Fantastic football fans have been out in force across Lowestoft this week to give their superb backing to the town's top two teams.

Nearly 900 supporters have watched Ridgeons League Premier Division action at Crown Meadow and Walmer Road as Lowestoft Town and Kirkley & Pakefield continue to set the league alight.

On Tuesday, 672 fans turned up to watch the clash between league leaders, Town, and unbeaten rivals Leiston.

And the vast majority were left happy as a late goal from Ross King saw the Blues beat their Suffolk rivals and cement their position at the top of the table with seven wins from their eight games.

Then on Wednesday, 210 supporters headed to Walmer Road to watch Kirkley & Pakefield notch four goals without reply against Wroxham.

Former Yachtsman Justin Fox scored twice against his former side, with Nathan Stone and Ian Dawson also netting as Nick Shorten's men avenged an FA Cup defeat at Wroxham earlier in the season.

Tomorrow, Town put their unbeaten record on the line at home to Felixstowe & Walton, while K&P head south to Harwich & Parkeston.
