What's in your Lowestoft Journal?
As JR takes a well deserved break from the office, it will be me taking over the Lowestoft Journal sport duties for the week.
That means trying to tidy up, sub and layout around 10 pages of sporting action from England’s most easterly point – and hopefully with the help of the story machine that is Boggy (Mark Boggis), providing his partner holds off popping for one more week.
I’ve had the pleasure of following Lowestoft in their two FA Vase runs, as well as the odd Ridgeons League game, and it was fantastic to see them promoted from the Eastern Counties League for the first time in their history this summer.
And they’ve seemingly started life in the Ryman League as if they want to go straight through it and overtake King’s Lynn as the region’s top part-time outfit.
Speaking of the Linnets, you can’t beat Carl Heggs for entertainment; his interviews are always laden with jewels – sadly, most of them are not printable.
Kirkley & Pakefield have made a good start to their Ridgeons campaign as well, so it’s fair to say the world of Lowestoft is enjoying its football.
When I do the live Pink’un coverage of Norwich City matches, there is always someone who says they would love this job – and so they should.
I hope they think of subbing Lowestoft’s finest when they say it, just as much as watching City scramble to a drab draw against Walsall.
