I agree Mall, seems awfully quiet. Surely the Manager can’t be on holiday B&G…..I thought he had just got back from one. Some really good work on the ticket and marketing side so far, but many surely will wait to see what the squad looks like before committing themselves……..does feel a little like putting the cart before the horse to me.

Retained list posted 24th May….now 8th June. So 15 days without any mention of squad or players coming and going…pretty surprising…..at least to me !

Widdler has just signed young lad from AFC Sudbury….so one of his targets used up !!

In addition to season tickets, some clubs are also offering something like a ten game ticket for £150 which can be used for any ten games during the league season

Not sure we even have the pot these days
Don't be silly, that would mean we are potless.
or there's not a pot to p*ss in

According to many away fans last year when they visited, there is very definitely a pot and it’s made of tin  :laughcry:

Now an announcement for “Boost the Budget” :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Fair enough idea if some have surplus cash, but given the reaction to the Season Tickets, one would think that most won’t have. Again timing of this doesn’t seem great. That’s 3posts on social media today re money in and no mention of players in……


Have read more on this and do feel that some work has been put in to this to make it an attractive proposition for some fans. Although like many I feel we are being short changed on info about the playing side, I also feel that SC is attempting to reach out a bit more to the average fan-that feels positive to me.

Just seen a Widdler interview for the Shots…….he reckons a couple of his targets have agreed terms and will be announced over next few days.

Yes, I have to agree also. I think the Season Tickets are a decent offer when you take everything into consideration…especially the cost of running a competitive club at this level, with Lynn’s geographical location and all the travelling that involves and the enticements needed to get players to come here.

Totally unrealistic  IMO to compare to some of the more northern clubs, for example, whose catchments are much better, don’t travel anywhere near as much and are using a part time model.



Fair enough, but I wonder how many of the clubs you mention pay a peppercorn rent for their ground?

Compare the cost of hiring a pitch at River Lane against the cost of The Walks Stadium lease, and you'll see what a bonus the peppercorn rent is to the Club. All things need to be considered when making the geographical location, catchment area arguement etc.







Hi B &G…..tried looking pitch hire, but couldn’t find other than Lynnsport 3G for 3hours on a match day at £80…so please enlighten me…I have been wondering for some time what the club saves with the current arrangements.


Perhaps, also I should expand on “catchment”…..not just meaning fan base, but also player availability, nearby bigger clubs and the football mentality of the area

One thing that for me is crucial and a fair gripe, is the lack of info coming out………many will kinda need to know who is in the squad and the likely competitiveness of it before they buy a season ticket for example. It’s all about the order of events and the impression that gives, that I think , upsets folk. So we have the season ticket prices and the opportunity to hire out The B&G club on social media….both money in……but still nothing about the squad or friendlies ….both info out to supporters. You would think get all the info out to the fans as an enticement, THEN make the offers to them…..not the other way around.
