Unofficial Coach to York
« on: September 29, 2019, 11:28:31 AM »
I hear there was a big issue with this yesterday.  Shame things like this can’t be arranged through the Friends.  To save these kind of issues occurring.

Away transport statement
September 29, 2019

The club have been made aware of matters arising from a coach, chartered independently from King’s Lynn Town FC, that yesterday travelled to York City carrying supporters for our National League North fixture.

 

We have it on good authority that when the coach arrived at a motorway service station the organiser of the coach was approached for the balance of money to cover the cost of the coach hire which the person was unable to provide. It was made clear that if the monies were not provided the coach would be returning back to King’s Lynn. It was at this point that a regular supporter, known to the club , paid the balance of the money ( a large amount) so that the coach could continue on its journey, which it did. Clearly this is a very unsatisfactory and disturbing situation.

 

The club wishes to distance itself from the person who chartered this coach and again clarify  the person  is  not officially affiliated in any way to King’s Lynn Town FC. We also wish to advise supporters  wishing to use official coach/ minibus travel  to contact the following people: Mark Mortimer, Matt Hannay or Jamie Heaphey. They are always contactable via all social media platforms and at the ground on home match days. 

 

The next transport arranged is currently for Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday 26th October, any FA Cup ties pending.

 

We will be contacting the person responsible for the coach on Saturday  for an explanation to the circumstances surrounding  this incident  and to also express our wishes that he runs no further coaches to King’s Lynn Town football club fixtures.

 

We offer our apologies  to any supporters who were alarmed or upset by Saturday’s events.
