THE LOWESTOFT Town management team of Micky Chapman, Ady Gallagher and Craig Fleming were given their early Christmas present on Saturday.

The Blues completed the signing of Joe Francis from Blue Square Conference North side Corby Town.

Francis had been a long-term target for the Blues since his career started at Woodbridge Town before spells at King's Lynn and Corby.

A left-sided player with an excellent goalscoring pedigree, Francis gave an insight of what the Trawler Boys can expect by netting a debut goal within a minute of coming off the bench. Francis has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Blues.

The Crown Meadow was one of only nine non-league grounds from steps 1-4 to survive the weather last Saturday and was completely clear of frost and snow to allow the top-of-the-table clash between Lowestoft and Thamesmead Town to go ahead.

The Blues are next in action with a trip to Brentwood Town on Boxing Day. At the Blues' request, kick-off has been brought forward to noon so that players, officials and supporters can get home to be with families in the evening.

The following Tuesday evening the Blues visit Maldon Town in another Ryman League fixture.

All fixtures for the other Lowestoft Town teams were postponed.

Meanwhile, forward Reece Hunn has gone to Gorleston on a month's loan.

On behalf of everyone at Lowestoft Town, Journal readers are wished a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Thomas Damerell, eight, of Avondale Road, won a Journal competition to earn his place on Lowestoft Town's and Waveney Football Club's annual Christmas holiday course, which took place at Crown Meadow on Wednesday.
