With the big kick-off just over a week away new Lowestoft Town boss Jamie Godbold has made his 10th and 11th signings of the summer.

Godbold has snapped up defender Matt Brown and central midfielder Danny Pinheiro after both impressed in friendly matches.

Brown has played three pre-season games for the Trawlerboys so far while former Gorleston man Pinheiro made his first appearance off the bench in last week’s 5-0 home win over Norwich United.

“I know Matty really well from him playing with me at Kirkley and am well aware of his attributes,” Godbold told the club’s official website. “I’ve always felt he could play at a higher level and think this opportunity comes at a good time for both club and player. He fits well into the system and the way we want to play and is a good lad to have in the dressing room.

“Dan is one of the players who excelled in the Norfolk County U18 team last year and he has done well enough in pre-season for us to want to see a lot more of him.

“He has a great attitude and is a very quick learner so will develop quickly playing and training with better players.”

The Trawlerboys round off their pre-season preparations on Saturday when they welcome Southend United’s U23s for the second year running following the Shrimpers’ 2-0 win last July.

Kick-off is 3pm kick-off and admission is £5 for adults and £1 for Under 16s.

Lowestoft open their campaign in the new Evostik Southern League Premier Division Central on Saturday week with a trip to the Midlands to face Halesowen Town.

Meanwhile the Amber Dew Events Stadium will play host to Taylor High’s charity football match on Sunday.

Waveney will play Ole Frank for the Taylor High Memorial Trophy, with gates opening at 1pm before kick- off at 2pm.

The match is played in memory of 19-year-old Taylor High, who died in a car crash in March 2011 and will see his Sunday league team Ole Frank attempt to win the trophy for a second straight year, after a win on penalties last time out.

The Taylor High Memorial Fund has raised over £100,000 since it’s inception and offers help to those in ill health or with disability in the Lowestoft area.
