Smoke Bomb/Flare incident update

January 31, 2018

The club wishes to update its supporters following an incident at last night’s game with Hereford FC when a smoke bomb/ flare was thrown onto the pitch following Toby Hilliard’s winning goal.

The club can confirm that the incident was included in the match officials report which has now been sent to the FA. 


The football club will now await any actions that may be bought against the club by the FA in view of this incident.

Club Chairman Stephen Cleeve has issued the following statement: 


“I deeply condem these ridiculous actions carried out by this person/persons at last night’s game. Throwing this kind of missile is obviously very dangerous and could end up in injury of a serious nature. 


“I simply will not tolerate this kind of behaviour which only tarnishes the name of King’s Lynn Town Football Club and 99% of its loyal and sensible supporters. 


“I would appeal to the person/ persons who were involved in the incident last night to come forward and own up to their foolish actions or alternatively for any supporters who knows who committed this offence to contact myself or any Club Official with a name/names of the people concerned so they can be dealt with by the club. 


“These actions could possibly result in the club receiving at the very least a hefty fine or worse action. What was a memorable night for me has been spoilt by these mindless actions and I will not tolerate it anymore. 


Whilst the club should be enjoying and reflecting on a superb victory we are now very concerned as to what actions will now follow.
