That was a "cup gate" 840!!!
You'll find that some will over predict the attendance so they have something to be negative about when the actual attendance is lower.

I estimated around 800, before it was announced, so not far off what was announced.
Very good gate for this stage of the competition. Pre-game, I was predicting 700/750.

Apparently Wigan and Colchester both had Scouts at yesterday's game, looking at Marriott.

Yes B and G , mentioned earlier on another thread.......not sure they will have seen much from that game. Huge jump to Championship. Colchester league 2, but Marriott could be one league below that next year anyway.

Interesting interview and article in today’s Non League paper with Adam Marriott.  Loves it at Lynn under Culverhouse but would like another crack at League Football. 

So how much would he be worth to club needing a goalscorer in the January window ?

Could be at the bottom end of 6 figures and a friendly, if a club the size of Wigan come in for him. Could be enough to make the club break even this year.

Although it'd hamper our season, you wouldn't begrudge him a chance of full-time championship football. With Marriott, Norman and Blake-Tracey all potentially in the football league, it really says something about Culverhouse (Fryatt's) scouting and coaching abilities.

IC was emphasising in interview about the need to protect the front two from overwork. I suspect that is from a number of perspectives. I have a hunch that Hawkins will feature for at least 45 mins in the replay. Would be useful to get him more involved. If Adam should go in January, that is potentially only 5- 8 weeks from now. Even tho' , in the event of him leaving,Lynn might try and bring in a replacement , it would make sense to give Hawkins a good run if possible,to see how he goes.
At this stage, very much ifs and buts and maybes, but no harm in being as prepared as poss.

Last season 277 watched Lynn lose at home to Buxton in the trophy. Saturday's attendance pretty good in comparison.

Good crowd, would have been better had the Hereford brought a few more. All that segregation for 19 supporters. :dontknow: :oldman"

Yes, agreed Stan, tho:
Lynn one league lower and presumably at that stage quite low in that league, whereas currently top.
With respect to Buxton, they are not a Hereford.
Was that match also 3rd qualifying round, because of course Lynn would have entered the competition earlier last year ?

What's undeniable is that crowds are up and by a good way... long may that trend continue.

Too soon to be really worried, but realistically, the question is creeping into the background as to whether the people of King’s Lynn and surrounding area are truly interested in playing at national level, even in reaching the EFL itself, even maintaining our current level.  Considering the incredible season we have had so far, we certainly shouldn’t be relying on travelling supporters to pull our attendance up to a thousand.  We either need to double the crowd or somehow obtain a proper commercial strategy and policy.

York, second in the National League North and a side who average 2,600 at home only had 974 turn up for the Trophy match against Altrincham: that's 38% of their normal gate. If only 38% of Lynn's average attendance had turned up on Saturday then the attendance would have been about 400, so the 850 attendance on Saturday was exceptional when you put things into their proper context and you're not trying to create a deliberately negative spin against the club, knowing that attendance is a sensitive issue for Lynn at the moment.

Fully agree with that Dilly... seems a well balanced post.
Would be such a shame if the team were good enough to go up, but the town couldn't support it. Most ofthe  big teams have it the other way round and are trying to buy their way up with large squads, and lack the individual brilliance that Lynn have  (from the top down) this season. Input from SC, IC, staff and players absolutely outstanding. They need one or two large businesses and more supporters to get behind them now.
