THE Ridgeons League title, which has been on the cards for several weeks, finally came to fruition this week as successive victories over Histon Reserves and Mildenhall Town secured the points needed to lift the title.

There were ecstatic scenes amongst the players, officials and supporters at the end on Tuesday's game on the sloping Recreation Way pitch.

The Blues will now make a first ever trip to Wivenhoe tomorrow without any pressure as they look ahead to Tuesday's Suffolk Premier Cup Final against Needham Market at Portman Road.

Tuesday's cup final kicks off at the earlier than usual time of 7pm and must be played to a finish.

Thursday evening brings the penultimate Ridgeons league fixture to the Meadow with the likely league runners up CRC the visitors, kick off 7.45pm.

With Ross King's foot injury likely to keep him out of contention for the rest of the season, Jamie Stokeld is in line to keep his place in the side tomorrow, which would be his 500th first team appearance for the Blues, making him only the third player to reach this particular milestone in the club's history.

After a welcome week's break the Reserves return to action tomorrow with their last home league fixture when Woodbridge Town Reserves are the visitors, kick off 3pm.

The Youth team made it seven wins on the trot with a 3-0 victory over Norwich United Youth last week. They were due to end their home programme on Wednesday when Gorleston Youth were the visitors and complete their programme next week with away games at Dereham Town Youth on Monday and Norwich United Youth on Thursday.

Lowestoft's goalkeeper and Youth team manager Andy Reynolds will be holding a goalkeepers course.

The course is being held at the Denes High School on Thursdays between 5pm and 6pm for 10 weeks starting next Thursday.

The cost of the course is £30. Application forms can be obtained from the Denes High School, Lowestoft Town FC or by calling Reynolds on 07827 446071.
