Lowestoft Town Club Notes by Terry Lynes

IT is FA Cup, sponsored by E.ON, time for the Blues tomorrow as they travel to Milton Road to take on Cambridge City.

The Lilywhites compete in the British Gas Southern League Premier Division, which is two steps higher than what Lowestoft play. The Town will therefore once again go into the tie as underdogs but in confident mood. Please note that the admission charges at Milton Road are £10 adults, £5 senior citizens, £3 for 12 to 16 year old and under 12s free.

If the game results in a draw, the replay will be at the Crown Meadow on Tuesday evening.

Two excellent wins this week have seen the Blues continue their fine start to the season, which sees them sitting in second place behind Wivenhoe Town.

On Saturday it was very much a case of men against boys as the Blues dominated the game against Kings Lynn Reserves throughout to run out comfortable 5-0 victors. The goals were shared around with Russell Stock, Dale Cockrill, Gary McGee, Ross King and Neil Plaskett all on the scoresheet.

It was a much more difficult task on Tuesday night against Wroxham. The Yachtsmen are always competitive opponents but the Blues superior fitness told in the end as near constant second half pressure told with two goals in the final four minutes.

Dale Cockrill's equaliser will be a strong contender for goal of the season with Bradley Hough's winner demonstrating his opportunism.

If there is no cup replay, the Blues have a free week next week.

The Reserves had a free Saturday last week and tomorrow have a re-arranged fixture against Needham Market Reserves, kick off 3pm.

The Youth team's stuttering start to the new season continued last week as they crashed to a 2-5 defeat against North Walsham Town Youth. After falling five goals adrift the Town youngsters made the scoreline a bit more respectable with two late goals from Jon Lovelock and Matthew Gauci.

They were due to meet Bungay Town Youth last Wednesday and next week travel to Walsham le Willows in the League Cup on Thursday.
