Club statement:


A King's Lynn Town statement said they were informed of the tests this evening.

It continued: "We will now be awarded the tie and the prize money of £9,375 ahead of the first round draw on Monday.

As Bluboy says on a separate post, mixed emotions. Thoughts go out to the Notts County players and their fans. Not how we'd want to progress to the competition proper. We were removed from the 4th qualifying round 25 years ago without playing a game so maybe we were due a bit of luck!?!

A couple of posts from the Notts County forum. Appears to make sense to me.

Almost feels like we are being punished for doing the right thing and undertaking regular testing at our own expense when our players may have caught the virus from other clubs' players who didn't bother or couldn't afford to do the testing

You would hope that part of the deal for the funding all National Leagues are receiving would be on the condition that the clubs arrange Covid testing for all the squad & staff.

Surely all Clubs in the 5th tier of English Football have to tested before each game.   It makes no sense if some clubs are doing the right things and some arenít. 

Iím sure we are professional enough to have regular testing at the Club.

Notts County feel they have kept a tight ship with regular testing and adhering to strict guidelines but..one of their recent NL opponents had a player who tested positive some time after the match.
The County player he was marking subsequently tested positive for Covid and was the first such result at County.....now of course there are a number of others.

That must prove the importance of testing, and track and trace.

Reading around the forums there appears to be more and more people beginning to think this season won't run its full term.

If some clubs are doing all they can to play it straight while others donít give a toss, then you have to think the season will grind to a halt at this level.

What happens a Non League club with no testing arrangements in place meets a League club who are following their own guidelines.   Will the League club be prepared to play these games ?

While people, be it Club officials or supporters, continue to think the rules don't apply to them, the longer it will be before supporters are allowed back in to watch games.

The longer it is before the supporters are allowed in to watch games, the bigger the risk to the financial well being of their Clubs.

The more the rules are broken, the bigger the chance of a total lockdown.

Clubs no longer need to risk it all so they can earn a few quid, supporters involved should stop being so selfish.

Interesting article from Gillingham v Fleetwood game at the weekend re- testing.

Also the same in todayís NLP with regard to Notts County.   The feeling is if things continue as they are with teams not taking testing seriously then the season will grind to a halt.

Would be interesting b&g to see if Lynn drew say an Ipswich Town or a Peterboro at the walks in the cup....if the temptation of a few "guests" would be too much....although I would imagine they would be under strict instructions to stay behind the cameras... :dontknow:

Football league clubs donít have to do testing, why Spurs paid for Orient to be tested before they played other month. Thereíll be quite a few clubs like S****horpe today where cases will rip through the club once one gets tested after showing symptoms.

Amazed Notts County doing testing. Completely pointless when other teams wonít be.

Being a good example is hardly pointless.

The question is, should the other non league Clubs follow their lead, especially now they have the Grant money and are supposedly the centre of local communities.

Should have been made a condition of receiving grant. Along with a transfer embargo, whilst receiving said grant.
