absolutely spot on Robbo 84 -  a legends list of only what will be 3 doesn't look that appealing so add the others as well

Personally I can't see where the problem is with there only being 3 to start with initially, and to let it grow as the seasons go by. The Club have said two per season and I think that's fine.
If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

Can't tell you how pleased I am to see a bit of a debate on the hall of fame, this is one of the reasons we decided to do it, to get the supporters talking of players from the past and present. A couple of the supporters are also asking why a couple of certain players are not in the poll, I set a couple of months for the supporters to put forward their nominations so if you wanted to put a player forward you should have when the intial votes was taken place, this does not mean that more players can be added next season when we will have another three introduced.
Thanks to everyone who has voted already we have had loads of interest from near and far and just goes to show what fan base we have.
Also I have been in touch with the Blue and Gold Trust about getting some statistics for all the players, so please keep a look out in the next couple of weeks, I was originally going to do this for all the players but been poorly the last three weeks
Cheers

Also Re Chris Watts
I have had a couple of emails asking for a late inclusion of Chris Watts and looking at his achievements for Kings Lynn I have added him into the poll

Mick Wright also scored in that famous FA Cup win at Coventry in 1961.

Just wondering are there any stats available from Gary Setchell's first spell as a player?

Shane Tolley, maybe not a legend, but who can forget his goal?   :scarf:

From Pen Pictures:
Setchell started with Lynn's Youth team in 1991 and went on to play for Wisbech Town and Fakenham, where he was the league's leading goalscorer in the 1998-99 season with 36 goals. He went on to join Kettering Town in 1999. The following season he joined Rushden & Diamonds and made 77 appearances, scoring three goals, his final appearance being in March 2003.
He moved on to Tamworth but domestic circumstances saw him move back to Lynn, making his debut for the senior side at the start of 2004.
He made 15 appearances that season, scoring twice. He made a further 36 appearances, scoring twice, in the following season before being released in June 2005.
He went on to play for AFC Sudbury and then spent two seasons at Swaffham before moving onto Wisbech where he became manager in November 2008.

This is why the term 'legend' can mean a great many things to so many people. Shane will be remembered with a fondness by all that were there that evening. I even managed to get a photo with him and the trophy in the bar after the game. Four days later I travelled to Belper for the final game of the season and saw him hit a hat trick in the opening half hour of the game.

Similarly I will never forget how instumental Dave Staff was in that 2004 promotion season from the Eastern League. Every time Lynn got a free kick 20-30 yards from goal you fancied him to score. He even scored directly from a corner at the Tennyson Road end in a game that season.

Agree with you robbo  legend  means different things to different people and from different era's   I also remember the hatrick at belper  one with his right  one with his left and a header from the edge of the area and there manager getting sent off and having to walk  across the pitch  to the tunnel in shame  o Happy days

Memory is a little hazy but I'm sure it's the fastest hat trick I've seen by a Lynn player.

Hi.  I am a bit confused.  I originally nominated two players, one of them being Mick Wright.  My confusion is twofold.  Have I cast my vote and not able to vote again, or as Mick is now IN, can I vote for someone else. Please reply Backie.  Regards - Badger.  :oldman"
