Football: Lowestoft Town could be set for a shock move to the Southern League next season.

The Trawlermen, who won the Ridgeons Premier this season, have applied for promotion up the non-league pyramid, and it is believed the Southern League is where they will end up. An announcement is expected today.

A meeting of League representatives were thrashing out League structures yesterday and although the Ryman League may have been Lowestoft's preferred option, it is thought the Southern League is where they will end up.
