TWO goals in the first half sealed a fantastic 2-1 victory for Lowestoft Town today to help them progress into the quarter finals of the FA Vase.

It was history in the making for the Suffolk side who reached the last eight of the competition for the first time.

Joint-manager Ady Gallagher couldn't hide his delight at the final whistle after guiding his side into uncharterd territory in the Vase.

"We are making history now. We played a real top-class side today and came out on top. I couldn't be happier.

"Everyone is buzzing - this is a fantastic result for the club. We have had injuries and a mid-week game which have hampered our preparations, so I am obviously delighted."

Lowestoft have certainly saved their best form for the cup competitions, as they sit in mid-table obscurity in the Ridgeons League.

"This keeps our season going," admitted Gallagher.

"Our league form has not been good enough but to have booked our place in the quarter finals is fantastic for the club.

"We don't know who we'll get in the next round but no matter what, we have to concentrate on ourselves. I don't want to change things too much.

"Wembley is the dream and having come this far you begin to believe you can make it there."

The draw for the quarter finals take place on Monday.
