King’s Lynn Town owner Stephen Cleeve has revealed how he was ‘humbled’ by an act of kindness from one of the club’s young players.
Cleeve is working to lessen the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic, which has seen the Linnets games suspended until April 3 at the earliest.
He has held talks with players to soften the financial blow, but one act of generosity has stood out.
“We have a number of young players, not in the first team squad, on deals where they earn a certain amount a week,” he said. “It’s not huge, but it is reasonable money. One of the fathers has offered to pay back all the money his lad has earned from this season so far.”
