The Suffolk club, who are 15 points clear at the top, ahead of nearest rivals Wroxham, have recruited front-runner Bowditch on a deal until the end of the season - a major coup.

Former Ipswich Town star Bowditch, who made 72 league appearances for Town between 2002 and 2009, could make his Stow debut at home to Mildenhall Town this Saturday.

The 33-year-old, who also played for Yeovil, MK Dons (227 first-team games) and Northampton during a distinguished professional career, was released by the Cobblers last summer.

Bowditch made his Town debut as a 16-year-old in an East Anglian derby, as a 71st minute substitute in a 2-0 victory at Norwich City in March, 2003. He made 419 league games during his professional career.
