Lowestoft Town will set off on their current season's FA Carlsberg Vase trail with a home tie against fellow Ridgeons League side Tiptree United at the Crown Meadow on November 15.

Lowestoft Town will set off on their current season's FA Carlsberg Vase trail with a home tie against fellow Ridgeons League side Tiptree United at the Crown Meadow on November 15.

The Jammakers were promoted as First Division champions last season to reclaim their place in the Premier Division and are currently consolidating in a mid-table position at the higher level.

Tiptree United were the opposition in the Blues very first home FA Vase tie in November 1984 - a game that Lowestoft won by a single Micky Chapman goal.

The Blues continue to set the pace at the top of the Ridgeons League with a 3-1 victory over Harwich & Parkeston last Saturday.

Again they had to come from behind to claim the points with goals from Richard Woodrow, Darren Cockrill and Russell Stock.

Prior to the game a presentation was made to Ross King who was making his 300th appearance for the Blues.

Tomorrow the Blues face the proverbial banana skin as they travel to Haverhill Rovers.

Rovers have had a traumatic 2008 which has seen most of their senior players leave and their league position plummet to bottom place.

Former favourite Neil Farlie has been reinstalled as manager to try and get things back on an even keel for them.

Tuesday evening sees the Blues in cup action when they visit Whitton United in the Suffolk Premier Cup.

The Town have met Whitton just once before in the Suffolk Premier Cup.

The Reserves moved smoothly into the second round of the Chell Trophy with their single goal win giving them a 4-1 aggregate victory.

Henry Wyndham scored the all important goal shortly before the break.

It is more cup action tomorrow when they entertain Stonham Aspal Reserves in the Suffolk Reserve Team Cup, kick off as usual 3pm

The Youth team gave a below par performance away to Wroxham Youth last week and fell to a 0-3 defeat.

They were looking for FA Youth Cup success last Wednesday when they entertained Walsham Le Willows Youth and next Wednesday continue with cup football and a visit of North Walsham Town Youth in the Ridgeons Youth League Cup.

The Under 17s fixture on Sunday morning fell foul of the torrential rain. This week they are due to meet Bohemians.
