A couple of weeks ago we were told that a replacement commercial manager would be named shortly and also that a new coach would be appointed.  I would have thought that now is the vital time to get these appointments made, but nothing from the club.

Hopefully the job of CM is being advertised to get the right candidates applying.  Rather than going for the easy option of giving the position to someone because they handy but maybe not suited with that particular role.

As for the new Coach, maybe the right person just isn’t available at the moment and IC would rather get the right man than someone who was ‘handy’

My issue is that now at pre season is when you need both a commercial manager and a coach in place.

Can’t argue with that BlueBoy.   Hopefully Mark Hearle did a lot of the Commercial side selling prior to him quitting the job.

B&G..... no media coverage seems to be coming from Mark Hearle.  Maybe he has left the club and is gainfully employed elsewhere.?

I think Blueboy is right.  But, imho, we have never had a CM at the club who gave me any optimism that they would have an impact.  Quite often we’ve heard, over the years, of a new appointment, followed by optimism from fans that the ensuing silence is due to plans being formulated, and soon to be put in place, then an announcement that a new CM has been appointed.  Then a new one, again, ad infinitum !  It is hard to sell the ambition of a club that has never made progress, apart from the last 2 or 3 years, of course.

Lynn News 6th July
"Most notably, Mark Hearle has stepped down as commercial manager and taken up a new role as head of operations. He will also act as the club's new programme editor."

I wonder how that's going and what it involves.

A lot of responsibility.
I would guess it means tearing his hair out on matchdays - although in Mark's case . . .

If its that stressful, how long will he put up with it?   :dontknow:

Wow, "head of operations".....things really are moving fast at the club....never expected that....extend the changing rooms yes, but have our own theatre... that's another league.......hope Mark knows his ACL's from his lower hamstrings and has a suitably sharp knife :laughcry: :laughcry:

On a very serious note tho, it seems the club might be hampered by SC feeling not many have got his back....seems reluctant to recruit from outside when it relates to day to day running or finances.
I have the greatest respect for MH, who seems willing to take on these rather challenging roles........ challenging they are tho  at this level and require a level of expertise.

The commercial manager role baffles me.. MH is a very decent guy but certainly not one with very much commercial accumen.

Myself amongst others chased to give the club last year in terms of sponsorship, often sending 2/3 emails with no response.

I hear many werent told why they hadn't recieved their sponsored players shirts yet alongside not even being contacted again to see if they wanted to sponsor programmes etc today as they have in their past.

SC does seem to make large steps forward but we still carry on with such simple mistakes which makes Lynn continually look tin pot.

As for justifying the current ticket prices, as much as we love to see Lynn at a higher standard, full time and with a fantastic manager, the match day experience doesn't exactly improve.

Although the football side may have improved since UCL days it seems the facilities and quality of match day fayre has plummeted. :dontknow:

As head of Operations that will come in handy during the season if a player breaks his nose, arm, leg etc. Save having to go to A & E.
I haven't got enough fingers and toes to count the times that we have been told in thge past some big news is coming, players signing, sponsors coming on board, commercial managers, etc etc etc.

I can think back at the number of times Tony M has posted on here about the Non Playing side not keeping pace with IC and the playing side.

Today as we look from the outside in the gap looks massive.
