Lowestoft Town Club Notes by Terry Lynes

WITH both of Lowestoft Town's Christmas fixtures away to Brentwood Town and Maldon Town postponed due to waterlogged pitches it has been a quiet festive period for the Blues.

The break in action though allows the chance to review the calendar year and there can be little doubt that 2009 proved to be the most successful 12 months in the club's history.

Amongst Lowestoft's achievement are a league and county cup double for both the first and reserve teams, reaching the semi final in the FA Carlsberg Vase and the first round proper in the FA Cup for the first time for 32 years.

The end of season saw the Blues promoted for the first time in the club's history and they have made a barnstorming start to their first taste at Step 4 level as they top the Ryman League Division One North at the year's end

Lowestoft played a total of 58 competitive games during the year of which 43 were won, seven drawn and just eight brought defeats. The Blues achieved that record in style scoring 150 goals whilst conceding just 57.

Behind the scenes the club has been put on the most professional footing it has known thanks to the efforts of new chairman Gary Keyzor aided by his hardworking committee and the immense efforts of sponsors Petrogramme. The ambition of the club is there for all to see, and a business plan is in the pipeline to ensure that those ambitions can be fulfilled.

Back to the present though, and the Blues have two home league fixtures to start the New Year with Brentwood Town the visitors tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm) and Potters Bar Town at the Meadow on Tuesday (7.45pm). Andrew Fisk will be missing both games as he completes his three match suspension.

The Reserves are on their travels tomorrow with a visit to Whitton United and the Youth team returns to action on Wednesday at home to Norwich United Youth.
