A long-standing community partnership is being extended in time for the new football season.
With Lowestoft Town FC set to kick off the new Pitching In Isthmian League One North season away at Great Wakering Rovers on August 13, The Trawlerboys' Crown Meadow home ground is being re-named the Fosters Solicitors Community Stadium.
As Fosters Solicitors extends its community partnership with The Trawlerboys, officials from the legal firm and the club admitted they were "delighted" after sealing the new agreement for the naming rights to Crown Meadow - as they celebrated a successful 10-year partnership in style.
The agreement will also continue to see the Fosters Solicitors name and branding featuring prominently on the back of The Blues shirts - as it has done for 10 years - with the firm's branding also visible at the stadium.
The legal firm, which has a branch on Regent Road in Lowestoft, has now partnered with The Blues for over a decade, making it one of the club’s longest-running commercial relationships.
This season, the Fosters Solicitors Community Stadium will host both Lowestoft Town and Gorleston FC home fixtures, after the east coast neighbours agreed a ground share agreement.
Lowestoft Town chairman Gary Keyzor said: “We would like to thank everyone at Fosters Solicitors for their continued support of our club.
