Godbold still has a lot to offer Lowestoft Town

Lowestoft Town director of football Craig Fleming believes veteran midfielder Jamie Godbold has still 'got a lot to offer' the Trawlerboys.

The 32-year-old, who recently returned from a loan spell at Gorleston, came off the bench to set up Michael Frew's late goal on Tuesday against Kirkley & Pakefield to give the Blues management team a timely reminder of the quality he has to offer.

And Fleming revealed Godbold has still got a big role to play this season as the club goes in search of promotion.

'Jamie has got quality – he has got good technique and when he is bubbly he is great around the dressing room – he has got a lot to offer,' said the former Norwich City defender. 'His role has changed at the club a little bit and I think he has found it difficult to come to terms with, which is understandable.

'But you saw what he did for the second goal – he has got great technique and a great football brain.'

Lowestoft are without a game this weekend with the club next in action against Canvey Island in the League Cup on Tuesday evening at Crown Meadow.

Fleming admitted he would have liked a game this afternoon to really crank up the pressure on Lowestoft's title rivals.

'With the way that the fixtures have gone and the games in hand it would have been nice to get a game in and put a bit of pressure on but it is what it is,' he added.

'We've just got to get on with it and deal with it. We will just get our heads down, we will have a good training session before, we'll have a good rest.

'It gives the lads that are injured just a little bit more time to get fit and hopefully by the next league game we might have a full squad to choose from.'
