FA YOUTH CUP
« on: September 29, 2020, 08:24:12 PM »
I see that on the home page that the Youth team are at home next tuesday to Cambridge City. Spectators are allowed and adults will be £7 children free.
Best i get my old KES short trousers out see if i can get in for free!
I wonder if the teams have agreed this seemingly rather high amount especially if the Lynn team is made up of players helping out Downham Town Reserves in the Anglian Comb where i would imagine the entrance for league games is ZERO.

Weren't these games £4 last season?
Higher costs involved, I imagine...

perhaps their arms were not twisted far enough up their backs to sign on, with the threat of never playing for King's Lynn if they didn't.
Surely they should be dual registered if they are also helping out Downham reserves.
£7 concession, no thanks. There will be football league grounds AGAIN cheaper than that.
God help us if we get through and draw Manchester Utd youth. We will have to win the lottery to pay to see it.

Wasn't aware of that.
Downham have lost several of the previous committee including the lady chairperson, several players who have left and gone to Gayton etc and all does not sound rosey over there at the moment.
I actually went to the Swaffham V Fakenham FA Vase game as a neutral as they are both good customers of mine. game ended 2-2 and Fakenham then won on penalties. Very entertaining afternoon and certainly personel from both clubs made me very welcome.

I wonder if because it's "only" a youth game the electricity suppliers let the club have power for the floodlights etc for free ?

Maybe free admission but charge 15 notes for a programme.  Sure fire commercial success that idea.  Apparently

Stephen Cleeve, Chairman of King’s Lynn Town Football Club said “.........................................Tickets to the screenings can be purchased from King’s Lynn Town Football Club and the whole ticket prices comes to the club, which will really help with our current costs".

From  the perspective of that point of view, I take it that Alive Leisure (basically the Tax Payer's money) must get Electricity and staff cost's for free too.   :dontknow:
