Join Lowestoft Town’s promotion party
06:30 13 June 2014
A rallying call has gone out to people in Lowestoft to turn out this Sunday and back the Blues.
Celebrating Lowestoft Town’s historic achievements in gaining their first-ever promotion to the Conference set up in the play-off final in May, it is hoped hundreds of fans will turn out on Sunday to salute the Trawlerboys.
A special promotion parade has been organised by Waveney District Council, following discussions with the club, and it is being backed by EDP and its sister paper The Lowestoft Journal, who have put on the bus.
An open-top bus will leave Lowestoft’s Crown Meadow ground at 11am on Sunday – and supporters are asked to gather on London Road North, from Station Square up to the Marina, to cheer on their heroes.
The bus will proceed up London Road North and then stop at the Marina, outside BHS. Players and officials will be greeted by new mayor Roger Bellham at the theatre before they step out onto the balcony and thank fans.
A civic reception for the club will then be held, provided by the Marina and Waveney. Council leader Colin Law said: “We hope as many as people will come out on Sunday morning to celebrate a fantastic achievement for the club and for the town.
“The Trawlerboys are a true success story and they deserve a big turnout and to know how much their promotion means to the supporters.”
EDP publisher Archant will have vendors in the town with goody bags featuring a special promotion poster, copies of The EDP and the Lowestoft Journal, water, crisps and an England flag, available for £1.
