Lowestoft Town FC have completed their fourth summer signing ahead of the start of the new Pitching In Isthmian League One North season.

With The Trawlerboys set to kick off the new campaign away at Great Wakering Rovers in just 20 days time, Blues boss Jamie Godbold has expressed delight after sealing his latest capture.

Talented defender Charlie Norman has agreed a deal to remain at Crown Meadow, after impressing as a triallist with some energetic full back performances in pre season.

A former Norwich youth, Wroxham and Sheringham defender, Charlie also had a spell playing college football in the United States with St Louis Community College Archers.

The right back becomes the fourth summer signing for The Trawlerboys - following on from the captures of talented attacking midfielder Kyle Haylock, the return of fans favourite Rob Eagle and the signing of "leader" David Hinton last month.

Blues boss Jamie Godbold said: "Charlie has been in America the last few years.

"He came back in January and played for half a season at Sheringham.
