ALL roads lead to the Crown Meadow tomorrow as an estimated 2,000 fans are expected to converge on the home of the Ryman League Division One North champions.
And sending out a rallying call to fans of the Trawler Boys this week, a proud Lowestoft Town chairman Gary Keyzor called on fervent fans to turn out en masse to honour the Blues tremendous success.
At about 5pm tomorrow, the roars will echo out around town as Ryman League chairman Alan Turvey and football secretary Bruce Badcock present the players and management with the championship trophy and mementoes.
It promises to be a fun-filled day of entertainment for all the family as Keyzor said: 'It will be a real family event, with face painting, clowns, balloon making, an ice-cream van and the launch of our new home kit - as well as the chance to see the players and management lift the Ryman League Division One North trophy.'

'All supporters must keep off the pitch at all times - the presentation ceremony can not take place if there are any spectators on the pitch,' a club spokesman said.
