LOWESTOFT moved into the next round of the FA Cup thanks to a three goal victory over near neighbours Great Yarmouth Town.

Lowestoft's reward is another home tie in the first qualifying round against Dereham Town, also three goal victors in the preliminary round against Wroxham.

A first ever August Bank Holiday fixture for the Blues saw a visit to Leyton in a Ryman League fixture.

The pitch that awaited them was the worst I have ever experienced with players and helpers removing broken glass, flints and other debris from the middle of the pitch before the referee confirmed that the game could go ahead.

The game itself saw the teams fight out a 1-1 draw with Ross King again on the mark for the Blues.

Lowestoft have received their first Ryman League Award with their 5-0 victory over Concord Rangers receiving the club performance of the month for August.

Tomorrow Lowestoft have a first ever meeting with Northwood in a second versus third fixture.

The Middlesex side lost their top spot when beaten by Thamesmead Town on Monday afternoon. The game is being sponsored by Club Patron and Waveney MP Bob Blizzard.

Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher's quest for an experienced striker may be coming to an end with a seven day notice of approach issued for a player currently with a Conference North side.

The Reserves started their league programme with a 5-1 victory away to Gorleston Reserves. Danny Mitchell came off the bench to hit a second half hat trick with the other goals coming from Gary Williams and Christy Finch. Tomorrow they are on the road again when they visit Stowmarket Town Reserves.

The Youths have also made a bright start defeating Kirkley & Pakefield Youth 5-1 last week. Joe Clark hit two goals with the others coming from Matty Gauci, Christy Finch and Harley Peek. They were due to visit Gorleston Youth on Wednesday. Next week they visit Ipswich Wanderers Youth in the FA Youth Cup.

Five of the Blues Youth squad have been selected for the Suffolk Under-18 squad to play Bedfordshire at AFC Sudbury on September 17 - they are Mitchell Armstrong, Joe Clark, Christy Finch, Jack Garrod and Shane Risby.
