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.

The Essex club went into the match on the back of seven straight victories and looking to keep the pressure on London 3NE leaders Campion.
The win leaves them five points behind the leaders in second position but Beccles are down in ninth place and having not tasted victory throughout the whole of November.
Beccles face a tough task to end their losing streak as well, as they face leaders Campion next, travelling to the Essex club on Saturday hoping to not become their seventh successive victim.
