Lowestoft Town FC club notes by Terry Lynes

THE first four figure crowd of the season is expected to flock to the Crown Meadow tomorrow afternoon when former Football League side Boston United are the visitors in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup.

Off-field problems have seen the Lincolnshire club demoted to step three as they re-organise.

The Pilgrims currently lie in 11th place in the Unibond Premier Division with three wins, five draws and two defeats from the 10 games played.

They have scored 12 whilst conceding 11 in those games.

Their last two games, both at home, have seen them held to a goalless draw by Whitby Town last Saturday and go down by a single goal against Retford United on Tuesday. The Blues go into the game in confident mood having moved to the top of the Ryman League Division One North on Saturday following their 3-1 victory away at Romford.

Jamie Godbold, Richard Woodrow and Greg Crane were nursing injuries and were rested from the starting line up at Romford with only Crane coming on for the final quarter.

Scott Mitchell, making only his second start of the season, received an early knock and had to be replaced after nine minutes but he was back in training on Tuesday.

The travelling Trawler Boys also made up more than half of the crowd and were complimented by the Romford officials.

Subject to no cup replays, the Blues are in action at the Meadow again on Tuesday evening when Heybridge Swifts are the visitors in a Ryman League fixture, kick off 7.45pm.

On the player front, Damian Hilton has gone to Norwich United with the Town retaining his Ryman League registration.

Craig Lewis' loan transfer to Gorleston has now been made permanent.

The Reserves made their first appearance of the season at the Meadow last Saturday defeating Crane Sports 5-2 in the Suffolk Senior Reserve Team Cup second round.

There is no fixture for the Reserves this week.

The Youth team were due to meet Dereham Town Youth in the FA Youth Cup last Wednesday with the two sides meeting again at the Crown Meadow next Wednesday in a league fixture.

The U17s game against Winterton last Sunday was postponed. They are in action against Caister this weekend.

The U15 team were 7-1 victors over Halesworth Town last week with a hat trick by Nathan Russell, two goals from Corey Thornton and one from Reece Borrett.

This week they are away to Kirkley & Pakefield.
