Lowestoft Town Club Notes by Terry Lynes

WITH a rare free Saturday, Micky Chapman, Ady Gallagher and the Blues first team squad were guests of Norwich City at Carrow Road for the Canaries home game against promotion chasing West Bromwich Albion and were rapturously applauded as they did a half time lap of honour.

Feted and rested the Blues then produced a fine attacking performance against Wisbech Town on Tuesday evening but looked as if they were going to be denied two points by a hard working Wisbech side inspired by a superb goalkeeping performance by Chris Horton.

The Fenmen's keeper was finally beaten in added time by a Ross King strike which gave the Blues maximum points. Over the 90 minutes the Blues deserved to take the points but with a modicum of sympathy for the visitors.

Tomorrow sees the last home game of the season for the Blues when Walsham le Willows make their first Ridgeons League visit to the Meadow with the usual 3pm kick off. The game is being sponsored by Sunningdale Associates and the match ball by Andy and Stewart Sharman.

The Reserves fell to two odd goal defeats this week but deserved to get at least a point from both games. Against Hindringham on Saturday they trailed by two goals at the interval but hit back in the second period with goals from Gary Williams and Ritchi High. As so often happens having fought back to level the scores a lapse of concentration allowed the visitors to snatch what proved to be the winner moments later.

It was a similar story against Cromer Town on Wednesday evening. Cromer went in at the break a goal to the good but Danny Mitchell levelled the scores early in the second period. Cromer hit the winning goal three minutes from time to seal their runners up position in the Anglian Combination.

The Youth team raced into a three goal interval lead away to North Walsham Town Youth with strikes from Christy Finch, Gary Williams and Danny Mitchell. The Young Angels though came out fired up for the second period and hit three goals to level the scores. Zak Clarke then moved up to score from a corner to give the Young Blues a 4-3 victory.

On the injury front Andy Reynolds is inching his way to fitness for the FA Carlsberg Vase final. Matty Potter has had keyhole surgery on his back problem and hopes to return to training shortly and Russell Stock is due to have his plaster cast removed.

Dale Smith helped the Suffolk County Under 18 squad win the FA County Youth Cup final with an odd goal of three victory over Cambridgeshire U18s.
