King's Lynn Town withdraws from Thurlow Nunn Leagues
Following restructuring within the club, it has been announced that Lynn will be withdrawing their teams from the Thurlow Nunn (Eastern Counties) League and the Thurlow Nunn Youth League.
In a statement on the club website, the reasons behind this decision is given as a "lack of a venue to both play and train for matches being a major stumbling block. Another reason is the fact that most of the players for both teams either are or will be enrolled in the club's highly successful Academy partnership with KES which will see an Under 19's team competing in the National League's Under 19 Alliance competition, meaning we wouldn't have the resources to compete in all competitions in a way which would effectively benefit all players. The Academy side will represent the club in next season's FA Youth Cup competition."

Over the years a King's Lynn Reserve team has joined and left the Eastern Counties League a number of times, first joining in 1959 and staying until 1971 and then another spell 1988-93 returning again in 1994-95 season only to disband in 1996.
A further spell saw them rejoin in 2001 until the old club folded in 2009.
As King's Lynn Town Reserves the club returned to the league in 2014.

Pledge scheme given boost
The Linnets' pledge scheme was given a boost with the news that they had received a "large four-figure sum" from Dr Sarah Greaves, part of a "football mad family" based in South London. Seeing the club's appeal on Twitter, Dr Greaves made the donation from the estate of her late father, a keen Norwich City supporter.
Sarah said: 'My father was first and foremost a Norwich City supporter, but he was also passionate about football in general.
"He loved his sport, football in particular and was so proud to be from Norfolk.
"I know he would have seen the King's Lynn story and thought that it was such a shame and it seemed like a wonderful idea to help out."
Tuesday 23rd February
Linnets launch donation pledge scheme
The club have announced the launch of the 'Linnets Donation pledge' scheme.
On the club website chairman Stephen Cleeve explains that the scheme will hopefully "give assistance to [the club\'s] current financial plight following the ongoing pandemic situation which has seen only one fixture with a crowd allowed inside the stadium this season, and the announcement of the National League's resolution last week that the league should continue despite financial help being offered to clubs only in the form of loans and not grants as had been the case between October and December.

Priced at £300 each, the pledges are available to purchase by clicking the link HERE. As a way of saying thank you for your donation I will allow entry to the next ten games played at The Walks. This may be the Aldershot fixture at the end of the present season or the pre season games and early league fixtures of season 2021/22. It would be fair to say that unless a substantial amount of these pledges are taken up there is no guarantee that we will be able to continue this current season. I have also estimated that it will cost around £100,000 if we do not continue the season."
For anyone wishing to make a smaller donation this link may be of use.

COVID issues postpones trip tp Altrincham
A statement on the club website reads:
"Tomorrow evening's scheduled National League fixture at Altrincham has been postponed by the National League due to an ongoing COVID investigation at The Walks.
Following assistant manager Paul Bastock's positive test on Christmas Day, full back Aaron Jones also provided a positive COVID test over the festive period. Aaron's last contact with any of his team mates or club management was on December 22nd - the fixture away at Alfreton Town in the FA Trophy.
A procedural error took place within the club, which has now been rectified, in relation to the situation involving Aaron with the National League informing the club that they had taken the decision to postpone the game early this morning.
No other players or club management are having to isolate because of the situation and we expect to be back in action this weekend when we visit Hornchurch in the FA Trophy."
