King’s Lynn Town heavily fined for letting kids in for FREE to Play-Off’s last season!

Southern League Premier Central side King’s Lynn Town have found out this morning that they have been fined by the League and ordered to pay costs to Weymouth and Slough Town following their play-off games last season – as they let kids in for free.

Chairman Stephen Cleeve has taken to Twitter to vent his frustrations at the £1,141.65 bill he has received which they have seven days to pay it in.

It would appear that KLT did not confirm the ticket prices before their Play-Off Semi-Final against Weymouth and the Play-Off Final against Slough Town – and have fallen foul a League Rule.

KLT are proud that they let all kids in for free to all their games, and continue to do so this season.

The club was established in 2010 after King’s Lynn were wound up in 2009. They were admitted to the Premier Division of the United Counties League and were runners-up in their first season in the league, also reaching the semi-finals of the FA Vase, where they lost 6–2 on aggregate to Coalville Town.

After finishing as runners-up again in 2011–12 the club were promoted to Division One South of the Northern Premier League. They won Division One South at the first attempt, earning promotion to the Premier Division.

In 2015 the club were transferred to the Premier Division of the Southern League. In 2016–17 they won the Norfolk Senior Cup, beating Fakenham Town 2–0 in the final.

The club finished as runners-up in the Southern League Premier Division in 2017–18, qualifying for the promotion play-offs. After beating Weymouth 3–0 in the semi-finals, they lost 2–1 to Slough Town in the final.
