Trawlerboys win again

Lowestoft Town produced another accomplished performance at the impressive Carlsberg Stadium – the new home of Biggleswade Town.

LOWESTOFT Town produced another accomplished performance at the impressive Carlsberg Stadium – the new home of Biggleswade Town.

With Andy Reynolds unavailable the Blues had two new keepers on show with Phil Smith between the sticks in the first half and Jamie Greygoose the second.

Lowestoft – who have already betean Leiston, Braintree and Cambridge United in pre-season – found their rhythm form the outset as Dale Cockrill was foiled by the legs of keeper and Joe Francis screwed a shot wide of the far post.

The latter eventually broke the deadlock in the 10th minute when volleying home following a corner.

The Zamaretto League Division One Central hosts (Step Four) enjoyed a good spell just before the break with Geoffrey Banks-Smith’s effort dipping just over the bar and Lee Harman denied by a fine one-handed save by Smith.

Lowestoft were back on top in the second half though with Stuart Ainsley’s 25-yard drive tipped over the bar and Christy Finch hooking over.
