The club have been made aware of matters arising from a coach, chartered independently from King’s Lynn Town FC, that yesterday travelled to York City carrying supporters for our National League North fixture.
We have it on good authority that when the coach arrived at a motorway service station the organiser of the coach was approached for the balance of money to cover the cost of the coach hire which the person was unable to provide. It was made clear that if the monies were not provided the coach would be returning back to King’s Lynn. It was at this point that a regular supporter, known to the club , paid the balance of the money ( a large amount) so that the coach could continue on its journey, which it did. Clearly this is a very unsatisfactory and disturbing situation.
The club wishes to distance itself from the person who chartered this coach and again clarify the person is not officially affiliated in any way to King’s Lynn Town FC. We also wish to advise supporters wishing to use official coach/ minibus travel to contact the following people: Mark Mortimer, Matt Hannay or Jamie Heaphey. They are always contactable via all social media platforms and at the ground on home match days.
The next transport arranged is currently for Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday 26th October, any FA Cup ties pending.
We will be contacting the person responsible for the coach on Saturday for an explanation to the circumstances surrounding this incident and to also express our wishes that he runs no further coaches to King’s Lynn Town football club fixtures.
We offer our apologies to any supporters who were alarmed or upset by Saturday’s events.
