LOWESTOFT Town FC maintained their stunning unbeaten start to the season with a last-gasp Ridgeons League win over Wroxham.

The Trawler Boys sunk the Yachstmen with an amazing two goal salvo in the final two minutes to complete a quick league double over the Trafford Park side with a 2-1 away win on Tuesday,

Wroxham took the lead midway through the first half with a goal for Gavin Crane. But with two minutes remaining, Dale Cockrill hit a 30-yard screamer into the back of the Wroxham net, and in injury time Lowestoft won a corner which was put over by Carl Poppy, and flicked on by Darren Cockrill for Bradley Hough to add the final touch and give Lowestoft a sensational victory. This last-gasp win was an ideal incentive to Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher's men as they warmed up for this Saturday's crucial FA Cup first qualifying round tie away at Cambridge City.

And the Blues will go into the game in great spirits as they are now nine games unbeaten this season with seven wins and two draws from their start to the 2008/9 league and cup campaign.
