THE Team of the Month Award jinx struck again last weekend.

Having received the news on Saturday morning that they had won the March team of the month award, the Blues proceeded to put on one of the poorest displays of the season, which saw their unbeaten home league record shattered by a useful Stanway Rovers side.

The Essex side were on top for most of the game until a purple patch of three goals in 10 minutes in the latter stages seemingly won the game for the Blues.

However after moving ahead they switched off again allowing the visitors to hit two goals in the final 90 seconds.

Monday saw the indifferent form carry on in the first half of the local derby against Kirkley & Pakefield, which saw the Walmer Road side effectively win the game by the break.

The second half saw the Blues have more of the ball without ever really looking like over troubling Robert Woodcock in the K&P goal.

The Blues now go into tomorrow's game against Histon Reserves knowing that they still need a maximum of five points from the last five games to secure the Ridgeons League title.

They will be without Carl Poppy who will be starting the three match suspension following his sending off against Whitley Bay.

Andy Reynolds should be available again after missing the last two games.

The afternoon has been arranged as a special family day where children will be admitted free in conjunction with the Help and East Coast Child appeal.

That charity will also be the recipient of the £100 donation as part of the Team of the Month Award. The presentations will be made at approximately 2pm.

Tuesday sees the penultimate away game of the season when the Blues travel to Mildenhall Town. Mildenhall have recently appointed former Norwich City defender Simon Charlton as their new manager.

The reserves kept on target of going through the league season unbeaten. Last Saturday a last minute goal from Jon Lovelock gave them victory over Debenham LC Reserves.

On Tuesday it was another late goal that preserved their record with Gary Williams' successful spot kick virtually the last kick of the game in a 4-4 draw with Ipswich Wanderers Reserves.

The reserves are next in action a week tomorrow.

The youth team had to contend with a very poor pitch at Cromer Town Youths but returned with the points from a 3-1 victory.

They were due to entertain Norwich United Youths last Wednesday and have their last home game of the season next Wednesday when Gorleston Youth are the visitors.
