LOWESTOFT'S experienced resources are currently being stretched to the limits with Carl Poppy, Bradley Hough and Reece Hunn joining long term absentees Andy Reynolds, Matty Potter and Dale Cockrill on the casualty list.

Tuesday evening then saw Craig Lewis added to the list with selection options further curtailed by Ally McKenna's work commitments, which makes him unavailable for midweek games.

On Saturday the Blues made light of their problems as they convincingly defeated Wisbech Town 4-1. The immaculate Russell Stock netted two excellent goals with Jamie Godbold and Ally McKenna also on the mark. That victory maintained the Blues six point lead at the top of the table.

Tuesday evening brought the eagerly awaited rematch with Leiston and the League Cup tie lived up to all expectations. Two evenly matched sides produced an excellent contest that was eventually settled in Leiston's favour 2-0.

Tomorrow the Blues are on their travels with a visit to the newly renamed Trade Recruitment Stadium to take on CRC. The Cambridge youngsters can be relied upon to play the game in the right manner and are enjoying better fortunes this season. Tuesday evening then sees the Blues visit their bogey ground - Dereham Town. Any reward the Town gain at Aldiss Park will be very much a bonus.

Town Reserves can do no wrong at present and earned another three points with a 5-2 victory away to Ipswich Wanderers. For a period the Reserves were actually trailing before coming good with four further goals. Danny Mitchell claimed a brace with the other goals coming from Gary Williams, Jake Armes and an own goal. Tomorrow they have a home game against Stowmarket Town Reserves, kick off 3pm.

The Youth team produced an excellent display to shatter North Walsham Town Youth's 100pc record with a 5-1 victory to move into the second round of the Ridgeons Youth League Cup. Christy Finch hit four of the goals with Louis Michalski getting the other. They were due to meet Gorleston Youth at Emerald Park last Wednesday and next Wednesday take on Burnham Ramblers Youth in the Eastern Junior Cup, kick off 7.45pm.

The U17 side suffered their first defeat last Sunday going down 1-3 away to Caister, Robert Kane scoring their solitary goal. This Sunday sees them meeting Hemsby with a rare outing at the Crown Meadow, kick off 10.30am.
