans will come to see a successful team is short termism. You need a solid base in terms of fan and commercial support before setting off. I am a little surprised that so far there have been no new initiatives announced to encourage fans in or to get them on board. If SC is to be believed, that the club was in real financial trouble last term, then he must realise that Joe's input will only last so long too.

It really is high time that someone sat back, looked at revenues and came up with an inventive incentive to get people on board IMO. If this club was selling 500 season tickets a year, with all the spin offs from fan involvement that that could create and was able to have a boost the budget scheme which brought in £50k from fans, and had good commercial sponsorship, then with money that owners had to throw in too, the club might be in with a chance of competing at the next level.
Without that, I personally don't think there's much chance of progression.

2 full backs, 2 central defenders, 3 midfielders and 2 attackers still required if seriously chasing top 6.

I'm hearing Jordan Thewlis currently at Alfreton is on the wish list. 17 goals in the league last season albeit 6 penalties. Old Boston player I recall. Along with defender Adam Lund also Alfreton.
Andrew Boyce currently Scunthorpe United. Pretty sure he's been with us before?

Thewlis has signed for Guiseley

Listening to Ian Culverhouse after promotion, saying that he made 16 signings from the end of the previous season to now. Lynn are in a similar position to where Boston were a year ago....puts into perspective the amount of work to be done.

Would have thought it very likely that Hargreaves will join Widdler.....both at Bristol Rovers before.

Some names as possibles...Mols and Spenser at Curzon, and the one that got away earlier who is with Solihull and ended up at Brackley on loan whose name I can't recall.


I expect to see some signings early....take Crowe and Margetts out of our current retained list and it's pretty well the lot that struggled in the bottom 4 for most of the season.

All absolute madness...throw in VAR too......anything to hype the game up to a frenzy while the fundamentals of the game get ever more diluted in terms of stature and meaning.

The teams most deserving of promotion and best equipped to stay in the higher league are those that finish in the top spots after 42/46 games. (depending on the league format). That is especially true of the NL set up. How a team that just makes the playoffs and finishes well behind the top two in the NLN or NLS is supposed to be able to cope in the NL, heaven knows.

Certainly one to forget this one.   In the end it was job done.  AL has an important couple of months ahead in terms of recruitment.   

Which of the Lynn owned players would you keep for next season ?

Jones
McFadden
Hargreaves
Walker ( a given)
Margetts
Crowe
Stephens
Hughes

Jones as back up to Dixon-Hodge, Hargreaves, Margetts and Crowe.

If the budget allows Stephens as Hughes as squad players.

Need someone like Barrows (right back who can also play centre half) plus two new centre halves, 2 new midfielders and a couple of forwards as a minimum, I would think.

All need to be hard working fit individuals with experience at this level. If they have a bit of flair, that's a bonus. Times have moved on........Bowles, Marsh, Currie etc, although fun in the day wouldn't get in a starting eleven these days unless their fitness and work rate improved dramatically .
Any player who has the required fitness level for NL and great flair to go with it , will be in the EFl.......we have to be realistic in terms of the football we expect, I feel.......the only exception would be the inducement of a huge budget and wages to attract EFL players in (Wrexham for example).

I smell a banana skin.......Aldershot probably thought they were odds on.....6-1 I believe.
