I would love to see another quiz, as would many others.  :cheers:

Good news indeed, and thanks to the organiser(s).  We’ll all have ideas for ground improvements, so here’s my two penneth......Better terrace at Tennyson Avenue end, and cover for one of the ends.  Perhaps catering or toilets at corner-ends of Walks terrace.  Then, of course, the turnstiles.  At last we have various opportunities for real progress as a club and a team, and I sincerely hope IC, SC, the groundsman, ( big thank you there), and the admin team, volunteers, and the Trust maintain the interest and ambition that have brought us this far....

Agree with most of that. The plans for development for segregation that have been released, seem to be fairly short-sighted, with the Tennyson End being where the split will be. This seems like it could be an issue if (big if) we go up again, as the home and away entrances will be on the same short edge, and on big games we’ll have crossing queues, which is always a recipe for trouble if tensions are high to begin with.

It would seem to make more sense to develop the hospital end as an away end. With a roof. Keeping home and away entrances separated along the long edges.

(If I’ve misinterpreted current plans I apologise.)

I would think the monies were granted against details plans and costs on what the money would be used for.

Full Club press release is now on EDP website.  Bit more meat on the bone to the story that was released in the Lynn Free paper last week.  Shame that the story got put in print half cocked. The EDP version does explain the full detail of the grant etc.
