LOWESTOFT returned from their travels with two excellent victories under their belt and a further six points in the bag.

At Felixstowe on Saturday, they were up against a side strengthened in recent weeks with an influx of experienced players.

However it was only an inspired performance by home keeper Ben Nower, which prevented a much larger winning margin.

On Tuesday evening the long trip to Wisbech saw the Blues adapt to a difficult surface and dominate the game with Reece Hunn starring. The diminutive wide player hit two goals and laid on the third for Gary McGee.

Tomorrow afternoon it is back to the Meadow with Tiptree United the visitors.

The Jam Makers were First Division champions last season and have consolidated nicely in mid-table with a side full of experienced Ridgeons League players.

The match ball is being sponsored by Mick Chapman of Ridgeons Ltd.

Striker Danny Mitchell has been made available by the Crown Meadow outfit to go out on loan.

The young centre forward, who is a product of the club's flourishing youth development programme, wants to gain further experience of Ridgeon's League football in order to stake a claim for a regular first team place.

“The management team have reluctantly agreed to accept his request and believe it could prove to be beneficial to Danny and Lowestoft Town,” a club spokesman said this week.

Any interested clubs should contact club chairman Gary Keyzor.

The Reserves were held to a 3-3 draw by Haverhill Rovers Reserves in the Chell Trophy last Saturday.

They are also in action on Wednesday evening when they travel down the A12 to Leiston Reserves.

Their scheduled game against Debenham Leisure Centre Reserves last Tuesday fell foul of a saturated Crown Meadow pitch, which also caused the postponement of the Youth team's fixture against Gorleston Youth the following night.

Next Wednesday the Youth team entertain Norwich United Youth.

With only eight fit players the U17 side had to forfeit their League Cup semi-final against Sole Bay.

This Sunday they are due to play Swindell.
