Lowestoft Town club notes by Terry Lynes

NEVER, never, never before in the 120 plus years of Lowestoft Town's history have the players, officials and supporters been so deliriously happy having seen their side fall to a three goal defeat.

As the final seconds ticked by the noise of the 300 or so Trawlerboys gradually increased in volume before reaching a crescendo as the final whistle sounded.

A mass invasion of the pitch saw the ecstatic Town players being mobbed as the Wembley dream became a reality.

The effects of the efforts put in on Saturday were reflected on Tuesday evening at Dereham with Reynolds, Potter and Stock all ruled out by injury and Godbold, King, Plaskett and Darren Cockrill allowed to rest their weary bones on the bench.

A 5-0 defeat then followed.

Tomorrow, the Blues will be on the road to Felixstowe & Walton and will be without the unavailable captain Marcus Saunders but will have Dale Cockrill available for selection after completing his suspension.

There is further Ridgeons League action on Tuesday evening when Histon Reserves are the visitors to the Meadow, kick off 7.45pm.

The Reserves gained an excellent point in an entertaining 3-3 draw with table topping Wroxham Reserves on Tuesday evening. Danny Mitchell hit a brace with the other coming from Danny Scriven.

They are in action again tomorrow when Dersingham Rovers are the visitors, kick off 2.30 and then next Wednesday evening North Walsham Town are the visitors, kick off 7.30.
