PLAYERS and the management team from Lowestoft Town FC revelled in the surroundings at a capacity Carrow Road yesterday.

Joint managers Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher and the Blues first team squad all walked around the Norwich City playing surface at half time of the Canaries crucial clash with table-topping West Brom.

The FA Vase finalists waved commemorative flags and Chapman, Gallagher, Jamie Godbold and Richard Woodrow held two special banners depicted with the words - We're on our way to Wembley Come on the Trawlerboys - and Town logo, as they received the hospitality of the Championship side.

There were joyous scenes as the players and managers took warm applause from the Carrow Road faithful, as they enjoyed a rare afternoon off from league and cup action.

And after enjoying their time as special guests on Saturday, it's back to football action on Tuesday as the Blues continue their preparation for the FA Vase final at the new Wembley stadium on May 11 against Kirkham & Wesham.
