Lowestoft Town v Gloucester City
\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDate: Saturday 1st November 2014\r\nCompetition: Vanarama North\r\nVenue: Crown Meadow\r\nKick-off: 3pm\r\n\r\nOpponents: Formed in 1887 after the merger of two clubs, Lowestoft enjoying a successful early history reaching the final of the FA Amateur Cup.\r\n\r\nThe Trawler Boys have reached the FA Cup First Round on six occasions, hosting Watford in front of a record home attendance of 5,000 in 1967.\r\n\r\nThe club’s recent history has also seen them enjoy immense success; reaching the FA Vase final at Wembley Stadium in 2008, losing to now fellow Conference North side AFC Fylde (then known as Kirkham and Wesham).\r\n\r\nThey won back-to-back promotions from the Eastern Counties League Premier Divison into the Isthmian Premier League where they lost an extraordinary three play-off finals in a row, before finally winning the fourth against AFC Hornchurch to take their place in the Conference North.\r\n\r\nHistory: The two clubs have only met twice before, a lively and controversial double header in the FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round in 2009.\r\n\r\nA last gasp equaliser for Lowestoft sent the Tigers to a replay where over 2,000 fans cheered the home side to a First Round tie against Wrexham.\r\n\r\nTeam news: The Tigers received positive news in regards to club captain Jack Harris, but Saturday’s game will be too soon for the skipper.\r\n\r\nMike Green is back in the squad after work commitments but Tom Webb will probably miss out with a back problem.\r\n\r\nNew striker Harry White should feature in the match for his Tiger’s debut.\r\n\r\nYou’ll be able to catch all of the action from Whaddon Road on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and Facebook (GCAFCofficial).
