He for me would be the perfect replacement for "Big Jack" never anyone close since he left.  :scarf:

Thinking about it, if Holt was the surprise Cleeve would have announced it to put a few more on the gate. It is probably the unveiling of the mascot. I hope it lasts longer than the last one.

Went off injured last Saturday so I guess still not fit.

Surprise! Surprise! Not Grant Holt but Michael Gash. Not greeted with a big fanfare today but almost a whimper just before kick off. Hope he does well for us and is fit and raring to go.
Nice to see the children having a game on a mini pitch before kick-off. Hope this is a regular event.
Some impressive performances today. Sam Gaughan, Frazer Blake-Tracy, Craig Parker stood out for me. Good to see Leon Mettam scoring twice today., but overall our finishing was woeful at times.Michael Clunan also played well. Opposition were full of honest endeavour but Alex Street not really tested.
Lowestoft will be more of an indicator of the standard we are at and this should be followed by a home win against Gosport Borough in front of a crowd of around 1000!

Today saw an improved Lynn side cope well with a Gorleston team who tried but failed to pose too much of a threat.

First half started well and Lynn well in control. Michael Clunan ran things well in midfield. Leon Mettam worked well but complained when high balls pumped forward - he indicated that he wanted to receive passes at chest height.

Lynn appeared to be playing without wingers apart from attacking wing-backs in Fryatt and Blake-Tracy. Sam G was solid in defence with Ward alongside.

The second half was a bit flat as Gorleston improved in defence and midfield without being any real threat up front.

When Sam Warburton arrived there was more wing presence on the left and Shipp provided more attack on the right. Mettam worked harder than last season and his two goals were well deserved - the last being a solo effort working for space and popping in a delightful shot into the net.

All in all a good performance by a team that is being encouraged to play football on the ground, pass quickly in tight formation and re-group when necessary.

I would like to see Matty Castellan, Ward, Gaughran and Blake-Tracy in defence with Ryan Fryatt taking on a Dan Quigley type role in midfield. Is the narrower pitch designed to fit a game with less wing attacking apart from the wing-backs? Tighter control of midfield when dedicated wingers are not deployed? Shades of three strikers?

Looking forward to our first game of the season on 12th August.

A good signing but a bit of a gamble. Would Tom Siddons also be a good signing as back-up to be the big man up front with Leon Mettam?

Says on the Leyton forum he looked a good hold-up player. Could be just what we are looking for.
