Troubles continue for Lowestoft & Yarmouth RUFC, as Beccles RUFC also extend their losing run

Lowestoft & Yarmouth are still yet to register any points on the board in London Two North East.

They remain on -1 points and at the foot of the table, following a 38-10 defeat at home against South Woodham Ferrers on Saturday.

The RFU opted to carry over a punishment arising from the club's trip to Chelmsford at the tail end of the 2012-13 campaign.

The club had been struggling to raise a side for the game and a desperate late search for players saw them include one who was not registered to play in London 2NE, resulting in the points deduction.

So far L&Y have lost nine of their 10 league fixtures, with their only win coming in a 22-10 home victory against Holt at the end of September and a points difference of -470 already.
