New Lowestoft Town manager Jamie Godbold has added two more players to his squad, bringing the number of signings since he took over at the end of May up to seven.

He has brought in teenage goalkeeper Billy Johnson from Norwich United and 25-year-old defender Josh Curry from Mildenhall, with the Blues’ squad now taking shape ahead of the opening pre-season friendly on July 11.

The pair join Reiss Awuah, Adam Tann, Connor Deeks, Henry Pollock and Connor Ingram as new signings, while five players from last season, Andrew Fisk, Adam Smith, Jacek Zielonka, Armani Schaar and Elvijs Putnins, have committed to the cause.

Johnson, who will be battling with Putnins from the keeper’s jersey, told the club’s website: “I feel this is a good step for my progression - it’s a good club.”

Curry said after putting pen to paper: “I felt I had a good season in the league below and felt I proved myself so when the opportunity came up to play in the league above I couldn’t turn it down.”
