A STUNNING comeback from Lowestoft Town saw The Blues progress into the FA Cup first qualifying round with a victory on penalties against old rivals AFC Sudbury.

Following a fine 1-1 draw with the British Gas Southern League at the Kingsmarsh Stadium on Saturday in the FA Cup preliminary round, Micky Chapman and Ady Galagher's men bounced back from falling two goals behind at half time in the replay on Tuesday evening to make it 2-2 in the second half.

Almost 600 fans witnessed the Town's great escape at the Crown Meadow as Lowestoft overcame all the odds to beat a side who currently play one step higher than the Blues

The game was eventually decided after extra time on penalties, with the delirious Trawler Boys going home delighted after Lowestoft's 4-1 triumph on penalties.

The Blues will now be on their travels in the next round on September 13 with another eagerly-awaited game against Cambridge City - where £3,000 is up-for-grabs.

And after pocketing £750 for victory in their first FA Cup match in the Extra Preliminary Round, Lowestoft collected £1,500 on Tuesday night following their preliminary round win.
