The Linnets are pleased to announce a new sponsor for the main stand.
The anonymous benefactor has paid £25,000 and said ‘ Although I have never visited The Walks ( I have lived most of my life in deepest South Norfolk ) I have, like many Norfolk sports fans, always kept an eye on how King’s Lynn are doing. Like many people, I was saddened by the prospect that such a club with a long history was facing extreme financial difficulties whilst playing National League football. It would, in my opinion, have been such a sad loss to the community and also to a lot of good people who have put in some seriously hard work over the years to keep the club alive. I feel fortunate that I have been able to make this contribution to assist the Linnets in the National League for next season, along with many others which will help keep this important football club alive”.
Linnets Chairman Stephen Cleeve added “I would like to thank on behalf of myself, our fans and everyone connected to King’s Lynn Town FC for this very generous, selfless sponsorship. It has been a very difficult season with the club borrowing hundreds of thousands of pounds from the government to stay afloat and its gestures such as this that move the light that much closer to the end of the tunnel. Whilst the club is far from out of the woods this individual’s donation has significantly changed the complexion and outlook for King’s Lynn Town FC. What makes the gesture even more special is that the ‘ sponsor ‘ has yet to even visit The Walks and this is something that I hope to resolve sooner rather than later”.
The Linnets are currently on the longest winless run since the club was reformed but whatever happens, will still be playing National League Football next year. As long as things continue the way aew we will have a whole season ahead to enjoy games at the Walks as well as the clubs final two home games this season. It was announced in the last fortnight that crowds would be allowed into the Walks for the games against Solihull Moors and Aldershot Town, the first of which is the 25th May (This Tuesday Evening).
