King’s Lynn Town say they have received a ‘sizeable four-figure donation’.
With the National League club recently launching a fundraising appeal in light of the continued absence of matchday supporters and further grant funding, the donation has come from the family of a local football supporter.
Barrie Greaves passed away in December, and the donation was made after his daughter Dr Sarah Greaves saw King’s Lynn’s appeal.
Speaking to the club’s website, she said: “My father was first and foremost a Norwich City supporter, but he was also a football fan, and particularly a Norfolk football fan. King’s Lynn Town have had many links with Norwich over the years, and in their manager Ian Culverhouse, they have a player who I watched in my childhood, sitting with my father at Carrow Road.
“I know that if he had have seen this situation he would have wanted to do something to try and help. I don’t know if my father ever visited The Walks but I know that he went to games at Great Yarmouth when Norwich were away, and followed most of the results of the Norfolk football clubs.
“He loved the county.”
