General Discussion / Re: Season tickets, early bird discounts!

I suspect there isn’t a great deal of room for manoeuvre on the finances. Overall I think the reduction for many has to be seen as a big positive.

A decent number will benefit from the £299 concessionary rate for a seat.

Let’s hope season ticket sales are up as a result.

Pink, with SC. Do irons in fires mean the same as offers on tables ?   If so, be afraid, be very afraid

I am Mall…I am :laughcry:

Well, you know, Widdler really should be involved in the game at a much higher level than he currently is because his standards, knowledge and expectations are so much better….never mind ethics or doing the right thing. They seemed to have teamed up with a suitable chairman too, so good luck to them all….they might need it going forward….

Aha some news….thanks Fenlander. Can’t say I am surprised….if he’s deemed good enough for the squad, then he does need to be given game time….didn’t have much last season……same could apply to Tai Fleming. It’s a real shame as good young local talent could be a real plus this coming season, especially if Crowther and Coulson et al leave.

I saw this posted by SC last weekend……..so was thinking “next”week related to the week we are currently enjoying. He also said that there are may irons in many fires and it’s the squad we have in August that matters…not the squad we have now. ……I would argue that on the evidence of last season, it’s not the squad we have by August, but the fit squad and additions we have by early December that will count. Pointless having one of the best squads  in August if you haven’t the best squad by Christmas.

Is perhaps the social media guy on holiday ? Or was there just nothing to comment on at the club since May 25th ?


Seems to me that none of those offered a new contract have accepted straight away otherwise we would have heard something………or would we  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:


Oh well, I ‘ll just forget about the club for a few weeks and maybe show some interest then…….maybe

Shame that what started out as such a positive thread  doesn’t end that way and descends into finger pointing and apportioning blame.


Changes are required in the club’s outlook and way of going about things………and IMO changes required in the approach of some fans too ,in order  for the club to move forwards and be successful. Being constantly tapped into a negative vibe isn’t useful or healthy….what’s gone is gone……..


Should be an interesting fortnight coming up. Most teams resume training early July and some players/managers usually take their holidays just before that, so lots to be resolved over the next 14 days or so. Let’s hope for some positive outcomes.

Just as well we didn’t get promotion! Just wouldn’t be able to compete and would be back down again sharpish.

Insufficient budget available for NL and probably only 4/5 of squad genuinely good enough for NL.


Personally, very comfortable with a reset, so long as work begins behind the suspense to grow the club.

I’m liking what Pink has to say in his post.  A lot of sense being talked there. Reminds very much of someone who use to post on here.  If that is the case then welcome back.

I’d love to see SC cut the bullcrap and just tell it like it is.   Would like to see a full
X point plan put in place to drive the club forward over say the next 3/4/5 years.

1.  Other partners brought onboard in support of the owner.

2.  A fully integrated commercial department formed and properly headed up by someone who actually knows what they are doing.  Very like the guy we had but who left through Ill health.  Someone who is allowed to get on with the job without any interference.

3.  A big Olive branch handed out to the Trust and for SC to ask them to get involved in supporting the club.

4.  A fully functional Supporters Club again there to raise funds and support the Club. ( has the issue with old SC funds finally been sorted?)

5.  A club that works in harmony with the its fans getting a big message out there loud and clear.  One where the fans feel totally included and are proud to follow their local club.

Anyone else want to add to this wish list?



That reads very much as the type of thing most of us would really hope to see from a major reset………….I suspect point one might be the catalyst for the rest to happen and a statement of aims to be produced.

Really good post that, as I am sure this Forum is reviewed on a fairly regular basis by club connections.


(Just as an aside, cover blown after less than 40 posts  :laughcry:….)

I’m starting to fear for us next season. Just missing out this year provides no guarantees for 2023-2024. Already key players have departed and I’m guessing more will go. Will we get quality replacements?  I have my doubts currently. MH is, I suspect, on a learning curve. That’s fair enough and understandable but does he have the right sort of contacts to pull in players we need?  My worry is that we will not be fighting for a play-off place next season but actually will be trying to avoid relegation. I sincerely hope I’m wrong…but things, to me, seem to more in that direction. I’m usually optimistic but nothing, to date, gives me hope. Someone tell me I’m wrong!!



I think Scunthorpe coming down  and Aldershot possibly picking off a few, could be doing us a big favour, in effect meaning we have to reset and recruit a new squad. It emphasises where we need to be financially, to even consider going up. We are a fair way off what is required, so a few seasons mid table or just creeping into the play off picture, might be just what is needed, whilst time is used to build other revenue streams up. The difficulty may be getting the fan base to buy into it….given many seem to be big match Harry’s.

So Denton last week, Clunan this week.  I wonder who Jimmy will be snaffling away next week ? 

With Clunan  living in Lynn will he be travelling up to Scunny on a daily basis, or stopping over in digs ?  Whichever way a hellva a commitment with a new baby on the way

Maybe there is someone else who will be travelling the same way that he can share the driving with (?)

Would have thought Scunthorpe might be a model to try to follow, given they are so much bigger than Lynn. Sure they have past EFL history, but it’s not that big a town and it’s not located that favourably…..certain similarities there…..so where do they generate their bucks from….(apart from their 3k attendances).

Attendance of 3k would be enough to compete. I think the Chairman would be content with that.


Yes but as we both know that won’t happen anytime soon…..so where do they get the rest of their dosh from

Sadly this is what can happen when you have a side that’s full of good quality players and you don’t get your promotion and you can’t compete financially with bigger fish. Just got to get the commercial and supporters side sorted in order to be able to compete on more level terms, with the bigger sides in NLN and the NL.
