...were demoted, but have lodged an appeal with the Conference and have instructed lawyers to fight on their behalf.
To add insult to injury the Conference allowed Hampton and Richmond to take their place in the play-offs, even though that club has failed to get planning permission or funding to build permanent terraced seating as required by the Conference.
It has been pointed out that no mention of demotion was received by the Linnets earlier in the season, and as the stadium is owned by the Borough Council...under guidelines, they would not have allowed anyone onto the site during work.
Further to that...it appears in informal talks the Conference are taking a hard line, and there is no flexibility in King's Lynns case, even though the Conference chairman has promised more in general...
The issue is, they are required to have six turnstiles(I don't know how many they currently have)...they have a ground clearance of 5300 with the present set up.
The local authority have said they were advised that starting work after the April 1 deadline would be fine, as long as it was a guaranteed start and would be completed before the start of next season, and have been in constant touch with the Conference, with never a mention of demotion or it not being satisfactory.
