IT looks set to be another bumper week ahead for the town's top two football teams.

Table-topping Lowestoft Town have just one game in the next seven days as they look to continue their fine start to the season, which has seen them win 12 games, draw one and lose one in their opening 14 Ridgeons League fixtures.

IT looks set to be another bumper week ahead for the town's top two football teams.

Table-topping Lowestoft Town have just one game in the next seven days as they look to continue their fine start to the season, which has seen them win 12 games, draw one and lose one in their opening 14 Ridgeons League fixtures.

While it proved to be unlucky 13 last Saturday, as The Blues lost their unbeaten league record in a 3-0 away defeat at CRC, they bounced back in stunning style with a 2-1 away win at third-placed Dereham to move six points clear of second-placed Wivenhoe.

“We had a big setback on Saturday, bounced back on Tuesday and are now aiming to continue our good start to the season tomorrow,” joint Blues boss Micky Chapman told The Journal.

Tomorrow, Lowestoft will be aiming to keep their unbeaten home record intact as they host Woodbridge Town at Crown Meadow.

Over the Bascule Bridge, there are equal home comforts for a resurgent Kirkley and Pakefield side. But Nick Shorten and his men face a tough schedule of three home league games in the next eight days - prior to the FA Vase game at home to Dereham on November 15.

“Saturday saw another good 2-1 win against Mildenhall, and we are now getting back to last season's form!” Dave Woodruff, K&P's commercial manager told The Journal.

With games in hand on most of their rivals, K&P will be aiming to move onwards and ever upwards from their current 12th place in the league table.

Tomorrow they entertain Histon Reserves, before Felixstowe and Walton United are the visitors to Walmer Road on Wednesday.

And then next Saturday, the club will be honoured during an action-packed day at Walmer Road. For K&P will collect the Eastern Region Community Club of the Year award from Suffolk FA and Waveney MP Bob Blizzard.

“This award is on top of our county award and is given for our work with young people, the disabled, the underprivileged and schools in our area”, Woodruff said.

“Like ourselves at K&P, the FA recognise that this work done in the community is just as important as the results on the pitch - and with over 30 youth teams we are leaders in this field.”

It promises to be a day for all the family next Saturday, as prior to the clash with second-placed Wivenhoe there will be another three-course pre-match luncheon for supporters and sponsors.

Children will be able to watch match FREE on that day and K&P parents can also get into the game for a concession price of £3. And as well as this, there will be the chance for all fans, sponsors, players, committee members and families to vote for the club's nickname and Terrace Chant.

“We still have seats available for our pre-match meal at £15 per head - bring along guests for the afternoon extravaganza of good food, good company and good networking opportunities!” Woodruff said.

To book your place on November 8, simply telephone Mr Woodruff on 01502 741588.

The merry band of Lowestoft Town supporters - The Trawler Boys - will be holding their next Trawler Boy meeting in the Social Club at 1pm tomorrow before the match against Woodbridge.
