DECKED out in blue and white, there was a real heroes welcome for Lowestoft Town players, management and officials.

For celebrating their successes on the road to Wembley, the Foxburrow Beefeater, welcomed the FA Vase finalists to their restaurant on Yarmouth Road on Thursday, last week.

A squad of 12 players, joint managers Ady Gallagher and Micky Chapman, the club's physios, vice-chairman Joe Annis and sales and marketing director Jenny Gillett, all toasted the success of their run in the competition.

Ahead of an historic trip to Wembley on Sunday May 11, as Lowestoft take on Lancashire-based Kirkham & Wesham in the FA Vase, there was a three course meal for the guests.

“The Blues have done wonders for community spirit by getting into the final and we wanted to show our appreciation by treating them to a meal,” Andy Huggins, general manager at the Foxburrow, told The Journal.

“We made a huge effort to decorate the restaurant in their honour and hopefully give them a good send off as they make their way to Wembley.”

Delighted with the honour, joint Blues boss Micky Chapman said: “This is such a nice gesture - a big thank you goes to the team at Foxburrow. We are extremely grateful to them for being asked - and the whole club really appreciates their kindness.”

And joining them was Woody Bear, from Pleasurewood Hills, who has become the latest die hard fan to show his support for the Trawler Boys.

Woody, who has been to several games at Crown Meadow over the years, even offered his services as a substitute if required on the day!

Pleasurewood Hills is giving away discounted entry vouchers to anyone who purchases a match ticket for the final. Each voucher will save £2.50 off the entry price to Pleasurewood Hills for the 2008 season as the theme park celebrates its 25 Anniversary.
