Lowestoft fans flock to Wembley

Wembley Way
Lowestoft Town fans will get a taste of Wembley Way

Ridgeons League outfit Lowestoft Town will take nearly 14,000 fans for their first trip to Wembley.

The Suffolk side, who border Norfolk, will have three times more support than Vodkat League opponents Kirkham & Wesham for Sunday's FA Vase final.

The Lancashire side are yet to pass the 4,000 mark for tickets sold.

"We can't wait, this is a dream that's going to come true," said Lowestoft chairman Geoff Pryce. "Lady Luck's sitting on our shoulder."

Lowestoft goalkeeper Andy Reynolds should be fit to play at Wembley despite suffering a dislocated shoulder during their dramatic semi-final win over Whitley Bay.

The Blues won the home leg 4-0 but went three down inside the first 20 minutes of the second leg before holding on grimly for a 4-3 aggregate win.

Dale and Darren Cockrill are set to become the first brothers to play together at the new Wembley.

Full coverage from Wembley on BBC Radio Norfolk and BBC Radio Suffolk (1400 BST).
