HUNGRY for more, a rampant Lowestoft Town FC are up for a double.

The new Ridgeons League Premier Division champions are intent on finishing the season in style with the Suffolk Premier cup final to be played against Needham Market at Portman Road next Tuesday.

With four games to be played in the next seven days, The Blues could perhaps be forgiven for winding down at the end of a tough campaign….but yesterday joint boss Micky Chapman warned that his players won't be letting up in the final run-in.

“Yes, we've won the league and this is a great achievement,” he told The Journal.

“It's great to be champions, great to be where we are but we've still got four games left and we're not taking our foot off the gas.”

For chairman Gary Keyzor, it has been a whirlwind seven months ever since he took the helm at Crown Meadow.

Admitting he was delighted and very proud of the club's achievements - with the first team having won the league on Tuesday night with a 3-1 away win at Mildenhall, the cup final to look forward to, a semi-final place in the FA Vase and the successful reserves team also being up for a double having already won their league - Keyzor said: “Winning the league was a tremendous achievement for everyone concerned with Lowestoft Town FC and once again our fantastic fans turned out in force to witness this.

“I am very proud of the management team and players, the league title is not won on one game but being consistent over the whole season.

“It makes all the hard work that everyone puts in worthwhile when you achieve what you set out to do when the season started back in August.

“It makes me very proud to be part of such a wonderful club.”

And with the season all but over, attentions will now turn to possible promotion as Lowestoft seek election into a new league.

“When I came on board I had every ambition to take this club further, and the first stage could now possibly become a reality after only seven months,” Keyzor said.

“But this depends on what league the FA offers us.”
