Lowestoft Railway 2nds 3-2 Norwich City 6ths

by Jean Scrivener

It was to be another test for the fledgling Railway side with the experienced City team coming to test their credentials.

The soundtrack

from the jukebox this week brought up the Greatest Hits of Prince.

Norwich started strongly applying strong attacks which were repelled

by solid defensive work like parking a 'little red corvette' in front

of their goal. When they did find there way through Dick 'Alphabet

street' Alexander was rock solid.

Lowestoft slowly awoke from their slumber as the two week lay off

looked to be 'A sign of the times'. Until they started running and

breaking at pace causing City problems on the break at the back both

sides nearly became 'Delirious' as the game swung back and forth. But

no one could break the deadlock before halftime.

The second half started more positively as Dave 'raspberry beret'

scored a fine solo effort Railway pressed forward. He asked the

youngster have 'u got the look' and several good chances came and went

before Ollie 'Purple Rain' Payne smashed home a short corner to make

it 2-0. But Norwich always looked threatening everytime they came

forward and soon it was 2-1.

Railway were under pressure as the heavens opened and down came the

hail. Then good play from Berry again saw him score reverse stick and

praise come from his team mates as 'Nothing compares to you'.

But back came city to get another goal form one of their fifteen short

corners which Railway had managed to repel to set up a tense finish

but luckily Railway held out, 'Cream' of the youngsters was Harry

Gissing with a fine display at left back.
