Manager wants fan power as Linnets begin new season

August 9, 2018

The Linnets begin their 2018/19 Southern Premier Central Division campaign on Saturday with the visit of Biggleswade Town to The Walks (3pm). 
Town will be looking for an opening-day win to get their season off to a flying start with tough away fixtures at Kettering Town and Tamworth to follow in the first week of the campaign.
Manager Simon Clark wants the town's fans to get fully behind the team as they look to mount another sustained promotion challenge.
Clark said: "The support of the fans is massive, it's absolutely huge for this football club.
"We've seen in the play-offs from last year the numbers we can get and we want them behind us.
"All I can say is come and watch us and come on the journey with us because we will be giving it a right go."
Clark has made some exciting summer captures and the likes of Harry Limb, Jordan Richards and Rory McAuley are all expected to feature in Clark’s maiden league matchday squad. 
The Linnets followed up last weekend’s final warm-up win over Spalding United with two tough training sessions under the watchful eye of Clark and his assistants Lee Beevers and Sam Gaughran this week.
Clark added: "Saturday is about trying to beat Biggleswade and then preparing for Kettering, that's it."
Biggleswade will travel to Norfolk in confident mood following a summer that has seen the arrival of several new signings to Langford Road, including the likes of Peter Clark, Curtis Ujah and Striker Pierre Joseph-Dubois - the striker being described by manager Lee Allinson as a ‘natural goalscorer'. 
The Waders are keen this season to improve on their 16th-place league finish and also the three-goal defeat they suffered against the Linnets on their last visit to Norfolk.
Meanwhile Lynn Reserves will be looking to build on their winning start to the new season. 
On Tuesday evening, a brace from Jack Frowhawk secured a memorable 2-1 victory at highly-fancied March Town United. 
On Saturday, they travel to Brewers Green Lane, the home of Diss Town, for a Thurlow Nunn League Division One Norfolk derby (3pm).
