Just SC giving his reasons for charging what he does for Football at Lynn.  Must be some reason for him to devote a whole column to the subject.   Is he concerned by the numbers buying tickets ?

Think there are several points in SCís article that are worth discussing

Happy can you not see where the guy is coming from
In terms of admission costs ?   Yes itís expensive but thatís the cost to fans in Kings Lynn if they want to watch this level of Non League Football.    In fairness itís lucky the club doesnít have to pay rent ( other than peppercorn) for The Walks or it could be even more expensive admission.

Admission costs need to be lower and have a U.S.P that will appeal to the football fan and occasional football fan in the town.S.C can bang on all he wants but he has totally missed the point and as the crowds slip perhaps he can increase the prices to cover any more lost fans lol.

Personally, I believe that to be a fair assessment.

SC kept playing last season instead of joining Dover and its the fans who are having to pay for this error. Unless prices come down I will pick and choose games I watch .

Thatís the problem with sole ownership.  One person decides the fate of many.  Many felt we should have taken the 12 point deduction and not lumbered the club with over half a million debt, but itís done now.

Thing is would fans still stayed away if we was on -12 points ?? Would we of been able to attract the type of players we have ? I understand some view of admission £ but I cant see how weíve lost 1000 fans say because off that , tbh Iíve been disappointed by our 2 home game attendances  I honestly thought easily 3k each game but what will Wealdstone, Dover be ? Wrong side of 1500 Iíd say !
