The Linnets’ charge up the non-league ladder may have stopped this season – but the club’s supporters are still happy at what they’ve seen in 2013/14.
Fans took to our website to answer a survey about how they feel their beloved club fared in the Evo-Stik Premier Division following back-to-back promotions.
And almost half said, on a scale of one (extremely unhappy) to five (delighted), they would rate their team’s term as a four. The next most picked answer was a slightly less, but still respectable, three.
Building for the future has been a clear ethos with boss Gary Setchell placing five of his brightest young talents on a contract – a move which 44pc of respondents felt was the highest point of Town’s season.
On the flip side, 34pc thought the lowest point was the five-game losing run in March which ended any hopes of a surprise play-off finish.
Unsurprisingly, folk hero Dan Quigley walked the player of the season category with a a massive 71pc while an impressive 38pc said they were delighted at the job Setchell has done since taking sole charge of the club in October 2011.
Finally, 48pc of those who answered our short questionnaire said their main aim for next season was simple – for Lynn to maintain a serious play-off push.
