I read your piece on the underdogs’ Ashes chances (November 24) and read it again thinking it included someone from Norfolk. Nope.

Then on Tony Pulis, what’s that got to do with little old King’s Lynn? No idea. Maybe you could have covered our LOCAL teams, ie NCFC or the Linnets, who are flying high – a bit of behind the scenes info would be of interest.

With all the media coverage at hand today, one should not have to rely on our YLP.

Gavin’s reply: I appreciate your comments and you make some valid points. I must note that all my columns have a local element though.

I’ve written pieces on the Linnets, local Parkruns and local football, for example, and will continue to do so where possible.

This column is trying to bring something a little different to YLP’s offering, hence pieces on local, national and international sport. The rest of our sports section covers everything you need locally so I don’t want to be replicating anything.

Thanks again for reading though and please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the future with further comments/suggestions.
