Mall, I can't disagree with that sentiment but the Football Foundation gives grants, not loans.

Get that Kenny but would they stump up the full amount of a % of the cost?  Would the Council be prepared to support it and slap it on the rates. The Club would have to contribute a certain %, I assume. Thatís the bit thatís raises a flag.

70%of eligible costs up to 400k, by the looks of it....so on a covered area costing 250000 club would need to find 75k...... don't think The Trust or Friends are quite ready for that.

Does The National Lottery provide separately for this type of thing ?

Don't think you can........thought it had to be used to support day to day activities and to keep club afloat, rather than an extra investment.... probably ok if it was a grading requirement.

I really hope the club, stewards, and police are on top of this.  If we wish to stay at this level, and now weíre here, most would, we MUST get some real sponsorship, or generosity, to build additional terraces and steps to be added to existing terraces, plus cover, or there is a danger that we simply wonít be able to cope.  There is the large flat area at the Old Hospital end of the main stand, that MUST acquire a substantial terrace as soon as possible.  We canít have large areas like that, that cannot house spectators, because there are bigger crowds waiting to come once Covid subsides, and big clubs arrive.  If we compete on the field, many more local fans are also likely.    Are there grants for such erections, available for H & S purposes ?
That large parcel of land was part of the ground until the mid-late 60s. Used to be a scoreboard there that we used to climb at half time to give the scores from the then Division 1.
In the early 2000s when on the management committee i am sure that the materials were bought for a covered standing area behind that goal and the last i heard the materials were stored on the docks. Heard nothing more about that though.

That's really interesting and the sort of info that only someone who has been around the club for some time and been deeply involved would know about Gordon.......I wonder if anyone in the current regime is aware ? (There are many potential negatives in alienating those, that in the past have "supported the club in a variety of ways"......loss of potentially useful historical information being just one of them )

Ps Remember the score board and having to check which letters/numbers related to each match by looking at the programme, if memory serves me

I believe a lad named Pooley used to put the scores up on the scoreboard.

Also vaguely recall another set of alphabet letters down the Tennyson Avenue end of the ground, was it on the wall of the covered standing area opposite the main stand towards the corner flag or in the vacinity??
Followed KLFC until 2009.

Kes, there is a wealth of experience out there which could have been used for the benefit of the Club and Community.

Sadly too many bridges have been burnt for that to happen now and that is a huge shame.

I see the club is looking at finding a way to accommodate another 300 Sarfend fans at the ground.   800 in the corner, X ( unknown number) amount in the main stand.   Now a likely 300 elsewhere.

I really hope the club has all its ducks in a row for this one.  Get it wrong and the knock on effect could have repercussions for the season.

By Shrimpers fans taking seats in the main stand and now 300 more being offered elsewhere does this indicate Lynn fans are not buying into it in the way the club had hoped ?

Yep. If our segregation and crowd control are not up to scratch when the big Clubs come calling (not saying they're not, only time will tell), it could cause major problems. i.e. future reduced capacity, ban on away fans etc.

The financial impact of that happening would be enormous. The H & S guy could well hold the future of the Club in his hands.
The greater the artist, the greater the doubt.
Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

Hope people stick to the seats they purchase in the stand and not a fre for all how it used to be.

Kenny, you are so right about that. It is ludicrous that people like Gordon and there are others, have been alienated.

By the way i have never met Gordon but am very aware of his all round contribution to the club over many years.

A true supporter!!
