"You try and do the right thing and get punished for it"

klfc linnets manager simon clark

It's left with Chairman of the Linnets feeling annoyed.

The King's Lynn side is being asked to compensate two teams over an issue with ticket sales.

Kids under 11 can currently attend matches at the Walks for nothing but this has caused some issues with other clubs.

Young fans of the all the clubs were let into the playoff matches free of charge.

The two teams say they weren't aware of this policy and want a percentage of the entrance fees

We spoke to Stephen Cleeves about the situation.

He told KLFM Linnets matches are about supporting the team and filling seats no about money:

"What I'm doing really is looking after the next gen and not myself because the next generation will benefit from this.

It's difficult for everyone in this day and age to be able to afford everything.

We need to keep the fan base growing especially in difficult times, it's always good to be able to give something back.

Offical league rules state that the club secretaries need to contact each other before matches to confirm the price of tickets.

This didn't happen before the playoff games.

Stephen said on Twitter:

"Both clubs should agree prices but our opponents never called us to agree them.

All three clubs were guilty of not agreeing entry prices but only one club is being punishined, having to pay money to the other two clubs and the league that has never been recieved."

We've approached the Southern Football League for comment.
