NEW and familiar faces returned to the field this week, as the town's top two football teams kicked off pre-season training.

Less than two months after the heroic Lowestoft Town players narrowly lost out in the FA Vase Final at Wembley, The Blues were back in training on Tuesday - as were their rivals from over the bascule bridge Kirkley and Pakefield.

NEW and familiar faces returned to the field this week, as the town's top two football teams kicked off pre-season training.

Less than two months after the heroic Lowestoft Town players narrowly lost out in the FA Vase Final at Wembley, The Blues were back in training on Tuesday - as were their rivals from over the bascule bridge Kirkley and Pakefield.

And for Lowestoft there were two new faces, who have been prominent in Norwich City's recent past, who helped the players get off to the best possible pre-season start ahead of the gruelling season.

Former Canaries skipper, turned fitness coach Craig Fleming teamed up with City's former sports scientist Dave Carolan in taking charge of the first Town session.

Over at Walmer Road, new signings Lewis Blois and former Wroxham duo Justin Fox and Lee Gilman were mingling with their new team-mates.

And there was a further boost to the K&P management team as talented teenager Chris Henderson agreed to sign a four-year contact with the go-ahead Walmer Road outfit this week.
