King’s Lynn appeal for help to fight FA charges

King's Lynn Town officials are appealing for help from supporters in their bid to fight FA charges relating to crowd disorder at the club's recent FA Vase semi-final against Coalville at The Walks.

The club's second leg 6-2 aggregate defeat was marred by incidents involving both sets of fans and the Ravens' management and substitutes.

Police made two arrests outside the ground on the day and Town have pledged to ban any individuals identified as being involved in the flashpoints.

A statement read: 'We would like people to send in information, testimonials, pictures and videos so that anybody identified as instigating trouble can be dealt with accordingly. Evidence will also be supplied to the FA to help the club defend charges brought against them.'

Supporters are advised to contact the club via email to

Meanwhile, Town are offering fans a discounted ticket to watch the remaining four home fixtures of the UCL Premier Division season. Lynn host Desborough on Saturday in the first of four matches in the space of a week and a special 'super' ticket will be available prior to the game allowing supporters to watch all four games for the price of three.

'We have had a fantastic season so far,' said chairman Buster Chapman. 'I would like the team to be coming out here and getting the support they deserve in their final matches. I know it is a busy end to the season but this is no-one's fault - it's just simply a consequence of the bad weather we experienced over the winter.'
