Live updates: Lowestoft Town v AFC Telford United
Lowestoft Town begin their second season at step two of the non-league pyramid with a home clash against AFC Telford United this afternoon.
Our reporter David Freezer will be at Crown Meadow for the National League North – formerly Conference North – clash as the Trawlerboys begin life without club stalwart Micky Chapman.
Ady Gallagher takes sole charge of the Blues following joint manager Chapman's decision to retire after 33 years at the club as a player and a manager.
Telford are facing a new era themselves following relegation from Conference Premier and are likely to pose a tough test for the hosts, who are trying to build on last season's 16th-placed finish.
