Yes, true and of course they have less influence on the atmosphere within the ground if tucked away

Any mention of ticket sales to Lynn fans? :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:
They had come to a time when no one dared speak his mind, when fierce, growling dogs roamed everywhere, and when you had to watch your comrades torn to pieces after confessing to shocking crimes.

Yes, agreed we could do with some Lynn fan ticket info....only seen the initial twitter post of over 1500 tickets sold incl. 800 for away terrace.

Based on the current numbers, does that mean there is a fair chance Southend will have more fans in than Lynn?

I really hope the club, stewards, and police are on top of this.  If we wish to stay at this level, and now we’re 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 won’t 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 can’t 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 ?

Investment in the ground and facilities is long overdue,I think that it is possible to extend the covered terrace opposite the main stand,albeit not massively? :dontknow:

It was the same when York City came to Lynn that although they had their areas of terracing, there were York fans in the main stand and with no trouble in that area.

Morning Linnets

I think my user name makes it clear I'm a Shrimper and very much looking forward to this game. It's already been said that we will be bringing a few of the faithful along, and after so long without watching live football I reckon we all, you and us, will be up for this match. The weather forecast is looking good so it should be ideal for a good game of football. Yours is a new ground for us so are there any eateries near the ground or is it part of the complex only? Similarly, some of ours will be looking for watering holes, so are there any you would recommend? Cheers all, see you on 21st.
What if the Hokey Cokey is what it's all about?

Away end now sold out - do you think any more tickets will be provided for visiting supporters?

Gris, I think the terracing opp the stand already stretches almost to the corner flag so not much room there. The obvious place for new terracing, or preferably a stand is behind the hospital end and I think the Football Foundation is the place to look for funding.
If a stand was built in the correct manner there would still be room for car parking underneath.

Surely it needs regular crowds of 5,000 to warrant a new stand being built.   Southend maybe will bring say 1200.  Will 3,800 Lynn fans turn up for this one?   Be interesting to know how many tickets have been sold for the Southend game, in total

What's the chance of all the home sections being sold out?

Wouldn't it be sensible to allocate all the Tennyson Rd end (or even the North Stand) to away fans  when a big following is expected?

Paying £21 to be packed in a corner seems a bit of a rip off and very Borehamwoodesque.


Bank Holiday Monday could prove interesting!!!!

Mall, I thought SC mentioned in a podcast that we will be required to increase the seating capacity sometime.

Kenny, I would have thought it more prudent to payback the debt SC has run up in the Clubs name without potentially lumbering it with even more debt by building a new Stan’s that could well not be needed.

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