I will say this.Buster as had to dig deep into his own pockets to run our club,so those of you that think Buster is raking it in running Kings Lynn fc you need to think again all l am concerned about that there is a football team to watch but we have
Been down this road before and it gets a tad boring why can't people just accept things as they are and enjoy watching the Linnets

which part is boring?, people asking reasonable questions on an open discussion medium.  or the people who appear to be in the know, closing ranks, and pulling the drawbridge up.

ps, i thought buster said the club was self financing. seeing as you have opened the road up again.

Be careful you might get what you wish for I think the club is heading in the right direction with exciting young local players I thought that is what most of us wanted?

Cant remember to many people with an on the pitch problem we have done well,two leagues higher and good cup runs, just thinking what the possible potential is off pitch if certain things were different.

Except for the one and bit seasons in Conference North this is as high as the Linnets have ever achieved and that wonderful time bust the club. Be careful what you wish for.

One and a Bit seasons ?  I think thats a little bit of a selective memory there Tazzy.  As I recall when the plug was pulled we were in the Northern Prem having been relegated from the Conference North because the gorund did not comply and the work had not been down...  I dont think we went pop because of the standard we were playing at, more poor managment.  Then again a lot of decent Businessmen have gone pop, or would you say any person whose company has gone pop is a poor businessman ?

You are right there Cary but it was still spending more than we could afford chasing a dream.

The highest Lynn achieved was in the late 1950s early 60s when we received one vote in favour of us being elected to the Football League

That's a great piece of info Richard. Were King's Lynn in the Southern league at the time? Was that and the Northern league the top level of non league football at that time, and until the National Football League (Conference) was formed?

Our best was two votes in the 1957-58 season when we were in the Midland League.
Not sure how it worked then. Applicants for promotion to the Football League that season came from Midland League, Lancashire Combination, Southern League, Birmingham & District League and North Eastern League.

Is t all about the playing at National League or whatever??
How about Loyal Support 300-500 and working within the Community to develop our own players!!
Put money into good Local Training / Coaching facilities (Lynnsport) working with College / Schools / Youth FC in area to develop players.
In recent years; yes Dwyer, Heath Preston / Stocker have gone to pastures new but only recently the Fryatts, Mulready, Street, Hilliard, Yong, Edge, etc are coming on!  Ryan Fryatt now is a mature young player; don't denigrate Street as all keepers make cock ups(Hart v Norwich)!
The first priority is work in the Community which has been neglected in past 5 years!! Now Gary Setchell is making that effort! Its the way forward for Kings Lynn (outback town) and the Easthall, Johnston, Adams Defty's, and remember the 50's with many local players donning the shirt.
Think LOCAL with the odd maturity of Stevenson, Bircumshaw, Kabia, Cope etc!!  Keep working hard on our Community Gary!!

I think its great that we are now going back to developing home grown players, But Frontman the list of players you mention, did they not all leave lynn and learn their trade elsewhere ?  Mulready at Grimsby, Yong & Street at Wisbech  Hilliard at Swaffham & Dereham, Edge at Swaffham, Even Fryatt had a spell at Norwich.  Its a credit to each of these players though that have comeback to the Club, But lets not get carried away that these players all made their progression at Lynn.

Yes; Gaughran, Dwyer, Mulready, Fryatt went to Norwich , Cambridge etc but the links with schools, college, etc meant there were tabs on their names.
Gaughran released by Norwich at 15 yrs old and in Lynn's 1st Team t 16 yrs old. He went on to a contract at Peterborough and s now gracing Lynn a mature player. He made good friends at Kings Lynn FC and CWA which s a draw! 
The point is that the Community Programme and Youth FC  have the contacts.
Hilliard, Edge, went to those Clubs because Lynn ignored them!! But they are enjoying playing for their local team now!!  You accept that Friend, Street, Yong started at Wisbech; similar to the Rider's, Wiles brothers and McManus but Lynn benefitted from local contact!!
More available contact coaching, training etc.
And tonight the Community game v Histon is where it starts!!
