Lowestoft Town club notes by Terry Lynes
Lowestoft Town produced a championship winning display against Cheshunt last Saturday to win the Ryman League Division One title at the first tie of asking. The football, particularly in the first half, was worthy of a much higher stage as the Blues hit five goals against a gallant but outclassed Cheshunt.

In a side with several newcomers this season it is perhaps fitting that the hat trick hero on this memorable day was Gary McGee who first graced the Crown Meadow as a member of the Blues Youth team in 1996 and is now just three games short of 400 senior appearances.
Jamie Godbold and Joe Francis were the other scorers before Cheshunt hit a consolation goal moments from the end.

The Blues made seven changes for the visit of Enfield Town on Tuesday evening including a first start for Joe Clark just a month past his 17th birthday. Enfield Town who are assured of a place in the play offs and the Blues fought out a highly entertaining goalless draw. The lack of goals was down to some excellent goalkeeping on both sides rather than any negativity.
Tomorrow the Blues travel to another side who have confirmed their place in the play offs - Wingate & Finchley. In the earlier game at the Meadow the Blues won by the odd goal of three with goals from Scott Mitchell and Matt Nolan.
