NINE points from three games in six days has seen Lowestoft Town open up a seven-point lead over nearest rivals Concord Rangers and they still have two games in hand on the second placed club.

A vastly superior goal difference is also in the Blues favour.

So many games in such a short space of time has seen the management team rotate player selection to allow weary limbs to be rested and to make full use of and demonstrate the value of a large squad.

Hidden amongst the squad rotation and almost going unnoticed was a highly satisfactory first start for 17-year-old Louis Cutajar in the victory over Tilbury on Thursday last week.

Coming into the side in an unaccustomed left back position he overcame early jitters to produce an excellent performance. Goals from Joe Francis and Scott Mitchell earned the Blues the points.

Last Saturday Waltham Forest were dispatched 4-1 with Matt Nolan hitting a brace, Jamie Godbold and Gary Holt celebrating his 37th birthday the others.

Tuesday evening brought a trip to Maldon Town and a two goal victory with goals from Joe Francis and Adam Smith.

The Blues now face a run of four more away games starting with a visit to Kent to take on VCD Athletic tomorrow followed by Potters Bar Town on Tuesday.

The Reserves are now making headway into their backlog of fixtures defeating Whitton United Reserves 4-0 with goals from Joe Clark 2, Carl Poppy and Kyle Baker.

On Tuesday evening they completed a quick double over Needham Market Reserves 4-1 with two goals from Chris Bond and one each for Matthew Gauci and Joe Clark.

Tomorrow it is cup action with a Chell trophy game away to Braintree Town Reserves before returning to the Meadow on Tuesday evening when Dereham Town Reserves are the visitors.

The Youth team finished their home league fixtures in disappointing fashion with successive defeats by Dereham Town Youth 1-3 (Joe Clark) and Norwich United Youth 2-3 (Joe Clark, Sam Raven).

Next Thursday they are away to Bungay Town Youth.

In a prestigious friendly against Norwich City Under 15s the Lowestoft Town Under 15s produced an excellent display to run out 5-0 victors. Ryan Sharman and Nathan Russell hit two goals each with the other coming from Jamie Burrell.
