The committee of the Friends of the Linnets, official supporters club of King's Lynn Town FC, are pleased to be able to make a donation of £5,000 to assist the running of the club in the current climate.
Chairman Stephen Cleeve commented 'Huge thanks to the Friends of the Linnets for their donation to the club of £ 5,000. There are always cashflow issues when you run a football club, it is very much the nature of the beast but this situation dwarfs anything that I have had to endure since taking over at the helm.
The Friends have worked hard together over the season to raise funds for the club and many of the Friends have also donated in a personal capacity to the club. This situation if anything has bonded us all together and made us stronger and without the fans and supporter groups such as the Friends of the Linnets we as a club would simply not exist.
I would like to thank the Friends for their efforts and their support and would like to urge any King’s Lynn fan who is not already a member of the FOTL to join their merry throng as they are the only fan group that donates any money to the club. My heartfelt thanks goes out to every member of the FOTL who has helped in any way this season'.
FOTL committee member Jamie Heaphey further commented 'the FOTL regularly assist all teams of the football club throughout the season by purchasing equipment and assisting the A Team & Ladies team with pitch and referee expenses, however with the current lack of football and income it felt the right decision to help the club out with this donation. We hope all our members and non-members are keeping safe in this difficult time for the country'.
