Reserves
« on: May 19, 2021, 12:01:18 PM »
I see King's Lynn Town Reserves are listed as being in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One North for next season.
I thought I heard somewhere we were going to have an Under 23 team that played in the Norfolk Senior Cup and friendlies against the Academy teams of league clubs and not in the Thurlow Nunn.

I seem to recall SC saying this when he use to do Podcasts.   Maybe it’s a change of direction and now they will be staying at Step 6, or maybe a decision to withdraw will come in the summer ?

I'd have thought the players would want to know which direction the Club is going on this, before committing themselves for next season.   :dontknow:

It might be the players know, it's just that the league doesn't!
I think a club wishing to withdraw must give notice by 31st March otherwise they could get a fine of £1,000

For a club who has just borrowed X 100’sK the little matter of a grand shouldn’t be too much to worry about.

I see that the likes of Fakenham, Mulbarton, Lakenheath etc have been moved upwards to the ECL Premier.   What teams have joined into ECL Div 1 North ?

Has to be a mistake, surely....no point in having a feeder team ti the first team, if the feeder team is 5 rungs below.

Swaffham,Fakenham and March are able to offer a higher level of football than a Lynn Thurlow Nunn side, not to mention Heacham coming up fast behind. It would make sense for Lynn to tie up with another club or two and get these youngsters use to playing competitive men's football.
As it makes sense I doubt there's a lot of chance this happening.

Where do UEA play?  Last time I saw them was a park pitch down near the hospital.    I wonder ( or not) how they will be funded at this level.

Don’t they play at Dereham’s. ground  as there ground is going to be where Norwich rugby club is going to be based so a Hugh amount of money available I would think. I may be wrong

Yes at Dereham Town FC. I saw them play at Heacham a few weeks ago and they are  definitely capable of holding their own next season.

I guess being a Uni team then their squad will be quite fluid.

Bourne to Ipswich. What an horrendous journey.

Ipswich Wanderers moved to the Southern Division at their request
