The Linnets have unveiled their new home and away kits for the 2024/25 season and start their pre-season campaign on Friday.Four members of the squad modelled the new Capelli Sport kits at The Walks yesterday (Tuesday) evening, at a free event where manager Adam Lakeland and chairman Stephen Cleeve also took questions from fans.Lakeland’s men are in action at United Counties League Premier Division North outfit Deeping Rangers on Friday (7.45pm kick-off) before visiting Isthmian League North Division outfit Wroxham next Tuesday night (7.30pm).Then come two more games against Isthmian North sides, at Mildenhall Town on Friday 12 and at Bury Town on Tuesday 16 (7.30pm), before a visit to Southern League Premier Division Central team Stamford on Saturday 20.They go to Eastern Counties Premier League side Soham Town Rangers on Tuesday 23 (7.45pm) and Southern Premier Central team Leiston on Saturday 27, before home games against League One Northampton Town on Tuesday 30 (7.45pm) and a Luton Town XI on Saturday, August 3.Their National League North campaign will start on Saturday, August 10 with the fixture list being released on Wednesday, July 10.At the launch of the multi-year partnership with Capelli Sport on Tuesday, the Linnets revealed a new home kit that “draws on the classic blue-gold stripes that fans have been so accustomed to, but with a retro twist.“The neon green away shirt draws on an old classic from the 19/20 champion’s away kit, and integrates the town’s architecture with the Custom House – to build a greater connection between the town and the club”. The club also revealed another backer this week, with Lynn company Worldwide Scaffold and Access sponsoring the first team’s home and away shirt sleeves next season as well as being the main shirt sponsor for Lynn’s academy teams. Worldwide Scaffold and Access CEO Tony Stevens said: “We are a local company and I am personally delighted to be sponsoring our local club.“As a global operation I can see how King’s Lynn Town FC have made huge strides not just locally in the community through their academy and their charity Linnets in the Community but I am also impressed with how the club are doing things differently on and off the pitch.“After meeting with chairman Stephen Cleeve I felt very much at home and I am looking forward to supporting the club at The Walks and at some away games this season.”Mr Cleeve responded: “I am so pleased that Tony Stevens and Worldwide Scaffold and Access will be supporting the club going forward. Tony is an infectious character and it was no surprise to me that just a few days after our first meeting, he sent me a picture from Trinidad showing several of his clients wearing King’s Lynn shirts in the Caribbean.“Tony is not the kind of guy to do anything by halves and I can’t wait to see him and his team with smiles on their faces at our games this season. I am truly grateful for Tony’s support.”
