LOWESTOFT Town FC have fired an early broadside to their new Ryman League opponents by confirming four new signings - taking their pre-season captures to six - who all have higher league experience and hail from a professional football background.

LOWESTOFT Town FC have fired an early broadside to their new Ryman League opponents by confirming four new signings - taking their pre-season captures to six - who all have higher league experience and hail from a professional football background.

The Blues management duo of Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher, chairman Gary Keyzor, secretary Terry Lynes and coach Craig Fleming welcomed Craig Bussens, Chris Bond, Andrew Fisk and Adam Smith to Crown Meadow last night.

And after signing on the dotted line, the new recruits met up with their teammates - including recent capture Matt Halliday - for the start of pre-season training.

“Lowestoft Town are pleased to announce that last night (Thursday, July 2) four new signings have been made,” a club spokesman said.

19-year-old Bussens is a right sided midfielder who hails from Norwich. Formerly with Norwich City and Cambridge United Academy, Craig went on loan to AFC Sudbury in September 2008 and came to the attention of the Blues after starring in the Suffolk Premier Cup semi final against Lowestoft in March.

Chris Bond, 18, is a Lowestoft lad, who plays at right back. A former Ipswich Town youth starlet he joined the Lincoln City Youth Academy upon leaving school. But injuries hampered his progress and he returns to his home town to kickstart his career.

The other two signings both played for Kings Lynn last season. 21-year-old midfielder Andrew Fisk is a former product of Norwich City's Youth system, who went onto make almost a century of first team appearances for Lynn.

23-year-old Adam Smith is a former Norwich City Reserves and Peterborough United product who has had two spells with Kings Lynn. Equally happy at left back, left midfield or in the centre, 'Smudger' links in with fellow new signings Fisk, Halliday and Greg Crane as former City youth starlets that have been snapped up by the Blues in what has been a busy few weeks.
