1906, that makes a good read. Many thanks.

£20,000,000 to end up in the same league and level as Kings Lynn.

Maybe people chasing the dream of league football at all costs, should take note.

I bet they don't.

Some interesting comments on Sarfend forum.

https://www.shrimperzone.com/forums/threads/kings-lynn-and-wealdstone-tickets.107824/page-12

Apparently the Walks has a capacity of 8,000!



Copied and pasted one of the posts, but all pages of the thread ( Kings Lynn and Wealdstone tickets) makes interesting  reading if People have the time.



Mr Browns Ghost


So who has just received an absolutely shocking email from KingsLynn football club about the purchase of tickets within the main stand??




Iím contacting you today because we believe you may be away supporters booking seated tickets in the home section. We are this season segregating every fixture and donít at this moment in time have any away seating to allocate. However we understand that some people do indeed require a seat and we can accommodate your ticket allocation if you are needing this.



If you do require a seat and want your ticket to remain in force you need to contact us before 16:00 Monday 16th August 2021 and tell us your age and reasons why you require a seat. Any ticket holder that fails to respond to this email will find their tickets cancelled and you will be refused access to the ground on the day of the fixture.

Apparently all our games this season will have segregation.

How do you segregate Southend fans when we are selling tickets to them in places all over the ground?

As for their fans having to phone up to inform Zoe of their age and why they need to sit down, is this some kind of joke ?   How many are gonna just tell her what she needs to hear.

This all seems an accident waiting to happen. We are mixing with some big boys now.  People need to feel safe when attending a game of Football.

Think the Club needs to come out with a much better system of buying tickets than this. Surely Lynnís H&S Officer must be all over this one.

Well, IF there are ANY flimsy measures in place at this level, within any club, they are likely to be quickly  highlighted and sanctions and fines could follow. Let's hope the club is "watertight". From the off we are entertaining an ex League side, whose fans, players and management expect certain standards.

When you register to buy tickets you have to give your age .surely  the away team should  be allocated so many tickets in main stand and rest is for home supporters.

Can you imagine what will happen if 40 or so Sarfend supporters turn up with tickets to the stand, but are then refused entry?

A quick walk around to 800 of their fellow supporters to inform them how they have been treated, and all hell could break loose.

How on earth was this allowed to happen? 


Club:  "If you do require a seat and want your ticket to remain in force you need to contact us before 16:00 Monday 16th August 2021 and tell us your age and reasons why you require a seat".

What age has go to do with being allowed to sit in the stand is beyond me. Many parents with children prefer the stands for safety reasons. Have we just invented Ageism in football? You don't have to be a certain age to want to enjoy your football from a sitting position.

According to Southend fans forum they have bought over 1200 tickets so far.  How many will the corner away section hold ?

I have always thought the segregated area to be too small and I think it will totally inadequate for certain games this season.

In addition Ken, I think it's a bit mean...I don't know if you agree, but the view from that corner isn't great....I would advocate giving more of the covered terrace opposite the main stand.

 In fairness KES. watching any game from behind a goal is not the best.  Iíd never stand/sit behind a goal now.  You see half a game from there.

That was my thought actually. I think it rained heavily during the Boston game and a lot of people had to stand and endure it as the covered section was rammed.

As far as position and view are concerned, I think it is quite common for the visiting supporters to be ' tucked away'. The last time I went to Carrow Road the visitors had a small section adjacent to the hotel.
