Lowestoft Town club notes by Terry Lynes

A GOAL two minutes from the end of normal time gave Lowestoft Town the points in a good performance against the talented youngsters of CRC.

A fairly tame first half had ended goalless as both sides tended to cancel each other out but the second half was a much more lively affair.

Bradley Hough opened the scoring shortly after the break following a right wing corner, which saw the ball twice come back into play off the crossbar before his decisive touch found the back of the net.

CRC's quick response saw them score twice in four minutes as the game swung in their favour. Lowestoft forced their way back into the game as they searched for the equaliser. The intricate skills of Gary Williams turned the game for the Blues as firstly he was unceremoniously dumped in the penalty area for the spot kick converted by Richard Woodrow.

He then provided the deep cross which was finally converted by Jamie Godbold for the winning goal. It was an excellent way for the teenager to celebrate his 18th birthday two days previously.

Tomorrow the Blues make the short trip down the A12 to take on Leiston and will renew acquaintance with two former players in Carl Chenery and Ian Smith who now form the management duo at Victory Road.

The Blues will be without the suspended Darren Cockrill and Russell Stock but will hope to have Reece Hunn and Ross King back in contention.

Next Wednesday evening the Blues travel to Kings Lynn Reserves for a Ridgeons League fixture postponed from last December.

The Reserves continued their climb up the table with a 2-1 victory away to Mattishall. Goals from Danny Mitchell and Ritchi High were enough to claim the three points despite the home side pulling a goal back in the final minute. Tomorrow they have a daunting task when taking on current league leaders Wroxham Reserves.

The Youth team were due to meet Fakenham Town Youth last Wednesday and their fixture next week takes them to Plantation Park on Thursday evening to take on Harford Tornadoes.
