Lowestoft Town club notes by Terry Lynes

THE final curtain to last season's memorable campaign came down at a Ryman League meeting at Sutton United on Monday evening when it was announced that Lowestoft Town had won the fair play award for the season.

The award for the best disciplinary record compliments the Championship trophy and manager of the Year awards that also came to the Crown Meadow.

The award highlights not only the success that the Blues enjoyed but also that it was achieved in the right manner and is a further boost to the club's soaring reputation.

Last Saturday the Blues renewed acquaintance with Enfield Town - a club for which a very strong bond had been established last season. Like the two league games between the clubs, this game also ended all square.

The Blues' mean defence again never looked like conceding but at the other end the attack was lifeless until the introduction of Craig Bussens for the final half hour.

On Saturday the last pre-season friendly takes place with the Blues again renewing acquaintance with old friends in AFC Sudbury.

Lee McGlone is expected to be available again and is likely to be included in the squad. Two former Sudbury players in Curtis Haynes-Brown and Craig Bussens will also be keen to be involved.

The Reserves have a pre-season friendly also on Saturday when they entertain a Norwich-based side called Circle Anglia, a team coached by former Blues captain Stewart Reynolds. Kick-off is at 3pm.

The U18s were in action last Sunday holding AFC Oxford Arms to a 2-2 draw.

Calvin Vincent put the young Blues ahead with Joe Marsden hitting an equaliser. They were due to meet Waveney last night and next Wednesday entertain Watton Juniors, kick-off 7.45pm.

Last season's successful U15 side have moved up a year group and they have a run out on Sunday away to Dereham Town.

On the player front, Joe Clark, Louis Cutajar and Christy Finch have all signed long-term contracts with the Blues.

n Last month prior to the Cambridge United match, Lowestoft Town's first team were invited along to the town's library to “kick off the Space Hop Summer Reading Challenge.

The event proved to be a success according to a club spokesman and echoing those sentiments, Jane Rothon, assistant Library manager at Lowestoft Library said in a letter to the club's chairman Gary Keyzor: “Thank you all so much for coming along. What a great bunch of lads you have! Please pass on our thanks to all of them.”
