Lowestoft Town eased to an impressive victory over a bright Bognor Regis side at Crown Meadow.

Jack Ainsley’s fourth minute strike set the Blues on their way and, had it not been for Bognor goalkeeper Mark Zawadski, Lowestoft’s margin of victory could have been far greater.

Lowestoft got off to a dream start thanks to a fine finish from Jack Ainsley. Robert Eagle continued where he left off after his man of the match performance against Thamesmead, getting free down the left before fizzing a shot across the edge of the six yard box.

Zawadski could only deflect the ball into the path of Ainsley, who coolly swept the ball home from eight yards.

Only a fantastic save from Zawadski prevented Lowestoft from going further in front when he clawed away Lee Smith’s free-kick from 20 yards.

But the Blues were carved open in the 28th minute resulting in Terry Dodd going through on goal but Ashlee Jones was quickly off his line to deny the striker.

Bognor defender Craig Robson then had a good chance when Kane Wills’ free-kick found him completely free at the back post but his header flew agonisingly wide for the visitors.
