Lowestoft Town chairman Gary Keyzor admits the Blues need further outside investment if they are to firmly establish themselves as a Conference outfit.

After winning the Ryman League Premier Division play-offs, Keyzor admits the transition to Conference football has been an eye-opener for the Trawlerboys.

The Blues chief, who has bankrolled the club's rise from the Eastern Counties to the Conference in five years, insists the club's ambition to one day become a Football League outfit remains.

However, Keyzor is looking for business-minded individuals to join the club's board and help Lowestoft on to the next level.

'For the club to kick on we need further investment,' said Keyzor. 'We have got great people working at this club but if we want to continue like we have then we need more of the right people to come on the board.

'So if there is anyone out there that feels they can make a difference then please do not hesitate to get in touch.'

Keyzor admitted the step up in becoming a Conference outfit has been difficult and a drain on resources.

'On and off the field it has been a real education for everyone,' he said. 'I've got to admit that it has been tough. Whether it be the travelling or whatever, it has been very difficult for everyone. But we are not looking to stand still. If you don't look to move forward then you will be left behind and we don't want to see the last five years wasted.

'We've worked far too hard for all that to go to waste.'

Lowestoft, who host Stockport in the league tomorrow, still have work to do to preserve the Conference status.

Despite the difficulties they have faced Keyzor is sure there is enough talent in the squad to steer clear of the relegation zone.

'We've got enough about us. We've had terrible luck with injuries and we've had a few decisions that haven't gone our way. But I think you will see us pull away from any danger.'
