Lowestoft Town Football Club are known as the Trawler Boys!

Lowestoft Town football club has come a long way since it’s early formation and after several years in the doldrums the 21st century has seen Micky Chapman team up with Ady Gallagher to bring a return to trophy winning days with the Ridgeons League title won in 2005/6 for the first time in nearly 30 years, the League Cup collected twice and the Suffolk Premier Cup brought back to the Meadow an amazing 3 times. The culmination of all that recent success came in May 2008 when joint managers Micky Chapman and Ady Gallagher proudly led their Lowestoft Town squad out onto the hallowed Wembley pitch in the F A Vase final. On a blazing hot Sunday afternoon in front of over 14,000 Lowestoft supporters, the Blues were in the lead for three quarters of the game before conceding a last minute goal to lose out to Kirkham & Wesham by the odd goal of three. However, with a thriving youth system and a seemingly endless stream of exciting new talent in the wings the future is certainly looking bright for Lowestoft Town Football Club.
