Lowestoft Town club notes by Terry Lynes

ALL the pre-season planning and preparations are now over as the Blues contemplate their Ryman League debut when they travel to Thamesmead Town tomorrow.

It will be a new experience for the Blues but one that is being looked forward to by the Lowestoft players, officials and supporters.

The Mead are relative newcomers to the Ryman League now starting out on their second season after finishing in 18th place last season. Like the Blues they have made six new signings in the close season.

Tuesday evening then sees Lowestoft open their home programme when Concord Rangers are the visitors to the Crown Meadow, kick off 7.45.

The Blues have met Rangers once before when a Bradley Hough goal gave the Town a single goal victory on their way to Wembley in 2008. Like Thamesmead they too joined the Ryman League last season but a more successful season saw them finish in fifth place but failing in the play offs.
