New King’s Lynn Town owner Stephen Cleeve has wasted little time in making his mark at The Walks.
Just 48 hours after taking over from Buster Chapman, Cleeve has announced that season ticket prices will be frozen next season for the first team, reserves and under-18s.
Cleeve has also decided that the under-16 concession will be extended to under-18s.
“With so many youngsters remaining now in education until 18 it is rare for the under 18s to go into full-time paid employment and we need to ensure that they can afford to come and support the Linnets,” he said. “So we will extend the concession to everyone under the age of 18 allowing entry for just £4 and of course the under-11s will still gain free entry to The Walks.”
Cleeve will meet the fans for the first time on June 7, with a fans’ forum at The Walks, along with first team manager Gary Setchell and reserves boss Robbie Back.
Lynn have also announced that former player Gary Mills is returning to the club as part of the coaching set-up – although he will also sign playing forms – working alongside Setchell and his assistant Neil Fryatt.
Going the other way is David Bridges, who is retiring from playing to concentrate on his successful business ventures and spend time with his family
Setchell said: “David will be missed by a lot of people at the football club but I totally understand his decision to call it a day on his fantastic playing career and pursue his business intrests and spend more time with his young family.”
