Lowestoft Town Notes by Terry Lynes

THREE points from two difficult away games was a satisfactory return for the Blues this week.

At the immaculate surroundings of the Trade Recruitment Stadium, the students of CRC gave the Town a footballing lesson and fully deserved their three goal victory. It could easily have been even greater except for a series of excellent saves by Adam Rix in the second period.

The Town were pleased to see Bradley Hough return from injury but were without Ross King. Keeper Rix finished the game limping and the injury ruled him out of Tuesday's trip to Dereham Town.

The visit to Aldiss Park saw an excellent game of football keenly contested by two good teams. The Blues were by far the better side in the first half but Dereham took the second half honours. Neil Plaskett gave the Town a first half lead and then led a sterling rearguard effort for most of the second.

A late flurry of excitement at the death saw Jamie Godbold double the Blues lead in the final minute of normal time and then the Blues endured eight minutes of added time at the end of which Dereham pulled a goal back with the final whistle going before the game could restart.

Tomorrow the Blues entertain Woodbridge Town in the Ridgeons League fixture. Games against the Woodpeckers are usually high scoring affairs with both sides trying to play good attacking football. Jamie Godbold will be missing as he serves a one game suspension. Dale Cockrill's suspension has been completed but his facial injury could still keep him out of contention. There is no midweek fixture.

A training ground collision with 16-year-old Christy Finch saw Reserve team manager Kevin Gook sporting a black eye and fractured cheek. He demanded a hat trick from his young striker who was one of three 16 year olds drafted into the reserve side due to the mounting casualty list at the Meadow.

The youngster was able to oblige with two goals only against Stowmarket Reserves in his side's 5-2 victory. Jake Armes netted for the second consecutive game with Henry Wyndham and Zak Clarke getting the others. It was Clarke's first goal in senior football. Tomorrow the Reserves travel to Woodbridge Town Reserves.

The Youth team had a fine 2-1 victory over Gorleston Youth at Emerald Park. Goals from Brendan Gough and Joe Marsden gave the Town youngsters their victory in a performance marred by the sending off of Zak Clarke.

Last Wednesday they were due to entertain Burnham Ramblers Youth in the Eastern Junior Cup and next Thursday travel for the return game against Bungay Town Youth.

The U17 game against Hemsby last Sunday was postponed and they have no fixture this weekend.
